Weber hoping to get his shot Thursday

The raw, shaggy-haired Denver Broncos quarterback with Madison Avenue good looks and an impressive college resume that includes 72 touchdown passes realizes he has absolutely no shot now of unseating Kyle Orton or even Brady Quinn.

No, not Tim Tebow.

Adam Weber.

The undrafted free agent from the University of Minnesota also figures he hasn't a chance of surpassing Tebow anytime soon. After all, he's still waiting to throw his first pass as a pro.

That may or may not come Thursday night at Arizona in the preseason finale.

The Broncos love what they've seen from Weber in his scant opportunities in practice so far. But the best way to ensure they can slip him through waivers and onto their practice squad is not to expose him against the Cardinals.
