Quinn Ready to Move to #2 Past Tebow on the Depth Charts?

First John Fox put Kyle Orton right back in as the teams starting QB when he didn’t get traded to the Dolphins. Now is Brady Quinn moving up the charts ahead of the Broncos golden-boy – Tim Tebow?

There’s been a lot of talk about how poorly Tebow has been looking during camp, and how the pressure of a QB competition may have gotten to him. Now, as you read below from Pro Football Talk, Quinn is taking charge of the #2 QB spot.

After a lackluster performance in the team’s scrimmage over the weekend, Tebow mostly watched Quinn get the majority of reps with the No. 2 offense on Monday, according to Josina Anderson of FOX31 and the Denver Post.

Tebow is No. 2 on the depth chart, but the Broncos brass may want to see how Quinn looks against better competition. He had a strong scrimmage against the No. 3 defense on Saturday.

Quinn was acquired in a trade with the Browns before last season, and he really hasn’t gotten much of a shot. All along, he’s said he has felt like he’s in the mix to be one of the top QB’s on the team. If he moves ahead of Tebow for the #2 spot, things will become even more interesting this summer at Broncos camp.

    I mean no disrepect and don’t want to denegrate Tebows potential, but it appears that Orton and Quinn are pretty wired into what the Bronco’s want from them and Tebow needs to learn a great deal of discipline to make a consistent contribution. He is a gamebreaker, but right now he appears to be an unpredictable loose cannon when it comes time to methidically apply his skills. It would seem most practical to trade him or renegotiate his high salary and put him in a place of less over-exposure and afford him time to develope under expert tuteledge. I think he will be a great, ala Elway, but this will take time and the current QB leaders have what it takes for now and are still young enough to be ‘franchise’ level QBs. This is a dilemna I wouldn’t wish on any team.

    Quinn…mmmppffff, really? Does anyone remotely remember the ‘Mighty Quinn’ attempting to play in a real game last year and what happened…anyone? Do you really want me to refresh your memory? I didn’t think so.

    It is hard to believe that the team would try to get a 2 round pick for Orton. In a market when Kevin Kolb was traded for a cornerback and a 2 rounder, and where Matt Cassel was traded, with Mike Vrabel, for a 2 round pick as well. Kolb and Cassel are better quarterbacks than Orton hands down, and they were worth the pick. Orton though is not as polished of a quarterback, and the Broncos should have got rid of him when his value was the highest.
