    I'm rolling my eyes because u are a suck up.

    Belichick isn't God, the media has rattled him before, and it remains to be seen how he will handle Tebowmania.

    When has he been rattled? Belichick didn't blink an eye when the SpyGate media descended on him in 2007, or in the 7 Super Bowls he's been a part of. Belichick seriously doesn't give a **** about any of this. He'll never crack... and if he's even thinking about cracking, he'll simply cut Tebow, end story.

    Ray, I promise you I hate BB and TB as much as anybody here. Even Kraft. I think they are dooshbags. But that does not cloud my judgement that as a franchise they are as stable as any I have ever seen. Of course there is a chance this all blows up. There is always a chance. But I think that is microscopic. If there is one franchise that can handle this it is the Pats. The Pats will not do anything to jeopardize themselves. If Tebow becomes a distraction he will be gone.

    This will be Tebow's last shot b.c if the Pats can't handle it, I don't think any other team is going to try.

    Ray is a tool. What rational human being would seek approval of a garden hoe?

    I'm curious ... What do you & the Patsfans see as the potential benefit to even take that chance?

    Don't ask what's in the hot dog, just eat it. BB has earned the right to make insane moves.

    First let me say that I agree with the notion that part of the reason they did this was to throw Urban Meyer a bone. Also, lets just say the NFL is happy Tebow is on a team. And BB trying to stick it to the Jets can never be overlooked.

    That said, I admit, the benefit will probably not be great. But for argument's sake say he works with McDaniels for a year and improves his mechanics and throwing. Maybe next year they trade him for a 4th or 5th rounder. Crazier things have happened.

    In the meantime he will probably be their PP and 3rd string QB.

    The Pats did not give up what the Jets did to get Tebow. They have nothing invested in him. They can and will cut bait if he isn't worth it.

    When you can stop people from asking questions, then you're in control. He was asked about Tebow, he mumbled. Thats not control

    Of course he has control. It's a big FU to the questioner.
    Same as is done at the White House briefings. And go too far and you are ignored for weeks. Pretty standard stuff in any line of work.
    BB is running the pressers, not the media. He really doesn't care about PR until Kraft tells him to, if then.

    The Pats are basically the NFL's version of the porn industry for washed-up or troubled actresses.

    I guess BB thinks tommy is getting too old to play more than 3-4 snaps per series. A young buck like Tebow will make a difference.

    I like it; geniusery.

    Perhaps, just perhaps, his new position is the team chaplain?

    Clearly they're bringing him in as a personal kickoff protector. Which is genius. Not to be mistaken with the personal punt protector which was idiotic.

    WEll this is dominating sports talk and will garner the required attention for the NFL as desired. Never heard so much attention devoted to a 3rd string QB. But as to press conferences - BB handled this exactly as predicted, saying Tebow will be used in whatever way is best for the team, and he shut down the questions after the same ones were repeated over and over, saying simply that the issue was already addressed and let's move on.

    The Pats situation is very unique. Their HC, QB and owner triforce is the strongest in NFL history. Belichick is Kraft. Brady is Belichick. One voice. Players fall in line or they GTFO. No team is built to handle this like the Patriots are. The Pats players will all toe the company line. The media might be persistent (although I think they will give it up eventually) but the moment BB feels it is hurting the team he will cut bait.
    New England just signed a 3rd string QB who can't throw and brings unwanted media attention. It's already a bad move, and Patriot fans and everyone else knows it.

    You can probably call me a lot of things, a suck-up isn't one of them.
