Quinn hopes to improve off Broncos debut

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Brady Quinn was brought into Denver to push incumbent Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton for the starting job.

Instead, he's fighting off rookie Tim Tebow for the backup role.

Quinn, who was acquired from Cleveland in the offseason, looked confused at times in coach Josh McDaniels' complicated system during the preseason opener Sunday night at Cincinnati.

It's just one performance, behind a makeshift offensive line and with a hodgepodge of receivers he's still getting to know.

But the rushed throws, misreads and interception returned for a 24-yard touchdown weren't exactly the kind of early impressions he wanted to make.

Watching the replay for a second time in the film room certainly wasn't any better.
