Your daily Tebow travel itinerary update

Yeah, too much attention is being paid to Tim Tebow’s schedule.

And yeah, we’re going to update his travel plans this week anyway.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes that Tebow wrapped a two-day visit in New England Tuesday, and will head to the Redskins and Browns next week.  A trip to Seattle is possible.

The Boston Herald took it one step further, writing that Tebow dined with Bill Belichick and personnel chief Nick Caserio last night at Ray Borque’s restaurant in the North End of Boston.  We’re awaiting word on what Tebow had for an appetizer.

We don’t think the Patriots interest is a smokescreen or a favor to Belichick’s buddy Urban Meyer.  New England has three second round picks and it wouldn’t shock us if the Patriots considered Tebow at No. 22 overall pick.

Perhaps we’re crazy, but we don’t think Bob Tebow’s draft projection for his son isn’t nearly as unrealistic as the PFT commentariat does.

    I hope the Pats don’t use #22 on this project. Too many needs elsewwhere.

    Florio: Admitting the problem is the first step to not repeating it. Here’s to hoping you take the next step!

  3. holycow says: Mar 30, 2010 1:30 PM

    He charged them $1600 to dine with him.

  4. Cro-Mags says: Mar 30, 2010 1:33 PM

    I can see the Pats picking him up in the 2nd round. But I doubt he’ll still be there. No way they blow a 1st rounder on him when Brady has a couple good years left in him.

  5. DCPowerGator says: Mar 30, 2010 1:33 PM

    people who know a little something about NFL QBs – belichick, shanahan, holmgren, carroll
    people bringing tim tebow in for a closer look – belichick, shanahan, holmgren, carroll
    coincidence?

  6. Florio-is-a-tool says: Mar 30, 2010 1:33 PM

    We’ll know in a month Gregg, we’ll know for sure but I think the Pats have a pretty decent back-up already, at least he’s better than the guy here.

  9. Big Stretch says: Mar 30, 2010 1:39 PM

    As long as the Bills don’t overdraft him I don’t really care where this overrated player goes.
    @holycow – very funny, and probably true except he called it a donation you know for the church.

  10. ampats says: Mar 30, 2010 1:39 PM

    Beichick, Caserio and Tebow celebrated Passover together last night.

  11. Gregjennings85 says: Mar 30, 2010 1:40 PM

    Considering how Bellicheat has been running the draft since Pioli and Dmitroff have left, I hope he drafts Tebow; that would be the proverbial cherry on top of his recent mismanagement.

    -There is a Karl Karma on line 1 for you.”

  12. CurseofBoJackson says: Mar 30, 2010 1:42 PM

    It’s not that most of us think Tebow’s father’s predictions are so wildly inaccurate or improbable. I at least, just think it’s freaking ludicrous to spend a high draft choice on a guy because he’s a good leader of men (as long as you’re a devout evangelist Christian). He doesn’t have the arm strength, doesn’t have accuracy, doesn’t have the frame, doesn’t have the speed to run, doesn’t have the strength to run defenders over. I’m sure he’s capable of it mentally, he is a winner at the collegiant and HS levels, but I don’t see it translating. So it continues to be a mystery to me that teams are looking at taking him in the first three rounds, let alone the top of the first.

    Did they visit the old north church and pray?

  14. bonecity7 says: Mar 30, 2010 1:45 PM

    As I hear it, Tebow insisted on picking up the tab!! When the waitress brought the bill and credit card form over to Tebow to sign, he did so, and then charged the waitress $160.00 for his signature!!

  15. FireJerryJones says: Mar 30, 2010 1:45 PM

    Rosenthal -
    1. Another Belichick smokescreen here. Unless Tebow can rush the passer, he ain’t going at #22.
    2. It’s Bourque.

  16. Colinito says: Mar 30, 2010 1:49 PM

    Tebow to the 49ers at pick #9 overall. You heard it here first, will post my mock when it’s done

  17. CriticalBill says: Mar 30, 2010 1:57 PM

    Did anybody (Florio included) watch this year’s Senior Bowl to see what a nondescript joke of a performance Tebow put on? ESPN hyped the crap out of his appearance at that game and on the field, Tebow’s ball was all over the place, he was throwing bounce passes to receivers, and as scattershot as any QB I’ve ever seen. Cincy QB Tony Pike and CM’s Dan LeFevour both were far superior.
    Bad mechanics = bad quarterbacking. And Tim Tebow has bad mechanics, it’s that simple.
    Tim Tebow? He’s the next Heath Schuler.

