Broncos quarterbacks fined Tebow over billboard incident

Kyle Orton,  Tim Tebow AP

By all accounts, Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow behaves like a perfect gentleman, and the ideal teammate.  But before he became the starting quarterback in Denver, his reaction — or, more accurately, his lack thereof — to the placement of a billboard lobbying for him to become the starting quarterback prompted a definite response from the other quarterbacks on the team.

According to Jeff Darlington of NFL Network, the other quarterbacks began fining Tebow four days after the billboard appeared, due to his failure to speak out against the billboard.

Per Darlington, the reason never was articulated to Tebow.  Whether Tebow figured it out on his own isn’t known.  (Fans of rival SEC schools possibly would point to his Florida education and suggest that he didn’t make the mental connection.)  But the fines continued for six days, until Tebow became the starter.

Though not nearly as juicy or revealing as a locker room fight or a sideline blowup, it’s the first evidence of any frustration with Tebow from his teammates.  And it’s further proof of a passive-aggressive style that Tebow periodically displays, making his point without causing a ruckus.  Like when he evaded direct questions from Shannon Sharpe of CBS as to whether Tebow believes he enjoys the full support of the organization.

Right or wrong, Tebow’s fellow quarterbacks believed he should have expressed disagreement with the billboard, and that by failing to do so he necessarily approved of it.  And so, instead of responding to passive-aggression with more of the same, Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn opted to take the Tebow by the horns and punish him financially for failing to truly be the kind of teammates everyone presumes him to be.

While irrelevant now that Tebow is the starter, it’ll be interesting to see what happens if/when fans ever purchase a billboard calling for Tebow to be benched.

UPDATE 4:41 p.m. ET:  As several of you have pointed out, and as I had forgotten, Tebow said on September 15 that he’d rather the money spent on the billboard be donated to his charitable foundation.  “Well, I guess I appreciate the support, you know, but we got people in charge here that we trust and [I] trust they’re going to do the right thing,” Tebow said.  Apparently, the fines arose not after the billboard that prompted Tebow’s September 15 comments was displayed, but after another billboard went up.

    Players can fine players?

  2. mrplow3 says: Dec 31, 2011 3:14 PM

    Orton and Quinn are small, small men.

    Actually they officially lost the tag “men”. They have been demoted to boys.

    I’m no Tebow fan but this is completely pathetic.

  3. claymatthewsisonsteroids says: Dec 31, 2011 3:15 PM

    How the hell can a qb fine another qb?

  4. jcusa514 says: Dec 31, 2011 3:21 PM

    orton and quinn should have fined themselves for their level of play

  5. theslex says: Dec 31, 2011 3:22 PM

    How, exactly, does a teammate enforce a fine against another teammate?

    The Packers WR corps buy the other WRs a Best Buy gift card for every drop, but that’s different. Everyone is accountable and it was mutually decided upon. Is just seems like an awful strange story (coming from a non-Tebowmaniac, btw).

  6. localbandhero says: Dec 31, 2011 3:24 PM

    How did they fine him? Where do they get that power?

    Besides, Quinn is just awful.

  7. dawsonleery says: Dec 31, 2011 3:25 PM

    I think Orton and Quinn were a little out of line. Its not Tebow’s fault the fans in Denver wanted to win.

  8. fissels says: Dec 31, 2011 3:26 PM

    Not a big deal. Hard thing to know how to react to. I don’t fault Tebow

  9. troybulletinboard says: Dec 31, 2011 3:30 PM

    Tebow NOT coming out against the fans putting up billboards to take his teammates jobs isn’t a big deal? that’s ridiculous. while kyle orton was nothing spectacular, he was still Tebow’s teammate, and owned the #1 job at the time. He deserved more respect than silence.

  10. majorseahawk says: Dec 31, 2011 3:31 PM

    I’m pretty sure you have to work in the front office to be able to fine anyone…….players don’t have that power.

  11. nanananaboobo says: Dec 31, 2011 3:34 PM

    The billboard was right…It’s hard to argue with the difference between 1-4 and 7-3

  12. griblets says: Dec 31, 2011 3:35 PM

    I hope he didn’t pay the “fine.” I’m not exactly a Tebow fan, but the concept that teammates could fine one another is absurd.

  13. George Steiner says: Dec 31, 2011 3:35 PM

    Kangaroo Courts are intended to be humorous.

  14. troybulletinboard says: Dec 31, 2011 3:36 PM

    why are you people so surprised at players fining players? that’s how it should be. management handles the big fines, players handle small things themselves. i know you all love you some tebow time but don’t be so obtuse.

