While former Broncos QB Brady Quinn engages in rather desperate damage control, let’s absorb his remarks to GQ Magazine’s Matt Silver in the just published, “The Year Of Magical Stinking : An Oral History Of Tebow Time”.
Early in the season, there was a game when Kyle [Orton] got hurt and the coaches were calling for me to go in, but Kyle got up and finished the game out. So I was the second-string guy. Then, a few weeks later, they decided to put Tim in. I felt like the fans had a lot to do with that. Just ’cause they were chanting his name. There was a big calling for him. No, I didn’t have any billboards. That would have been nice.
If you look at it as a whole, there’s a lot of things that just don’t seem very humble to me. When I get that opportunity, I’ll continue to lead not necessarily by trying to get in front of the camera and praying but by praying with my teammates, you know?
I’m sure when the CFL or an indoor football league come calling, Quinn’s promise to engage in low-key prayer will weigh heavily in where he ends up on the depth chart.
