Makes sense, you may not want to have a car that fraws attention to youtrself as a celebrity. However, getting out and kicking someone's car is known to draw attention to oneself so...

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer insists he's not a hothead and denies backing into another motorist's vehicle in a road rage incident last month.

Plummer addressed his alleged road-rage incident during a Broncos minicamp.
Plummer said Wednesday the other driver bumped his tailgate at a red light in south suburban Denver after the Bronco had been zipping through traffic on his way to deliver a check to charity on April 20.

He acknowledged cutting off the other motorist while talking on his cell phone.

"I waved in my rearview mirror and even said sorry. And all I heard was incessant honking. When I pulled up to the light, I felt a bump on the back of my tailgate, which was very surprising," Plummer said.

He said he got out of his 2005 Honda Element to check for damage. Finding none, he got back into his truck, drove away when the light changed and called 911 to report the incident.

"It wasn't like he smashed into me. It was more like a tap to say, 'Hey, you cut me off.' So I let 911 know and I took off and had to get to my function," Plummer said.

Police told him they have no record of his call but Plummer said he'll show investigators his cell phone records to prove it.

Plummer was issued a summons for a misdemeanor city violation of "injure or destroy property," similar to criminal mischief under state law. The summons orders Plummer to appear at Englewood's Violations Bureau between June 2 and June 15.

The pickup driver, Douglas Stone, 47, of Denver, said he didn't realize the other driver was Plummer.

"I thought it was some 19- or 20-year-old kid driving a car that his dad gave him, and maybe he needed to be talked to by his dad,"
ROFL
Stone told The Associated Press in a phone interview, describing the driver as clean-shaven with hair past his ears. "It's not the Jake Plummer you see on TV, after he's taken a shower and has that shaggy beard.

"He was kind of a small, skinny guy. By the way he looks, he's not built like a football player," the 6-foot-3, 260-pound Stone said.

Plummer, Denver's quarterback for three seasons, has received unwelcome attention before. In 2004, he flashed an obscene gesture to a heckler in the home crowd. When a newspaper columnist identified his girlfriend last year, he called the columnist and criticized Broncos fans. He later apologized and said he likes being Denver's quarterback.

Plummer said this latest incident shouldn't affect his reputation.

"When football season comes, I don't think anybody's going to be saying, 'Oh yeah! I remember that road rage thing.' They're not going to care," he said.

"It's a matter of how we play ball and go on, and image tarnished, whatever, role model, blah blah blah, I'm here to play football and win games and whatever happens, that's what I've got to deal with," he said.

Learning to control his temper is not an issue, either, Plummer suggested.

"I'm not concerned one bit with that. I'm very calm," he said. "There's no anger management problems with me, no."

In this latest incident, "I wasn't angry one bit until he bumped me in the back of my car," Plummer said.

According to a police report, witnesses said a man later identified as Plummer got out of the Honda at the stoplight and said something to Stone. The comments aren't in the report. Plummer denied saying anything to Stone.

The other driver then returned to the Honda, backed into the pickup and left when the light changed, the report said, quoting witnesses.

One witness wrote down the Honda license plate, which police traced to Plummer.

Police investigator John Hoehler said the officer in charge of the case did not contact Plummer until last week because he was busy with other matters.

Plummer said he was surprised when he was contacted by police on Friday because "it was a month after everything had transpired."

The police report said Plummer's car had $200 to $300 in damage and Stone's pickup had about $25 damage to its front license plate holder.

On Wednesday, Plummer said he didn't notice any damage at the scene because the trucks were pressed against each other bumper to bumper.

Asked if he backed up into the other truck, Plummer said, "From the story I just told you, I think that would be impossible for that to happen."

Just a shame for Jake that 90.2 is his second-best ever, while 90.1 is one of the most pedestrian ratings in Green's career.

Plummer has never so much as SNIFFED a 100 (the benchmark for "elite" according to people that actually care about rating) QB rating.

Enh, stats can go either way.

51 less passes over 16 games for Plummer... equals 3.1 fewer passes per game. Wow. Hell of a leash and KC was playing catch up more often than Denver, ie ... passing more.

While Plummer had those fewer passes and fewer yards, check this out:

Plummer - 18 TDs / 7 INTs
Green - 17 TDs / 10 INTs

Carry on.

Yes, but everyone knows who get the ball in the redzone in KC, so most of our TD's come from outside that range :D

QB ratings are nice as an objective, mathematical tool for evaluating those variables which can be measured.

At the end of the day IMHO the true barometer of a QB is number of wins, division titles, playoff wins, and SB rings.
