Brady Quinn has carved out quite a role in sports media. That’s fortunate for him, because the former Notre Dame superstar certainly did not carve out a career as a consistent NFL starting quarterback.

Brady Quinn was considered a can’t-miss quarterback prospect by many after a stellar career at Notre Dame that saw him throw 69 touchdown passes his final two season in South Bend, and win the Maxwell Trophy, given to the nation’s top player, similar to the Heisman Trophy. His strong play saw the Fighting Irish re-emerge as a national power under Charlie Weis, as Quinn led Notre Dame to 19 wins over his last two seasons. He was projected to be a top-five pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, but slipped to the 22nd pick where he was taken by the Cleveland Browns. His NFL career was frankly terrible. Quinn was never really a permanent starter, and ended his career with just over 3,000 career passing yards and 12 touchdowns to 17 interceptions.

But, he’s now on Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff as well as hosting various football radio shows. Sadly, that has worked against him recently, as recent comments of his have found him in hot water.

Brady Quinn suggested that the Carolina Panthers have concerns about probable top-five pick, Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud. And, one of the reasons, he said, was that Stroud blew off the Manning Passing Academy.

That seems pretty dubious that it’s A) true and B) the Panthers would care that much.

Many in the NFL community have snapped back at Brady Quinn.

I expect Brady Quinn to be backtracking on this any day now.
