As if losing to the Oakland Raiders at home on the first Monday Night Football nightcap of the year wasn't enough humiliation, the Denver Broncos are a laughingstock again today in the sports world because of a plan by a group of "fans" to buy two billboards in town insisting that the team replace starting quarterback Kyle Orton with Tim Tebow.
According to news reports, Jesse Oaks (who lives in Kentucky, but is a Broncos fan) and some friends plan to use the $10,000 they had saved to go the Super Bowl this year to purchase the billboard advertising downtown.
"We believe in Coach (John) Fox, we're just tired of Kyle Orton," Oaks 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."
What will the billboard say? Here are ten possibilities. Billboard art by Westword art director Jay Vollmar.
