While people tend to praise Tebow for...

The moment the GQ article where Brady Quinn said some not so nice things about Tim Tebow hit the internet, the countdown began for Quinn to either apologize or say he was misquoted. Quinn did both on his Twitter page yesterday afternoon. “The comments attributed to me in a recent magazine article are in NO WAY reflective of my opinion of Tim and the Broncos. Tim deserves a lot...
