Russell Wilson says God picks winners and losers. An All-Pro on the other side of the ball says He separates the injured-reserve list from the active roster.
“I hated [that] Jordy [Nelson] got hurt, but in my beliefs, and the way I believe, it was — God meant for Jordy to get hurt,” Glover Quin told MLive.com. “So if he wouldn’t have got hurt today, if he wouldn’t have played in that game, if he wouldn’t have practiced anymore, and the next time he walked on the field would have been opening day, I feel like he would have got hurt opening day.”
God, after listening patiently to questions from Breitbart Sports, provided no comment. The Creator once again leaves the creation to debate just what it all means.
The injured receiver plays as Aaron Rodgers’ favorite target. He caught 98 balls for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. But he won’t catch a single pass this year after tearing an ACL in a preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Count Quin as a football predestinarian in the great free will vs. fate gridiron debate. Montana or Brady? Spike or endzone dance? Navy blue or powder blue Chargers unis? These controversies pale next to the question of whether Gene Steratore should flag God for unnecessary roughness this season.
Quin continued that what appears as a curse may in fact prove a blessing for Green Bay (he speaks from the jaundiced perspective of a Detroit Lion). “So in that sense, now they’ve got three weeks to make adjustments and prepare before opening day, as opposed to it happening opening day and now you’re in the season and now Jordy gets hurt,” he explained. “It happening in the preseason, you hate that it happened, but that gives them time to make adjustments and try to find something.”
The Lord works in mysterious ways.
