Jake Plummer wishes Tim Tebow would cut down on the religion talk


Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow is a Christian, as he rarely misses an opportunity to say. Former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer says he’s heard it enough from Tebow that he doesn’t need to hear it any more.

In an interview with 910-AM in Phoenix, Plummer said that he thinks highly of the way Tebow is winning games in Denver, but he wishes Tebow would cool it on turning post-game interviews into an opportunity to proselytize.

I wish he’d just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates,” Plummer said, via “I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ then I think I’ll like him a little better. I don’t hate him because of that, I just would rather not have to hear that every time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoff.”

Plummer had positive things to say about his time in Denver (though not his coach in Denver, Mike Shanahan), and he said he’s glad the Broncos have a quarterback who has led them to four wins in five games.

“They are going to try to win with what he can do and it is kind of fun to see since they are bucking the system in the NFL,” Plummer said.

So Plummer is a fan of the way Tebow plays the game. But he’s not a fan of the way Tebow preaches after he plays the game.
