    If you don't like Jake or Q fine with me. Your the one that has to live with them being on the Broncos team not me.

    If you are reading anything else into that post you are wrong. If that is all you have, we will have to agree to disagree.
    I don't think too many others read anything else into that post, jr, than what you intended.
    Tx has a prob with Jake that only he can get over........nobody here can cure him, I'm sure.....

    I don't think I'll have to change my mind on him anytime soon.
    I'd like a 2-1 also better would be 3-1 but that is unlikely as not many do that.


    As far as the SB MVP I meant that as sarcasm.

    While Jake may not be brady or Manning his only real flaw that I can see is a few extra picks if he gets that undercontrol he becomes a pretty damned good QB. That fits our system better than most others.

    Putz was not a rookie.

    Luke was never above #4. Again, not a starter.

    Nice try.

    Just to reiterate my earlier post which you seemd to gloss over.

    I guess if you want to have the strictest interpetation you are partially correct.

    But saying PUTZ was not for all intents and purposes a rookie. After all he did have a whooping 7 catches the year before. I guess that means he is a seasoned veteran.

    Watts actually STARTED TWO games last year, he played in every game and had at least one reception in all but the 1st INDY game. He played alot and even though he is disabled, he has shown class, but yet had a few (6 I think) key drops one for a game winning TD at a critical time.

    Just wanted to set the record straight.

    BTW while Lepsis did play RT before changing sides to LT reallly does make him a rookie at that position. As every thing is ass backwards. Not to mention he gets the RDE the fast and quick guy opposed to the big bad LDE.

    Listening to the way he's talking, he's got a chip on his shoulder the size of the rockies.....

    I just hope he proves he's worth the 4th round pick....anything more, and really good things can happen.

    Agreed!
    TC is the time to get all of the wrinkles worked out, and get that sharpness rehoned.
    Quite frankly, none of the qb's have exactly shined thus far.
    But by the end of TC, hopefully they will get those bad throws/reads out of their heads and be primed for a successful season.

    You're referring to Elway? Griese?

    I wouldn't mind having either back under center right now, actually.

    sbutk: i can see why Denver is taking TO's right now [trailing by 7, with 30 seconds left in the half]. but why Oakland???

    Captain Lori: You are trying to figure out the Raiders. Try figuring out women instead; it's probably much easier.

    ... i hardly think watts can be considered "disabled". cmon. he had the hand injury when he was breaking school records (previosly held by moss i believe) in college. if anything his hand should be less of a factor now.

    lets make like watts in the endzone and drop this "disabled" bs (sorry couldnt resist).

    While he competed at the college level very well indeed, he is now at another level all together. One wonders how many DBs knew about his disability in college and defensed him the way every DB will in the future.

    If one does not hand complete control over an hand or other limb he is indeed diabled. Now that been said he has beat long odds to say the least and has learned to overcome his problem. Or maybe I should have said adapt to his lack of feeling in the hand.

    Will he be able to be a record setting NFL WR I sure as hell hope so. I like the kid and if the NFL DB's don't take the other hand away from him in the future it could be very bright indeed.

    Now, i did read every post made in this topic, but i read most. There was a argument about how Plummer has a terrible touchdown to interception ratio. Well, if we compare that to John Elway, who did not have a break out season till 1993. Now then, in Jakes nine year carrer, mostly playing with a terrible terrible team. He has 132 TDs and 141 Ints. Now you cant have an excuse for all those, but still. Yes that is a bad ration. Then lets look at John Elway, he had 300 tds to his 226 ints. That ratio only improve after 93. Now he was drafted in 83, so that made him a 10 year vet. See where im coming from? Jake played some what similar to John, but John had a better team. I could sit here and break down how john didnt look well stat wise early in his carrer, but he still won games. Jake has been winning games. Isnt that what its about?

    And sorry if there are some misspelled words, its early and im kind of tired.
