    Broncos | Plummer's days with team over
    Mon, 1 Jan 2007 08:41:10 -0800

    Mike Klis and Bill Williamson, of the Denver Post, report Denver Broncos QB Jake Plummer has told teammates and friends he will not return to the team next season and serve as a backup to QB Jay Cutler. Plummer will look to find a starting job with another NFL team.

    Houston, again.
    Isn't that a moving truck I just saw leave Denver going towards Houston?

    Uh? Why Detroit?
    Kitna threw for 4200 yards, 21 Td's and comp 62% of his passes in his first year of the offense. And he didn't even use the David Carr excuse of getting sacked 60+ times.

    The passing offense is the only thing that works in Detroit.

    Houston looks like the right fit to me. Offense he knows and a starting QB he should beat easily in camp.

    I have serious doubts that Jake Plummer will be an improvement over David Carr. The only way I could see this happen is if the Texans are resigned to a long term rebuilding program and will bring in Plummer as an interim quarterback while they draft and season the new quarterback.

    Has the Bills said anything about getting rid of Losman?? last I heard, they were satisfied at the QB position.....

    Same thing with Tampa Bay, Oakland, & Detroit.... we might not think highly of their QBs, but they all have problems, glaring problems much worse than their QBs....

    Tampa Bay couldn't get their run game going..... They've got Simms, who Gruden may not be in love with, but the kids made plays..... they've got GradKowski..... who Gruden is in love with, and has shown lots of promise..... then they have Rattay while not A-List, he's definitely worthy of a Roster spot.

    Detroit... while I'm sure they'd love to have a QB of the future on their roster, Jake Plummer doesn't help that situation, besides, there are probably no teams in the league in need of Defensive playmakers more than the Detroit Lions...

    Oakland.... QB won't change much there. They need to figure out who their coach is going to be....... who their receivers are going to be.... who their running back is going to be...... & who are going to start on their offensive line.

    KC............ they've already got enough old guys competing for the starter position.

    I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. Are we trying to start a caveman clan here?

    I would wait. Plummer might pull a Domanick Davis and change his name and number.

    Mark my words...

    Detroit will not take a WR with their first round pick. Millen would be tarred and feathered if he did that.

    They are a lock to draft a QB first. Brohm or Quinn will be their pick, or even Russell if his stock continues to rise.

    They will burn that city down (again) if the Lions draft another receiver in the first round.

    Yeah it was a joke, but it would be funny if the Raiders passed on Johnson leaving Millen in a tough position. Assuming he wasn't able to trade out of the spot he could be forced to pass on arguably the top talent in the draft because he's 1 for 3 picking WRs in the first round.
