Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our post yesterday about an ESPN SportsNation poll showing almost half the voters want Tim Tebow to start at QB for the Broncos brought out some passionate love from one of our readers.

But the love wasn't for Tebow. It was directed at Kyle Orton, the current Broncos starter.

Here's what Tina had to say:

"Tim Tebow should start at QB for Broncos, says almost half of America on ESPN's SportsNation" ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?! Kyle Orton is one of the highest rated quarterbacks in the league. One of the Broncos MANY problems is NOT Kyle Orton!!!! Uninformed idiots!!!!
