Did that get your attention? It sure got mine.

This is according to a headline from AOL Fanhouse, "Tim Tebow May Start Against Steelers." But when you get to the actual article, it says "Tim Tebow May RETURN Against Steelers."

I don't know if this was a mistake or a cheap teaser by AOL. The article published on AOL Fanhouse by NFL Writer Dennis Georgatos, said there is an outside chance that Tim Tebow could play in the game Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

That is a lot different than saying he may start. 

The article goes on to talk about what the Broncos want to accomplish and quotes Josh McDaniels "We'd like to go through a halftime where they're going to go back out there, and kind of simulate, 'OK, this is what it's going to be like here in a few weeks,' " McDaniels said. "I think we want to go through our normal process of halftime like we would during a game so that's the plan right now."

Tebow is coming off bruised ribs sustained in the Bengals game and is anxious to get back into the quarterback mix with starter Kyle Orton and fellow backup Brady Quinn.

I am happy to hear that Tebow may be ready to play again Sunday but find the way in which this article was put out there to be an example of sensationalist journalism more in line with the Enquirer than a real sports source.

But maybe that is just me.
