Bill Belichick is a close friend and admirer of Urban Meyer. That’s why it’s no surprise to learn Belichick is nearly as big a Tim Tebow fan as Florio.
“There’s not another quarterback in the league who have Tim Tebow’s skills,” Belichick said Wednesday via the Boston Herald.
When a reporter mentioned that Tebow is unorthodox as a passer, Belichick responded: “Yeah, I don’t agree with any of that.”
Belichick loves to shower praise on opponents, and this week is no different. He stressed that the Broncos are more than a one-man team and the defense is playing extremely well. Hard to argue there.
Both Belichick and Tom Brady know how tough it is to play in Denver. The Broncos are the only NFL team with a winning record against the Belichick/Brady Patriots; Brady is 1-5 against Denver in his career.
If Plummermania and Ortonmania could handle the Patriots, this week should be no problem.