  15. bonerchamp says: Dec 31, 2011 3:39 PM

    If he responds to that, then where does he draw the line? Twitter comments? Facebook blasts? Skip Bayless’s obsession?

    There is no controversy here. Just more BS stories about a polarizing QB who is completing 48% of his passes. Yawn….

  16. ricardorobertasq says: Dec 31, 2011 3:43 PM

    So he should have a fire in him and desire to start, otherwise you worry about his passion for the game. If that’s what the sign was asking for, shouldn’t he be 100% behind it. I’m sorry, if Orton was getting the job done, none of this would have matterred. You fight for a starting job; this is the NFL, not Little League.

  17. truthserum4u says: Dec 31, 2011 3:43 PM

    Fining guys within a locker room has been going on for years in multiple sports. It’s good natured ribbing, giving a guy a hard time, etc. The Denver Broncos’ offensive linemen did it for years during the Zimmerman/Schlereth era. Baseball has it’s kangaroo courts.

    While the QBs may have been sending a message as to how a pro should react to such a billboard, I don’t think it’s quite as sinister as your suggestion it’s along the lines of frustration that leads to a fight or blow up.

  18. packerfan1000 says: Dec 31, 2011 3:45 PM

    This story makes Orton and Quinn look absolutely pathetic. Even more pathetic than their sorry QB skills.

  19. jagsgrl says: Dec 31, 2011 3:47 PM

    what a bunch of crybabies…….orton should have played better

  20. debz0717 says: Dec 31, 2011 3:47 PM

    Yes every team has player enforced fines. The different parts of the team (o-line, defensive backs, wrs, rbs, qbs etc) mutually agree on fineable things and there is typically a committee to judge. Its how each player holds others accountable as adults. The money goes to charity. I really see no issue with it.

  21. troybulletinboard says: Dec 31, 2011 3:48 PM

    for the people thinking orton and quinn are jackasses for fining tebow- would you expect tebow to stand up for the current starter at any other position, if there were a billboard DEMANDING his job be given to his backup? or would tebow stay silent for that guy too? case closed.

  22. peggypost says: Dec 31, 2011 3:49 PM

    I was interested in the Orton revenge factor to this Chiefs/Broncos game. Now I just want Tebow to take it to them. Orton and Quinn seem like a couple of sorority girls.

  23. ChrisCicc says: Dec 31, 2011 3:50 PM

    A couple of years ago I was in the subway and drunk homeless guy was harassing two young girls. I stepped in to get him off their back, and he got angry at me. I stood there, silently, with my hands around my back, with several dozen onlookers circled around, as this guy kept yelling at me “shut up! SHUT UP! SHUT THE F UP!” for about two minutes. The entire time I never said a word. Ultimately it was his own insecurities he was talking to, not me.

    This story about the QBs reminds me of that, because Tebow didn’t say a word, and the other two QBs were very insecure about their jobs, so their fining him was really just a non drunk way of yelling “Shut up!” to the person not saying a word.

  24. steelerdynasty2010 says: Dec 31, 2011 3:59 PM

    please tell me he didnt actually pay……

  25. geefan1 says: Dec 31, 2011 4:05 PM

    Given his performance since taking over, Tebow should demand a refund.

  26. masurix says: Dec 31, 2011 4:17 PM

    Didn’t Tebow publicly say that they should donate that money to charity instead of using it to put up the billboard before it ever went up? I’m pretty sure I read that on this very site…

  27. xtb3 says: Dec 31, 2011 4:19 PM

    Bill Maher put up the sign?

  28. eknirb says: Dec 31, 2011 4:20 PM

    It’s a joke, a Kangaroo Court. Get over it.

  29. vincentbojackson says: Dec 31, 2011 4:20 PM

    Makes Orton and Brady look like complete a-holes. Maybe if they we’re less concerned with what a billboard said and more concerned with their game they could have kept Tebow off the field.

  30. cuda1234 says: Dec 31, 2011 4:24 PM

    So and ideal teammate is someone who skips off-season practices to promote his book about himself, then shows up unprepared to play and undermines his teammates?

  31. skolvikesskol says: Dec 31, 2011 4:26 PM

    This is very revealing about Shebow. What a jerk. His silence is agreement. This guy his built up this jc image, however it is false. This is the type if guy that pretends to bw humble in front of cameras but is just as much a prima donna image concious jerk as TO.

  32. emma333 says: Dec 31, 2011 4:27 PM

    Very early in his career, Tebow was known to document his abilities and good works lots of self-promotion. It has really taken on a life of its own (to say the very least), and I think understands that he must be very careful in what he says….He has to keep everything VERY positive, and he has done just that.

