Default Jake Plummer appreciation thread!!

Jake is now a handball player and a retired NFL quarterback. He has gotten much negativity here on the Mane.

This a chance to say farewell to Jake.

I for one really appreciate what he brought to Denver. After that stiff Brian Griese, Jake was a breath of fresh air. He worked very hard both off season and during the season to be the best player he could for the Broncos. Sure he had a down year his last year but that should not discount the good things he did for the Broncos. Heck he was a 75% winner for us.




Thanks Jake!

You walked away from 10 million dollars to follow your heart and enjoy life that takes lots of guts.

All the best to you Jake Plummer!!!!!

Funny that he lost his Handjob tourney in the big match.

CHOKE!

I bet his Brother is looking to cut his ass.

Plummer update

Former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer and older brother Eric advanced to the semifinals of the Colorado Open handball championships over the weekend at the Denver Athletic Club.

The Plummers were defeated in the semifinals by eventual champions Bear Meiring and Jay Sprenger. The Plummers upset the No. 2-seeded team to make it to the semifinals.

"The Plummers did great. We had them seeded in the middle and they were really strong," tournament director Stan Wolpoff said.

Plummer retired from the NFL after 10 seasons on March 2.

I hope he gets an opportunity to "flip 'em off" as he heads out the door, although I doubt he'd do that. They deserve nothing less as a "thanks" for the thanksgiving game treatment. That was classless.

There are dozens of Jake bashing threads, what say we leave this one for those that appreciated Jake Plummer and what he brought to Denver.

don't player hate on "The Snake"...I know this is hard to believe for some, but maybe he just didn't feel like playing. Though, in all honesty, for 5 million, I would be the back up for the Winnipeg Bluebombers......

Thanks for the left-handed pass from our own goal line.
Thanks for the crappy AFC Title game performance.
Thanks for the 4 turnovers to start off the 2006 season.
Thanks for not being able to handle the pressure of a ROOKIE behind you.
Thanks for the poor reads.
Thanks for the poor throws.
Thanks for flipping off the fans.
Thanks for play adequate enough at times to make half of this board actually believe that YOU should be given the credit for being a 40 win QB here in Denver.

(Sarcasm over)

Which leads me to my last "thank you".....to be given to the ones who REALLY deserve it........thanks to your teammates and Mike Shanahan for making you look much better than you actually were.

I think we need a handball forum to track his new Career.

I see him winning 75% of his handballs & losing in the Tourneys to true Champs.

There are plenty of Plummer Appreciation threads in Archives also.

I find it Appro that he & his Bro were successful enough to advance in the Tourney only to lose to the real Champs.

Maybe on the 4th of July we will see him lose to that Kobiasy guy at the Hot Dog eating contest in Coney Island?

Anyone who doesn't think that Jake Plummer has made a major contribution to the success of this organization is nothing short of a drooling, brainless fool. Not a surprise in your case, given the inanity of most of your clueless posts.

Yeah, shame on you for not packing up and moving cross country and continuing to play football even though your heart isn't in it anymore so spdirty could feel good about getting a 4th that odds are will be out of the league in 3 years. What a selfish bastard

You're one to talk.....notice this is probably the first and only time I've ever responded to YOURS? It's cause you're not worth a toss.

Ragging it today, I see? The post was a joke.....I guess that your the brainless fool that was too thick to even see that......get over yourself already.

No, it's because anything more challenging than a fart joke is over your head.

You must have me confused with someone else.....I'm quite certain I could run circles around you intellectually.

Just an aside note......you must be a liberal, right? Typical (and predictable) move for you to resort to hostility and name-calling when someone doesn't agree with your viewpoint.....in this case, with regards to Jake.

Good day to you.
