Is Tebow on his way to being the Broncos #2 QB?

The Denver Post reports that it looks more and more that Tim Tebow is going to be the number two QB, which leaves Brady Quinn in a state of “what now?”:

Is rookie Tim Tebow officially the No. 2 quarterback? The Broncos closed practice to the media Tuesday before engaging in team drills, so it won’t be known until early in their preseason game Thursday night at Minnesota whom coach Josh McDaniels prefers as his backup quarterback. Starting quarterback Kyle Orton is expected to play one or two series Thursday, if Tebow replaces Orton first, as he did during the second half Sunday against Pittsburgh, his promotion to the No. 2 slot will be all but official. Should former first-round draft pick Brady Quinn be the first sub in, Tebow may still be the game-day backup so he can be used in short-yardage and goal-line situations. But the competition for the true backup position may be on. “We’re going to let them compete today and in Minnesota,” McDaniels said. “Both players have done some good things, both players have turned the ball over, both players have been able to function in the two-minute offense and I think that both players have plenty of room to improve. “From that standpoint, I think this game will probably help us determine kind of where we see everything.”
