Brady Quinn is Totes Sorry For Being Bitter About Tim Tebow, Guys…
One of the more interesting sports pieces published this week was Michael Silver’s oral history of Tebowmania for GQ. The most interesting part of said piece — other than Terrell Suggs trolling so hard — was the surprisingly catty remarks from Brady Quinn (and to some extent Kurt Warner) regarding Tebow’s success. Here’s a taste:
BRADY QUINN (backup QB, Denver Broncos): 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.
Someone call the wahmbulance…
QUINN: We’ve had a lot of, I guess, luck, to put it simply
QUINN: 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?
It’s funny because he thinks someone is going to give him a chance to start…
Lest his obvious bitterness be construed as such, Quinn (who is a free agent) has issued an apology:
Quinn took to Twitter after the article’s release Tuesday, saying the comments attributed to him did not reflect his opinion of Tebow.
Tebow “deserves a lot of credit for our success and I’m happy for him and what he accomplished. Most importantly, he is a great teammate,” Quinn wrote.
Quinn said he’s reached out to Tebow directly “to clear this up,” adding, “I apologize to anyone who feels I was trying to take anything away from our team’s or Tim’s success this season.”
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.”
Dude, just own it. If anyone understands shitty quarterbacking it’s you. Maybe if you just keep on trolling, Terrell Suggs will let you enroll at Ball So Hard University and QB his intramural flag football team. That’s really the best case scenario for you at this point and it’s also probably the closest you’ll ever get to being a starting QB in the NFL.
Bonus Kurt Warner cattiness:
WARNER: I’m more of a purist, a drop-back passer, and there were times that it was almost difficult to watch. Like, this isn’t supposed to be happening, and I don’t know how to filter it through my brain.
Hey Tim! There’s only room for one Bible thumping Jesus freak in this sport. I’d like to see you draw our Lord this well:
