Look on the bright side guys, Tebow will rape the other team's third string.

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.

Quinn has looked good. Might as well give him a chance.

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.

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 man.

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.

Good to see. I hope if he continues to look as good as he has, Quinn gets a shot at the starting job.

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.
