(Photo) Ladies And Germs, The First Wave Of The Long-Awaited Tim Tebow Billboards…

That’s it? Who are the ad wizards who came up with this one?

A few weeks ago, it was reported that a disgruntled Denver Broncos fan was going to spend some of his hard-earned money to fund a pro-Tim Tebow billboard, hoping that head coach John Fox would drive by it and go, “Well, DERP! I guess if it’s on a billboard, I best do what it says and play Tim Tebow!” in his best highly-susceptible-to-roadside-advertising Homer Simpson impression. But that report was regarding disgruntled Jesse Oaks and his disgruntled band of disgruntled buddies. The Broncos fan behind the underwhelming signs you see above is Mohammad Suleiman, who works at a merchandise store in north Denver, whose electronic billboards are the canvas on which Suleiman applied his pro-Tim Tebow brush.

Via FOX 31 Denver:

“It’s still early in the season to be frustrated, but I mean fans are asking for Tebow. Why not give us a little dose of him?” Suleiman says. “If we can be heard, if we can reach the Broncos staff and make some change, that would be great.”

“I think if he (Mohammad) can convince Coach Fox to make a change, then he’s a genius,” says Tariq Suleiman, Mohammad’s brother. “I don’t think John Fox is that stubborn. What more can we do as fans to show what’s needed?”

Yep, I have to agree with Tariq on this one. If John Fox steps to the podium in the coming days and says, “After giving it serious thought — not to mention the uncanny influence of some insanely compelling and convincing electronic signs outside a store in north Denver — I have decided to bench Kyle Orton in favor of starting Tim Tebow,” well, I guess I’m not quite sure where I’m going with this. I wish Mohammad Suleiman would create a billboard informing me what to think about it. That would be awesome.

    Tim Tebow is an awesome person and a quality football player but if he doesn’t get results within this year then people are going to say he was a bust. The Broncos have more then just quarterback issues. Tim Tebow is going to need sometime with that team to get the chemistry flowing. I don’t think he’s going get almost instant success like Aaron Rodgers. I’m personally a fan of Tim Tebow but I say let Orton and Fox fail some more before throwing Tebow to the wolves. Afterall Orton was passed up in Chicago for Grossman. Go Tebow!

    If you remember tebow didn’t do so hot last year in the 3 games he started in. As I recall John Elway didn’t do that great untill he had a good supporting cast. Tebow has passing mechanics issues he needs to correct according to all the so called experts and maybe the coaching staff sees that too. Give it time and booing in the 4th quarter and chanting doesn’t help the confidence of the quarterback. Tebow can’t do it all anyway, when you can’t find a running back to help or a front line that can block. Remember we barely lost to the team that beat the team that blew out Pittsburg.

    True Broncos fans support Orton. Tim Tebow fanboys are the ones calling for him. The coaches work with these players day in and day out and they make their decisions for a reason. Tebow is third string for a reason.

    I believe he can be a starting QB in the league some day… but that day is not here yet. He will continue to work at it and get better, but he’s not the best QB the Broncos have right now.

    @Scott- you have zero clue. First, Aaron Rodgers SAT THE BENCH for a solid 3 years before being trusted at all in Green Bay.

    Second, Orton was NOT ‘passed over’ for Grossman in Chicago. Grossman was the incumbent QB. There is a reason Orton was actually the favored QB inside the Chicago lockerroom- Grossman was/is an interception waiting to happen for his penchant for hanging balls on long routes and thereby putting them up for grabs. Additionally, Orton in Chicago was not allowed access to running the entire offense or anything close to it, as it was his rookie year when Grossman was injured. When he did get the benefit of the whole playbook, the Bears were had lost their one decent WR, Bernard Barrien. When your receivers lack the ability to get separation, that is a huge problem.

    Third, Tebow is an NFL quality leader, MAYBE. However, in the NFL, you also need to have talent/skill in order to play first and foremost and also to establish credibility with your teammates. Not only was/is Tebow’s side-arm / low release point / long and slow delivery throwing motion unacceptable in the NFL, but he also has the fatal flaw of having poor hand/eye coordination and just plain accuracy. These major flaws were masked at Florida due to the fact their talent advantage was HUGE versus 95% of their opponents. If a guy is open by 5-10 yards, it’s a helluva lot easier to hit that window than it is to lead a guy perfectly and in stride and in a spot that the WR can catch the ball but the defender cannot.

