"They've pretty much used him at every spot. He's played more quarterback than anything else, but he's also played running back, I would say tight end, he's also played a little bit of receiver," Belichick said of Tebow’s offensive duties. "They put him in some different spots. When he's the quarterback, he's the quarterback, he can run, he can throw, he can run the option, he can run their regular offense. They can run Tebow-type plays that Denver ran last year, or that (offensive coordinator Tony) Sparano ran when he was in Miami."
"He gives them a lot of versatility in all of those things," Belichick noted. "He doesn't always line up at quarterback when he's in there on offense, so you have to be ready to deal with him at other positions as well. He's a good runner, he's a strong runner, very strong. He's mobile in the pocket, (a) smart player, he can do a lot of different things. Different option plays and things like that, so you certainly have to be aware of him when he's in there."
"And in the kicking game, he's dangerous because of the versatility, but it's really no different than any other punting situation in that you have to cover the eligible receivers," he said. "You have to be alert for them to snap the ball to the personal protector, and whether he ends up on a sweep or however they do it, those are things that you have to prepare for every week with your punt return unit.
"The fact that it's him and he's a big strong guy who's a good runner and can throw the ball makes it -- he can do a little bit more than a lot of guys that are back there," Belichick continued. "But at the same time, those are the kind of things you have to prevent every week. Whoever's responsibility it is to cover the guy has got to cover. If they run it, then we have to have our gaps controlled."
"Absolutely, there's really no question about it," he said. "We saw him play last year. He quarterbacked that team to the playoffs, Denver. In addition some to the quarterbacking things, he's done a lot of other things with the Jets, so, yeah, of course he's a valuable guy."
