Jake-Plummer.jpg On HBO's Inside the NFL, Peter King interviewed Denver QB Jake Plummer about the horrific treatment the Tillman family have received over Pat's death. There have been four investigations into what really happened to him and now a fifth one is getting close to being completed. How reprehensible has this been for the Tillman family? Pat is killed and they were repeatedly lied to. The family is not speaking out, but Plummer is. Good for him. Somebody has to.

King: When you first heard that they hid these irregularities, were you outraged?

Plummer: It just made you feel kinda sick that they'd cover up something like that to--for whatever reason. We were all led to believe he died in leading his troops up the hill and then they come tell us it wasn't--it was friendly fire. What can you do-- you're at their mercy and..you just feel for the family...
