In this interview with GQ with Michael Silver, Denver Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn had some harsh words for savior of the masses, Tim Tebow.
Quinn on the Broncos' wins over the Raiders and Chiefs near the middle of the season...
Quinn on the Broncos' amazing comeback win over the Bears...
Pretty harsh words from the former Notre Dame star. But now, this NFL.com article is indicating that Quinn went on a Twitter rant that pretty much said he was misquoted. He called the quotes (keep in mind, direct quotes and not summaries) a "completely inaccurate portrayal" of his feelings towards Tebow.
My thoughts on this? Someone from Quinn's management team saw the interview with Silver, and told the quarterback that he needed to essentially distance himself from the comments so as to not make teams think that he's jealous of Tebow's success, and the support the Broncos have had for him.
Is this what it's coming to? NFL players are scared to criticize Tebow because they're afraid of what the comments they make will mean for their personal careers? My god, it's an epidemic that cannot be stopped. For the record, a few other NFL players and coaches are quoted in the piece, and as far as I know, none of them have backed away from their comments.
