Remember the billboard that went up in Denver telling coach John Fox to bench Kyle Orton and play Tim Tebow at quarterback? It apparently cost Tim Tebow money.

NFL.com’s Jeff Darlington says the Broncos quarterbacks have a fines system going, and sources told him Tebow was docked money every day that the billboard was up. He apparently was fined for not speaking out against the billboard.

That really doesn’t make much sense.

The Broncos were unsuccessful with Kyle Orton starting. Tebow entered the season believing he was going to be the starter, and even commented in the preseason that he felt like the job was taken from him. If he felt he was better than Orton — and the results have proven that is the case — why should he have spoken against the billboard?

Denver was 1-4 with Orton starting and is now 7-3 under Tebow. Looks like the billboard knew what was best for the team.
