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.)

I thought he was gay.  Pretty girlfriend.  I doubt he anounces "now I'm done," to her.  I think he could start somewhere...maybe.

He's like the Mike Comrie of NFL.  Except his gf isn't as famous.

Just as the moaning stopped, they heard..."NOW I'M DONE!"

Then they realized it was Brewski telling TeBlow he finished kissing his ass!

Remember the big debat back in 2007 - who's better Brady Quinn or Jamarcus Russell, who'll have the better career, who'll set more records...

A couple in an adjoining hotel room in Denver were about to file noise complaints for all the moaning and groaning going on in the room next door.  Then they realized it was Quinn.  How did they know?  Just as the moaning stopped, they heard..."NOW I'M DONE!"

He is out of Dever after this season anyway. Why name a guy second on the depth chart and  give third more playing time. What a joke a pathetic move by elway on Fox on this oone. Cut the man loose to try to have a career. Miami pobably would like to give him a shot. Bad pool by Denver on this one.

Great Article! Now that I have finished browsing Seventeen Magazine, maybe I can swing through CBS and see some things that are sports related! Oh wait, I am on Sportsline.com??? What in the _________?!!!!! This is ridiculous! I honestly thought I would click on this article to see Quinn has finally came out of the closet with new beau Tim Tebow. Who cares what awards they win! Neither will EVER win any NFL related awards...
