    Dont ever doubt the football genius of Bill Belichick. He has something in mind....

    Of course, antireligious zealots hate Tebow because he is a Christian.

    Re: Tebowing in Foxboro

    I don't think he is hated because he is a devout Christian. There are many that respect him for his beliefs and somehow make a connection from that to the football field. There are others that likely find him an amusing specimen like a laboratory rat. Hmmm, look at him. He is outwardly religious and has a nerve to talk about it! Isn't that special!

    If he can't produce, he's toast. The time he came to Foxboro in the playoffs? He was HORRENDOUS. How he beat the Steelers the week before is beyond me. Troy Polamaloooo was just way too aggressive on the overtime play on got caught going the wrong way.

    I think he has the atheltic ability and attitude to be an NFL star, but only if he can deal with not being a QB.

    Um, ok?



    Inside the NFL host “JB” James Brown asked his co-host Cris Collinsworth a question regarding how Tim Tebow is treated, and Collinsworth was straightforward about his thoughts.  Collinsworth said, “It’s unbelievable, JB, that one of the best kids – pure kids that’s ever come into the NFL, is hated because of his faith, because of his mission work, because of the fact that he wears it on his sleeve…”

    Re: Tebowing in Foxboro

    I trust BB to find a spot for Tebow because despite his inadequecies as a QB, the guy could play a role as a runner, lead blocker in some situations, and likely a H-Back/TE hybrid. 

    Certainly giving a guy a chance to make the team who is willing to do whatever he is asked to do on the field and is a proven winner is a no brainer, and I suspect more teams would have given him a look if they didn't feel the media circus would be too distracting, especially during the off season where teams are molding their identities. 

    But a team like the Patriots makes a lot of sense as a landing spot for Tebow.  There won't be any pressure for him to step in the QB role, he can occupy the 3rd QB slot and give the first team defense some interesting looks when preparing for teams that utlize the read option (Carolina is one the schedule this year and other teams may use that look situationally) and the Pats can also work on developing some of his other skill sets.  He's a big guy with good open field instincts, so him catching the ball out of the backfield, or being a short yardage type back makes a lot of sense.

    Pats can also work on developing some of his other skill sets.

    Belichik has a history of thinking outside the box with utilizing the skill sets of his players. He likes guys that can do more than one thing and I think that Tebow fits that mold. They're also pretty no nonsense when it come to non-football isssues so this it probably a good place for Tebow to land. Bill will base his evaluation on whether or not this guy can help the team and keep him based on that alone.

    Agreed.  Right now picking him up is a low risk proposition.  He can work out with the team for the next couple of months, the coaches can see how performs in practice and in some preseason action, and then figure out if there is a good spot for him on the 53 man roster.  I think for him to make the team he will need to on special teams as well to justify a roster spot since he will probably spend the year as a situational player learning a new role on the job.  But I am sure if you ask Tebow he will be just fine with that, I genuinely think he just wants an opportunity to play football even if it isn't at the QB position.

    It is a good move for both.  The Pats signed him at the veteran league minimum, Tebow wants to play until at least he sticks around long enough to collect benefits from the league for a while.

    If anything Tebow will be a good practice QB and I doubt will do anything against Bill's way.

    Give me a f'ing break. He isn't hated. He was mocked because of his constantly "tebowing".

     

    Just like you'd mock a baseball player for abulating towards Mecca every time he hit a home run.



    Jah.  I can't get through a single game without that offending me.  Sigh.  How did muslims learn to play ball anyways?

    You're gonna have to do better than Collinsworth's self-righteous bloviating to make a point.  The guy keeps his wind in jars to savor later.

    Tebow is not the first nor last 1st-round pick fail to meet expectations.

    That said, the only time I had issue with Tebow was when he opposed our Pats.

    Bullsh!ht. There is an element that hates him because of his religion. Listen to sports radio, watch shows like Around the Horn. Well documented that there are many who can't stand him due to his religious stance.

    Is that hatred or just mockery?

     

    (I don't listen to sports radio or watch around the horn, so I'm just asking...)

     

    I have no problems with Tebow, but there can indeed be something unseemly about grandiose gestures of faith in the public eye.  If he's mocked in public, I think it's because he's playing in public at being a drama queen/primadonna, not because he's a devout christian.

    Regardless, that may change in tight-lipped, tight-scripted Foxboro...

    I'm not religious and I have no problem with Tebow's religion. He doesn't go out of his way to show off his faith all that much. I've seen others who are MUCH worse.

    Hes hated because he is an absolutely dreadful qb, and that's really it. If he was great no one would care about his religious or political affiliations.

    but seriously, because I don't follow sports, are there baseball players that bow to Mecca when they hit a home run?
