How far is Tim Tebow from being the Denver Broncos’ starting quarterback?
In a move that has been brewing for days, the Broncos have made Quinn the No.2 quarterback behind Orton until further notice.
Quinn and Tebow have been sharing second-string duties for some time after Tebow spent all of last season as the backup.
Quinn has shown improvement this summer while it appears Tebow has regressed. Just a month ago, it appeared Denver was going to give Tebow (who played in the final three games of last season) an opportunity to start, but a trade of Orton to Miami fell through. So has Tebow’s opportunity.
If this pecking order holds, it would be a stunning admission by the team that it simply doesn’t believe in Tebow.
This move was made shortly before the first home game of the John Elway-John Fox era. Give the new Denver brass credit as they seem to be more concerned with winning than appeasing fans.
