Perhaps if circumstances in Denver were different, former Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn would have played in a regular season game during his two years with the team. Instead, he was forced to battle it out with Kyle Orton and fan favorite Tim Tebow before riding the pine for two long NFL seasons.
Quinn went to the Kansas City Chief in the off season and could have the chance to play if Matt Cassel gets hurt. He will at least get more reps there than he did in Denver.
Quinn still has he believers and one of them is none other than his former college coach, Charlie Weis.
“Brady could have been a starting quarterback for me in the NFL,” Weis says.
“Go back and look at those numbers for the two years he played for me,” Weis said. “He was great. He wasn’t good. And I know if I had him as a quarterback, I would have felt very comfortable that I could have won no matter where we were.” -Charlie Weis (Kansas City Star)
I personally hope that Quinn does get a chance again. He was nothing but professional during a rough time in Denver. The last season that Quinn played (2009), he passed for 1,339 yards (67.2% completion rate), 8 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions in 10 games.
