Right now the Broncos are down 10-3 to the Chiefs. Jake Plummer has thrown 21 passes for 110 yards and has been picked off. I can't say I'm surprised. This team was, at 7-2 last week, the pulpiest of paper tigers. The defense is good, though not nearly as great as suggested by allowing just 44 points in the first six games, and porous in allowing 34 points to the Colts and 35 to the Chargers last week. The running game, of course, is good and has been good ever since I became a fan in Terrell Davis' rookie season of 1995. The quarterback, however, can't throw the ball. Worse, instead of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, Plummer seems intent on pre-emptively carpet-bombing victory and forcibly installing defeat into power.
