Near the end of A Charlie Brown Christmas, Charlie Brown gets depressed and starts screaming about how there’s nobody left who knows what Christmas is all about, then gets abruptly shocked to silence when Linus walks to center-stage, asks for lights and delivers an impassioned reading of Luke 2:8.

It is no secret that I have given Brady Quinn a hard time throughout his NFL career, but this Sunday something happened which put me firmly in the young man’s corner.
