FOXBOROUGH -- Tim Tebow's his own media universe at this point. He handled questions during a press conference this afternoon with relative poise, although one about whether his faith has grown stronger since going through his first two NFL seasons caught him off guard.
Some quick hits from the teleconference.
Is your faith stronger:
Iím not sure, I hope so. I pray that it is because I think that whatever youíre going through in life you continue to grow as a person in your faith. And for me as a Christian trying to grow closer to the lord and continuing to try to strengthen my faith, one way you strengthen your faith is through obstacles, through adversity and thereís definitely been some of that. Then, also something that strengthens your faith is when you have things go good, how you handle it. I think for me one of my biggest prayers is win or lose, good or bad, is that Iím the same guy, I honor the lord either way and I treat people the exact same and Iím not changing no matter what happens.
Handling the media scrutiny:
Iíve honestly done my best to just try to stay clear of it, not pay too much attention, not listen to too much of it. Itís obviously hard, hard to get that far away from it. But itís something I learned when I was pretty young at Florida, not to worry about what I canít control and thatís something I canít control.
On his fourth quarter success:
Fourth quarter: I just think that Iím blessed to have great teammates and great coaches that in those fourth quarters they make me look a lot better than I am. I just thank the lord that weíve had the opportunity to pull those out.
On meeting Bill Belichick:
It was just a great opportunity to get to know a great coach. I know they were trying to get a feel for me, but I was definitely trying to learn something. Just to be around coach Belichick and all the great coaches in New England, I felt like it was a great opportunity to learn as much as I possibly could.
