Jake Plummer on Tim Tebow: ďWhen he accepts that we know that he loves Jesus Christ, I think Iíll like him a little better.Ē

http://sportsradiointerviews.com/2011/11/21/jake-plummer-tim-tebow-mike-shanahan-denver-broncos/

Did you ever think the city of Denver would go crazy for a quarterback who canít complete a forward pass?

ď[Laughs] Iím telling you I came in at the wrong time down there. He is a winner though. I like that because I think the town and the fans and everybody there Ė they are craving a winner. They lost one when I was run out of town. I donít have to say it. We won a lot of games when I was playing. It wasnít all me. The team was Rod Smith, John Lynch, all those guys. I had some ballers that could play like Mike Anderson. I didnít do it all, but we won and I think you can see with Tebow. He knows heís not the only cog down there as a piece of that puzzle that is making them win and helping them win. They have a belief in the kid. Thatís really special because they make such a big deal about intangibles and height and arm strength and leaping ability and bench press and 40-time and all this crap that really means nothing when it is crunch time. Tebow, regardless of whether I wish heíd just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates, I think heís a winner and I respect that about him. I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ then I think Iíll like him a little better. I donít hate him because of that, I just would rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoffÖlike you know, I understand dude where youíre coming fromÖ.but he is a baller. He knows how to win and when your teammates believe in you that you can do good things and thatís what they are doing. They are winning. Thatís fun to see.Ē

You were 39-15 in Denver and played extremely well given the pressure of having to play that position in Denver. Mike Shanahan really gave you the shaft. I admire that you had the balls to put him on blast the last few years and look now in Washington the guy is completely exposed:

ďYeah and I donít like to see that. I mean I donít want to see anybody struggle. Iím not sitting here gloating or feeling better about his lack of success down there. As time goes you learn more things. Iím here hanging out with my buddies from college. Jason Verdugo from St.Paul, Minnesota, heís a baseball coach for Hampton University. He said ĎGod when we were 21 [years old] we thought we knew everything and thought we were old and we thought god we know what weíre doing. Now you look back and Iím 36 and Iím looking back on that and I didnít know anything back then and look what I know now. In retrospect and hindsight you see things. Things play out and you learn if you keep your eyes and ears open. Hey I was lucky to get the opportunity to play for [Mike] Shanahan. He helped turn my career around and gave me a chance to show that I was a winner regardless of how things went down. His style is just what it is. I think we are seeing he isnít the special coach we thought he was. Heís a great coach, but heís not like some of those guys that will take a playerÖCoach [John] Fox man look at what he is doing. You think he is going to force Tebow to throw 30 times a game? No. They are going to try to win with what he can do and it is kind of fun to see since they are bucking the system in the NFL. They are running the option. Are you kidding me?Ē

How long can the Broncos continue to run the option offense and what was the pressure like being the next quarterback in Denver after John Elway?

ďWhen are they going to stop that [option offense]? I donít know man. Thatís why you wont see me on ESPN prognosticating or trying to analyze what they do. They are going to do it until it gets stopped and probably are going to keep doing it until Tebow can take a drop and hit an out route or a comeback and until he can do that then why would they change? If he canít ever do that, which letís be realistic the guy is phenomenal athlete. I think if takes the time and gets the right coaching and has people surrounding him with patience and putting effort in. Heís willing to learn. You can hear it in his words. I think heíll end up becoming the thrower we expected him to be immediately. Right now he is winning and thatís all that matters man. I think the town and the fans in Denver they loved John Elway for one reason. He didnít win every game he played, but you know what he brought a belief there and the fans never gave up in a game. They always knew that they had him running the show behind the reigns and they had a chance. I had that for awhile there in Denver. Thatís a special feeling and I can see Tebow building that up right now. I mean belief from the whole entire stadium of 70,000 screaming fans can be a powerful, motivational thing. It can be a powerful energy to feel for a whole entire team. You guys get a feeling from what you do. Itís exciting. Imagine what weíre doing when we are out there on the field, so I donít know. Weíll see what happens. You can never tell. They are enjoying it now, so right on. Go win some more games.Ē

Finally update us on your team handball career? You are getting more serious as the years go by?

