Default QB Depth Chart rumors (locker room info)

Couple of quick tidbits for the folks that don't get local sports radio - even though it's small news I thought it was worth posting here vs getting lost in some other cluster **** of a thread.

Vic and Gary in the morning - 102.3 the ticket

Talking about the depth chart controversy that has everyone's panties in a wad. Had an interview with Brady Quinn, and said that THE PLAYERS ALL KNOW who the number two and number three qb's are. Not figuratively, either. Gary asked him the question again, and Quinn told him that he, Orton, and Tebow know exactly what the QB order is. Said that Fox listed it like he did for purposes of competitive advantage, but that the players all know the "officially unofficial" (my words not his) depth chart...and were going to keep it in house (his words not mine).


The other little part that I thought was interesting, was that Gary had talked about the fact that he'd sat down with McD after he was fired, and McD told him to ask him ANYTHING he wanted regarding his tenure with the Broncos. The only thing that was off limits (due to contractual ramifications) was the settlement amount reached between he and the team. Gary didn't go into TOO many specifics, but did say that McD was unfairly blamed for a lot of the draft woes...specifically saying that he didn't act alone for any of it, but was the scapegoat. He also said that more information always comes out during the CBS4 coverage, but it's kind of nonchalant and you have to be paying attention.


ANYWHO, the main thing, is that there is an official depth chart at the QB position, but Fox didn't release it for the simple reason that he feels it gives us a competitive advantage.

Hooray for boobies.

I don't either, and Gary didn't sound like he gleaned anything from Quinn during the interview (which is going to be available this weekend at some point)

Whose the 2 & 3 QB? I dunno, does it really matter? I think McD was the scapegoat. Who gives a new HC 1.5 seasons to do his work? Anyway, thanks for the info titman

So are they just waiting for Orton to go down or are they planning on playing multiple QBs a game? It isn't like bringing Tebow in for red zone packages would be something new...

There is no competitive advantage. We know why. It would be a complete cluster**** in the media no matter what the order was.

Fox knows the new CBA like Donovan McNabb knows the overtime rules.

It's a competitive advantage because other teams now have to game plan for Orton as the #1 and then a big question mark for the #2. It's not much of an advantage but still, it's an advantage that will help if Orton gets injured.

Also, good to see that Xanders finally gets some blow back in his role in that ****ing disaster the past two years. Amazing he's still at work.

I'd guess that they figure teams will have some basic game planning for Teebs if he's the #2, whereas with Quinn they'd just focus on Orton, knowing that Orton and Quinn offer similar skill sets.

The only real "competitive advantage" to be gained is if the opponent actually does just shrug their shoulders and ignore our 6'3", 245 pound, freakishly athletic backup QB and then we take advantage of it by having special packages that gets Tebow into the game. Even then the jig would be up after the first time we roll it out.

Seems very dubious to me.

But with the new CBA, there's nothing to stop the Broncos from telling the team that one is the #2 and the other is the #3 and then telling the public and the opponent the opposite. There is literally no advantage to staying silent.

I'm VERY confident teams will have a basic game plan for Tebow regardless of 2 or 3 because it's likely he'll get used 5-10x in a wildcat.

This whole thing is silly, but completely insignificant imo, so whatever.

I doubt defensive coordinators spend a lot of time game-planning for the backup QB....

I agree, but what little time they do spend on it is now just that much more of an issue.

Yep, calling bull****. The buck stopped with him, period.

Time to man up and admit you failed as a head coach/head of football operations.

I didn't take that as him denying it at all.

The buck stopped and still does with Pat Bowlen. He's the one who fired his personal friend because he had too much autonomous power, hired a very young but very successful HC, and then proceeded to tear the training wheels off and shove him down the steepest hill in town.

I like how so many people are now drinking the kool-aid that McDaniels is gone. Ignoring that Ellis is still here, Xanders is still here, we once again ignored the DL in the draft, shat our pants in FA, and watched other teams work the waiver wire while we got a three year vet OT who couldn't break in with the Steelers rag tag OL the last couple years.

Looks like we didn't **** up the #2 overall pick. I'd hope we aren't so wildly inept that we can't find a good player with the 2nd overall selection in the draft. Still see little reason to think this organization has any real clue what they're doing.

My guess is that Orton and Quinn are actually #2 and #3 and the whole QB depth chart is a sham. The competitive advantage comes from starting Tebow. Fingers crossed.

McDaniels wasn't given enough time to turn this franchise around! And Elway's scapegoating him for going 4-12!!

Its a 'Marketing advantage' to not name Tim #3 if that is where he really is... They calculated a drop in #15 Jersey sales if he is publicly at the bottom of the depth chart, not to mention the large number of Tebow fans who would be irrate ... They are just trying to be politically correct with this little dance.
