Smith said he has no regrets about opening the season with McCown as the starter, explaining that the organization simply got an earlier-than-expected look at the quarterback of the future in Week 4.
Although Glennon's numbers are slightly better than McCown's, the Bucs had just 64 total yards at halftime in Pittsburgh. Outside of the final two drives Sunday, the offense has struggled regardless of the quarterback under center.
With McCown still undecided about surgery, Smith has the luxury of approaching the situation on a week-to-week basis. It also allows Glennon the opportunity to build on Sunday's impressive fourth quarter.
If Glennon stumbles instead at New Orleans, Smith might be inclined to turn back to McCown.
