Quinn: Fans the reason Tebow jumped me on depth chart

The Year of Magical Stinking: An Oral History of Tebow Time

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….

...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?

Just in case you wanted confirmation that Brady Quinn won't be returning to the Denver Broncos, you've got it now.  Quinn's comments aren't just a criticism of Tebow, but the entire process by which the organization operated last year.

And for the record, Brady, I did have some Quinn billboards ready the week after the loss against the Lions. I just didn't run them because of the death threats.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
