What the heck was Broncos coach Mike Shanahan thinking when he lied about the injury to quarterback Jake Plummer? (Shanahan originally said Plummer had suffered a mild concussion, when the Denver QB had actually sustained a separated shoulder.)
A. "He'd already thrown three touchdowns. It's Jake Plummer, people. Wouldn't you assume there was something wrong with his head?"
B. "As long as I'm at it, I should also say I have absolutely no regrets about signing him to that big contract."
C. "The way he played in Week 1, 'concussion' seemed a lot more believable."
D. "I saw how much guff Mike Martz took when it was revealed one of his quarterbacks had a concussion."
E. "Opponents might've gone after his shoulder, but they know there's nothing to hurt up there in his head."
F. "Hey, I used to work for Al Davis."
