It's easy to forget now, but for a while there last year, Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer was having a pretty cool year. The Broncos had the best record in football, some were touting him as an MVP candidate and some even thought he could lead the team to the Super Bowl. And then the blowout and four turnovers against the Steelers happened, and it's been angst and lament ever since. Oh, and the Broncos just drafted a quarterback in the first round too.
And now not only is Plummer being ticketed for a road rage incident, he's actually being openly mocked by the "victim."
"I know he's under a lot of pressure, and he just has a lot of competition now," said victim Doug Stone, referring to first-round draft pick Jay Cutler, the Vanderbilt quarterback selected two days after the alleged incident. "I thought the guy was about 19 or 20 years old, and he lived with his parents."
According to reports, Plummer, after cutting a guy off and being honked at, shoved his car in reverse and rammed Stone's car. Funny thing, too: Plummer had totally meant to hit another, entirely different, wide-open car.
