ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The wheels have come off in Denver.

We're not talking about the Broncos' season, although it's teetering with two straight ugly losses. All they have to do to end their long playoff drought is beat their former quarterback Kyle Orton and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The Broncos were a quiet bunch Tuesday when guard Zane Beadles was toying around with his radio controlled car fresh out of the box and it slammed into a teammate's locker, leaving the right front wheel bowed.

Adam Grant, who had purchased the $370 hobby-grade car as part of the linemen's white elephant gift exchange, shook his head in disgust, while fellow tackle Orlando Franklin reminded Beadles that the machine, which can reach 70 mph when modified, is an outdoor toy.
