(Doug Pensinger/Getty Images) The decision has been made: Brady Quinn will start at quarterback for the Kansas City when the Chiefs host the Broncos this weekend. “I like his leadership qualities,” Chiefs Head Coach Romeo Crennel told DenverBroncos.com. “He has experience with a couple different teams and he’s seen a couple different things. I think that will bode well for him.” Quinn has a unique history with the Broncos.  His first career start came against the Broncos in 2008, when Jay Cutler led the Broncos to a 34-30 win over the Browns in Cleveland. A year later, Quinn faced the Broncos again, losing 27-6 in Denver.  During the loss, Quinn was sacked four times by Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil. The next offseason, Quinn was traded to the Broncos to compete with Kyle Orton to win the Broncos’ starting gig.  Quinn ultimately lost the job to Orton and eventually backed up Tim Tebow through the 2011 season.  Through two seasons in Denver, Quinn never played a down. “I haven’t had as many opportunities in six seasons as some guys get in one season.  Any opportunity for me to play is good.  I’m always learning, always trying to get better,” said Quinn. One year removed from leaving Denver, Quinn is preparing for his third career start against the Broncos.  Denver’s defense, led by pass rushers Von Miller and Dumervil, will be looking to make Quinn 0-3 against his former teammates.