    Actually his drafts have gotten better since they left. Last years draft class wasnt bad at all. Vollmer looks like he will be a Probowler that can either play on the left or right side. Darius Butler has alot of upside and made some good plays for his somewhat limited roll. Edelman looks like a mini-Wes. I like last years draft alot

    @DCPowerGator
    What in the hell does Carroll know about QB’s?

  20. TrueFan says: Mar 30, 2010 2:04 PM

    Hey “CurseofBoJackson” – a few things:
    1) No such thing as a Devout “Evangelist” Christian. You either meant “Evangelistic, or Evangelical (not the same word/meaning BTW).
    2) Did you see the item on ESPN by Kerry J. Byrne? Compared Tebows’ stats with a number of Highly accomplished COLLEGE QBs who were drafted #1. Tebow in college was statistically MORE ACCURATE than all of them, including Peyton Manning.
    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/kerry_byrne/03/22/tim.tebow/
    The guys stats truly don’t line up with this recent perception that he can’t throw the football. (Or that he is not “accurate” as you propose. Just because a bunch of talking heads have criticized his throwing motion doesn’t suddenly make him inaccurate, weak-armed and unable to play QB.
    My heavens, people pay attention to the stats. He’s simply one of the most accomplished college QBs EVER. EVER – Period Not just “running” the ball either. Higher Passing percentage, Yards per throw, TDS per throw, Total TDS. Just about EVERY category you can excel at – he did.
    I’m not saying he will translate to a great NFL QB. But don’t misrepresent his accomplishments because you believe everything some talking head says. Or (maybe) because you have a beef with Christians?

  22. Rasta says: Mar 30, 2010 2:10 PM

    If Tebow would just torture a few dogs He would be about the same kind of quarterback as Vick.

  23. Bwa Ha Ha says: Mar 30, 2010 2:12 PM

    Does he have plans to go to Bethlehem? Jerusalem?

  24. AllThat says: Mar 30, 2010 2:18 PM

    @truefan:
    So when is he being drafted?

  25. lebowski says: Mar 30, 2010 2:23 PM

    I never thought I’d miss the Favre stories….

  26. ItalianArmyGuy says: Mar 30, 2010 2:30 PM

    That must have been a fun dinner – Tebow and Belicheat. The 2nd coming of Christ and the anti-Christ together at the same dinner table.
    Tim: “Bill, would you lead us in grace before we eat this blessed food?”
    Bill: “mumble mumble, God I’m hungry, mumble – is that enough?”
    Tim: “Amen, Bill.”
    Bill: “So Tim, we want you because you don’t mind playing with a concussion, which is a big thing around here.”
    Tim: “Bill, any team that drafts me, they are going to have to commit to supporting some missionary work in Africa. We’re going to go over there and circumcise a few thousand men. Can you get behind me on this?”
    Bill: “So Tim, have you ever run a sideline video camera?”
    Tim: “Tell me about your team prayer meetings Bill?”
    Bill: “Well Tim, we don’t really need to pray. See, we’ve got this deal kind of rigged, and waiting for God to respond can take a long time. Now, I’ve got a DVD here with the Bills’ defensive signals from last year, I want you to go to your hotel room and study them, I’ll have a test for you…”
    Tim: “Now, I need my coach to be with me 100% on this African circumcision thing Bill. Will you come with me and hold my scalpels while I cut?”
    Bill: “Waiter! Check!”

  27. Big Stretch says: Mar 30, 2010 2:30 PM

    It’s easy to have a high completion percent when you don’t throw the ball more than 7 yards at a time. also helps that the Gaytors only played 3 teams worth a damn last year.

    i heard holgram wants him. thats ok. nothing happens in cleve anyway! bottom feeders .they already moved your team once!

  30. jb1996 says: Mar 30, 2010 2:37 PM

    y is tebow getting this much attention when he will be picked in 2nd round by jacksonville just to sell tickets when he should be drafted in 3rd round by buffalo as he would fit well with the spread, he is not god get ovr it something else has to be going on in the football world then to talk about a mans meal

    It’s Ray Bourque. Not Ray Borque. Please, even if you’re not a hockey fan get one of the top 5 defensive players in NHL history’s name spelled right. Ok Flourio. :)

  33. it's all bs says: Mar 30, 2010 3:00 PM

    Man you are really trying to sell this guy!
    I mean who are u trying to convince: your posters or yourself…I think it’s yourself and you need to step away from your PC!
    I’m not buying this BS…he’s NOT an NFL QB and that is that…nuff said about it!

  34. TrueFan says: Mar 30, 2010 3:47 PM

    Hey cbrianwatkins ,
    I did not say they did translate. I was simply pointing out that the only thing anyone has to go on regarding judging a college QBs performance is the college QB’s stats.
    And to say that Tebow was “inaccurate” was simply.. well “Inaccurate.”
    You cut and pasted an PORTION of my post.
    I also said:
    I’m not saying he will translate to a great NFL QB.