  33. contract says: Dec 31, 2011 4:28 PM

    “Right or wrong…”

    No, not right or wrong … just flat wrong. It isn’t the job of any player to respond to every bit of nonsense stirred up by fans or the media.

    ——————————————-

    He actually sent out a tweet, (I know, a tweet, but still) asking the fans to donate the money to his charity rather than set up the billboard.

  35. jacunn2000 says: Dec 31, 2011 4:33 PM

    Orton and Quinn. Seriously? This is probably why nwhy one of you is gone and the other is holding a clipboard still.

    “And so, instead of responding to passive-aggression with more of the same, Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn opted to take the Tebow by the horns and punish him financially…”

    Fining him without telling him what he’s being fined for isn’t passive-aggressive? Could have fooled me.

  37. Ron08 says: Dec 31, 2011 4:40 PM

    I feel so out of it! What did the billboard say anyway? That just showed weakness on the other players’ part…so sad LOL.

    ——————————

    33rd in the league in passing yds/game
    33rd in passing attempts/game
    33rd in yards/game

    I’m also pretty sure that he leads the league in QB fumbles. Yea, he can run well but the QB’s primary function is to pass the ball, if the QB can run it’s a bonus, not his primary function.

    Aside from that, all he does is win right? The Broncos are on a 2 game losing streak that most likely will extend to 3 games to finish the season.

    Seriously though, all teams do this. If it wasn’t saint Timmy, this wouldn’t even be news. I can’t believe all the Tebow boosters getting so upset over something that’s been going on for decades.

  39. bischof21 says: Dec 31, 2011 4:45 PM

    Wait people here still actually think Tebow is good?

  40. nflfollower says: Dec 31, 2011 4:46 PM

    Actually fining tebow every day without communicating why seems like the passive aggressive action here. And out of curiosity, what are his other instances of “periodic” passive aggresive behavior?

  41. stevenfbrackett says: Dec 31, 2011 5:03 PM

    RE: Update

    Those comments don’t do what the other QBs wanted him to do – namely show some support for his teammates – even insincerely.

    “Aw sucks, I guess the coaches know what they are doing ’cause, ya know they’re the coaches and they know what they are doing.” is not the same thing at all as “Orton is our QB and I am learning from him everyday. My time will come when the time is right.”

    One is a silent fist pumping “Yes!” the other is a public “I’ve got your back, man.”

  42. hatesycophants says: Dec 31, 2011 5:30 PM

    Some of you “fans” don’t know a thing about professional football. Is this the casual fan the league and the corporate media panders to? Why?

    Go Lions! Go Badgers!

  43. tmilla19 says: Dec 31, 2011 5:37 PM

    @firejasongarret and everyone else who was wondering

    It’s called Kangaroo court. All big league teams do it every professional sport. When you do something detrimental to the team in obvious situations that you can control, you are held accountable. Usually that stuff stays in the locker room where it belongs though. Jason Garret shoulda been fined for taking that timeout against the Cardinals and he lucked out when the Eagles gave him the ball back for that late touchdown. If they would have been shut out, that is big time Kangaroo court material when they could have just kicked the field goal before the Eagles gave them the ball back.

  44. thetooloftools says: Dec 31, 2011 5:38 PM

    Yea, maybe Orton and Quinn would have had to worry about that billboard if they hadn’t been playing like crap. Quinn is about 1 draft away from being cut anyway :o

  45. wilnel1984 says: Dec 31, 2011 5:58 PM

    So, now that he has won 7 games, does this mean that Quinn and Orton have to pay this money back?

    What happens if they make the playoffs tomorrow?

  46. joetoronto says: Dec 31, 2011 6:18 PM

    Orton, Quinn and Tebow, they all suck, bad.

  47. eleventyeight says: Dec 31, 2011 6:24 PM

    Let’s all just hate Tebow for being Christian and daring to say so while the state of CA mandates by law the teaching to third-graders of the contributions of the LGBT community to the history of America.

    Because we have our priorities *totally* in order!

    Amiright??

    /now THAT was some passive-aggression.

  48. TheWizard says: Dec 31, 2011 6:27 PM

    is not the same thing at all as “Orton is our QB and I am learning from him everyday

    Sheesh….

  50. discosucs2005 says: Dec 31, 2011 6:31 PM

    The article I read on this situation seemed to imply that Tebow knew exactly why he was being fined.

    I don’t know what the deal is with players fining players (although I know this is hardly the first instance, as several people in this thread seem to think), but Tebow definitely should have said something about the board.

