Seahawks backup quarterback Brady Quinn says there were some positive lessons to take from the experience of playing in Kansas City in 2012.
The Chiefs never got it started leading to a 2-14 season, with both Quinn and fellow QB Matt Cassel [now with the Vikings] unable to get the offense into gear.
Quinn talks about how things went wrong, but how the team stuck together in the face of the Jerome Belcher murder-suicide.
“Reflecting back on my time in Kansas City, it was obviously tough the way the season went,” Quinn said, via Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star.
“I think it was crazy, just thinking back a year ago now this time of yea, looking at the situation, looking at our roster, and looking at all the possibilities of what we’d be able to accomplish.
“It just seems like, it looked so great on paper, but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way on the field and off the field.”
“I was just proud of the way a lot of the men kind of were able to persevere and fight through some of the adversity we faced,” Quinn said of the Jovan Belcher tragedy.
“Again, football is one thing, but there were some life-changing events, too, that took place, and guys were still able to maintain and be there for one another and fight through it.”
