Some Denver Broncos fans feel their calls for Tim Tebow haven’t been heard. So they’ll make them seen, instead.
A thread on the team’s official forums indicates that a group of Broncos fans are planning on purchasing a pair of billboards in the Denver downtown area. The message? “Bench Orton, play Tebow.”
They’re not ponying up the dough yet, though — they’re willing to wait one more week for Kyle Orton to perform. If Orton doesn’t perform well against the Cincinnati Bengals this week, he and the rest of the Broncos will have to look up at Tim Tebow’s face on their commute. From the thread (preemptive sic) —
Me and 7 of my buddies who are all die hard broncos fans have finally raised enough money for 2 downtown denver billboards to read: Bench orton play Tebow w/ a few different on the field photos. We are waiting to see how orton does this week vs the bungals. No we are not timmy fanatics we are true broncos fans for years and years and we are sick of seeing all the excuses for orton. So hopefully by week 3 the billboards will be up!
(UPDATE: The Denver Post interviewed the fans, who say the billboards will cost $10,000. Yowza.)
It’s Week Two, and fans are already resorting to this. Kyle Orton doesn’t need more reasons to play better. Just do it, Kyle.
What are all your thoughts?
