08:01 AM ET 09.16 | A Broncos fan in Kentucky may wind up disappointed in his possible investment. "I've seen a lot of billboards and can't remember one that really influenced me," [John Fox] said, smiling after [Thursday's] practice. Jesse Oaks of Independence, Ky., said Wednesday that he and seven of his friends intended to use $10,000 to purchase two billboards in downtown Denver to declare Tebow should replace Kyle Orton as the team's starter. "I love our fans' passion," Fox said. ... Asked about the prospect of billboards supporting him, Tebow said: "Um, well, I mean I guess I appreciate the support. But we have people in charge here that we trust, and trust that they're going to do the right thing and do a good job."

No wonder Kentucky is known for basketball.

So... if we had $10,000 to spend on a billboard, what would it have on it?

I am certain none of us would waste space with "Start Tebow"...



Mine - just the cover of the Frank Zappa album - "You Are What You Is"...

Just to keep 'em guessing.

I was thinking they should use a picture of Brady Quinn. That shot of Orton is really dorquee, and we know there's only one other picture of an active Denver quarterback.

Oh - come on...who here doesn't want a two story picture of "the finger"...blocking the horizon in their town?

One thing's for sure - he didn't make that much being a dentist in Kentucky.

Ha, FN found my football picks for this weeks games offensive and deleted them.

I think someone has gone way too far!

If Tebow is your quarterback of the future, start getting players that play to his playing style (i.e.-the Colts and Manning). Oh wait a minute....John Fox doesn't know much about that...just ask any Carolina Panther fan and how stale the offensive play selection was. And yes "offensive" can carry many different meanings.
