    Jake Plummer NFL career

    Drafted in the second round of the 1997 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals, Plummer started that season as the third-string QB behind Kent Graham and Stoney Case, but made his first appearance of the season on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles. He entered the game with 10:26 left and promptly led the Cardinals 14 play, 98 yard touchdown drive to tie the game. That season, he set rookie records for the Cardinals in passing (157 of 296 for 2,203 yards) with 15 touchdown passes and 15 interceptions. In only his fourth NFL start, he set an NFL rookie record with 388 passing yards against the New York Giants, breaking Troy Aikman's mark of 379 established against the Cardinals in 1989. Plummer finished 3-6 as a starter and the Cardinals finished last in the NFC East.

    The year 1998 was an up and down season for Plummer. He threw for 3,737 yards and 17 touchdowns but was intercepted 20 times. The Cardinals were 6-7 before winning their final 3 games by a total of 8 points, all in dramatic fashion, to clinch the franchise's first playoff birth since 1982. He then led the Cardinals to their first playoff victory since 1947, 20-6 at Texas Stadium against the Dallas Cowboys. Plummer's ability to lead the team to victory in these close games certainly gave credence to the "Snake" nickname. Also named as a Pro Bowl Alternate.

    The year 1999 was an injury-plagued season for Plummer. He suffered a sprained thumb in the second preseason game, broke his finger midway through the season and had nagging hip and groin problems as well. These injuries were partly the reason why he had a bad year; 2,111 passing yards, nine touchdown passes and 24 interceptions for a 50.8 passer rating. He finished 4-8 as a starter and the Cardinals went 6-10 to finish 4th in the NFC East and out of the playoffs.

    In 2000, Plummer continued his passing woes from the 1999 season, having slightly better numbers (2,946 yards, 21 interceptions, 66.0 quarterback rating), and reached 10,000 career passing yards in only his 47th career start. In 14 starts he compiled a 3-11 record and the Cardinals finished 3-13 and in last place in the NFC East.

    The year 2001 just happened to be Plummer's best season in the NFL at that point in his career. He was one of two quarterbacks to take every snap for his team (Kerry Collins was the other), and he passed for 3,653 yards, 18 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He had a stretch of 142 consecutive pass attempts without throwing an interception until January 6, 2002, when he threw an interception to rookie Redskin linebacker Antonio Pierce. He led the NFL in fourth-quarter passing yards in 2001 (1,227) and led the Cardinals to a 7-9 record and a 4th place in the NFC East.

    Plummer's last season with the Cardinals was in 2002. Again, his passing marks were rather mediocre (53.6 passer rating, 2,972 yards, 18 touchdowns and 20 interceptions), but he passed the 15,000 yard passing yards mark for his career against the San Diego Chargers on September 22.

    Plummer signed as a free agent with the Denver Broncos in 2003, replacing Brian Griese as the starting quarterback. With the guidance of the Broncos's head coach Mike Shanahan, he had his best season as an NFL quarterback to that point. Controversially, in the first game of the season he pretended to have a concussion to mask a shoulder injury. He finished the season with a career high 91.2 rating. He had the longest run by a Broncos QB on Monday Night Football, 40 yards against the Oakland Raiders. He led them to a wild card playoff berth where they were beaten by the Indianapolis Colts 41-10 at the RCA Dome.

    2004 was a roller coaster ride for Plummer. Along with matching or surpassing some of former Broncos QB John Elway's passing records (including the most passing yards and tying for the most touchdown passes in the season), he also threw for 20 interceptions, and was seen giving an obscene gesture to the fans in one game. He led the Broncos to a second straight wild card playoff berth at Indianapolis against the Colts where they again soundly beaten, 49-24.

    2005: No Mistake Jake

    In his third year playing for Denver, he threw 227 pass attempts without an interception, causing some to christen him Jake No Mistake, or No Mistake Jake rhyming with his older more well known nickname Jake the Snake. The Broncos relied on the running of Mike Anderson and Tatum Bell, which decreased the number of difficult throws Plummer was required to make. Furthermore, even when the running game stalled, he was still able to pass the football efficiently and without costly errors, finishing the season with 18 touchdowns and only 7 interceptions. He was selected as the second alternate for the 2006 Pro Bowl and was placed on the Pro Bowl roster after injuries to quarterback Carson Palmer and first alternate Drew Brees. However, Plummer had an injury to tend to, causing him to miss his first Pro Bowl appearance. He was replaced by Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair.

    The Broncos played excellent football in 2005, capturing the AFC West Title with a 13-3 record and earning the second overall seed in their conference. In an important milestone, the Broncos achieved their first playoff victory since the retirement of John Elway, defeating the defending champion New England Patriots 27-13 at Invesco Field at Mile High. Despite these accomplishments, some critics and media predicted that Plummer's transformation was a fa├žade and that he would inevitably revert to his old ways. The Broncos were defeated 34-17 by the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game on January 22, 2006, a game in which Plummer threw two interceptions and fumbled twice, losing both to the Pittsburgh defense.

    2006: Replacement

    On November 27, 2006, after a lackluster performance throughout the regular season, and directly following back to back losses to the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs, Broncos Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced that Plummer would be replaced as starting quarterback by rookie Jay Cutler. The decision has been met with mixed reactions by sports analysts and fans alike and has been the catalyst for much speculation regarding Plummer's future with the Denver Broncos.
