Quinn apologizes for Tebow comments

 

NFL: Brady Quinn is apologizing to Tim Tebow for unflattering comments Quinn made about the Denver Broncos’ starting quarterback in a GQ article.

The article on Tebowmania was written by Michael Silver and titled “The year of Magical Stinking: An Oral History of Tebow Time.”

In it, Quinn was quoted as saying, “We’ve had a lot of, I guess, luck, to put it simply.” He also said he felt the fans were the reason Tebow leapfrogged him on the depth chart when supplanting Kyle Orton as the starter after a 1-4 start.

Quinn also said in the article that the way Tebow expresses his faith doesn’t “seem very humble to me.” Both men are Christians.

Proctor’s return nets pay dirt

Rodeo: World champion bull rider Shane Proctor earned a little traveling money last weekend in his first competition since a gruesome injury at the National Finals Rodeo in December.

 Proctor, a native of Coulee Dam, Wash., now living in North Carolina, earned almost $2,700 at the Okeecho- bee (Fla.) Xtreme Bulls competition.

 It was the first time Proctor got on a bull since the final round of the NFR. Proctor, who had wrapped up the championship before his ride, bucked off and suffered a broken left arm that required surgery.
