Brady Quinn leapfrogs Tim Tebow
More than an hour before kickoff, Elway tweeted: "Looking forward to seeing our QBs tonight. Tim went in after Kyle last week, and Brady will go second tonight. All competing."
The order is not a surprise. Quinn got most of the second-team work during practice this week, and this gives them comparable data when making a final decision.
Quinn didn't play a single snap during the regular season in 2010, when Tebow was usually the No. 2 quarterback so he could spell Orton occasionally and run special plays designed to capitalize on his running abilities.
