Brady Quinn Has Billboard Envy

GQ has just released an oral history of Tim Tebow's 2011 season, calling it "The Year of Magical Stinking." At the start of the piece, we learn that Brady Quin has what we can term "billboard envy." Remember, a Tim Tebow billboard went up early in the season, asking coach John Fox to sit Kyle Orton for Tim Tebow. Quinn never got a billboard, but he certainly wishes he did have one:

Early in the season, there was a game when Kyle [Orton] got hurt and the coaches were calling for me to go in, but Kyle got up and finished the game out. So I was the second-string guy. Then, a few weeks later, they decided to put Tim in. I felt like the fans had a lot to do with that. Just 'cause they were chanting his name. There was a big calling for him. No, I didn't have any billboards. That would have been nice.

Because someone would have realized before the playoffs that Brady Quinn was, in fact, on the Denver Broncos roster? That he would have been fined by the other quarterbacks for that, like Tebow was?
