JIM PLUNKETT RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mark Sanchez: The Jim Plunkett of the 21st Century?

I think when we heard about Nick Foles' injury last Sunday every NFL fan had the same thought: well there goes the Eagles' season. Not because the team isn't playoff worthy, but because it meant Mark Sanchez would be the starter for the forseeable future. In mop up duty, Sanchez had a up and down game, some good plays as well as the type of mind-numbing interception that plagued...

Raiders Proud to See Ray Guy Inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame

There is a laundry list of Raider greats that belong in the Hall of Fame.

This weekend, the list will be shortened by one as a long-time injustice is corrected. Punter Ray Guy will become the next Raider great to be inducted...

Ten No. 1 overall NFL Draft picks you may have never heard of

He’s the marquee of all marquee names, a player who, with very few exceptions, is selected by a downtrodden team and a fan base in much the same condition. This young prospect is often looked upon as a savior who could possibly lift the fortunes of his team and the spirits of its fans. I’m talking about the number one overall selection of the annual NFL Draft. But while the track...

Jim Plunkett, former New England #1 draft pick, was no Tom Brady

Throughout the history of the New England Patriots organization, they’ve had their share of draft successes at the quarterback position (maybe heard of Tom Brady?), but they’ve also had some failures. Not to be too confused here, the Patriots haven’t fallen victim quite to the levels of Ryan Leaf, Akili Smith & Tim Couch, but not all college stars have walked into Foxboro...

Why Raiders QB Jim Plunkett is not a Hall of Famer

It seems that some of Raider Nation disagrees with some of the content in my last article, Top 5 Raiders that should be in the NFL Hall of Fame. Apparently I left off a very important person in Raider history, former Raiders quarterback, Jim Plunkett. So why did I leave Plunkett off of my list? Why not at least give him honorable mention? It was for the same reason that he hasn...
