pedal play?

i have a 96 f350 cc lb with 218,000. lately ive had to press the accelerator pedal a long way before anything happens. truck starts/idles fine, doesnt seem to be getting wide open throttle though. this problem has slowly gotten worse. it makes it a pain to back up trailer, seems to be less off idle control. any ideas what the cause would be? thanks in advance

Could be the throttle position sensor.

Or the idle switch on the pedal, not clicking on until you've had to push the pedal further.
