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.

    How disgusting!

    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 .

    Ryan Mallet is safe as #2 quarterback on the depth chart.

  5. pilot2011 says: Jun 11, 2013 7:30 AM

    well I guess it is kind of ironic that Tebow has ended up with the 3 un-Godliest cities in the US

  6. stugie says: Jun 11, 2013 7:31 AM

    You are the media circus!

  7. logicalvoicesayz says: Jun 11, 2013 7:37 AM

    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.

  8. oldcat157 says: Jun 11, 2013 7:39 AM

    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.

  9. raiderufan says: Jun 11, 2013 7:43 AM

    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.

  10. oldcat157 says: Jun 11, 2013 7:43 AM

    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?

  11. exboomer says: Jun 11, 2013 7:47 AM

    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.

  12. spideysdog says: Jun 11, 2013 7:52 AM

    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?

  13. mlenenski says: Jun 11, 2013 7:53 AM

    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.

  14. Patriot42 says: Jun 11, 2013 8:05 AM

    I believe the Jets are just hoping he doesn’t come back and becomes a hero in stomping them the next time the Pats play them.

  15. chut26 says: Jun 11, 2013 8:07 AM

    Why couldn’t Tebow just fade away

  16. kerryc21realty says: Jun 11, 2013 8:09 AM

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

  17. 6ball says: Jun 11, 2013 8:12 AM


    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.


  18. thedoubleentandres says: Jun 11, 2013 8:13 AM

    Get rid of Wes Welker then sign Timothy Tebow….Shrewd buisness being done in New England

  19. buffalo75vette says: Jun 11, 2013 8:13 AM

    Tebow is just being used. He will be cut way before the season starts..

  20. trollingforjustice says: Jun 11, 2013 8:14 AM

    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

  21. butterstone84 says: Jun 11, 2013 8:17 AM

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

  22. logicalvoicesisnotlogical says: Jun 11, 2013 8:18 AM

    Watch your back Brady lol

  23. rcbn says: Jun 11, 2013 8:22 AM

    I can see the headlines now! BOSTON STRONGER! “Ye without sin cast the first Football”.

  24. melissata says: Jun 11, 2013 8:26 AM

    Maybe Tebow agreed to lay hands on Gronk and heal him.

  25. johnnyjagfan says: Jun 11, 2013 8:28 AM

    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.

  26. isphet71 says: Jun 11, 2013 8:32 AM

    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.

    “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.

  28. bmoritz2003 says: Jun 11, 2013 8:36 AM

    Gotta admit, the last line made me chuckle.
    I can’t stand the Pats, but this is a good move by them.

  29. vincentbojackson says: Jun 11, 2013 8:37 AM

    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.

  30. 44mpo says: Jun 11, 2013 8:37 AM

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

  31. packhater1 says: Jun 11, 2013 8:38 AM

    On top of this, Skip Bayless head will explode today…fml

  32. myspaceyourface says: Jun 11, 2013 8:39 AM


    RESISTS the urge to comment on TEBOW articles.

    MAYBE, JUST MAYBE they will stop.

  33. packerbackernj says: Jun 11, 2013 8:42 AM

    Proxy aervers rule.

  34. rcbn says: Jun 11, 2013 8:42 AM

    I can see the headlines now! BOSTON STRONGER! “Ye without sin cast the first Football”.

  35. greglloydrules says: Jun 11, 2013 8:43 AM

    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.

  36. tatatoothy says: Jun 11, 2013 8:46 AM

    That headline by the Boston Herald is offensive. Typical for a liberal rag, but still offensive.

  37. jdubkc says: Jun 11, 2013 8:47 AM

    Can’t wait for the movie!

  38. lolo376 says: Jun 11, 2013 8:48 AM

    Hope he gets cut today

  39. sanitytrek says: Jun 11, 2013 8:55 AM

    It’s obvious Belicheat is trying now to have God cheat for him!!! Pathetic.

  40. titknocker says: Jun 11, 2013 8:59 AM

    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.

  41. EJ says: Jun 11, 2013 9:02 AM

    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.

  42. unionjack1776 says: Jun 11, 2013 9:03 AM

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

  43. baddegg says: Jun 11, 2013 9:07 AM

    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…

  44. triplehops says: Jun 11, 2013 9:32 AM

    No way they were gonna use a photo of Tebow in a Jets jersey…

  45. ozymandias121 says: Jun 11, 2013 9:43 AM

    Someone take him to a back alley already please!

  46. whatjusthapped says: Jun 11, 2013 10:14 AM

    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.

  47. dryzzt23 says: Jun 11, 2013 10:19 AM

    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.

  48. hehateme2 says: Jun 11, 2013 10:31 AM

    When did “reality” get confused with hate?

  49. sfniners4life says: Jun 11, 2013 10:58 AM

    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.

  52. tigerlilac says: Jun 11, 2013 11:37 AM

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

  53. starchybunker says: Jun 11, 2013 11:40 AM

    “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…

  54. edithpiaf51 says: Jun 11, 2013 9:05 PM

    i just hope Bellichik uses Tebow and treats him fairly, unlike the jets
