QB Quinn Gray - Kansas City Chiefs
|6-3, 246||Born: 5-21-1979||College: Florida A&M||Drafted: ---|
2008 Week 12 vs BUF (7 / 8 / 76 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 27 / 0 rush)
Gray got into the game in the fourth quarter with the game out of reach. He played in two series and responded by completing seven of eight for 76 yards and one late touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe.
2007 Week 6 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Gray took a knee at the end of the game.
2007 Week 7 vs IND (9 / 24 / 56 / 0 / 2 pass, 2 / 8 / 0 rush)
Gray entered the game in the second quarter after Garrard's injury, and he played the entire second half after Garrard was unable to continue. His passes were often erratic, and he frequently overthrew his receivers. His first pass went for negative yardage, and his second was intercepted by Bob Sanders, which set up Manning's second TD drive. Gray dropped back to pass only two times in the third quarter, the first one resulting in an incompletion, and the second resulting in a Dwight Freeney sack in the end zone for a safety. His three fourth quarter drives ended in an INT, a failed fourth down attempt, and a sack/fumble.
2007 Week 8 vs TB (7 / 16 / 100 / 1 / 0 pass, 3 / 0 / 0 rush)
Gray was asked to take a safe approach with most of his passes. He appeared nervous initially, and overthrew several of his intended receivers. For a brief stretch he seemed to settle down and looked sharp in completing a couple passes in the intermediate range, but overall did not get into a rhythm, in part due to the Jaguars' emphasis on the running game. Gray displayed good arm strength on the few times he was asked to throw a pass that was not short, but struggled with his touch and accuracy on some of his shorter attempts. He did show good poise in connecting on a nice touchdown pass to Matt Jones and on some throws he made in the fourth quarter, but overall had an uneven game.
2007 Week 9 vs NO (20 / 33 / 354 / 2 / 3 pass, 3 / 6 / 0 rush)
Gray showed ease and high comfort level with throwing deep passes, and as a result of completing some of them, garnered a lot of passing yards. However he made some bad and inaccurate throws, which caused him to have three interceptions and miss receivers who were open at other times. Although he was inconsistent, Gray showed if given time to throw he could make some big plays in the deep passing game. He attempted the majority of his passes from the pocket and did not show much of an inclination to scramble when his protection broke down.
2007 Week 10 vs TEN (13 / 23 / 101 / 1 / 0 pass, 3 / 13 / 0 rush)
Gray attempted mostly shorter passes, and only threw deep a couple times. He started accurately, but then had stretches where he missed open receivers, usually overthrowing them although they were open at the time. He did not lose his poise, and made some key plays late, both running and passing, to help guide his team to the victory. Gray again demonstrated a strong arm, but was not consistently accurate as he relied on his arm strength in an attempt to get the ball to his receivers more than touch.
2007 Week 14 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 19 / 0 / 0 pass, 4 / 13 / 0 rush)
Quinn Gray came into the game late in the fourth quarter. He threw one pass for 19 yards and it was good for a first down leading to their final field goal. On third and nine, he also scrambled for 15 yards. It took the clock to the two minute warning. Gray just knelt down three times after the warning.
2007 Week 16 vs OAK (5 / 8 / 54 / 2 / 0 pass, 2 / 16 / 0 rush)
Gray entered the game once the rout was complete - or at least appeared to be. He added two more touchdowns to the score, on throws to Reggie Williams and backup TE Richard Angulo. Gray seemed a little off when he came in, but once he settled in, he ran the offense like the well-oiled machine it appeared to be.
2007 Week 17 vs HOU (25 / 39 / 302 / 4 / 0 pass, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Gray seemed very comfortable directing the Jaguars' offense and posted stellar numbers as a result. He remained calm in the face of an aggressive pass rush and was in sync with his receivers. Gray looked for his wide receivers throughout the game and did not target his tight ends very much. He displayed a very strong arm both on deep passes and on shorter ones where he rifled the ball to his receivers in tight spaces, and enough touch when needed.
2006 Week 17 vs KC (13 / 22 / 166 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 26 / 2 rush)
Quinn Gray has spent his three seasons in the league as the third string quarterback behind Leftwich and Garrard. After Garrard's throw for an interception, with the Jaguars trailing 28-10, he was called on to lead the Jaguars and did not relinquish his position for the rest of the game. Gray looked sharp, spreading the ball around, and scrambling. He passed for 166 yards and ran for 26 yards. He only ran twice but each time it resulted in an impressive touchdown. He appeared to have the confidence and the momentum as the game was winding down. Possibly he needed one more chance.
2005 Week 17 vs TEN (8 / 14 / 100 / 2 / 0 pass, 3 / 1 / 0 rush)
Gray came in relief of Garrard in the second half and played a great half in his NFL debut. He was not afraid to show off his strong arm on his first NFL pass attempt going deep for Matt Jones although it fell incomplete. On his second series, Gray orchestrated an 84 yard drive that culminated in his first NFL touchdown pass on a bullet throw to Matt Jones from ten yards away. He followed that possession with another touchdown pass, this time to Ernest Wilford for a 15 yard score. Gray has a very strong arm and threaded the needle on several passes and also showed nice touch on a few passes including the strike to WIlford. He finished his half of play completing eight of 14 passes for 100 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
