    Trying to get in front of the camera?

    The guy can't win. The media demand for him is enormous. If he wasn't so generous with the media, people would complain about that instead.

    Well, this isn't "people." It's the guy he leapfrogged on the depth chart. I don't quite recall Brady Quinn being camera-shy when he was on every other billboard before he had taken an NFL snap.

    Quinn's a fraud.

    I never really saw Tebow as "trying to get in front of the camera"

    He's the starting QB, the camera is going to find him.

    . . . not to mention asking $75 for autographed photos, even when he was in the infant stage of Being Nothing.

    Was Brady Quinn really ever on billboards? I ask genuinely, because I can't remember him ever having a big presence in the media. I may have seen him in an EAS commercial once, but that's about all I can remember of him.

    Eh, that's nothing new. Tommie Frazier once held an autograph signing at a nearby mall and charged $75 a pop and he never played a down in the NFL. Thankfully, I did not spring for it.

    I never got the sense that Tebow was flaunting his religion or pushing it on anyone. I think he answered a lot of questions honestly about it, but it didn't seem like Kurt Warner in 1999 who couldn't answer the simplest question without making a Jesus reference.

    Most teams have prayer circles at the end of games.

    Brady Quinn was an EAS pitchman coming out of college. Edit to add: Wow, you already noted that. Sorry.

    But I do recall the commercials being sort of everywhere. But I don't think Quinn was ever a big enough name to demand much more than a few ads for a relatively obscure sports nutrition company.

    If you're looking to get out of your contract in Denver, jumping Tebow would be the way to do it. Maybe Brady Quinn isn't such a dumbass after all.

    Still can't play, though.