ďI am notÖI am actually getting less serious. I had a little bit of an issue with my back and kind of health wise. Iím kind of backing off as far as the competitive side of handball goes and playing just for the love of it. Thatís the thing. Itís a sport that I am going to play forever and hopefully forever until I canít really move at all, but even then Iíll get a really good doubles partner. Itís fun. I am doing what I can do. We had our tournament in October and it went really well trying to teach a bunch more of the young kids in the youth how to play the game. I believe in this day and age it is important to have a life sport you can play forever and football ends for all of us. Thereís not a guy that will play until he is 60 in the league. That never, ever, ever will happen and so getting a sport you can do up until your 70′s and 80′s and even your 90′s. Thereís 90-year old handball players that have been playing for 60-70 years. I try to expose the kids to that because it is something fun for them.Ē

Curious: how did he actually quit? Do you mean he refused to play?

Or do you mean more metaphorically he stopped caring (which he admitted to)? Or do you mean that he retired instead of permitting a trade to the Bucs?

Just curious, and not trying to be sarcastic. I hear people on this board saying he quit and I'm trying to understand that mentality.

Orton: quitter. Absolutely. He demanded a trade. Plummer? Not so sure.

The part where he admitted he no longer cared and mailed it in. Followed by the part where he physically quit playing at a relatively young age, despite saying "my childhood dream was to win a superbowl." I loved rooting for Plummer 2003-2005, probably because I loved it when the Broncos won routinely. But he quit metaphorically, then literally. Nobody "ran him out of town" except himself. If he would have spent half the effort trying to compete as he has spent publicizing his butthurt, he might have actually retired with a ring.

When you get benched for a rookie after leading a team to 7-4 and then traded the following off-season....That's pretty much the definition of getting run out of town, no?

He admitted that he didn't give a shiat about being there in 2006. His play reflected that. After two consecutive losses to division rivals... including arguably his worst performance as a Bronco at KC... he was benched. His own play, and his admitted lack of interest ran him out of town.

Plummer's such a POS. Why do they keep doing the same lame interview with the guy year after year?

Nobody cares about Plummer. He doesn't stand for anything but his selfishness, hidden behind a facade of what Pat Tillman did, parading it around as his own mentality, f'n coward. "Look at me, I grew a beard. I'm a rebel. I walked away from the league, just like my bro Pat did, only I was too much of a pussy to protect the country, so I moved to Idaho to play handball... i'm rad! Tebow is square!"

As always he takes his parting shots at Shanahan, right or wrong. I'm glad his dense ass finally realized he was an ultimate loser on the pro circuit until Shanahan's scheme resurrected his W/L record. Too bad he can't figure out that he wasn't run out of town, merely people came to realize we could never win the big one with his dead weight holding us back in big games.

What a scrub.

I always liked Plummer. Denver didnt have many other options at the time after Griese flamed out. But he did fold up his tent in Denver. Hell, he could have made a run at a ring in Tampa with Gruden, but took his ball and went home.

I won't ever hate Plummer, guy competed but wasnt the answer. Dont see how he has anything relavent to say though.

He didn't interview himself. Obviously a lot of people like to hear from him or he wouldn't be followed around so much. Not to mention, nobody would click on the links otherwise.


Tebowís got way more upside on his worst day than you did on your best.

Upside is just the nice way of saying he hasn't done it yet. I hope he does fulfill all that potential and turn that upside/potential into reality, but until that day comes, it's only natural that there will be some who say he can't. Although that's not even what Plummer said. Did you even read/see the interview?

I did read what he said, he's just not doing himself or Tebow any favors by bashing him about his religion, it just shows what an idiot he is. I never liked the move that brought him to Denver in the first place and this is one more good reason to convince me of the same.

Plummer IS AN IDIOT. Go post another QB poll, like you're some objective 3rd party...youíre on the Tebow Haters list too so spare me alright. Plummer was the only available free agent available that wasn't signed at the time when the Broncos needed a QB. If we'd of had a QB of any descent talent many of the teams of the last decade would have been possible Super Bowl winners with the tremendous running game the Broncos had then.

All Plummer could do with such a team was win one playoff game and pull off the biggest choke job ever in the AFC Championship Game. That team with a better QB goes on and kills the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. Instead with his brilliant performance the Broncos lost and have slide down the tubes every since.

Now the Broncos actually have a shot at making a playoff run for the first time in a while and Plummer has to pile on? Why? Because it must make him feel better about himself since he left Denver a shamed man. You talk about Haters Iím the President of Plummer Haters Club heís is the biggest Bum ever and blew a great chance to win at least 1 championship and possibly more.

