Jake's first home game vs the Raiders in 2003 was a great Broncos moment. Jake was hardly great in the game but after two road wins, it was good to see Denver whip Oakland's ass in front of a National audience. I guess he did have a GREAT first quarter that night.
Jake was awful in his first game that featured the Jon Kitna flop pass to Ian Gold. And in game 2 in San Diego, you could tell Mike Shanahan was forcing some TD passes for Jake to improve his TD INT ratio and his confidence.
It was only the second time 'post merger' that we started 2-0 with two road wins, and with the defending AFC Champs coming to town, I was curious to see how Jake would handle everything.
Jake showed great flashes that night and scored on a great bootleg as we dominated the first quarter. He also hit a few deep passes that had me excited.
