Broncos Backup QB Brady Quinn had a recent interview with GQ where he pretty much laid out all the complaints that Tebow naysayers had been stating since his emergence. Quinn apparently was supposed to get in the game early in the season where Orton was hurt (Orton returned to the game), and once the fan’s began chanting for Tebow, it became inevitable that he wasn’t getting in. Quinn went on to state:
“The entire game, the defensive line is chasing the quarterback around, and that wears down the pass rush,” he said. “Meanwhile, the defensive backs are chasing receivers, but you only throw eight passes, so they start to feel lazy. It only takes that one play, that one big pass, for a touchdown.”
Welp. Not like anything he said was a lie for real, is he bitter? Yes, I would be too if I was the #2 guy at one point and got overtaken by a below-average passer with billboards around town, but that’s just me. I think I’d be less angry and more confused if he kept winning…wait, he did? Oh.
Well regardless, Quinn had his shot in Cleveland and he looked terrible, while he may get a second shot this upcoming season it’s doubtful that he’ll go far. One could argue Quinn could have won a few of those games, especially with that defense, but I don’t think he would have pulled off the Steelers’ game.
What do you think? Is Quinn right in saying what he said, or should he have kept his mouth shut? Regardless, someone made him apologize, he released one earlier today.
