As a side note, this is not the first discussion about Quinn that the Broncos have had this offseason. Mr. Quinn might have played himself back into a starter, even if the Broncos are set with Orton.

If they are serious about Tebow then Quinn isn't a good guy to be a back up or mentor. It would be better to have someone else young like Tebow and someone elder that could mentor him more and be a solid backup. People are way overrating Quinn anyway

I agree with this.

If we decide to trade Orton, than fine. He's gone at the end of the year anyhow. Otherwise I'd rather keep all 3.

If Orton goes down Quinn could turn out to be the long term solution.

I also agree that Tebow will see the field in special packages. This is especially possible with the new 3rd QB rules.

Keeping both Quinn and Orton seems silly given both are FAs after the season (IIRC). If the coaching staff likes one better than the other, it makes the decision easier. Trading Quinn would allow them to keep Tebow on the bench.

Trading Orton and then starting Quinn would only make the QB controversy worse.

You'd think that the Colts would be able to develop a reasonably competent backup when the guy is watching Manning up close and personal every day. Yet they all seem to suck immensely.

Quinn would be a good pickup for them, and unless we're planning on giving him an extension or think he can start this year at some we should probably get something for him while we can.

Trading Quinn is a great idea and the front office should pull the trigger. It puts us back into a clear #1, #2, #3 QB hierarchy and well all know that Quinn will never be a top shelf QB. We don't want him taking development reps away from Tebow or the 3rd string developmental QB.

Nice try. That turd won't float regardless of the validity, simply because it's you saying it. If it was someone else it wouldn't float either, but for different reasons. It's both too dramatic, and not dramatic enough at the same time. If I sort through enough muck around here I can still find things to learn from. Mainly though, it's good relief if I'm grinding my teeth too much, as my jaw drops and brings satisfying relief to the tension.

HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay posted on his Twitter account that he was in Brett Favre's hometown, but the quarterback's agent says he has not heard of any interest from the Colts.

The 41-year-old Favre retired in the offseason after a 20-year career and lives in Hattiesburg. Irsay sent a tweet on Sunday saying "Brad, I'm in Hattiesburg ... is it right or left at the Firechief?"

Last Colts QB To Start Not Named Peyton

Harbaugh Peyton Manning has started every regular-season (208) and postseason (19) game for the Colts since being drafted in 1998. The last quarterback not named Peyton Manning to start a regular-season game for the Colts was current 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh (a 39-28 loss at Minnesota on Dec. 21, 1997).

powered by ESPN Stats and Info

Favre's longtime agent Bus Cook said he hadn't spoken with the quarterback in a few days, but the "last time I saw him he was on his tractor mowing the back forty."

Through a spokesman, Colts' general manager Chris Polian declined comment on Irsay's tweet.

Though Favre has repeatedly said he's retired during the offseason, any Colts' interest would make some sense. Peyton Manning had neck surgery in May and hasn't played in the preseason, casting doubt on his 227 consecutive games streak.

That's a scary proposition for the Colts, who have little experience behind him.

"I certainly want to be out there, and it's hard to keep track of the hours I've spent in rehab," Manning said on Saturday. "I was short-changed a little bit by the lockout and I'm going to need every bit of the next two weeks, and then I can give you more of an update with where I am."

Curtis Painter has started both preseason games, completing 8-of-16 passes for 95 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. In Friday night's 16-3 loss to Washington, Painter managed only one first down and couldn't get the offense past its 29 despite playing the entire first half.

He hasn't played in a regular season game since 2009.

The only other quarterbacks on the roster are Dan Orlovsky, who has played in 13 games in six NFL seasons, and undrafted rookie Mike Hartline.

AFC South blog

Kuharsky ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky writes about all things AFC South in his division blog.

Blog network: NFL Nation

On Saturday, Irsay acknowledged on his Twitter feed that the Colts might not have their four-time MVP quarterback at the start of the season. Manning signed a five-year, $90 million contract in July after the 4-month lockout ended.

Favre is a three-time MVP and has thrown for more than 71,000 yards and 500 touchdowns, winning a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers along the way. But the famous gunslinger began to show some serious wear in 2010 with the Minnesota Vikings, throwing for 2,509 yards, 11 touchdowns and 19 interceptions in an injury plagued season.

He also was hounded with allegations that he sent lewd photos and messages to a game-day hostess when both worked for the Jets in 2008, and was fined $50,000 by the NFL for failing to cooperate with the investigation.

But with Favre, anything seems possible. He retired with the Packers in 2008 and New York Jets in 2009 before deciding on a return. Favre has kept a low profile during the offseason, saying at a football camp at the University of Southern Mississippi that he wasn't sure of his future plans, though he insisted he was done playing football.

I think they had a pretty good idea of what they had in Quinn long before preseason or training camp. We have had him for a full season.

What is moe likely thy shopped Orton because the like Quinn

They shopped Orton because they thought Tebow would be ready to start but after seeing him a couple of days in training camp realized he wasn't ready.

MacGruder

That's true.. they probably thought that Quinn and Tebow were both good enough to hold down the fort worst comes to worst.

McCoy might have had a good read on Quinn too.. and that was why they knew he would be ready even if Tebow was rusty.

But also.. one thing I keep forgetting.. how might Tebow be different if the Broncos were letting him play his game?

Things could be so much different. Tebow could be a totally different player.. but maybe when the Orton thing fell through they decided to slow Tebow's development a bit and try to improve his weak areas. I wonder if they have a certain time they might let the reigns out.. say as they get closer to the Bye to prepare for Orton tanking? And with Quinn playing so well(?) Maybe that extends Tebow's development even more.

