Now that Brady Quinn has gone and got himself swept up in the 24-hour news cycle, he’s moved on to damage manage.
As we documented earlier Tuesday, Quinn had some eyebrow-raising quotes in a GQ piece documenting the rise of Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. In it, Quinn bemoans the truth no one supported him with a billboard and said that some of Tebow’s on-field behavior wasn’t “very humble to me.”
Of course, when you take Tebow’s name in vain, you far better be prepared to duck the lightning bolts. Quinn does this even though casting blame on Michael Silver, the writer he feels deceived him.
“The comments attributed to me in a current magazine write-up are in NO WAY reflective of my opinion of Tim and the Broncos,” Quinn began in a five-component rant on his Twitter page. “Tim deserves a lot of credit for our achievement and I’m pleased for him and what he achieved. Most importantly, he is a fantastic teammate.
“That interview was conducted three months ago, and the resulting story was a entirely inaccurate portrayal of my comments,” he went on. “I have addressed my disappointment with the writer and have reached out to Tim to clear this up. I apologize to any person who feels I was attempting to take something away from our Team’s or Tim’s achievement this season.”
Other than egregious misquoting, it’s difficult to imagine what Silver could have performed to develop a “completely inaccurate portrayal.” Of course, Quinn is about to hit the totally free-agent marketplace, and he most likely doesn’t want to be recognized as the guy who spits on the floor on his way out the door.
