Tebow To Fans: Thanks, But I'm Good

Tim Tebow appreciates his fans cheering for him to take over as the Denver Broncos' quarterback but says he trusts his coach and will bide his time without complaint.

A group of his most ardent supporters have said they'd like to buy two billboards in downtown Denver urging coach John Fox to bench Kyle Orton in favor of the former Florida star.

Tebow said he'd rather they donate the $10,000 to his charitable foundation.

Orton had a poor performance in a loss to the Oakland Raiders on Monday night but Tebow didn't go in.

Tebow said the Broncos don't have a specific package of plays designed to capitalize on his skills like they did last year, when he came in occasionally on short-yardage situations before starting the last three games.

    Ask Tim tebow if he approves of the new pat-downs at the stadiums.

    Tebow is not ready for starting duties and maybe never will be. Look at Brady quin, he is a first round pick that will never win more than a few games. Tebow maybe the same.

    Put a team of "great guys" together and see if that guarantees a winning season

    The only reason Tebow is hyped up is because he is christian and Elway is christian. Even Coach Fox on tv said Tebow can't play! Teabow deserves his place as third string QB. I have yet to see anything impressive Tebow has done during his past two seasons with the Broncos.

    SEEMS TO ME THAT THE BRONCO NEED NEW BLOOD ON THE FIELD, PERIOD! TEBOW IS A STAND UP GUY AND AN AWSOME QB, WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT IT WILL BE PROVEN. NATE, ORTON HAS HAD MORE THAN 1 BAD GAME, HE HAS HAD HORRIBLE GAMES SINCE BECOMING THE QB FOR DENVER....WHAT TEAM HAVE YOU BEEN WATCHING?

    Tebow just wants to play football. One day either the Broncos will realize his abilities and skills could benefit them or some other team will pick him up and he'll prove just how great he can be once they let him play the way he has proven to work. I'm not a Broncos fan but I am a Tebow fan. He is such a great role model for kids today and for even some adults.

    Why don't idiot Broncos fans realize that Orton will take them a lot further than Tebow? So he had one bad game...big whoop. Your problem isn't Orton...it's the fact that your running game is garbage. I'm also not sure the defense is much better. Respect to Tebow for being a standup guy, but start learning something about football, idiots.
