As season slips away, questions emerge about Tebow

ENGLEWOOD — 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. So McDaniels won’t entertain the notion of giving Tebow many more snaps.

Asked Tuesday if he’d consider starting Tebow instead of Kyle Orton if the Broncos fell out of playoff contention, McDaniels said: “I don’t know. I’m not willing to go there. That’s not the case right now, so we will think about that when that happens. But it’s not on our minds right now.”
