Apples to Apples?

There is a major curiosity developing re both practice reps and preseason snaps for Brady Quinn and Tebow.  Can anyone tell me if there is ANY sense of equality regarding how many minutes/reps each of our QBs had with the 1st line in front of them?  With a little bit of thought I have to wonder the same for our various running backs.  If we're talking a fair comparison it seems to be a more than valid question considering how poorly our 2nd O-line played last night.  I mean, things like pocket time and how big the pocket space to work in is mean one hell of a lot in terms of allowing a progression of reads that many are saying Tebow doesn't do.  Quinn didn't look like he had much time for his progressions either and he looked like hell in this last game.  Maybe our 2nd and 3rd string running backs are better than their stats considering SOMEONE has to run block in order for a back to have SOMETHING to run through, like a reasonable hole.

 

I may be missing something in preseason having not attended camp nor had access to any kind of comprehensive video coverage.  Some days ago I stated something like this "The one area of concern I have with Fox is his statement that every player would get a chance to compete.  If one QB is playing with horses and the other pigs there is no equality.  Can you image what Orton would have looked like, with his lack of mobility, if the majority of his reps were behind the 2nd unit?  I wonder how much better Quinn and Tebow might have looked if they had Orton's 1st team reps, both in practice and the preseason.  All I can say is we have a HUGE depth problem that supersedes any one position battle.  Man, we had BETTER stay healthy is all I can say!
