Poor Brady Quinn. He just can’t catch a freakin’ break. Nobody will throw this guy a bone.
Quinn has been outed by GQ magazine for basically bitching about his teammate (and perhaps enemy….??!) Tim Tebow. In it, Quinn was quoted, “We’ve had a lot of, I guess, luck, to put it simply.” He also said he felt the fans were the reason Tebow leapfrogged him on the depth chart when supplanting Kyle Orton as the starter after a 1-4 start. “I felt like the fans had a lot to do with that,” Quinn said in the article. “Just ’cause they were chanting his name. There was a big calling for him. No, I don’t have any billboards. That would have been nice.”
Quinn also said in the article that Tebow’s expression of faith “doesn’t seem very humble to me.” NOOOOOooOOOO WAAAaaaaaYYYYyyyy. Who could tell? Tebow hides it soo gosh darn well 😛
To protect his own culo after the article’s release, Quinn took to his twitter account to set the record straight, claiming that the comment expressed in the article did not reflect his opinion of Tebow. Yea right Brady. Give it up, you jealin’ on Tebow and always will be if you continue to ride the bench.
Quinn also said on Twitter that “the resulting story was a completely inaccurate portrayal of my comments. I have addressed my disappointment with the writer and have reached out to Tim to clear this up.” Well DUH. You know as well as everybody else in the NFL knows Tebow isn’t going anywhere, not with the winning season the Broncos had (perhaps swayed by Jesus, only Tebow really knows).
Tebow won seven of his first eight starts and produced a series of stirring fourth-quarter comebacks that made up for his poor passing and messy mechanics. With Tebow at quarterback, the Broncos reached the playoffs for the first time since 2005, and they won their first game, against Pittsburgh, when Tebow threw an electrifying 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime. ShooOOOooooot.
The author of the GQ article, Michael Silver, blasted Brady on Twitter as well claiming that he was in the right, “I quoted him accurately. Interview on tape.” In another entry, Silver said: “I have the transcript and tape to back it up. I do agree that Brady is a standup guy, and his tone was not bitter.” Playback that shizzzz Silver.
Oh stop that Mr. Silver, you don’t need to clear the air. Quinn is just a lil’ Irish brat who has yet to get what he wants out of the NFL. And who can blame him? Quinn set 36 Fighting Irish records during his four seasons with the team. Quinn was placed fourth in the Heisman trophy voting behind Reggie Bush, Vince Young and Matt Leinart. HMmmmmm two Trojans in there as well as a player who beat the Trojans in the Championship game all by himself……very G if you ask me. Ain’t so fighting now are we Brady? Just watch this video where Quinn is playing SC in 2006, mouthing “f*ck me”, expressing the pure discontent he has with his team as well as himself. Basically he knew he couldn’t compete on the same level of the awesome possum Trojans. Word
Quinn was a first round pick for the Cleveland Browns in 2007, which unfortunately later sent him packing 3 years later to Denver. Once known as a Heisman hopeful at Notre Dame, Brady Quinn’s career has gone from fame to college football to NFL bust. Now why is that? Hmmmmmm, let’s just go through the string of NFL hopefuls coming out of the Golden Domer family.
You got Rick Mirer, a quarterback who only played 4 seasons in Seattle and spent most of his career as a backup. Kent Graham, Blair Kiel, Ken Karcher, the list goes on and on. And my personal favorite: Jimmy the Jerk Clausen. Now this guy is a piece of work (and I’m not talking about his busted face).I guess you could say he under-performed at Notre Dame, losing all the important games (notably USC, suck it IRISH) and failing to lead the team to a decent bowl game. He pissed off South Bend to the point where a die-hard Irish football fan (because let’s face it, what else is there to do in South Bend?) punched him in his busted face outside one of the townie bars. Punching the QB of the football team you so love and cherish? Wow Clausen is truly a class A JERK.
Carolina drafted him in the 2nd round. After just three NFL starts and being pulled in week 5, Clausen was benched after completing 47 percent of his passes with one touchdown and three interceptions. Clausen also fumbled seven times, losing two, and had a 52.2 passer rating. Yikes In 2011 the Panthers used their number one overall draft pick to select Cam Newton of Auburn. After a four-game preseason competition, Panthers coaches decided that Newton would be named the starter for the 2011 NFL Season.
Clausen had improved little over his 2010 regular season performance in the 2011 preseason, finishing 24/46 passing (52.2%) and 260 yards and a 5.70 average with 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions and was sacked 7 times in 53 dropbacks and had a quarterback rating of 58.2, similar to his 2010 regular season performance. The Panthers also signed veteran QB Derek Anderson to the team. Clausen was then demoted to third string. BUWHAHAHAa the jerk is getting what he deserves. Booyah.
Notre Dame hasn’t produced a decent NFL QB since Joe Montana…….ouch, 20 years yo. The Gold Domers aren’t feeling so hot these days. Sounds like a dry spell to me. Brady Quinn case and point. Yes, you are jealous Brady Quinn but just do yourself a favor and shut up. Nothing good can come of talking about Tim Tebow, your arch nemesis. It just pisses everybody off and allows ESPN to substitute auto tuning song videos for actual sports broadcasts. Just take a couple of snaps in practice, drink the Bronco Gatorade and pray that Tebow goes too far with his religious practices and upsets his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
