With all the talk about Brady slipping in the Draft, one has to wonder where all the information comes from. Does the media really want anyone to succeed or is it better for failures to abound? I think it is the latter. For most in the media it has become an epidemic to write about the failings of an individual. Quinn comes in with great numbers, great arm strength, started over 45 games and is a proven winner. And still, his "Stock" is falling.
“It’s kind of hard for a guy to slip when we haven’t done anything,” he said, meaning on the football field. “It’s funny to sit back and hear some of that, and you’re thinking: ‘Man, did I not, like, lift today? Did somebody see me in the weight room miss a rep?’ I’m kind of confused.”
