Description: Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith failed to endorse Josh McCown as his starting quarterback according to PewterReport.com.
Insight: Who can blame him? McCown quarterbacked Tampa Bay to a 56-14 loss in Atlanta while second-year man Mike Glennon led the team to an upset victory in Pittsburgh. Smith may finally realize that Glennon gives his team the best chance to win. Owners can drop McCown in all leagues.

Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown is on the inactive list for Week 4 due to his thumb injury
Insight: Mike Glennon gets the start with Mike Kafka as the backup. There is no guarantee McCown gets his job back if Glennon plays well.
 
9/24/2014 1:30:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown is expected to miss Week 4 due to his thumb injury, according to Greg Auman, Bucs beat reporter for the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: McCown hasn't been completely ruled out , but he called it "very unlikely." Assume Mike Glennon gets the start and prepare accordingly.

Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown is expected to miss two weeks due to his thumb injury.
Insight: McCown hasn't been anywhere near as good as he was last season with Chicago. He has two touchdowns and four interceptions this season. Second-year quarterback Mike Glennon will presumably take over and if he plays well he could stay in there longer.
 
Cold9/19/2014 8:41:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown could miss one or two games according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: This might not be a bad thing the way McCown is playing. We don't wish injury on anyone, but McCown has looked awful, throwing four interceptions in three games and losing all three starts to begin 2014. Second-year quarterback Mike Glennon will presumably take over, but head coach Lovie Smith says McCown will be the starter when healthy.
 
Cold9/19/2014 8:54:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown, who injured the thumb on his throwing hand Thursday night, is quickly becoming a "worst offseason signing" candidate.
Insight: McCown ha been ineffective all season including last night before the injury. He was supposed to rebuild the passing game in the image of the Bears where he averaged more than 300 ypg in five starts, but he's been horrible. Even if healthy he cannot be counted on in fantasy leagues.
 
9/18/2014 10:14:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown injured the thumb on his throwing hand and his return is questionable.
Insight: McCown had been ineffective while out there as the Falcons have demolished the Bus in the first half. McCown was 5-of-12 passes for 58 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. Mike Glennon should play the rest of the way.
 
9/16/2014 2:56:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown completed 16-of-21 passes for 179 yards, no touchdowns and one interception against the Rams.
Insight: We're still waiting for the "Chicago Bears passing offense' to arrive in south Florida. McCown and big receivers Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans are yet to produce big fantasy points.
 
8/23/2014 7:09:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown completed 13-of-16 passes for 112 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Buccaneers third preseason game.
Insight: McCown led the Bucs to three scoring drives before Mike Glennon replaced McCown in the second half. His touchdown was a 26-yard strike to Mike Evans in the back of the endzone. McCown has completed 20-of-27 passes for 178 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in three preseason starts. McCown is a low-end QB2. was 2-for-4 for 20 yards and a "pick-six." He didn't get much help from his offensive line. They will all have to be much better or fantasy owners will start to devalue everyone on the Bucs' offense.
 
8/9/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown did not look very good in his debut under center.
Insight: McCown was 2-for-4 for 20 yards and a "pick-six." He didn't get much help from his offensive line. They will all have to be much better or fantasy owners will start to devalue everyone on the Bucs' offense.
 
3/12/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay coach Lovie Smith already has named Josh McCown the starting quarterback for the 2014 season, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. The Buccaneers signed McCown away from the Bears on Wednesday.
Insight: Looks like the Mike Glennon era is over already. McCown had his best season as a pro in Marc Trestman's system last season, throwing for 1,829 yards, 13 TDs and one INT in eight games and posting a 109 QB rating. Smith's conservative offense won't allow McCown to duplicate that level of production.
 
3/12/2014 2:25:00 PM
Description: Josh McCown will be a Buccaneer in 2014.
Insight: The two sides reached a deal moments ago. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, it's a two-year agreement. This certainly isn't good news for Mike Glennon (19 TD, 83.9 rating last season).
 
3/12/2014 10:41:00 AM
Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, former Bears quarterback Josh McCown is likely to end up either in Houston or Tampa Bay.
Insight: The Texans are looking at McCown as a stop gap for whatever rookie quarterback they end up drafting in May. Of course, McCown would be reunited with former Chicago coach Lovie Smith if he signed with the Buccaneers. The Jets are also said to be interested in McCown, though Schefter considers them a longshot.

Description: Soon-to-be free agent Josh McCown is not considering retirement. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: Why would he? The 34-year-old McCown should be one of the most sought after quarterbacks on the open market this offseason. His 109.0 QB rating this past season for Chicago was a career-high.
 
12/12/2013 2:15:00 PM
Description: Bears backup QB Josh McCown put together a great streak as Jay Cutler's replacement, but Cutler has been named the starter for Week 15.
Insight: McCown threw for 348 or more yards in each of the last three games with nine touchdown passes and just one interceptions. Fantasy owners will be sad to see him sit.
 
11/18/2013 3:05:00 PM
Description: Bears backup QB Josh McCown will start again in Week 12 against the St. Louis Rams with Jay Cutler already having been ruled out due to an ankle injury.
Insight: McCown has won both his starts this season, but knows there is no QB controversy and that when healthy Cutler is the starter. He's face a tough Rams pass rush Sunday. McCown has been more balanced in his targeting Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery than Cutler.
 
11/11/2013 3:19:00 PM
Description: Bears backup QB Josh McCown will start again in Week 11 with Jay Cutler already having been ruled out due to an ankle injury.
Insight: McCown was solid in both starts when Cutler was sidelined by a groing injury in Week 7 and 9. He's likely to start in Week 12 as well, though facing the Rams' pass rush isn't fun.
 
10/20/2013 6:10:00 PM
Description: Bears backup QB Josh McCown completed 14-of-20 for 204 yards and a touchdown in relief of Jay Cutler (groin) Sunday against the Redskins.
Insight: McCown was able to get the ball to Alshon Jeffery (four catches, 105 yards) and Brandon Marshall (6-75) while hitting Martellus Bennett for a fourth-quarter TD. The Bears have a bye in Week 8 but if McCown has to play in Week 9 at Green Bay fantasy owners will still be able to use Chicago's skill-position players.
 
11/13/2012 2:12:00 PM
Description: Quarterback Josh McCown is expected to be signed by the Chicago Bears, according to Jeff Dickerson.
Insight: After what we saw from Jay Cutler's backup Jason Campbell, McCown couldn't help but be an upgrade. The Bears face the tough San Francisco 49ers defense this weekend, so even a healthy Cutler probably wouldn't be a viable fantasy option in Week 11.
 
8/31/2012 7:21:00 PM
Description: Quarterback Josh McCown has been released by the Chicago Bears.
Insight: McCown threw for two touchdowns and four interceptions in three games for the Bears in 2011. With McCown no longer on the team, former Redskins and Raiders QB Jason Campbell will be the backup to starter Jay Cutler this season.
