Limited Mistakes

I mentioned the offensive line holding up well, but Brock Glenn showed a much improved mental clock. He still held onto the ball a split second too long at times, but overall, he did a good job navigating the pocket and showed the ability to escape pressure with his legs. Glenn rolled out from pressure and made a couple of throws on the run. He also stepped up in the pocket to pick up some yards when nothing was open. The time he escaped pressure to get a throw off to an open Darion Williamson that fell incomplete(pass was a tad too high) was good to see.

I think Glenn was only sacked two or maybe three times, but one was the costly strip sack. I know they practice ball security, but there are a lot of dynamics in play, with guys rushing the passer. He threw two interceptions, but only one was his fault. One bounced off of the hands of Kyle Morlock that should have been caught. The other was a poor decision and throw. That poor throw, fumble, and a bad check at the line early in the game was about it regarding poor decisions. It's not like he threw a ton of passes that were close to getting intercepted like the Louisville game.
