Doing this on the heel's of Tebow's solid game last week can only mean one thing.....your decision makers really don't want Tebow starting in Denver.

I think one thing that really made a massive difference last week that no one seemed to mention was that Quinn was playing with the exact same OL as Tebow (except the center). And boy was it obvious.

Just go and look at Quinn's TD throw, he had more time on that one throw than Tebow did on all his throws combined.

But I'm still really interested to see how Quinn gets on tonight. Would love Quinn or Tebow to get some first team reps also but don't see it happening.

Final thing, I bet Dareus can't ****ing wait for tonight. He has a chip in his shoulder with the Broncos and with Orton in the back field he could have a nice game.

hard to dispute this. but to be fair, quinn also came off a great performance with the #3s, so you cant say he didnt earn a shot with the 2s. tebow also didnt earn to be demoted, so tough spot.

Maybe they are thinking if he plays amazing against the third team that people will want him to start even more, and then they HAVE to start him. I know it's a ridiculous pipe dream, but one can only hope.

MacGruder
08-20-2011, 03:51 PM
Not really.. it could be just a way to show that they are being fair.. perception was that Quinn looked better. So move him to number 2 and see if he can still play well.

What will likely happen is that Quinn will show how crappy he is and Tebow will show to be the better player in actuality.

Then things go back,

Also remember that Quinn and Tebow rotated as number 2s last season a lot as well.

Quinn looked the best of all the QB's and he had the worst help. He deserves more playing time. All the other players that did well last preseason game got promoted. It shouldn't be any different for the QB position.

Yeah - I'd say this is clear that they are trying to justify Orton starting. "Look - Tebow isn't even good enough for 2nd string!" Either way, it is becoming exceedingly clear that our QBOTF is not on the team. Hooray for drafting a 1st round QB next year, and hoping he develops! ****.

(not that I knew that Tebow was the answer; I just really really hoped he was. ****)

I think his play is overblown.. the offense was productive.. but he lost to the other backup and went in with a lead. So I don't really know what you can make of his play really.. he also had some really bad throws that could have easily been interceptions.

Mr 2/6, ride your run game to the RZ, audible out of the run, get penalized at the one to move your team back and settle for 3 is running with the 1s.

This has nothing to do with Tebow, so people need to calm down. What it does have to do with 100%, is Brady Quinn, who has earned a shot at the #2 with how he has looked in camp and how he looked great for the most part last week. If Quinn looks awesome, well that's great. We either have another possible quarterback of the future or some potential trade bait. If he sucks, Tebow goes right back to #2, no harm done.

08-20-2011, 04:09 PM
I just thought of another angle....

Think of it like this.. a preseason game is the show.. you save your best performance for the finale. People probably would have left the game with Quinn closing.. AND it allows Tebow to win the game unlike Quinn last time. haha

Tebow will torch third stringers too.. think of it as marketing.

Brady Quinn sucks. This is nothing more than a PR move. Elway does not believe in Tebow. He really doesn't. **** - maybe he's right. I really don't know. I was just excited for Broncos football last year with Tebow at the helm, and think he earned a real chance last year. And by real chance, I mean a chance to play in games with the first string effing offense and see what he can do. I know some people hate the thought, but there are guys who perform best when the real games begin and bullets are flying. Oh well. I will root for the team and hope for the best. But - I am now a firm believer that he will never get a real shot here.

Tebow will have a specialty spot inside the 5 and short yardage in the NFL. That's about all he will amount to. I think they should move him to TE. We need one.

This is simply due to Quinn playing well enough to deserve a look with the 2s in game situations. Either way, Orton will be starting and we will hav a special Tebow package for the regular season, hopefully it is a goal line package.

I just hope that Tebow gets a shot at some point and if he ends up #3 on the depth chart and Orton and Quinn both leave at the end of the season that we don't rush into drafting a QB next year.

Bull crap. Our TE play was horrid in game 1. We have none that can block real well or hold an edge. Yes we have a few pass catchers but those one sided players are easy to find. All the camp reports were saying thomas looked good because he looked ok in passing game. None of the TE's could executed very basic blocking assignments. Its a very weak position on the team.

wasn't it champ that said Quinn looked much more confident for some reason.. I wonder if he forgot how bad his is by not playing for so long? That could be very motivational.. we will see if reality sets in tonight.

In the off season i passing drills and in training camp and against third stringers he probably felt like he was back at Notre Dame with their level of competition..

I just don't know how you go from trading Orton to Miami so that Tebow can take the reigns to Tebow being 3rd string by the second preseason game. I'm just really questioning this front office right now, they seem to have very little direction or purpose right now.

This front office had 3 games of real live NFL tape on Tebow, an OC who coached him all of last year - and from JAN to JUL this FO was able to chew on the situation - and in JUL put Orton on the block. The decision was made to go in a different direction.

Orton refuses to go to MIA becuase they won't give him a truckload of money - and all of a sudden the Broncos brass are enamored with him? It is scary that six months of analysis is thrown away after watching a couple days of guys in shorts.

It isn't bad enough that they decided to sit on the dove valley porch this offseason and watch all the good free agent DT's drive right on past.

Now they want to snuff out just about the only reason to watch this team.

Why isn't Quinn starting tonight? Orton looked like garbage in the first preseason game. Why isn't Tebow in front of Orton? Tebow looked better in the first preseason game.

I did a literal facepalm when I was watching the draft and Tebow put on a Broncos hat. I have never once said he will succeed. I simply don't know - but I continue to believe he should get the chance simply because Orton is never going to get a long-term contract and will be gone after this year. He's a mediocre journeyman.

Right now I'm accepting the fact that that is never going to happen. Tebow is never going to be given a real chance to compete for this job by EFX, which can only mean the front office is already looking at a QB in the first round of the 2012 draft.

I guess I should start studying up on the top college signal callers...

You nailed it.

The BBT seems to be conceding that this is a rebuilding year by refusing to spend money on defensive starters at MLB and DT.

But on the other hand, they're saying that they're trying to win games by starting a journeyman who isn't going to be here next season while they have a young player who is just as productive waiting in the wings and needing experience to grow.

This thing is a mess.

Yep. That's been my thoughts as well. They seem to be systematically attempting to diminish Tebow in the eyes of the fans (and it seems to be working with some). I really can't come to any other conclusion.

I mean two ****ing pass attempts in the second game? Seriously?