How the hell can you say you keep forgetting this? You've beat that drum harder than a red-headed step child.

I have said that about games.. but I forget that's true of practice as well because we have had it beat in our heads so much that Tebow looked really bad in practice.

My stance has been that Tebow doesn't look bad in practice.. it's Orton that is overrated in practice and will dramatically decrease his performance in real games where he is getting hit and go even lower than Tebow looks in practice.

But not only is it that.. but they are probably telling him not to run even in practice which is why he looks so bad there too. And he is doing that in the preseason games as well.

So if you change ALL of that.. and let Tebow play his game throughout things could be completely different. The Tebow hype train would probably be going full steam.

If Orton had been traded that might be how things would be going. But instead they put Tebow in a position where he was intentionally humbled and forced to work on aspects of his game.

But I am just trying to make sense of these crazy moves by the BBT - Broncos Brain Trust.

Mac, I just don't know what to say. I just can't believe the lengths you will go to in order to make things up to make some sort of sense out of your obsession with Tebow. You are to the point that even facts won't sway your opinion. I'm baffled. Unless this is just a ruse, and then you got me.

MacGruder
08-22-2011, 03:48 AM
What is stranger... To be obsessed with a terrible team because of laundry or geography? Or to be obsessed with a story like this?

Steve Young just called Tebow "Greatness we are watching"
He basically all but guaranteed Tebow will be great, win a lot of games, and will change the position as we know it. When asked about Tebow his first response was "Tim Tebow is greatness" and if someone builds on the offense we are running with him he would be the only guy to run this "new" scheme and thus become great with his unique skill set whether is running or passing the bowl.

Talk about baffling...

Yes, it is baffling to be obsessed over a quote from ONE ****ING GUY (who to my knowledge has never worked in player evaluation and probably really wants Tebow to succeed given that Young had a similar style of play and is also a very vocal religious figure) who thinks that Tebow is going to be awesome.

I really do hope you are just a fake account that Baja has created for trolling, otherwise you might just be the worst poster this forum has ever seen.

to make the tebowites happy, they should trade BOTH quinn and orton!

Mac, I just don't know what to say. I just can't believe the lengths you will go to in order to make things up to make some sort of sense out of your obsession with Tebow. You are to the point that even facts won't sway your opinion. I'm baffled. Unless this is just a ruse, and then you got me.

Just stop trying to understand and use the ignore button, you'll be better for it.

Why is it nobody is interested in Orton.
He's been in the trading block for over a year now, and nobody wants the guy... Ha! ROFL!

There are nine million reasons why interest is minimal, and then there is his very limited ability.

Seems to be the only way Tebow will be the "best QB on the roster."

at this point I think we are much better off trading Orton than trading Quinn. We all pretty much know what Orton's ceiling is while Quinn seems to be getting better rapidly. How awful would it be to trade Quinn away if he ends up being far and away better than both Tebow and Orton in the end. I think we trade Orton and do a true QB competition between Tebow and Quinn both getting snaps with the 1's instead of behind our garbage 2nd and 3rd string O-line

No, I think we'd rather over pay some washed up, injury prone sack of meat in free agency. That's where we find value at DT. Draft a DT? You have a lot to learn about how this team works.

LOL at most of you:

-You don't know Orton's "ceiling", if you did...you'd be drawing a paycheck for it.
-Quinn has improved to the point that he's worth keeping.
-Tim Tebow has no trade value at this time. We drafted him with a 1st and we would be hard pressed to get a 3rd or 4th for him.

So we might as well ride with 3 and stop worrying about the QB situation. We're in good shape.

We should bang Orton or Quinn off to Cincy since the Dalton project is going slower than they hoped. I guarantee we'd have seen KO's best years if he gets shipped to ****tsinatti. Maybe Quinn would rather go since it would be a "homecoming" of sorts...well....second homecoming anyway.

Honestly, I'm shocked Seattle hasn't called about one of these guys. They might not win a game with what they got.

Watching him over the last year or two it's pretty easy to see Orton's ceiling. He's an accurate qb with an average nfl arm with almost no mobility. He is great until the pocket begins to break down even a little bit then rather than seeking to create he either takes the phantom sack or throws it immediately to his check-down. He is definitely a serviceable nfl qb, but he's not a game changer.

Quinn and Tebow may both currently be more raw at the position but they have an innate skillset with the potential to greatly exceed what Orton could do. I'm not saying Orton sucks or anything, he's currently the best qb we have because he is much more polished, he does however not have even close to the potential that Quinn and Tebow have and thus would be the qb I would choose to trade first of the three of them.

Teams seem more afraid they make a bad trade. Broncos won't to look smart when they trade a QB. They want to get something for him so people won't look at Elway and Xanadars as people to take advantage of.

So basically teams offering low picks is not going to get it down. None of them want to offer a 3rd or better for Quinn even though QBs have a lot of value. Too bad it would be nice to move a QB for something as next yr no way we sign and keep all 3 of them.

I wouldn't be suprised if the Colts offer a 3rd for Quinn, they seem pretty resigned to the fact that Manning is out indefinitely and that without him, the season is hopeless.

They probably just wanted to book you for a fishing trip. Shanny must've given the area a good recommendation.

I think it's more of a case we are content on keeping all three for now. A trade before the deadline will net more treasure because the trading partner will be more desperate due to some injury to their QB. It also gives the new staff time to evaluate all three and see exactly what they have.

I'd think a five at best, but I'd take it in a heartbeat. They can sign Delhomme and keep him inactive in case Orton goes down early. If Tebow isn't in the starting lineup by week ten, either Den is a LOT better than I think they are or Tebow just can't find his way on the field if he has to play under center and we need to draft a qb.
