Jeanne, FSB’s awesome Jaguars blogger over at Black & Teal, was nice enough to give us a little insight on Chiefs new QB Quinn Gray.
I am so happy that Quinn Gray found a place! He was a really reliable backup and the reason the Jaguars let him go, from my understanding, is that he wanted to see if he could find a starting spot somewhere else. That may be code for ‘he wanted more money’ but we signed Cleo Lemon after he left for a nice sum so I doubt that was it.
Quinn Gray was the star of NFL Europe. He led the Frankfurt Galaxy to a win in World Bowl XI back in 2003 before coming back to the Jaguars. He is a Florida guy through and through, born here, played his college ball here and then played for the Jaguars. That’s a good thing. Florida has an amazing wealth of football players. His touchdown to interception ratio is great at 12:5. Quinn Gray helped hold the team together after Garrard went down last year. I don’t think he’ll do you guys wrong.
PS: You can’t blame Quinn for the two losses when he started. One of the games he ‘started’ in was the game Garrard went down. Against the Colts. The team had trouble adjusting. The other game was against the Saints and Brees threw for almost 400 yards or something similarly ridiculous. Gray did all he could but it is hard to win when your defense is asleep.
