Still a cheerless celebration for Denver Broncos

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The commemorative T-shirts and caps proclaiming the Denver Broncos 2011 AFC West champions sat mostly untouched in the team's locker room Monday.

After watching replays of their 7-3 loss to Kansas City, the Broncos still weren't in any mood to celebrate their return to the playoffs after a six-year absence.

Tim Tebow walked through the quiet locker room with a big ice pack on his right shoulder and guard Chris Kuper hobbled in on a broken left leg that landed him on injured reserve.

The Broncos (8-8) have plenty of flaws that need fixing as they get ready to host the Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4) in the first round of the playoffs, including a stagnant offense led by turnover-prone Tebow and a stalled pass rush stymied by Von Miller's injured thumb.

    If Brady Quinn is put in then maybe, but other wise its over. Don't forget the only reason the Bronco's won against the Bears and Chargers is those teams gave the Bronco's there victory. Think about it they lost those games to. And even the Dolphin game thaey really didn't win. MAke Tebow a running back he will do better there.
