A group of Broncos fans have told the USA Today they plan to purchase a few billboards in the Denver area calling for the team to bench starting quarterback Kyle Orton and play backup Tim Tebow instead.
"We believe in coach John Fox. We're just tired of Kyle Orton ," fan Jesse Oaks said. "We were sitting around after Fox said he didn't hear the chants for Tebow on Monday night and we figured if he's deaf, we hope he's not blind."

"We're not Tim Tebow fanatics or anything, we just think he gives us the best chance to win," Oaks said. "But if Brady Quinn or even Adam Weber can give us a chance, that's what we want."
Orton, who struggled in the season opener against the Oakland Raiders, got irritated when a reporter asked him earlier this week if he felt any added pressure with the fans booing him and calling for Tebow to get his job.
"No, not at all. I'm not going to sit here and waste my time answering questions about it, to be honest with you," Orton said. "Until coach comes to me, he's the only one that I'm going to listen to. So, I'd rather you guys not waste my time with the questions because I'm not going to answer them."

I honestly don't know what it is exactly the fans see in Tebow. If the man was ready to play, he'd already be playing. Not too long ago, Yahoo reported that technically he is now the teams fourth-string quarterback. Basically meaning, had Tebow not been a first-round draft pick last season, he'd probably be on the practice squad right now, if not just unemployed altogether.
Good luck winning games if and when he finally does get his chance Broncos fans. You're gonna need it.
