Conventional Wisdom says that Jake Plummer’s great failing was not being John Elway. I’m sure that there is a lot of truth to that. But Jake didn’t make his life any easier with 3 playoff blowouts:
2003: Colts 41 - Broncos 10
2004: Colts 49 - Broncos 24
2005: Steelers 34 - Broncos 17
The writing was on the wall after the Mastermind gave the reins to rookie Jay Cutler for the last five games of last season. So long Jake and good luck with your next team.
