Tebow greeted with typical New England stoicism, or not

Yeah, today’s going to be a bit of a circus.

But maybe the elements, if not Bill Belichick, will dampen the mood.

The locals were greeted for Tim Tebow’s first day at work with the Patriots with the cover of the Boston Herald, which featured a kneeling Tebow with the screaming headline: “GOOD GOD!

Fortunately it was Boston, where they’re more reserved, or else we’d have gotten extraneous exclamation marks.

Of course, if it’s expressive language you’re looking for, wait until after lunch.

Belichick is scheduled to talk at 10:45 a.m., prior to an 11:15 a.m. practice.

Players will be available for interviews at 1 p.m.

If the rain causes a certain someone to run shirtless off the field to those interviews, the NSA might not have enough server space to keep track of it all.

  1. Just what everyone needed, Tebow going somewhere even closer to espn’s headquarter!!!!

  2. The media complains about the “Tebow Circus ” but you guys are the creators . The guy has done nothing but answer the questions he has been asked . But without the non stories you guys create you would actually have to report on relevant and important topics. Good thing no one wants that. Created Circus about Tebow part 3 begins now .

  3. I’m waiting to see what happens when the typical nutjob that supports Tebow starts chanting for him to be put in in Foxboro. Watching real Pats fans react would be priceless.

  4. If he can make roster, watch out, it’s going to be an exciting year. But if I was betting, I’d bet he gets cut.

  5. I love the idea that the team that uses WR’s at CB and TE’s at RB….LB’s at TE….you name it…is going to strictly use this guy at QB.

    I’d bet he’s practicing at RB on the first snap of the day. No way Billy B has already decided all the ways he’s going to use him.

  6. Do you think this Tebow and quarterback is a PR move to lessen Tebowmania? If it were known Tebow was NOT playing QB, would the madness would be even greater?

  7. I am NOT at Patriots fan in any form and (b)never (/b) will be but I am glad Tebow is getting another chance on an NFL team. He probably won’t see the field during the regular season as long as Brady stays healthy but maybe now he will get the chance to have some extra coaching help while he waits for Brady to get injured or retire.

  8. HE’S A THIRD STRING QB WHO MAY OR MAY NOT EVEN MAKE THE TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    good god is right. Adrian Peterson, Tom Brady and Megatron, combined, don’t get 1/4 the press of this guy.

    what the hell happened to this world?

  9. There is something fundamentally wrong with a world where guys like Titus Young and Josh Brent are given every hope of being exonerated, rehabilitated, whatever you want to call it; yet there is a chorus of haters, so much so, that a guy like Tebow is gleefully forced out of the game because of the kind of “circus” he brings to the game.

    Yeah, he gets to join the Patriots. But the hate will continue.

  10. Good for you Tim, are all you haters doubting BB as a smart football man? Now what do you have to say?

  11. .

    Nothing to see here.

    Tebow is just one of 90 trying to make the 53 man roster. He’s no different than players in Seahawks or Buccaneers camp.

    .

  12. Lets break this down:
    Tebow knows the Jets offense and schemes
    Belichick cant vidoetape other teams practices anymore…..after picking Tebows brains, he gets cut from the team

  13. and i thought it was over… let us know anything else as soon as it comes up. We need to know.

  14. This is what Denver should have done–let Tebow sit behind an all-time great and if he can’t play QB after 2-3 seasons behind them, then he can’t play QB in the NFL.

  15. Tebow has at best a 50-50 chance of being on the roster by week 1. Sure make a big deal about a guy that can barely stay in the league.

  16. “If the rain causes a certain someone to run shirtless off the field to those interviews, the NSA might not have enough server space to keep track of it all.”

    Hah! Well said, Mr. Gantt.

    Best of luck to Tim Tebow and the New England Patriots. I’m far from a Patriot fan, but I hope Belichick gives him a chance to silence a lot of misplaced hate.

  17. Personally, I think this is all about Belichick’s ego. He would love to stick it to the Jets by showing them he knows how to use Tebow effectively when they didn’t have a clue.

    This is why the NFL is still the best reality show out there.

  18. Where Tebow is concerned, the media is the circus it seems to me. (Present company included)

  19. IF EVERYONE

    RESISTS the urge to comment on TEBOW articles.

    MAYBE, JUST MAYBE they will stop.

  20. Tim Tebow is a football player. Not neccessarily a QB, but a football player none the less. He can have a promising career doing his job or whatever is neccessary to help his team win. Now that can all go sour if the media (ESPN, PFT, NFLN and others), don’t treat it as such. Don’t let this be a circus or he will be released before preseason even starts. Leave the man alone to do his job, or you will ruin his career. Even as a Steelers fan, I’m rooting for the guy.

  21. This guy couldn’t beat out Mark Sanchez for a job. I really don’t understand the signing of this guy. Unless of course. they just brought him in to lead the team in prayer.

  22. I think Brady will enjoy actually having someone on the team that he can boss around. If Tebow weren’t such a godly man he probably wouldn’t let Brady get away with it, but we all know how nice he is… Brady can finally act like that big brother instead of getting bossed and pushed around in his Uggs all the time.

    All jokes aside, This was the best place for Tebow to go since being drafted. Thing is, It might just be too late for even a Coach like Belichick to fix Tebow’s wild playing style. He might just be way too set in his ways to begin a change, but I guess you can’t rule it out.

  23. New England just became the laughing stock of the league with this confounding signing.

  24. First of all…props to Boston Herald…nice headline. lol

    Second of all…props to the Patriots. You got a great football player (didn’t say QB) for CHEAP. No one really doubts he can contribute to a team…just that he’s not a starting QB and he brings media attention. If the Patriots can manage that process — and Belicheck is good at that — then they may have gotten a steal.

    Third of all — props to Tebow. He gets vilified because of all the media frenzy but really all he’s ever done “wrong” is being open about his Christianity. If he was open in some other way, no one would probably criticize him…weird. Other than that, he’s always come off as a good dude — team player, hard worker, supporter of the team. You’d think those would be good qualities.

    It will be fun to see what happens. I am not a New England fan but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t rooting for them a little bit…

  25. Wouldn’t it be great if Tebow makes the team as a personal punt protector and a specialist in short yardage situations?

    Then in the 2nd week of the season, the Jets play them tough and it comes down to a 4th and one at the one yard line and Tebow scores the game winning TD. Just imagine the howls out of NY if that were to happen.

  26. Props to the Pats! They ignore the anti-Christian/anti-white male conservative rhetoric from the left-wing media and sign a guy that they can use anywhere and who is a team player.

  27. I love it. Reminds me of a raw Steve young coming to sit behind the legend and between mallet and Tebow they got a replacement for Brady who Father Time is catching up to.

  30. Calling the Boston Herald a “liberal rag” kind of disqualifies a poster from the start.

  31. “The guy has done nothing but answer the questions he has been asked”

    you’re not allowed to use this as an excuse anymore, as per Florio…
