Broncos Fan Wants ‘Anything But Orton’ Billboard Advertising

DENVER (CBS4)- The calls to bench Denver Broncos Quarterback Kyle Orton may be something that you not only hear in the Mile High City, but also what you see.

A Broncos fan who attends a college out-of-state said he’s ready to take it to the next level.

“After hearing John Fox’s comments that he didn’t hear the Tebow chants, we feel like if our coach is deaf, we should make sure he isn’t blind,” said Broncos fan Jesse Oaks.

Oaks lives in Kentucky. He wants to send a message that can’t be missed. Oaks and a group of supporters want to put billboards around Sports Authority Field, near Colfax and Interstate 25.

“I want them to be in the most noticeable place and I want John Fox to be able to see them when he goes to work and when he goes home,” said Oaks.

Oaks said he has raised $500 and has enough for two billboards leading up to the stadium. What would be on those billboards is unknown. Oaks said he is pro-Tebow, but this campaign is just “anything but Orton.”

“I don’t care if it’s Brady Quinn, Adam Webster, I don’t care if Elway comes in there,” said Oaks.

When asked if there is a chance that a billboard could influence a coach, Fox responded, “Uh, I’ve seen a lot of billboards and I can’t remember a single one that has influenced me.”

When asked if he felt like the billboards would add any extra pressure, Orton responded, “No, not at all. I’m not going to waste my time answering those questions, to be honest with you.”

Several advertising agencies have already stated they won’t carry the anti-Orton billboard. Oaks said those companies don’t want to offend the Broncos.

    Jesse Oaks needs to concentrate on the more important things than football. Geez, there are better things to get upset about and spend money toward. Donate the money to charity or to a cause that can make a difference. Not to something as lame as this.

      Agreed! Kyle had about 7 seconds of bad time in that game, but the receivers are the real culprits. Also, if anyone remembers, Tebow didn’t play all that well in his last few games. Leave Kyle alone!

  • Jessica Rose

    Well guess we will all see how Kyle Orton does on Sunday if the Broncos lose again then bench Orton

    So, Jesse. How you feelin’ about Tebow now? LOL!
