ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Kyle Orton can rest easy. He won't have to look over his shoulder to see if rookie Tim Tebow is going to take his job.
Denver coach Josh McDaniels indicated Monday that he has no plans to fast-forward Tebow Time now that the Broncos (3-9) have officially been eliminated from playoff contention for a fifth straight season.
McDaniels said Orton's had a great year and suggested Tebow wasn't ready to guide an NFL team.
Even though he's on the hot seat with a 5-17 record in his last 22 games, McDaniels indicated he won't turn to Tebow, who has played only sparingly since being selected in the first round of the NFL draft last April after a standout career at the University of Florida.
