SiriusXM host and previous NFL quarterback Brady Quinn talks with The Post’s Justin Terranova about boy-band operate-ins, his massive Jimmy Garoppolo problem, a Patrick Mahomes myth and a Tom Brady landing spot.
Q: What is your most attention-grabbing experience on Radio Row?
A: Very last calendar year, I had to hustle from the CBS HQ to SiriusXM setups and there was a large group in the middle. I am retaining my head down, striving to reduce by individuals. There was a smaller gentleman, I actually picked him up and moved him. And I was like, “Sorry I have to jump on the radio.” And it was a person of the Backstreet Boys. It created perception simply because so lots of individuals have been having pictures.
Q: What is the exhilaration stage for this matchup?
A: You bought two new groups in it. It is not your typical AFC group, no matter if it be [Tom] Brady, [Ben] Roethlisberger or [Peyton] Manning. You have bought Patrick Mahomes, and it feels like a switching-of-the-guard instant. In the NFC, it is a group coming off a four-twelve period and there’s this dominant defense. Jimmy Garoppolo helps make plays in spots when he desires to. There’s a freshness to this matchup.

Q: What have you found from Garoppolo’s advancement this period?
A: Initial off, he receives tagged as this recreation manager simply because of the little sample sizing from the postseason, but he threw thirty passes a recreation in the regular (period). You go back again and observe wherever he beat New Orleans and Drew Brees in a shootout. He created the clutch plays in that recreation. He’s extremely able of carrying out the factors he desires to do. The biggest space he desires to expand is cutting down on blunders. When you get some pressure on him, and it is early, he begins to develop into — I loathe the phrase happy ft — but you do get the perception of him remaining tense and forcing factors. It is such a stark contrast to Mahomes.
Q: How distinct will it be for Mahomes, going up versus a 49ers defense with its skill to get pressure?
A: It is not just finding pressure, it is finding him down. Here’s the issue: When you get him out of the pocket, he only receives much more particular. So, you cannot just say “get pressure” — they have to get hits on him. They require to have him enjoy a good deal of next-and-10s.
Q: If Brady leaves New England, wherever could he go?
A: The very last time we have found just about anything like this was with Peyton Manning going to the Broncos. A good deal of the things that plays into that conclusion — they had a sound supporting cast with a jogging recreation and fantastic wide receivers and a truly fantastic defense. The only group that would make perception from that standpoint is the Chargers.
