Jake Plummer and Tim Tebow actually have a fair amount in common, if you think about it. Both played quarterback for the Denver Broncos, and both won games in ways that were not always described as "pretty." But Plummer seems to have run out of patience with Tebow's prayer routine and wishes that the Broncos' current QB would tone it down a bit. "Tebow, regardless of whether I wish he'd just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates, I think he's a winner and I respect that about him," Plummer told XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix on...

  • Wow Jake, I liked you before you became the judge of public opinion.
    In baseball you see countless times when a hitter hits a home run or a double they will point to the sky and people in baseball understand and respect that but I guess Mr. Plummer thinks football players should praise someone else.
  • Didnt realize the Plummer was still alive or at least thought himself to be relevant at all. But to "hate" someone because they show their faith? Class act from a washed up and out FORMER player.
  • I love Tim Tebow mainly because of this. Jake Plummer you are just sour and mad that he took your spot. Above all regardless of our talents, how big or small, we should give thanks for having them. Tebow is a Godly man in what is increasingly becoming a "Godless Nation". It facinates me that he continues to keep Jesus above his fame and fortune.
  • If Plummer understood Tebow is only doing what his faith dictates. We were created to worship. With out Christ nothing is possible. I applaud him for his actions and not his words. To raise your thanks and to give credit to our Creator is wonderful. If you only talk the talk and don't walk the walk...What will your excuse be when you stand before Jesus...Our Holy Father created us to worship...Jesus died on the cross for our sins...So we owe HIM much gratitude...we will never know what it cost to die for our sins, because Jesus took that burden from us...Tebow shows he is a man of God not a follower of religion...he is faithful not religious...
  • leave Tebow alone Jake (Jurk) its his right to give thanks to God maybe if you did a little you might been a better player and person All the ones that knocks Tebow kiss off the boy is going after his dream is that so bad Tebow plays for the love of the game not the money like the other 95% of the over paid players
