Arizona State and Cardinals legend Jake Plummer thinks it may be time for Josh Rosen to see his first NFL action. Jake "the Snake" tells Jody Oehler on The Drive
"If he's (Sam Bradford) not getting it done, you've got a kid (Josh Rosen) on the bench. Let's see if he can get it done"
Plummer says Bradford is "capable" of leading an NFL offense and there is no script for when the right time is for a rookie signal-caller but the move could jumpstart a sputtering offense.
"Sometimes a young kid like that with a hunger to play in the NFL can ignite a passing game."
Plummer admits he wasn't ready to play when he was thrown to the fire his rookie season in 1997.
"When I got my chance to play, I wasn't ready. I was green. I was just learning the game. But we needed a spark"
He led the Cardinals to a 3-and-6 record in 10 games, nine starts. The then 23-year-old tossed for over 22-hundred yards with 15 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
Current Cardinals quarterback Sam Bradford has thrown for 243 yards and two interceptions for an offense that has scored a lone touchdown through two games this season. Bradford is averaging four yards per pass attempt, while 10th overall pick Josh Rosen has been confined to the bench.
Plummer says Arizona State "got blown off the ball" by San Diego State and suffered a disheartening loss, but believes the Sun Devils will be up for their upcoming contest on the road at #10 Washington
"Everyone gets up when you're playing a top 10 team"
