ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - 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.
