The BCS Mess
I'm wondering which will come first. The NCAA replacing the BCS with a much needed Playoff system or Mike Shanahan benching Jake Plummer for a much better Jay Cutler. These days I'm beginning to wonder if we'll see the Playoff system first.
If you ask me, I think the way Mike Shanahan has handled the situation with Jake has been almost inhumane. He hangs the guy out to dry, for what, half the season, turns the sidelines into a forum to verbally abuse Plummer in front of the whole world everytime the guy comes off the field and, then, in in act of complete cowardice, steps off the podium in front of the press before anyone can ask the obvious question about the quarterback controversy leaving his team and the entire Denver community hanging for the forseeable future.. The one thing I can say about Jake is, he never quit on his team the way that Mike Shanahan has done this season. It's been horrendous and grossly unfair to the entire team.
Let me know what you think. I'm interested if anyone feels the same way.
