Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow has a place in the NFL. That I'm sure of. Exactly what that place is? Still to be determined. But his landing in New England yesterday was a very savvy move by a smart franchise. Of course, he is of absolutely no threat to Tom Brady's starting job, but it's still a good landing spot for Tebow. Unlike Denver and with the Jets, there is no illusion that he is going to be the starter, and he can spend time getting NFL reps in practice with little pressure. It wouldn't be very much, but it wouldn't surprise me if Bill Belichick found a way to work him into the offense in some way. Brady should still be taking 100% of the reps during the game, but leave it to the Patriots to work up a scheme or gadget play to get a talent like Tebow involved. He's 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, athletic and mobile. Brady is the master of the 1-yard QB sneaks (seriously, look it up), so that wouldn't be the move. But something that got Tebow moving left with the option to throw? It would work, and the combination of Belichick and Josh McDaniels will figure out exactly how.
