Mike Glennon's teammates liken his looks to Napoleon Dynamite

On Sunday, with regular starting quarterback Josh Freeman on the bench, the Tampa Bay Buccanneers will start rookie Mike Glennon at quarterback, instead.

But if Glennon removes his helmet anytime during the game, some might be led to believe it's not actually Glennon barking out the offensive plays, they might think it's the red-headed and clumsy kid known as Napoleon Dynamite.

Yes, according to his Buccanneers teammates, Glennon looks eerily similar to Mr. Dynamite.

“I told him, ‘You should have worn the Pedro shirt like on Napoleon Dynamite,''' cornerback Darrelle Revis said, via the Tampa Bay Tribune. “At first, he was like, ‘What?' And I was like, ‘Yeah, Napoleon Dynamite.' He was like, ‘Oh, OK.' He kind of got the joke late.''

Hey, if Glennon can throw a football anywhere near the distance Mr. Dynamite's Uncle Rico allegedly could (a quarter mile), then he should be in good shape on Sunday.
