Belichick and Tebow Meet in the Secret Underground Lair
As reported by Adam Schefter, Florida Quarterback Tim Tebow has been in New England the past two days working out for the Patriots and even taking a trip to Bill Belichick’s fortress of solitude and dining with Tim Tebow.
To say this is saying a lot is an understatement. Bill Belichick has always been on the record with his praise of Tim Tebow. At the owner’s meeting, he was on the record of saying that “it’s obvious that within the last six weeks, that he’s worked on his
mechanics and they’ve improved, which is a credit to him.” He’s also (according to Belichick) “coachable” and “athletic”. It’s also known that Belichick and former and current Florida coach Urban Meyer are good friends who talk a lot about football. As far as people go, Belichick is one of the most closed people in the NFL, so to see him make such sparkling comments and even dine with Tim Tebow must be pretty telling.
All signs continue to point towards the Patriots drafting Tim Tebow with one of their three picks in the second round and there would be plenty of mixed feelings about it. On one hand, Tebow is one of the smartest, hardest working players to come out of the draft in quite some time. It would seem as if nothing would stand in Tebow’s way of reaching the top of his game.
On the other hand, he’s raw. The fact that he still must work on his mechanics before entering the NFL draft means that he may have been getting by on sheer athleticism alone in college. As of now, he is not ready to be a long term NFL quarterback. That is, however, another reason the Patriots are so damn intriguing. They don’t NEED a quarterback, they have one and a damn good one in Tom Brady. In fact, all Tebow would be with a draft pick is a project they would build to be a quarterback and who could also still be used in some special packages this year designed to toy with the defense.
I know people who would have a problem with the pick, and I know people who would love the pick. Then their are people in between. With three picks in the second round, you can take a chance on a player that could eventually be a star. Is Tebow that guy? He might be, he might not be. That’s why far and away, when and where Tim Tebow goes will be the story of the 2010 NFL draft.
Until Next Time
P.S: Would this story be funnier if they met on Easter?
