QB Bradlee Van Pelt - Free Agent
|6-2, 223||Born: 7-3-1980||College: Colorado State||Drafted: Round 7, pick|
2005 Week 13 vs KC (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / 7 / 1 rush)
Van Pelt entered the game in an odd scenario on a play late in the first half. Van Pelt lined up under center, as QB Jake Plummer lined up split wide. Van Pelt took the snap and took off for the end zone, scoring from seven yards away. It's a bit confusing why Denver would choose that precise moment to utilize Van Pelt, since Plummer is so adept at that very thing. Still, the play worked so all it really does is infuriate Plummer owners who lost their games by less than a touchdown. It was the first offensive play of Van Pelt's career.
2005 Week 17 vs SD (2 / 8 / 7 / 0 / 0 pass, 10 / 41 / 0 rush)
It's difficult to gauge how well Van Pelt did as a quarterback, since he spent most of his time running around and not throwing the football. He threw just 8 passes while taking off and running ten times. The Chargers incredibly didn't have many answers for Van Pelt. He wasn't catching anyone by surprise; he simply ran away from them. On the rare occasions he did throw the football, it didn't look very pretty so perhaps he knew what he was doing. Van Pelt was bailed out on one occasion when LB Shawne Merriman dropped a sure interception.
