Brady Quinn blasts teammate, Tebow
Denver Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn has finally expressed his feelings about being completely overlooked by the Broncos this season. At a time, Quinn was listed as the backup to Kyle Orton. When the fans spoke about their desire to see Tim Tebow, Quinn was demoted to the third-stringer. In a recent interview with GQ Magazine, Quinn spoke of his displeasure with the whole thing.
"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," Quinn said. "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."
Quinn, a first-round pick by Cleveland Browns in 2007, last played regularly in 2009 when he went 2-7 for the Browns. Since being traded to Denver, Quinn has not taken a snap in a regular season game.
Quinn also took a shot at Tebow's showcase of faith - a practice commonly known as "Tebowing".
"If you look at it as a whole, there's a lot of things that just don't seem very humble to me," Quinn said. "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."
On his Twitter feed, Quinn claims the GQ interview was conducted three months ago, and his comments are, "in NO way reflective of my opinion of Tim and the Broncos. Tim deserves a lot of credit for our success and I'm happy for him and what he accomplished."
