In the article Quinn said the Broncos may have been swayed by fan pressure to pick Tebow over him. These are fans, you'll remember, who erected a billboard that read: "Broncos Fans to John Fox: Play Tebow!!"
"I felt like the fans had a lot to do with that," Quinn said in GQ. "Just 'cause they were chanting his name. There was a big calling for him. No, I don't have any billboards. That would have been nice."
Quinn also told the mag that under Tebow, "We've had a lot of, I guess, luck, to put it simply."
Yesterday, Quinn was busy crafting an about-face on Twitter.
"The comments attributed to me in a recent magazine article are in NO WAY reflective of my opinion of Tim and the Broncos," he wrote. "Tim deserves a lot of credit for our success and I'm happy for him and what he accomplished. Most importantly, he is a great teammate.
"That interview was conducted 3 months ago, and the resulting story was a completely inaccurate portrayal of my comments. I have addressed my disappointment with the writer and have reached out to Tim to clear this up. I apologize to anyone who feels I was trying to take anything away from our team's or Tim's success this season."
On this date in 1990, La Salle' Lionel Simmons scored his 3,000th point in a win over Manhattan. Simmons finished his career with 3,217 points, third on the all-time NCAA list behind Pete Maravich and Freeman Williams.