So you can't say Tebow sucks cause he has a winning record, but you can say Plummer sucked even though he had a winning record? Tebow inspires the defense to play better, but Plummer relied on the defense to win games? Hypocrites.... Tebow would have ran on the field and tackled Big Ben when he was shooting off the double guns in that AFC championship game.

Given that people start Tebow threads to worship/hate the guy with absolutely NO link to anything, I don't see the ripping over putting up Jake's take. Guy choked. That game and the DW killing and the effect that had on the lockerroom with BM pretty much greased the skids for the slide, but I have a hard time working up real dislike for Jake. He's another pampered rich jock, but so far as I know he hasn't assaulted anyone. But seeing him still carrying a woody over shanahan is pretty rich. If he invests with Lenny Dykstra, I'll toast a beer to fate.

Tebow has played 8 games, did you take math in school? How many did Plummer have as a starter?

Also the team that Plummer had around him was 10 times the one Tebow is laboring with on offense. The running game won games for the Broncos not Plummer's amazing play at QB. He did more to lose games than win them. He had 2 good seasons in his whole sorry career the one where he lead the Cardinals to a wildcard playoff win and the season where in the end he blew chucks in the AFC Champ. Game.

That's not at all how it went down. He was signed like the minute FA opened and it was just a technicality. He was the main target before teh 2002 season even ended.

Okay let me rephrase, Plummer was the only FA QB worthy of being signed. The crop of available FAís that year sucked and as it was Plummer was the one who sucked the least. Is that a better way to say it? I was not cheering for Plummer in his last game I can tell you that, I couldnít wait for Cutler to take his job because he played like a complete bum that season until Shanny finally yanked him.

All Plummer did was win. When he took over the whole team played better. The defensive guys loved him. The only thing that held him back was that the coaching staff had a secret plan for him to fail, so they could trade up in the draft and take a rookie QB, because they didn't think Plummer could throw the ball well enough. I mean honestly how many times were they going to run that bootleg, its like they wanted Plummer to get hurt so they could replace him.

I mean honestly how many times were they going to run that bootleg, its like they wanted Plummer to get hurt so they could replace him.

ROFL!

Mike Shanahan had a secret plan for Plummer to fail! Holy cow! Ha!

It's totally spot on. What it didn't mention was that they had to get him to a big enough stage to fail on too! That's why they went to the AFCCG before pulling the rug out from underneath him and forcing him to throw all those interceptions

Mikes must have a secret plan for the redskins with his 6 game losing streak!

Will always respect Shanny for what he pulled off in the late 90's but Bowlen was justified in firing his old pal. Hell I even got to know shanny a little bit on a personal level. We chatted numerous times about the omane, the bus, etc. Very personable and nice guy. Hell one time he radioed into security to ask "The boys with the bus at training camp to turn the stereo down". The message to us was "We appreciate your enthusiasm but it's too loud!". ;D

Anyhow the past is the past. It's a new era. Love it or not it's the Tebow era.

Young Bronco fans are now entering into our stadium excited with the fact that we have a shot at winning. That hasn't been the case in many years. They don't care about Elway, Plummer, Morton. TEBOW is what they care about now. Go Broncos!

I was being sarcastic, that's all the same stuff people say about Tebow today.

Asked about Plummer's remarks in an interview on ESPN's First Take, Tebow said:

"If you're married, and you have a wife, and you really love your wife, is it good enough to only say to your wife 'I love her' the day you get married? Or should you tell her every single day when you wake up and every opportunity?

"And that's how I feel about my relationship with Jesus Christ is that it is the most important thing in my life. So any time I get an opportunity to tell him that I love him or given an opportunity to shout him out on national TV, I'm gonna take that opportunity. And so I look at it as a relationship that I have with him that I want to give him the honor and glory anytime I have the opportunity. And then right after I give him the honor and glory, I always try to give my teammates the honor and glory.

"And that's how it works because Christ comes first in my life, and then my family, and then my teammates. I respect Jake's opinion, and I really appreciate his compliment of calling me a winner. But I feel like anytime I get the opportunity to give the Lord some praise, he is due for it."

You should've told him that you were trying to mimic the crowd noise that they'd have to deal with on the road.

I just vomited a little. I wake up and tell her to go start the coffee.
