    Will Plummer still be the place holder for Elam's kicks?

    If he is infact benched, will he still do his duty and make sure that the laces are all good for Elam?

      Yup, that's the only thing he seems to do right from what I have seen in 4 years. Well, that and the Bootleg.

        During pregame warmups at the last home game, both Jake and Jay were practicing holding the ball.

        So, it's anyone's guess, but Jay has been getting practice doing the task.

                I would assume that Jay's practice in that area is as much due to the fact that if Jake had gone down with an injury, presumably Jay would need to start and take over holding duties.

                Seems like a pretty silly question. Why wouldn't he still hold? When a defensive back or RB is also a kickoff or punt returner and then loses his starting DB or RB job, they don't automatically lose their special teams job.

                  Actually, it is VERY important. The reason that Jake is the holder is that previously, the punter was the holder. When we had turnover in punters and different people were holding, Elam's successful field goal percentage declined. In fact, it was a bad job by the holder that cost Elam his NFL best consecutive extra point made streak.

                  So, I know that taking shots at Jake is a popular sport, but I wouldn't be too quick to underestimate the value of the long snapper or holder in the field goal equation. The Broncos don't.

                    That's a good question. My guess would be yes. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

                      Jake still...

                      ...Gonna hold for FG's? I think he should, we can still play a fake and have Plummer throw in the endzone during close games... Didn't he do that during Pre-season?

                            Naw, he'd just throw a pick. Better to kick the FG.

                                This is one hell of a post. A better joke than...he couldn't throw it through the uprights. Or...don't run a fake, he'd just throw a pick.

                                I wish I could give you some CP but I'm out at the moment.
