I went to the pre-season opening game for the Detroit Lions yesterday. I went because I was invited by my friend, Quinn Pitcock, who was signed by the Lions, but still has to prove himself to end up on the final roster. Quinn, a recovering video game addict, got in a fair amount of playing time. He deflected a pass, but his chief role was that the Bengals offense double-teamed him a good deal of the time, perhaps aware of the 340-pound, All-American defenseman’s powerful potential. During the second quarter—Quinn played the whole second quarter— the Bengals offense settled for quick passes to avoid the pass rush. They ran almost always to the side opposite to where Quinn was playing. I will be following Quinn’s comeback. I am really rooting for this guy. Quinn’s story is a compelling one, and one to which many can relate. Check out his struggles!
