And so it begins. Cutler get his turn and Plummer takes his place in holding the clipboard. It's going to be an interesting end to the season.
For me, it's going to be a bit like losing Richard Nixon. Plummer had become an easy target especially this season with Cutler breathing down his neck. I'll miss Jake. But I'm sure I'll manage a few more cartoons about him before he rides off into the sunset.
Cutler's task will not be an easy one. There are plenty of problems on offense that go far beyond the Quarterback position. That said, I think the Broncos will be better off in making this move. Maybe not this season because I don't think they have what it takes to be a Super Bowl contender in their present state. Give them an off season of draft picks and free agents (running back, defensive end, wide receiver) and a half of a season under Cutler's belt and they will be primed to make a real run in 2007. I'm not sure even Elway could salvage the rest of this season. But who knows, Jay might surprise us.
