ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - It's the one question Josh McDaniels has dreaded since his surprising selection of Tim Tebow in April: Will he jump-start his first-round draft pick's seasoning if the Denver Broncos' season starts to slips away?
The Broncos are bad: they're 3-7, the worst team in the middling AFC West. They've lost 15 of 20 for the first time since 1971-72 and they haven't won back-to-back games in nearly a year.
But they're not mathematically out of playoff contention, with division leader Kansas City at 6-4.
But McDaniels won't entertain the notion of giving Tebow many more snaps just yet.
