"Although almost every deep ball needs alittle adjustment by the WR to catch it, Plummer should have thrown perfectly into Ash's hands while Ash just runs in a straight line and with his arms extended.
"The reason he couldn't get open was that Plummer didnt use the force to hinder the cornerbacks.
Jesus! Talk about exaggerations!! I havent heard such swill from the most rabid anti-Bronco Oakland and KC fans here.
Man, for a supposed Bronco fan, you've got a serious Lelie hate Jones goin'.
All of us here who have supported Lelie have consistently acknowledged in almost every post in which we highlight his skills and positive qualities, that he also has a ways to go, and have predicted all along that it would take him longer than a guy from a top-tier school to bust out.
Like many here, I too get pissed as hell at Plummer when he has the all too frequent mind fart during decision time, or lofts flutter balls on deep routes, and I get ticked at Lelie when he drops one he should have caught (a far less frequent occurrance last year than previously, which I would have thought would be a good sign for all Bronco fans), but I wake up everyday wishing Plummer the very best and praying that he'll find a way to put it all together the very next week.
I'm excited for Plummer this year as well, and trust this is the year he moves from a very talented, but maddeningly inconsistent QB to finally gelling all the way after 8 years, and busts out along with the rest of the team.
However, anytime the subject of Lelie comes around and any of us says anything nice about the guy, I get the distinct feeling you've got a serious hate issue with him (or is it mainly with those of us who support the guy), either way it's a bit odd with the moniker of 'DB-Freak'.
Nevertheless, may the force be with you, and hopefully both Plummer and Lelie will be sipping Mai Tais at the Pro Bowl come the first Sunday in Feb, a week after they've hoisted the Lombardi Trophy!
