Taking a look at the limited sample of preseason statistics it is clear that Tim Tebow has had the edge over Brady Quinn. Tonight Quinn has a lot of ground to make up to show Denver that he is the number two QB. Tebow has been able to lead his team to touchdowns Quinn has lead his team to field goals. Quinn has to lead a touchdown drive to be second on the depth chart behind Orton.
Below are the numbers of both QBs in the Preseason Weeks 1-3
|Percentage of comps over 10 yards||53%||29%|
|Percentage of comps under 6 yards||15%||47%|
|Yards per game||89||61|
|3 & Outs||2||2|
|Drives to Score||2.66||3.25|
|Points per drive||2.12||0.92|
Tebow has not only shown better numbers, but also more confidence. Quinn has been very indecisive with his throws. He has also been up and down on his accuracy. I think Tim wins out the second string spot unless Quinn does a 180 in the upcoming game and leads a couple of drives that end in touchdowns.
