Happy to see Tim Tebow get another shot at the NFL. New England didn't sign him to attract attention, or to show up the New York Jets, who allowed Tebow to dangle as a distraction last season before tehy jettisoned him.
I have no idea if Tebow is an NFL quarterback. I don't know if he's a reliable backup or somebody a team brings in as a chance of pace.
I respect Tebow much more than I respect his game. Met him through a mutal friend in Florida, and Tebow was gracious and unpretentious and curious and really big.
The overt religious acts, which are part of who he is, are neither a big deal nor offensive.
So welcome back to the NFL, Tim. Whether it works or not, you'll get your chance, and Rex Ryan won't be involved.
What New England coach Bill Belichick does better than any other coach is honor his committment to his reserves. If he says, "You'll play in this situation," you'll play in that situation, regardless of how close the score is.
If Belichick tells Tebow he'll get a chance, Tebow will get a chance.
For what more can Tebow ask?
