Via NESN:

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, who played in the NFL for ten seasons before walking away from the game in 2007 at age 32, 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 Monday.

"I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ then I think I'll like him a little better."

Tebow has been highly public with his religious beliefs throughout his entire career, which appears to have rubbed Plummer the wrong way. However, "Jake the Snake" begrudgingly admits that Tebow does seem to have the skills to win in the NFL, regardless of his religious affiliation.

"I don't hate him because of that," Plummer admits, "I just would rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoff."

Plummer can't hate too hard on Tebow, though, admitting that, "He is a baller" and the Broncos record backs that up, as the Broncos are 4-1 with Tebow under center.
