At WR, for instance. Keyshawn Martin gets snaps at both the Y & the Z position. If something were to happen to either Andre or DeAndre, Keyshawn becomes a starter. With that in mind, Keyshawn takes first team snaps during practice. Andre & DeAndre gets most of them. Keyshawn probably gets as much, since he is preparing for two positions.

In the case of our QB..... even before our game week 1, game, our #1 & #2 QBs split snaps. Schaub got most of them, Tj got quiet a few. Case led the scout team. None of the snaps he took prepared him for coming into a regular season game. That makes sense, since he wasn't expected to see any part of a regular season game.

Now, the fate of our starting QB is in question. We don't know if he's going to be able to play. In the event that he can't start the game & something prevents Tj from finishing the game, we need to be prepared to send someone out there & "play" QB. Since Keenum is the only other QB on our roster, he gets the nod.

Kubiak said he's got to prepare both of his young QBs for Sunday's game. We assumed that meant Case may get an opportunity to start. It's possible (far fetched, I know) that he meant he's got to prepare Tj to start & Case to be a back up.

Crazy idea, I know... but stranger things have happened.
Here's how I interpreted the bolded part. Kubiak is going to start Yates. he has experience, and is already the #2. The reason he is preparing both QB's equally is because Yates is going to have an extremely short leash. If he plays as poorly as he did last week, Kubiak will not hesitate to throw Keenum in there, so he needs to have both of them ready to go.
