Brady Quinn Cheap Shot
November 18, 2009 by USA Post
Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn’s alleged cheap shot against Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs has the sports world talking, and has Google rubberneckers taking “Brady Quinn cheap shot” all the way to the top of Google Trends. So what happened?
During the Ravens’ 16-0 rout of the Browns, Quinn threw the second of his two interceptions for the game, after which he attempted to make a tackle. Instead of the tackle, however, he dove right into Suggs’ knees, which resulted in Suggs leaving the game with a knee injury. According to Larry Brown Sports, Suggs suffered a strained knee, and may miss several weeks worth of play.

For his part, Quinn walked over to Suggs to talk to him, presumably to ask if the linebacker was OK. According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Quinn told reporters after the game that he was “trying to go for the ball carrier” and that, at the last minute, Suggs came into his vision at the last second.
Nonetheless, Quinn was flagged 15 yards for the infraction, and will most likely be fined by the NFL later this week.
Quinn said, “I would never wish that upon anyone….I couldn’t be any more sorry about that. [To injure Suggs] was never the intent. I’m sorry to Terrell and the rest of their team.”
But some players aren’t buying Quinn’s explanation, opting to call what they see as a cheap shot a cheap shot. The Dealer reported that Ray Lewis, Suggs’ fellow linebacker for the Ravens, when asked about whether or not Quinn’s tackle was a cheap shot, said “Heck yeah it was a cheap shot…When you’re running down and you’re looking at the quarterback going at somebody’s knees who doesn’t even have the ball…That’s an illegal blow. I don’t care how you want to look at it.”
