Brady Quinn Finally Showing What He Can Do?

It has been a long, strange road for Seattle Seahaks quarterback Brady Quinn, but if Friday night's performance is any indication he might finally be coming into his own as an NFL player.

Quinn was 5-8 against the Packers for 89 yards and a touchdown (and a beauty of a TD pass at that). After not getting much of a look in the second preseason game (3-4, 13 yards) fans have to be glad to see him step up in the third contest. He did well in the preseason opener as well (6-11, 59 yards and one touchdown).

Not bad, right? It is only preseason, but after watching him flounder in Cleveland and Kansas City and sitting in Denver the Fighting Irish Faithful have to be glad to see one of their favorite sons in action again.

He may not be lining up for a starter's job, but there are a lot of jobs that suck a whole lot more than being a back-up QB on a team that many consider a Super Bowl contender.

The only problem now is his competition, Tavaris Jackson, who has also looked good in preseason action. For the Seahawks it would not be bad to have two decent back-ups, but it would also not be surprising to see one of the two get dangled as trade bait.

  1. WAY TO GO BRADY QUINN!!! IRISH EYES ARE SMILING!
    CONSIDERING, THAT WAS THE SAME PLAY THAT BRADY HAD USED EARLIER TO WILLIAMS, WHO HAD THE DEFENSIVE BACK ALL OVER HIM, WHERE THE OFFICIAL'S DID NOT CALL INTERFERENCE WITH THE RECEIVER, AND I MIGHT ADD THAT PASS CAUSED THE BALL TO LAY ON TOP OF WILLIAM'S SHOULER -PADS CRADLED WITH ONE ARM ,AS I RECALL, BY WILLIAM'S AND THE DEF BACK, TO SEE IT THROWN AGAIN BY BRADY LATER ON THIS TIME ,WILLIAMS HAS HIS BACK TURNED AROUND TOWARD'S BRADY'S DIRECTION, WELL IT WAS A TERRIFIC RECEPTION, CATCHING THE BALL WITH BOTH HANDS INTO THE END ZONE!BUT I STILL BELIEVE STRONGLY, THAT SEATTLE WOULD HAVE BEEN AT THE 1 YARD LINE ON THAT FIRST ATTEMPT BY BRADY!?