    Tebow wants to win, but he wants to be the one to win. That’s not always a bad thing, but when he silently allows the fans to insult a teammate, and says things like “only one person gets the ball here” he’s implying that he’s more important than his teammates.

  51. sportssportssportssports says: Dec 31, 2011 6:31 PM

    Tebow is a tough competitor, but he sure throws like a woman

  52. couldntthinkofaname says: Dec 31, 2011 6:31 PM

    Quinn didn’t have any billboards put up in Cleveland, but he certainly didn’t seem to mind the three year rubdown Browns fans gave the so-called local boy.

    So he doesn’t mind it if the support’s directed FOR him. Someone else, not so much.

  53. acieu says: Dec 31, 2011 6:33 PM

    Tebow should get his imaginary friend to pay the fines.

  54. tatum064 says: Dec 31, 2011 6:36 PM

    This is a pretty lame story….and looks as if it is one to antagonize both teams and put a little spice in the rivalry or sprinkle dissension among a team that has backed Tebow….hoping that Orton gets his revenge, but Tebow has had intangibles, and the defense has backed it.

    Will be interesting to see if Romeo Crennel can script a defense to stop him….this is a big game, because if Tebow tanks (like he did v. Buffalo), Elway can opt to draft for a QB. Mind you, not only would the offense have to modify to a traditional 3-5 step drop deal, but the QB would be right-handed….its going to be controversial, and even if a QB is drafted, he will need to be perfect to satisfy the Tebow fans…

    Elway’s not running the organizarion. Their idiot college option football fans are. I hope Orton blows them up. Then he can finger the fans since he’s clearly the better QB. At least in every “professional” sports mind he is.

    If Tebow can go 7-2 with his lack of ability, Quinn couldn’t do any worse being Tebow was their #3. Common sense is HARD…

    If a co-worker tried to fine me I’m not sure if I’d laugh in their face or punch them in it.

  60. realitypolice says: Dec 31, 2011 7:40 PM

    Players fining other players is done tongue-in-cheek to make fun of each other. I’ve read of instances where players were fined for wearing certain types of clothing, rookies not knowing their college fight songs, etc…

    They were obviously just having a little fun at his expense trying to add to his discomfort from all the questions he was being asked about it.

    It almost certainly was not meant as evidence of “frustration” with Tebow.

    Lighten up!!

  61. lostsok says: Dec 31, 2011 7:41 PM

    Philistines! Crucifying poor Tebow for just turning the other cheek…

  62. lostsok says: Dec 31, 2011 7:43 PM

    You know, if you could attach Tebow’s legs and Quinn’s arm to Orton’s brain…you’d have an almost decent quarterback.

    It would be like the human centipede of the NFL…

  63. stevenfbrackett says: Dec 31, 2011 7:49 PM

    Don’t get me wrong, Orton is not a great quarterback. At his very best, he will never rise above a mid-level talent.

    That said, the Broncos treated Orton like crap this year. First telling everyone he’s available for trade, and when the deal is all but signed, saying, “Eh, nevermind.” Then lackluster at best support from pretty much the whole coaching and management teams. Then letting the ‘will they let Tebow play’ nonsense drag on and on for weeks without giving him any definitive answer about that until they let the FANS force the move because they were too chickensh-t to tell the fans it wasn’t their decision to make. And then they outright release him, no trades even entertained.

    I hope Orton kicks their ass and shoves some crow down their throats. They’ve earned it.

    If a guy sucks, trade him or release him. Don’t string a guy along for weeks. That’s passive-aggressive for you.

  64. sterilizecromartie says: Dec 31, 2011 8:00 PM

    I love the know-it-alls trying to justify this as a fun Kangeroo Court gag. That kind of stuff is intended to be fun when it is something like “anyone who doesn’t grow a beard for our playoff run will be fined through the Kangeroo Court”. That’s when this kind of stuff is humorous.

    But to fine a player through this process because he is not speaking out and discouraging fans from supporting him? That’s not right. It does speak to turmoil in the locker room, specifically from the other QBs. This does not sound like a all-in-good-fun locker room gag.

    ——–
    Cmon man. There is absolutely no argument you can make that could justify that. You can argue that Tebow may never win a Super Bowl. You can argue that Tebow may never pass for even close to 4,000 yards. You can argue that Tebow may never throw for 25 TDs in a season. You can argue that Tebow may never throw for over 55% completion percentage.

    But no man can ever make the argument again that Kyle Orton is a better QB than Tim Tebow. That argument ended somewhere between 1-4 and 8-5. And I seriously question your sanity if you truly believe Orton is better.

