Default brady quinn likely to be inactive this year

mcdaniels said he doesnt want 3 QBs active because it puts you behind in other positions, and tebow will likely be active for situational/goal line packages. should be interesting.


Brady Quinn-QB- Broncos Jun. 11 - 7:01 pm et


Coach Josh McDaniels is leaning toward keeping only two quarterbacks active on game days this season.
Activating a third QB would "put us behind the eight ball at other spots," explained McDaniels. The Broncos will want Tim Tebow active for situational work, so Brady Quinn will likely be the odd man out.

We'll really be screwed now if Orton goes out with another ankle injury. Stupid.
They should have made Quinn the starter. We know what Orton can do.

I am guessing Quinn might be named the emergency QB.

Right. We know Orton can be a very competent starter with things working well around him. We also know he has limitations, which is why we went out and acquired a back-up like Quinn... and a guy we're grooming to start. (Tebow.)

That said, it's McDaniels, folks. This guy isn't saying things like this on accident. Every sentence he delivers to the media and players has a point.
Quinn is being put on notice that he's got to win this job. Orton was put on notice when we acquired 2 QBs.

I think everyone needs to stop attempting to make definitive statements about the QB spot right now. We've got a camp and pre-season to get through. A whole lot could happen...

This isn't really anything new. If I remember correctly, that's how we did it last year. Brandstater was listed as emergency QB most if not all of the weeks.

Well I'd say that they're going to have the QB competition in training camp before they declare which QB will be inactive.

Why wouldn't they just dress all three and have one as the emergency QB?

How, exactly, would the situation be different if Quinn were the starter and got hurt and Orton is inactive?

So basically Brady Quinn = Brandstater

Brady Quinn is about 4M USD of payroll a year, am I right?

A 4M emergency quarterback. Genius!

Really thinking about it, this does make sense. They'd dress all three. By not making Tebow the emergency QB, he can get some playing time here and their at QB, and they can use him for special packages, if that's what they have planned for him this year. So lets say if Orton is the starter and stinks up the joint, they can't replace him with Quinn until the next game (or vice versa if Quinn wins the starting job).

basically this. if they want tebow on the field, they either keep 3 QBs active, or they move him to "2nd" string and make quinn inactive, the 2nd one makes more sense.

Actually they wouldn't be screwed as the QB position has the emergency inactive rule. So it Orton got hurt Brady could come in. If its before the 4th quarter then both Orton and Tebow can no longer come back into the game.

My guess is depending on the week Tebow and Quinn/Orton will be inactive dictated by game planning for that week.

Know what happens when you Assume? You post stuff like this and are wrong.

Genius!

In reality being inactive would avoid any chance of reaching multi-millions

Or... Orton inactive.

Just making sure you realize that there is the potential of Orton not being named the starting QB coming out of training camp.

to be honest i dont think there is a chance of that. they say there is, but at the end of the day, he is the best QB in the system right now, and i dont think its taht close.

Let me get this straight. We traded a RB/FB that has made TDs, for a guy that will literally ride the pine?

Not likely, but definitely possible... and McDaniel's words are nothing more than a method to instill a sense of urgency into both players.

I actually liked this trade, given that Quinn was rated higher than eithe Orton or Tebow coming out, and Hillis was in the doghouse, but hitching his balls to Tebow this early is odd, considering Orton is a free agent sometime soon.

Just ODD to put Quinn in the doghouse just to get rid of Hillis and lose 2 picks.

This is going to be a dreadfull season against ANY quality.

The list of Hillis's accomplishments is long and distinguished.

Yeah? Well so's my Johnson.

For what ever that's what you want, but as of right now we don't really know if that's the case. Quinn may beat Orton out for the starting job. If there was no chance of Quinn replacing Orton, then he wouldn't have been brought in in the first place.

If Orton wins the job I wouldn't have a negative reaction when it comes to the Orton/Quinn competition because that would have meant that he was simply better than Quinn. But I wonder, what would your reaction be if Quinn was named the starter going into week one?

I think this story is wrong. If someone is going to be inactive it's Tebow. In any important game they will need a backup that has played. Tebow will be useless this year.

Quinn will have a hard time beating out Orton...b/c Orton is comfortable with the system and Quinn is still learning it. Lucky for Orton.

However, this gig won't be won until the pre season games are played. Quinn will get his shot with the ones at some point and depending on how those two look in the games that don't count will determine who starts. I'm rooting for Quinn.

Tebow, needs to sit and wait. Play him some in the Wild Horses to energize the fan base and let him learn how to be a QB in the NFL before they plug him in.
