I’ve always loved Jake.
With that love also comes understanding.
I understand that sending the bird towards the mile high sky was uncalled for. I understand the grudge he still holds from being benched for Cutler. I understand his lack of enthusiasm to compete with the gaggle of quarterbacks on the Tampa Bay roster. I understand his leaving the broken bones/bruises of the NFL to play handball professionally with his brother and father. I understand his easy transition to Sandpoint High School quarterbacks coach.
I understand that Denver fans have a love/hate/really really hate relationship with the Snake.
Say what you will, Jake Plummer is definitely his own man. I could list all of Plummer’s achievements on and off the field. I could list all of his shortcomings. Why? Why drudge up all of those useless details when the man left us a shinning piece of gold in Broncos history?
The Mustache roster photo.
Now (in)famous, this gem of a portrait will never cease to bring a smile to my face. A guy who never took his self too seriously, Jake was kind enough to give us the gift that just kept on giving, exploding onto the screen over and over and over again. Mustache!
In honor of Jake and his extremely self-aware/perverse/clever bio shot, I’ve decided to go through the brand new roster photos and dish out a couple awards for a coupla stills that the Snake might be proud of. Drum roll please. Let’s have some fun.
Click the names to see the pics
Ben Hamilton–The Plummer Award
Dear lord, maybe Ben Hamilton can get some snaps at QB this season? Heck, even fullback, anything to get this picture some more air time.
Andre Goodman– The Who Farted? Award
Maybe the photographer? Maybe Andre.
Ryan Harris– I Mean Business Award
HA HA HA…no? Sorry. Sorry.
Nick Griesen– Ugh, This Guy Is Taking My Sister Out Tonight Award
He picks her up at 10:00 on his crotch rocket, his collar is popped, his breath smells like wine coolers.
Chad Jackson– Manny & I Have The Same Dread Guy Award/Predator Award
Although you can say it’s making fun, I think CJ looks really cool.
Matt McChesney–I Saw That Guy @ The Bar Last Night Award
After the forth shot of Jose Cuevro.
Me: How many times you going to play that song?
Matt: I’m on a boat!
Me: Cut him off.
Clint Oldenburg–Ugh, This Guy Actually Is Taking My Sister Out Tonight Award
He picks her up at 8:30, his breath smells like wine coolers.
Seth Olsen– Jay Cutler chin & Dumb & Dumber Haircut Award
I checked, #6 is still available.
Blake Schlueter– We’re All Visiting the Underworld & This Guy Is Taking Us Award
Literally as I was writing this, his photo was changed to this one. The previous was a TCU pic with fog billowing out from behind him (dry ice baby). Somehow this picture still works for the award.
Nate Swift– Just Happy To Be Here Award
Every rookie must have been rushed to the photo room directly from the practice field. Check out the helmet marks.

Recently Jake was quoted as saying
” When people ask me what I’m doing these days, I tell them ‘whatever the he** I want’.”
Me too Jake, me too.
