Default Source: Brady Quinn gets 1st team snaps in practice

Earlier this week, Rodney Harrison questioned my sanity and/or sobriety when I suggested, both in our weekly One-on-One segment and on NBC SportsTalk, that the Broncos should get quarterback Brady Quinn ready to play, in the event that starter Tim Tebow continues to play like he has played in the last three games he has played.

Apparently, Rodney also needs to question the sanity and/or sobriety of Broncos coach John Fox and/or Broncos V.P. of football operations John Elway. Per a league source, Quinn has been getting roughly half the first-team reps in practice this week.

It’s unknown whether Quinn actually will play on Sunday against Pittsburgh, either as a replacement for Tebow (if he fails to “pull the trigger”) or an unexpected change-of-pace insertion. Either way, the use of Quinn could throw a wrench into the Steelers’ Tebow-specific game plan.

Funny, I remember a similar response from many here a few days ago when I mentioned the idea of the Broncos playing Quinn.


Hmmm...

Interesting...I was one of the posters who doubted you, FanSince72! Quinn hasn't thrown a pass in an actual game this season. Hopefully it'll be entertaining for Steelers fans everywhere to see Quinn throw 3 picks to the Steelers secondary -- one each to Troy, Gay, and even Ike.

2 guys thinking it would be risky and one bronco fan whining isn't exactly a "similar response from many here" You sound like you have a lot in common with florio...

Found this article from a Denver newspaper:

http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_...%3A+Broncos%29

The Broncos' game plan against the Pittsburgh Steelers​ is set.

Tim Tebow will be their quarterback.

There has been speculation this week that after Tebow's back-to-back poor performances the past two games against the Buffalo Bills​ and Kansas City Chiefs​ — in which he committed six turnovers while posting a combined 27 .0 passer rating — Broncos coach John Fox might call on veteran backup Brady Quinn during the team's playoff game Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

That speculation was fanned Friday when Pro Football Talk.com, citing an NFL source, reported Quinn "had been getting roughly half the first-team reps in practice this week."

Three Broncos team sources, however, said Quinn has not received any more practice reps than usual — which isn't many.

"The backup quarterback always gets reps," said a team source. ""It's no different this week. It's normal for the backup quarterback to get a few reps."

Quinn received zero reps — zero — during the first team's pivotal game-plan installation Wednesday, according to a team source. He took two first-team reps Friday — which isn't unusual.

so when tebow is sent to the lockers due to a season ending, crushing blow, it was all according to plan to thwart us?

BRILLIANT! did they get that idea from arians?

Doesn't really matter to that much; we'll be prepared for Tebow, whether he comes out as good Tebow or bad Tebow, and Quinn hasn't played in like 2 years cause he sucks and hasn't even practiced with the first team until now.

Maybe the Denver OC is a distant relative of Arians. "It's the playoffs and our starting QB isn't playing well. Quick, put in the worst QB in the league. Maybe the Steelers will fall down laughing and we'll win.".

Somehow I don't think Lebeau is losing sleep over the idea of Tebow leaving the game and Brady Quinn (with a 5 year career QB rating of 66 and 52% completion percentage) walks on the field. It might have been a concern if the Broncos still had Orton. At least that guy can play QB in the NFL.

Yep - not exactly the equivalent of Steve Young coming in if Joe Montana was having a bad day or got hurt - in addition to needing to shut up the Tebow acolytes, consider the possibility Quinn continued to sit after Kyle Orton flamed out based on Quinn's own shortcomings
