Plummer to Tebow: Curb the references to Jesus
Pining for your daily Tim Tebow fix after a four-day hiatus? Former Broncos QB Jake Plummer has delivered the latest sound byte to chew on in regards to his polarizing Rocky Mountain successor.
“I’m telling you I came in at the wrong time down there,” Plummer, who was pretty mobile himself while winning 39 of 54 starts in Denver, told XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix on Monday. “(Tebow) is a winner, though. I like that because I think the town and the fans and everybody there — they are craving a winner. They lost one when I was run out of town.
“They have a belief in the kid. That’s really special because they make such a big deal about intangibles and height and arm strength and leaping ability and bench press and 40-time and all this crap that really means nothing when it is crunch time.”
Then Plummer decided to weigh in on Tebow’s faith … which is doubtless where most of you will weigh in.
“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,” said Plummer. “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. They are winning. That’s fun to see.”
And how long can Tebow keep producing victories — he’s 4-1 since taking over as the starter this season — out of the Broncos’ newly installed option offense, Jake?
“I don’t know, man. That’s why you wont see me on ESPN prognosticating or trying to analyze what they do,” he said.
“They are going to do it until it gets stopped and probably are going to keep doing it until Tebow can take a drop and hit an out route or a comeback. And until he can do that, then why would they change? … He’s willing to learn. You can hear it in his words. I think he’ll end up becoming the thrower we expected him to be immediately. Right now he is winning and that’s all that matters, man.”
