Brady Quinn Rips Tim Tebow in New GQ Article
In a GQ article that has officially gone viral, Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn had some less than flattering things to say about number 15.
Michael Silver, a senior NFL writer for Yahoo! Sports, was as perplexed by ‘Tebowmania’ as anyone. Silver got quotes from Tebow’s teammates, other players in the league, analysts, coaches, and executives to provide an oral history of the Tebow story.
Predictably, the guys who haven’t held back relished the opportunity to lay into Tebow. Terrell Suggs, Nick Barnett, and Shawne Merriman marginalized the Tebow story to nothing more than luck and smoke and mirrors.
Von Miller was quick to come to Tebow’s defense and offered encouraging words. However, it’s what quarterback Brady Quinn said that grabbed people’s attention. Based on what Quinn said it doesn’t look like he will be in a Broncos uniform next season.
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.
It became apparent how much it was starting to bother Quinn after the Bears game. He had this to say.
We’ve had a lot of, I guess, luck, to put it simply
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?
