Chicago Bears defensive end Robert Quinn has added another line to the list of all-time sports quotes.
When asked about being so open with the media, Quinn explained a man only has "his word and his nuts" and "you don't wanna lose either" (starts at :30 mark):
Quinn, in case that quote didn't make it clear, hasn't been shy about expressing himself to the media. He sounded off on the officiating after a Week 15 loss to the Minnesota Vikings when the teams were flagged for a total of 16 penalties.
"Honestly, some of these calls are starting to get a little crazy," Quinn told reporters. "These refs seem like they're controlling the game a little too much. If a play is clean and they're throwing a flag over something that they thought they can change the game just by one flag, I mean, let guys play ball."
This season hasn't gone the way anyone with the Bears would have liked. They are entering Sunday's final game against the Vikings with a 6-10 record and will miss the playoffs for the ninth time in the past 11 seasons.
Quinn has been one of the few bright spots for Chicago. The 31-year-old set a new franchise single-season record with his 18th sack in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the New York Giants.
