Tebow to Start on Sunday: Tim Tebow is the methodone arriving just in time for the national media’s painful Favre withdrawal. He will start his first career NFL game on Sunday at Oakland in place of Kyle Orton, who has bruised ribs. The Denver press will have to now dig deep to come up with something other than a “start Tebow” story. Just remember, no matter how bad or good he plays tomorrow, it will likely mean virtually nothing for the future. I expect massive overreaction one way or the other on Sunday evening, though. [ESPN]
