Roster cuts loom - Rocky Mountain News - Lynn DeBruin,
Mario Fatafehi grabbed a reporter's microphone and launched into a perfect Tom Jones impersonation - albeit without the tight pants and swiveling hips. "The old hometown looks the same as I step down from the train, and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa." He sounded like he was auditioning for Star Search, not the Denver Broncos. Yet with roster cuts approaching, the reserve defensive tackle/karaoke stud wasn't sweating it.

August 23, 2003 - A rap star plays for the Denver Broncos. He just doesn't particularly look the part. Offensive guard Steve Herndon doesn't rhyme or freestyle. His enormous neck lacks the signature bejeweled chain that could double as a boat anchor. And in terms of fashion, he's more Levi's than Pelle Pelle.

August 23, 2003 - When Jake Plummer takes the field Monday night, he'll be entering relatively foreign territory. Not just Invesco Field at Mile High, where he has played once in six NFL seasons and where he'll make his home debut as the Denver Broncos quarterback. But prime time.

August 23, 2003 - Montae Reagor was asked recently by the Indianapolis Star about his lack of playing time with the Broncos. "Well, I was behind Trevor Pryce in Denver for four years," explained Reagor, who signed a six-year, $17.25 million deal with the Colts this offseason.

August 23, 2003 - Monday Night Football is as popular in the Phoenix area as anywhere else. The problem is the Cardinals are always tuning in from their couches. "Just one game in six years with Arizona," quarterback Jake Plummer recalled of his MNF experience. "The San Francisco game when Steve Young took that hit from Aeneas (Williams). So that was the one Monday night game we had. I'm excited about it. The whole nation is watching. So it's time to go out there and perform and make plays."

Aug. 9, 2003 - Probably hundreds of thousands of NFL fans have been at more Monday Night Football games in person during the past six years than Jake Plummer. The Arizona Cardinals' struggles over the past few decades -- dating back to their 28 seasons in St. Louis -- have kept them from being more than occasional visitors to the Monday night stage. Since Plummer joined the league in 1997, the Broncos have graced the prime-time stage on 15 occasions in that span. The Cardinals? Just one.
