Default Plummer to coach quarterbacks

Plummer to coach quarterbacks
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4078255

SANDPOINT, Idaho -- Former NFL quarterback Jake Plummer will be the quarterbacks coach at Sandpoint High School this season, coach Mike Mitchell said.

Plummer, who lives in the resort town, will be paid as a normal assistant coach, Mitchell said.

"It will not be as much as NFL pay," Mitchell said.

A native of Boise, Idaho, Plummer played at Arizona State and for the Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos before retiring in 2006. He threw for more than 29,000 yards with 161 touchdowns and 161 interceptions in his decade-long pro career.

Plummer retired to Sandpoint, an outdoor mecca in the Rocky Mountains along the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. His brother, Eric, also lives in the town.

"He wants to help out as much as he can and help the kids of the community," Mitchell said. "He's a great guy."

Wow, can you imagine what it would be like if you were a high school QB and Jake Plummer was you coach?

True enough and pre Cutler I liked his play OK too except for the AFCC game.

Your right, great guy but I wish he just didn't make those "bonehead" plays he was famous for. (drive killers)

Thats awesome! Jake is a stud, and to get coached by an NFL QB would be a great experience.

For the record, while goofy... that pass was thrown in a game we won.

Denver scored on its first three possessions, Plummer threw for 230 yards and threw 2 touchdown passes

Denver took the lead back on Elam's 45-yard field goal, then sealed it on Plummer's 2-yard touchdown pass to Patrick Hape.


It's hard for me to think of a less significant play in NFL history that had more meaningless hype around it.

Silly throws? Good lord, these folks must have never watched the great John Elway play. Very different QBs, of course... but John would make throws that left you scratching your head at least once a week.

Its not insignificant at all. Throwing with your opposite hand isnt something that comes natural and for someone do such a thing in such a spastic fit, just goes to show how he was injudicious in a way thats on a totally different level.

Again, if you watched Elway play every Sunday (and I'm guessing you didn't) ... you simply wouldn't make statements like that.

It was an attempt to avoid a safety. Silly? Sure. Significant? Of course not. More significant were the results... a few TD passes, including the game-sealing TD drive.... and a win.

The obsession over that throw, as NFL-follies as it may have been, is a real exercise in futility.

I feel sorry for the head coach. How do you try to tell Jake Plummer that you know more about football than he does?

Also, say what you will about Plummer the QB, but as a person, he's just on his game. He kicks ass.

Jake seems like a guy who has never let the stardom of being an NFL player, and a starting QB at that, get in the way of helping out the community--from walking dogs from the pound while in Denver and now this..he seems like a good guy for sure. I'd feel much better with him than with Simms or Orton that's for sure......

That's the same thing that I thought. Those kids will probably love it. They won't have a coach who will make them practice the same thing over and over, or push them to give it their all. But on the flip side, they probably won't amount to much because they won't have a coach pushing them to be great.

My high school football/track coach yelled at me everyday for three years. Hell, I'd win races and he'd have some words for me. At the time I didn't understand why he was so pissed. I didn't like it, but looking back, I appreciate it because it helped get me to college. The guy pushed me to be great. I see him often and we joke about those days. Judging from Plummer's comments on Jim Rome's show, he's not going to be doing any of that. They'll probably be playing a lot of handball.

Do you honestly think that coaching children is on the same plain as coaching grown men who make millions of dollars? Children are more eager to please their coaches than adults are and most are prone to defer to adult authority figures. I bet that Jake was coached up just as you were while growing up--Would you appreciate your boss yelling at you while you were in your 30's? And what Jake stated made sense--why go over 130 plays once or twice when you can perfect the 60 or 70 that you will actually run in the game that are tailored to a particular opponent? Jake is doing great things and the kids will be better for his coaching........

Again, until you can come up with an instance where Elway threw a left handed interception, youd have a point. But, as it is, you dont.
