ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Tim Tebow isn't the cure-all for the Denver Broncos.
He brings energy, enthusiasm and excitement to a franchise sorely in need of all three, but he can't stop the run or defend the pass. Nor can he do anything about all the battered bodies that have relegated run-stuffers and playmakers to the trainers' rooms and operating tables.
Kyle Orton lost his starting job following the team's 1-4 start, but the Broncos have been bedeviled by more than just quarterback play in coach John Fox's first season in Denver.
Although their special teams are solid, they're ranked 25th on both offense and defense, and they're only now starting to get healthy.
