    It drove me nuts all the talk that Tebow was done.  Today, it made me smile that he's signing with the Patriots.  I wish him success and if Brady goes down this year, I'll watch every Pats game to see Tebow play:)

      I don't want anything to happen to Brady, but would love to see Tebow get some time.

        Y, I don't like to see anyone go down. Looks like he will compete with Mallet for backup spot.

        I see tebow winning a SB as a starter in 3 years

          Brady has a 5 yr contract, so he can't be the starter until then. NE and Denver are strong contender in the AFC this coming season, so who knows he might get a ring smile

            Y, but that puts Brady at 40 years old by the end.  I'd be very surprised if he can stay healthy over that period.  If Tebow beats out Mallet, he'll get some pt.

              Like what they said above, Belichick will use him in some other ways, but I like him to play again as QB and prove himself more. Guess everybody is waiting and excited when he showed up for the camp. I read it somewhere that the owner Kraft really like Tebow.

      according to various sources, Tebow is only going to be the 3rd thring quarterback, so even if Brady gets hurt, it doesn't guarantee tebow will replace him.

      However, I do agree with all the analysts that more than likely we'll see Tebow play out of position more often at tight end and running back, as Bill Billichick is infamously known for making guys play out of position on various occasions.  Plus, they mentioned that the two tight ends for the patriots are injured, and tebow is a natural athlete, and he has the bulk to play that position, so don't be surprised if you see tebow play tight end a little bit, as i think he'd rock that position.

      If anything, I predict Bill will probably use Tebow in more of a slasher role in vain of how Bill Cowher used to use Kordell Stewart for a while for the Steelers.

      I'm glad that he's finally back on an NFL team.  I hope that he gets a lot of playing time, and proves himself to be a very useful player.  I dislike the Pats, but this will give me something to pull for with them.

      Tebow is a decent player. The move to the Pats is an excellent move for his career because he will be in a position to improve his mechanics as a qb by being under one of the best to play that position. I've stated that tebow needed to be under a veteran.

        It is a good place for him.  I think that he will be used a good deal, in different positions, and situations.  He also, as you said, can learn from one of the best in the business, Tom Brady.

    I know how much you love Tebow Paul, the kid is a good person/athlete, he's just not a quarterback. Dont think he will see much playing time, except maybe versus the Jets, there is so much bad blood between the Pats and Jets, I think they would use him just to make a point. The Pats may try to use him in the slot to replace Welker. That kid Armendola can't seem to stay healthy.

    I was just having a discussion tonight about Bellichek's decision. I live in Massachusetts and many die-hard Pat's fans are shocked. I am thrilled that Tebow is here. It's going to be fascinating to watch what Bellichek is up to. Although as usual, he's not giving anything up. Of course I still wish the NFL had given Doug Flutie a fair chance.

    Ha. I don't lime the pats that much either, but if Tebow plays, ill be a fan.

    Lets see ...Tebow has been looking for work in the NFL since being cut by New England on Aug. 31.

    Sept. 16 - A group of Jags fans held a rally to get the team to sign Tebow. (Almost) no one showed up

    Sept. 19  - Russian football team: 'Negotiations still under way' with Tim Tebow. As of yet no one from the Tebow camp has spoken, but if he is indeed interested in playing football in Russia we’ll likely know soon, considering the league’s championship game is on Sept. 28, CBSSports.com reported.

    Tim Tebow finally has a home? Hmm for sure it aint in the NFL.

      hmm..that's a crying shame.  I'm not sure what happened with tim tebow, but i'm surprised he wasn't more open to playing other positions other than quarterback.   i think he would've worked out great in new england had he been more receptive to playing more of a slasher role similar to what kordell stewart used to play for the steelers before becoming their official starting quarterback.

      i mean with his body, i can easily imagine him playing a running back, tight end, or a cornerback possibly.  and with billichick being infamously known for making guys plays different positions than they're accustomed to, i was fairly dead certain that he'd be in some sort of slasher role for the new england patriots this year.  oh well. i guess that just goes to show you that what happened that one year with tebow in denver was a fluke.  sad really because i think he was a nice guy, but he just lacked the talent to play that one position he starred in college.

        number2sonposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        I agree.  I think that he needed, and still needs to realize that he just might not be signed as a quarterback, and would be better off trying to get in any way he can.

      Come on wavegirl22!  I sure hope the Giants and Jets stink this year!

    I'd really like for Tebow to find a place to play. If he does, I'll be watching.

      Besides, the league could really use some positive press regarding personnel.

      Your wanting Tebow to play in the NFL is kinda like my wanting the Jets to win the Superbowl sometime in the near future. It aint happening on either counts.

      As for Tebow, The Broncos gave him a choice before they made the trade: The neon lights on Broadway or his hometown Jaguars? Tebow picked the Jets, It was a miscalculation on his part. He should have gone to Jacksonville when he had the chance.

      As of now Tebow’s time in New York will be remembered for the circus that came to town. From the start there was massive obnoxious coverage from the first moments of training camp to every post game show on when or if Tebow would get some playing time. All the secret plays that were to come, oy was it painful to have to hear over and over again.
      Finally the Jets released him and he was traded to the Pats. Many in NY thought Belicheck was going turn Tebow into the Jets worst nightmare. Rex has one less thing now to keep him awake for New England cut Tebow last month after the quarterback failed to impress in the preseason.
      When the Patriots cut him Tim took to twitter

      This past Monday some Jaguars fans tried to make Tim's dream come true and staged a rally urging ownership to sign him.
      To some this may sound like some serious home town fan support. Only problem was that the rally consisted of less than two dozen people, some bearing signs with the uninspiring message, "Jags. Tebow. Why not?"

      23 people and one baby showed up for the Tebow Rally.

      Looks like Tebowmania is officially over.

        You're definitely right that he should have went to the Jaguars. 
        By the way, yes he was cut by the Jets, but he wasn't traded to the Pats.  He was signed by them as a free agent. 

        Also, it's still too early to say that Tebowmania is over, despite all of his recent setbacks.

    Why all the Tebow hate? All the guy does is win! He may not throw like Tom Brady, but Tom Brady doesn't run like Tebow! Tebow isn't your typical "quarterback", he is a fullback that can throw the ball 60 yards. When he runs to the flats, cornerbacks want no piece of him! That is why he is effective, he can lower his shoulder and punish smaller defenders, and outrun the bigger ones. A skill we really haven't seen accept from Cam Newton.  You can't compare Tebow to a typical "mobile" quarterback usually fast QBs are usually smaller and not known to lead shoulder first into tacklers.

      I agree with you.  However, his passing is not at the level that it needs to be at.  If he wants to get back to being a starting quarterback, he's going to have to become a better passer.

    PS: I am a cowboy fan so no tebowmania here. I just speak the facts. Wow didn't realize "tebowmania" is actually a word now lol when I put the two words apart it told me the spells was wrong with the red line! Ha!
