Bozos of Blitz #13
I miss drawing John Elway. So I was glad to be able to use him for this episode of Bozos. That's one thing about doing Bozos. The strip gives me the chance to do things I can't in a single panel format. I tried to imagine what John would tell Jay. It was mostly stuff that drove me crazy about Plummer. The stuff that to me revealed a maturity level of about a 16 year old. I think that's what eventually cost Jake his job. His lack of study and comittment off the field was as evident as his the long list of mistakes he was compiling on the field. And don't even get me started about the way he presented himself at press conferences except to say the phrase "unprofessional" comes to mind.
Well, thankfully, that ship has sailed. I look forward to the Cutler era. I think he is going to be a great quarterback for the Broncos. Just give him some time and show him some grace. The kid'll take 'em places. And I think we might just see him hoist a few. Lombardi trophies that is.
