Broncos Fans Plan to Buy Billboards Calling for Team to Start Tim Tebow

There aren’t many fans in the NFL more passionate than Broncos fans. There aren’t many fans in sports more fervent than Tim Tebow fans. When you combine the two, the result is quite the monster.

During Monday night’s loss to the Raiders, some fans began chanting for Tim Tebow to enter the game in place of starting quarterback Kyle Orton. Screaming Tebow’s name during games is not enough for some fans. A group of fans decided to kick their efforts up a notch by attempting to purchase pro-Tebow billboards.

One fan and seven of his buddies were saving up money to travel to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis. Instead, they’ve decided to apply the money towards purchasing billboards in Denver calling for the team to start Tebow at quarterback.

“We believe in Coach Fox, we’re just tired of Kyle Orton,” one of the fans leading the effort told The Denver Post. “We were sitting around after Fox said he didn’t hear the chants for Tebow, and we figured if he’s deaf, we hope he’s not blind.”

The billboards would cost around $10,000 and the fan says he’s already heard from other people who want to chip in.

Before they spend their money on this venture, we should caution them that billboards don’t always work. Some Bears fans wanted the coaching staff fired two years ago. Guess what? Lovie Smith is still there. And the last time Denver fans put up a billboard their prayers were not answered. From what I can tell, the only billboard that seemed to work recently was this one.

You’re wasting your money if you do this, guys. All you’re doing is getting some pub — a few signs are not going to change John Fox’s mind.

    Are Denver sports fans the most ignorant sports fans in the country?  Apparently so.

    Because Jon Fox would start the #3 QB over Brady Quinn, the #2.

    I think it is NFL fans in general. At least the loudest ones throw common sense and reasonableness out the door.

    The game Monday night was ugly.  It was not really Orton’s fault (except for the drop), Denver is just not a good team.  But, Tebow might make it more fun to watch, even if they don’t win any more games.