  66. ricardorobertasq says: Dec 31, 2011 8:21 PM

    It’s very simple. Orton did not get the job done with the same players that Tebow is getting the job done with. Orton got his shot and failed. Had he played better and led the team to success, Tebow would still be buried in the depth chart. Don’t blame the front office for dragging this out and playing Tebow. They didn’t want to play him, but Orton forced their hand.

  67. frankdatank23 says: Dec 31, 2011 8:38 PM

    Tebow haters coming out in bunches, given any oppurtunity, like this. Do they dispise his popularity ? or is it that he’s very religious?, something far from strange in the nfl, to anyone who’s watched it over the past 30 years, atleast.

    jbaxt says: Dec 31, 2011 6:54 PM

    This one sounds ridiculous, even going as far as to consider themself a “professional sports mind”…. and that being the reason they know better. Then assumes Brady Quinn is better, finally submitting that common sense is hard for them. I think they are severly confused about alot more than just football.

  69. drbob117 says: Dec 31, 2011 8:59 PM

    Orton and Quinn can’t play.. what that story illustrates is how petty they are, rather than anything about Tebow. I guarantee you, the other players , who will be celebrating an AFC West title tomorrow, are happy as hell that neither stiff ended up as the QB and that they had Tebow leading the way. BTW, Quinn and Orton should realize that they are young QBs that ended up being busts , and they still get chance after chance , even after all these years. The least they can do is begrudgedly admit that Tebow deserves the same opportunity to be a stiff for the next 5-7 years that they got. Tebow is already better than both of them.

  70. rejamaro says: Dec 31, 2011 9:20 PM

    First of all, Kyle Orton is only an average quarterback. But he is much better that Tebow is. Everyone wants to credit Tebow with those wins but it was the defense. He is only riding their coattails
    Last week against Buffalo was closer to the real Tebow.
    I hope that the Denver Broncos don’t agree with me though since I am a Chiefs fan. As long as Tebow is leading that team they will never go far.

  71. iseek11 says: Dec 31, 2011 10:19 PM

    This article is a joke. This is just a case of light hearted chops budting between teammates There was no malice intended between Orton, Quinn, and Tebow. Unlike this article which is malicious. Disparaging Tebow by calling him passive-aggressive. Wise crack about his education. And questioning his loyalty as a teammate. Rudiculous.

    Back in the Broncos heyday the offensive line was told by Alex Gibbs to not speak to the press. Any o-lineman quoted was fined. It grew that anyone who was even mentioned in the press or singled out for praise was fined. It was in fun to make tge players unselfish and behave like a unit and not individuals. No malice. No bad blood.

    Thats all this was. Orton and Quinn bustin Tebows chops.

    And Tebow was not passive-aggressive with Sharpe either. Learn what the term means. He was asked if he believed he had the support of management. He answered diplomatically about being blessed, etc. thats maybe cliche or evasive at worst, but mothing else.

    And then to add as an afterthought that “oh by the way he did speak out against it even made an unselfish request so the previous 6 paragraphs mean nothing” is the epitome of sloppy journalism.

    Right on Iseek11! Do people actually think any coach would allow players to fine each other unless it was voluntary and for fun? This is like putting coins in a curse jar. Doesn’t mean anything shouldn’t have left the locker room

  74. namriverrat69 says: Dec 31, 2011 10:50 PM

    What exactly was the amount of the fine and did Tebow pay it?

    This is so absurd.

    Players do this all the time. It’s part of the camaraderie in the locker room. We did this in college when I played as well. Some of you need to check your humor meter.

    so how do they update the post and fail to mention the huge bomb that dropped that PLAYERS can fine OTHER players??? Forget tebow this is a subject that deserves its own post because i have NEVER heard of such a thing. Sounds like a system that could cause alot of problems.

    And Tebow was not passive-aggressive with Sharpe either. Learn what the term means. He was asked if he believed he had the support of management. He answered diplomatically about being blessed, etc. thats maybe cliche or evasive at worst, but mothing else.

    Yeah that bit had me scratching my head as well. He gets criticized for not verbally backing the starting QB but it’s ALSO wrong of him not to throw his front office under the bus by voicing any doubts he has about their support? Wait…what???

    Orton and Quinn should be fined daily for sucking as Qb’s and thinking they deserve to be starting Qbs in the NFL. Go rub Oil on your boyfriend Quinn, Orton go cut down a tree since you think your some kinda lumberjack with that fake real man beard your rock to take away from your natural effeminant demeanor. Yes I’m a Tebow fan and dont go to church.

    Some of you “fans” don’t know a thing about professional football. Is this the casual fan the league and the corporate media panders to? Why?

    Go Lions!
