ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Tebowmania isn't spreading to the Broncos locker room. While much of the nation can't get enough of quarterback Tim Tebow, his teammates aren't buying into the hype. Rookie safety Quinton Carter says people outside the locker room have their fun with Tebowmania. Carter adds his teammates can't be bothered with that sort of nonsense. He says the Broncos are hard at work and want to win. Carter says all that Tebow's teammates care about is "how good of football he plays." Tomorrow, the Broncos face the New England Patriots in the divisional playoffs.
