Broncos Fans Launch Start Tim Tebow Petition ‘Unleash the Tebow’

They say the most popular sports figure in a city is often the backup quarterback. That’s even more the case when your second string QB is Tim Tebow, a first-round pick out of Florida who was one of the most popular college players of all time.

Tebow has served as the backup quarterback for the Broncos but he’s only attempted one pass all season. Kyle Orton has started all 13 of Denver’s games, completing 58% of his passes for 3,653 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions. The numbers look pretty but the team’s win-loss total doesn’t; Denver is 3-10 and has lost three in a row. They’ve already fired their coach and the season is already over so the fans are demanding a change.

As I found out from Josina Anderson, fans have launched an “Unleash the Tebow” petition to persuade the Broncos to start Tim Tebow at quarterback. Here’s the stated objective of the petition:

This is a petition to show the Denver Broncos front office and coaching staff that the fans want to see Tim Tebow behind center for the rest of the season. What does the team have to lose by finding out what it’s got in its first-round quarterback? The Broncos have been embarrassed enough this season, it can’t get any worse. This move would excite the fan base, as well as give future Head Coach candidates a look at their possible starting QB next year. And if the Broncos have no interest in keeping Tebow, they should find a way to let him produce the best film he can for other teams.

It was only a matter of time before a major fan movement was launched, but how will the Broncos’ front office respond? It’s not as if the offense has been dreadful, but they haven’t been consistent enough to win many games. As for the part in the petition stating they should give Tebow a chance to produce the best film possible? Maybe that’s the reason they don’t want him starting. Scary thought.
