It's no secret that Mike Shanahan likes Jay Cutler. But what if Cutler landed in Washington when he was traded from Denver?
If NFL executives really adore parity, they must be wincing at the early division clinchings by the Broncos, Patriots and Falcons.
Ah, that growing list of Broncos playmakers: Peyton Manning. Von Miller. Demaryius Thomas.
Art Briles panicked the first time he saw Robert Griffin III throw a football in person. It was that feeling you get when a secret you must keep is close to getting out.
The St. Louis Rams are open to offers for the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft — and the chance to abscond with Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor. Stand back, everybody. This could get crazy.
I don't follow professional football much anymore, having long ago become disenchanted and frustrated with the many overpaid, overglorified players of the game, but recently I've taken notice of one young man: Tim Tebow ("The Tebow effect," Comment & Analysis, Friday).
The Gospel and the gridiron are inextricably intertwined in Tim Tebow's world.
By now, everybody knows Tim Tebow, the quirky quarterback. Hardworking work in progress, imperfect passer getting by on more will than skill, bigger on moxie than mechanics.
For a team in the throes (or is it the overthrows?) of what the Washington Redskins are in the throes of, there is no bottom. Two losses become three. Three turn into four. And then you run the streak to five with a 20-9 loss on Sunday to the previously 1-7 Miami Dolphins.
The quarterback position figured to be the least of the Washington Redskins' worries when Mike Shanahan took over as coach 21 months ago. Shanahan, after all, is a connoisseur of quarterbacks. He's renowned for getting the most out of them — from John Elway to Steve Young to Jake Plummer to Jay Cutler. Heck, he played the position himself at Eastern Illinois.
Mike Shanahan handed down his long-awaited quarterback decision this week and, by the width of a chinstrap, Whatshisname (Rex Grossman) won out over That Other Fella (John Beck).
Ryan Mallett's replacement as Arkansas' starting quarterback will have no shortage of playmakers at his disposal.
"Of course I felt a little bitter toward Shanahan, but he was the coach trying to do the right thing," Plummer said in an interview on Denver radio station 104.3, The Fan. "I knew it was a bad decision, everyone else did."
Former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer said he likes Tebow but would like him a lot more if he would quit reminding everybody how much he loves Jesus Christ.
