It was thought at most points of the summer that somehow, someway, Tim Tebow would end up as the starting QB for the Broncos.
Then Kyle Orton didn’t get moved to the Dolphins, and then Tebow started quickly to fall out of favor with the upper management with the Broncos.
Which leads to today’s news about the QB race in Denver, which shouldn’t be all that shocking considering how fast Tebow has been going backwards in the eyes of those inside the team.
The news is that Brady Quinn is now clearly the backup to Orton, leaving Tebow to be the number three QB for Denver. More than in any workout during training camp and preseason, it was clear that Quinn was working exclusively with the number two offense at the Broncos’ workout Monday.
Although Orton was the number one QB, and Quinn the two QB, the quarterbacks who took most of the snaps Monday were Tebow? and Adam Weber.
Quinn didn’t play at all in Saturday’s preseason game and will likely see little action in Thursday night’s preseason finale in Arizona.
Head coach John Fox knows what he has in Quinn. Against the Cardinals, it’s possible Quinn will play one or two series, and then Tebow would play into the third quarter with Weber, an undrafted rookie from Minnesota, mopping up. Or Tebow could start and play about two and a half quarters with Weber finishing up.
While Quinn is clearly ahead of Tebow in the race for being Orton’s backup, it would not be surprising to see Tebow used in some goal-line situations during the regular season.
