  • Am I the only one...

    Am I the only one who thought that Jake's left-handed pass (while extremely stupid) was also a stunning display of athletic ability? He was getting knocked down while he changed hands and got off a spiral with some decent velocity. I've tried throwing a football left-handed before, and it's extremely difficult. I still can't believe he pulled that off.

      Athletic, yes. Smart, NO. But thats what makes him so dangerous. He thinks he can do anything. He has confidence that can not be shaken and thats why he does so well in high pressure situations. Lots of 4th quater come backs and big plays.

        It was stupid and we were lucky that didn't cost us the game. Now I am a huge Jake supporter but that made me shake my head.

          The throw was cool, but it was a stupid decision. He's thrown some bonehead picks in his first game last year too. I guess he has to get it out of his system the first week

            It wasn't all that bad I'm guessing he was thinking about avoiding the safety am I the only one who seen how close they were to the endzone, but yeah I was like holy crap he actually thew it decent as he was getting tackled and switching hands when the average person throws lefty it looks like a girl pass also wasn't all his fault where the hell was the O-Line on that one? there were quite a few plays where Jake's quick thinking and fast feet got him out of trouble from guys all in his face.

              I think Plummer is awesome. I'll stick behind him 100%. However, last night during that play, I had to yell at him (through the TV of course). That was a very stupid play. However, I think he thought he could get it to Putzier, which coinsidentally I think he tried the first time he threw an interception.

              However I'm impressed he threw it so well left-handed as well. He actually got it to the Chief defender hahaha, instead of this wild duck that was out of control.

              Of course, I don't see the difficulty, I can throw a football rather easily left-handed, perfect spirals and very far...at least 40 yards, I think...

              We shouldn't worry because he made up for it the rest of the game...

                  Guy starts a thread saying the pass was stupid but really athletic, and everyone chimes in "It was stupid!"

                  We know it was stupid! It's ok to not mention it every chance you get :p

                  Jake is a very good athlete and I agree, it was a nice display of that ability. I can't throw that well with my right hand!

                  Last year's week 1 was his worst game of the season. Let's hope this was his worst game of 2004. Not bad passer rating (80'ish) for your worst game of the year

                      It probably wouldn't have been stupid if he would have completed the pass. He would have been a hero. The announcers would have been like " Did you see that, Jake Plummer is amazing" It's kinda like going on 4th down, if you make it your smart, if you don't your stupid. Jake is still an amazing quarterback, regardless with what he does wit the ball.

                      We still got the W, and that is all that counts.

                        Yeah, but he has to throw it into the ground like a spike, not try to make something happen and throw it to a reciever.

                          That was a stupid play, but he kinda reminds me of a young favre with that stuff, i like a 'fired up win anyway you can guy', but sometimes those plays dont work, and i think jake saw that...lol, at least he has a strong mind and will, and didnt let that stupid play screw his mind up for the rest of the night. To me Jake is a scrapper, he will fight you till the end, shanny will get him in line, just like mike holgram did with favre, shanny will chew his azz on the sidelines when it needs to be done and jake is tough enough to take it.

                            I don't know about this.... What else could he have done? He was in the endzone and if he would have taken the sack, the Chiefs get 2 pts and the ball (a possible 9 points). If he intentionately grounds it, the same thing. I think if I was in the same situation, I'd have done the same thing. And yes, although it didn't work out, that was one hell of a left handed pass. A beautiful spiral. Still it worked out. Go BRONCOS!!
