Many people may not remember it, but Jake Plummer actually had some good years with the Denver Broncos toward the end of his career. Like many others before and after him, Plummer butted heads with Mike Shanahan and the relationship eventually had to end. Fortunately for us, he’s still willing to share his thoughts on what has been going on in Denver.
As Sports Radio Interviews pointed out, Plummer joined Xtra Sports 910 in Phoenix for what turned out to be an extremely entertaining interview. After he was done tooting his own horn and talking about how the Broncos missed out when they got rid of him, Jake was naturally asked for his thoughts on Tim Tebow. His response was priceless.
“Tebow, regardless of whether I wish he’d just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates, I think he’s a winner and I respect that about him,” Plummer said. “I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ then I think I’ll like him a little better. I don’t hate him because of that, I just would rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoff…like you know, I understand dude where you’re coming from….but he is a baller. He knows how to win and when your teammates believe in you that you can do good things and that’s what they are doing.”
Given Tebow’s history of having a great outlook on life and always saying the right things, you know he’s going to only focus on the fact that Plummer called him a “baller.” As for the Jesus stuff: Jake the Snake isn’t the first person to say Tebow is too in-your-face with his faith and religion. However, it’s that openness about his beliefs that has resulted in the whole world walking around Tebowing everywhere they go. Plus, the Broncos are winning. Why would he stop now?Google+