  35. TrueFan says: Mar 30, 2010 3:54 PM

    I love the “nuff said” comment. Like it just ends or completes every discussion. Just because YOU think it’s “Nuff said” LOL

    From NFL.com:
    “New England Patriots: B-
    The Patriots didn’t need any Day 1 starters, so they traded back and may have landed three potential starters or rotational players in Round 2: SS Patrick Chung, CB Darius Butler and DT Ron Brace. And, what do you know? They took a quarterback in the seventh round, except Julian Edelman out of Kent is a slash type who could develop into the latest late-round QB to make a name for himself with the Patriots.”
    Passing on Clay Matthews = A bad move.

  37. CriticalBill says: Mar 30, 2010 4:37 PM

    Hey TrueFan,
    When you are playing in a college All-Star game and your passes are bouncing off the field into your receivers shins, that’s a sign that your passing is inaccurate.
    I’ll say it again, for those slow on the uptake: bad mechanics = bad quarterbacking
    And Tebow has bad mechanics.
    (You know who else was good at the college level? Ty Detmer, also a washout at the NFL level.)

  38. DCPowerGator says: Mar 30, 2010 4:52 PM

    @irishgary – well, pete carroll’s had three QBs drafted in the top 10, not to mention whipping notre dame’s ass every year like the service academy equivalent that they have become. any other questions?
    @bigstretch – “doesn’t throw the ball more than 7 yards at a time” – really? i guess that makes his 9.43 yards per attempt even more impressive. there’s plenty to criticize tebow about but try to at least have some sort of clue about what they are. (insert typical “stats don’t matter, only my uneducated, unsupported opinion does” here)

  39. jackybadass says: Mar 30, 2010 4:56 PM

    billacheat cant do it all. gm coach coordinator. krafty is screwing him too. all the pats picks are bad except for brady. one good pick in a lifetime!

  40. TheWizard says: Mar 30, 2010 5:06 PM

    Perfect.
    Now all the losers that think the Patriots have been lucky for 10 years can get together with the people who think Tebow is getting all these accolades due to luck.
    You deserve each other.

  41. DCPowerGator says: Mar 30, 2010 6:25 PM

    LOL @ thewizard – score!

  42. B Atkins says: Mar 30, 2010 6:36 PM

    CurseofBoJackson: Wrong on all accounts. Damn near every LB & DB that Tebow has flattened is playing on Sundays…including Jerod Mayo, Laurinaits, Geno Hayes, both Brinkley bro’s, Asher Allen, Ali Highsmith etc. Too Slow? The only speed/agility drill/s having ANYTHING to do with football are the 3 cone, short shuttle, long shuttle… Tebow’s times in these drills were better than 3 of the fastest dudes at the NFL Combine.
    Doesn’t have the frame? Are you frickin’ kidding? You lost ALL credibility with that moronic stament… Tebow is probably the strongest kid to EVER play QB… Jeez… I need to reload to complete shooting hole in your BS.
    I’ll bet you wear a tinfoil hat.

  43. B Atkins says: Mar 30, 2010 6:42 PM

    DCPowerGator – Dude, don’t bother with these cement headed fools. We both know that facts will screw up a good argument. Anything about Tebow sure does bring out the basement dwelling tin foil hat brigade.
    We’ll let ‘em think they’re blogging from the basement… but it’s actually the crawlspace of their mobile homes.
    Damn, good thing neither of us brought up the fact that Tebow is more accurate, has more TD’s & only 1 INT on throws 15+ yds in the air, than is Bradford, McCoy or Clausen…

  44. michael says: Mar 30, 2010 8:01 PM

    CriticalBill. Everybody is entitled to their opinion. However, I will give you an alternative thought. People over scrutinize Tebow much like they over hype Vince Young, way too much. You mentioned the Senior Bowl, take into consideration A he is a SPREAD QB and B The South line could not stop the North’s d-line. Tebow was average at best at the Senior Bowl, nevertheless he displayed how “coachable” he is. Which in the NFL can o a loooong way. You cant discredit that he has the brains and leadership skills. So the intangibles are there. The mechanics NEED work much like Alex Smith, Vince Young, Phllip Rivers, Byron Leftwhich, or any other QB who needed to sit or be “tweaked”. He has an arm though not a “cannon” and he has good enough mobility. He has to sit and yes he is a project but, there is still a chance. The right system and the right coaches can probably turn him into an NFL QB. Dont forget Kurt Warner, Jake Delhome, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Bret Favre were all 2nd, late, or undrafted. Tebow has a hill to climb but, i wouldnt be one to go against him
