Brady Quinn is a little bitter about Tim Tebow
In an article run by GQ giving “An Oral History of Tebow Time” via interviews with teammates and other football personalities, fellow Broncos QB Brady Quinn gave a few quotes that seemed a little bitter about Tebow’s leapfrogging of Quinn in the depth chart and his sucess, which Quinn attributed to “luck”.
On Tebow’s jump in the depth chart:
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.
On his shortcomings as a quarterback:
The entire game, the defensive line is chasing the quarterback around, and that wears down the pass rush. 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.
After Denver’s Week 14 OT win against the Bears:
We’ve had a lot of, I guess, luck, to put it simply.
On Tebow’s public displays of religious-ness:
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?
