A Downward spiral
I think even the staunch Jake Plummer supporters have seen the light. The offense has been dumbed down to such a level of simplicity it can no longer function. Plummer cannot be trusted by his head coach and his teammates to handle even the basic task of taking a snap from center under pressure when it matters most.
The Cutler era, in effect, began Sunday night. All that awaits now is for the timing to be right to put him on center stage and give him the spotlight. Jake Plummer, for all intents and purposes, has seen his career with the Broncos come to an end. It's only a matter of time for the final exit.
