At some point during the first half of Sunday's Chargers-Broncos game, as Kyle Orton was doing everything he could to get benched, the thought must've crossed backup quarterback Brady Quinn's mind. Maybe he'd be the guy to replace Orton.

After all, there was talk that Quinn, after a solid preseason, had passed Tim Tebow on the depth chart. Turns out, that was a figment of our imagination. On Monday, Broncos head coach John Fox spoke about the decision to go with Tebow over Quinn on Sunday.

"I think sometimes that’s not reality. I think the call to go with Tim was obviously something we discussed before, but I didn’t want that outwardly known regardless of perception. I think we kind of showed our hand.”

So, yes, things could be better on the work front for Quinn. But the former Browns first-round pick didn't let professional setbacks affect his personal life. So while no one will be calling Quinn "NFL starting quarterback" anytime soon, he is a recent recipient of the "Best Boyfriend" award, as bestowed upon him by girlfriend Alicia Sacramone, former Olympic gold-medalist.


Let's see you top that, Tebow.

(In related news: ESPN's QBR stat has now been readjusted to account for Quinn's chivalry and he's now ahead of Tebow in the Week 5 rankings.)

A nobody QB out of Notre Dame and a Gymnist nobody cares about.
And yet you know that Quinn went to Notre Dame and Sacramone was a gymnast.  She won a Gold Medal, he plays in the NFL, you comment on sports website forums.  Either one of them is more special on their worst day than you are on your best.

Sacramone: 'best boyfriend' award goes to Brady

As a friend pointed out to me this preseason- the whole reason Quinn was named  "backup" was to get him exposure so that they could try to get some team to trade for him.
Your friend doesn't know what he/she is talking about.  Nobody was going to trade for Quinn.  Hell, nobody was trading for Quinn when Cleveland wanted to get rid of him.  Nobody except McDaniels.  What has Quinn done since then to up his stock?  Sit on the bench?  If anyone wants him, he'll be available as a free agent at the end of the year.

Fox and the front office for Denver are playing some serious mind games.  Unnecessary mind games.  I don't like the direction things are going and all of that has little to do with Tebow.  This move was Belichickian and nobody on this team, from owner to player, has done anything to warrant that kind of egotism.  Yeah, I get it.  Elway won a couple Super Bowls and went to 5, but as a front office man, he's done exactly jack and squat in the NFL.  If Tebow was the back up, he should have been appointed as the back up instead of these dumbass shenanigans.

"crappy Cleveland Browns" is a bit redundant, no? The mere mention of them implies "crappiness"


I am a Cleveland Browns fan, I acknowledge my team's lousiness!

It's kinda funny that Fox said Quinn outperformed Tebow all preseason and in practice but now he's saying Tebow gives them the best chance to win...   I think the media/fan pressure is getting to him...   Not that Quinn would be great, but the Denver receivers are ten times better then what he had to work with on that crappy Cleveland Browns team.