    Fourth, do you think Tebow outperforms Orton in practice and then the coaches just decide to play Orton anyway? I mean, come on! WTF are you Tebow knee pad wearers thinking? Tebow’s very selection by the Broncos was probably McDaniels’ coup ‘d grace. It goes down as the biggest draft ‘reach’ in NFL history!….the rest of the NFL laughs at the Broncos for that pick! They could have easily gotten the guy in the 3rd round or later.

    Fifth, while Brandon Marshall is a pain in the butt, he’s no dummy! There’s a reason he was openly campaigning for the Dolphins to get Orton! That says something for a WR to like the QB at his former team that he hated so much that he left them to then request his old QB!

    Sixth, Tebow is somewhat not a ‘team’ player….he could have EASILY come out and announced to ‘his fans’ that they needed to shut the F— up and quit causing a ruckus….that there is no QB controversy and that Orton had clearly earned the job and beat him out and that he’d rather EARN the job than get it due to fan outcry. But no, if anything he’s fanned the flames by not speaking out.

    Seventh, Tebow is not a long term solution. He will be out of the league in 3 years if he is allowed to play, as he is a concussion waiting to happen with his penchant for always wanting to run the ball—maybe he wants to do that because he can therefore mask his ineptitude in passing?

    Bad teammate.

    Bad talent.

    Bad accuracy.

    Bad draft pick.

    BTW, as a Chiefs die hard fan, it would suit me and fans of every other NFL team for the Broncos to start Tebow and trade Orton.

    PS: Did you know that Orton is one of only 2 NFL QB’s to have a 2-to-1 TD to interception ration over the last three years and in each year? Bronco fans have no clue how bad the rest of their team is, at least on the O-Line.

      Believe me those of us who have a clue know that even Tebow can’t make Moreno stop running everything to the outside,help the WR learn to seperate from the DB, block,catch or tackle.
      I wouldn’t mind see him play in a few packages inside the 20 but for now that’s all he’s worth. Your giving him credit though saying he would have gone in the 3rd round. I believe the earliest would have been the 4th and most likely later. I’m a Bronco season ticket holder but my 1st team is the Dolphins. I would have loved for orton to have been able to work something out there.

    This is NOT the general opinion of Bronco fans, nor initiated by them! The real sad part of all this, is that it is only a marketing gimick for OneSwoosh.com.. How pathetic! Starting a bogus controversy just to get a few hits to their web site. Shame on you Nageeb Suleiman

    I would argue that the “true Bronco fans” back Orton. Orton’s reliable, but he lacks the fire that a modern day quarterback requires. It reads a not enough. While I have some doubts about his play, Tebow gives some identity to the team. Currently without him we lack a face to galvanize a franchise. He keeps us relevant. Elway in the front office is a step in the right direction, but less him putting on a uniform and coming out throwing like he did back in the day; he still needs to bring something to the table, or it will continue to scram PR stunt. The franchise has been playing musical chairs with coaching staff, and not chasing down big name free agents. At the very least Tebow puts us on the radar, and creates some conversation.Thats what the signs represent, they ask that you not forget about the Broncos. By the way E Man Orton out and Tebow in will have ZERO effect on the mess you have going down in KC.

    These guys are idiots. If they think they are doing Tebow any favors they are mistaken. They will only speed his departure and when he’s gone you’ll never hear about him again.

    Took Fox a while to realize Delhomme was not the answer in Charlotte. Glad you got him Denver!

    The Billboards are FAKE!!! Lots of web sites out there to let you generate your own. Used to be one called churchsigngenerator.com. You could put anything on it you wanted. Notice the way everything in the picture is EXACTLY the same except for the billboard messages themselves? What, the photographer is so good that all measurements from the billboard to the edges of the photo are equidistant? Notice the clouds above the billboards. EXACTLY the same. People are so gullible.

    You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really one thing which I believe I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very extensive for me. I am having a look forward in your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the hold of it!
