The Tim Tebow debate has risen to a new level, thanks to a billboard

This is just getting ridiculous now.

Earlier in the Denver Broncos season, after struggling in week one against the Oakland Raiders, there were Tim Tebow Chants and fans so upset that they were willing to put up billboards proclaiming to Coach John Fox that Tebow be the starter.

The billboard has gone up, just 2 days before a crucial matchup against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

The Denver Post "First and Orange" blog, was first to report of the large digital billboard, at the intersection of 58th and Logan, just east of 1-25 North of Downtown Denver.

The billboard was erected by the employees of Multiline International Imports and is located near that business.

The digital board, with rotating images, says “Broncos Fans to John Fox: Play Tebow!” The image then rotates to show a picture of Tebow coming out of the tunnel at the Broncos’ stadium.

Now I will admit, I am a Tebow fan, but although I know Bronco Nation is full of diehard fans, I think the historic move to erect a billboard to herd change is absurd.

It would be best if Denver Broncos fans would let Coach Fox and his staff focus on Football and winning games instead of worrying about pleasing the fans.

The Broncos, although at 1-2 could easily be 3-0 and starting quarterback Kyle Orton, although inconsistent at times, has not performed at the level where a change is needed, yet.

Tebow's time will come whether it is in Denver or with some other NFL team.

For now, the Broncos faithful should focus on rallying the team to victory.

Instead of stirring up a quarterback controversy.
