Belichick backs Tebow but only so much
Remember that Yahoo Sports report that said New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick hates Tim Tebow as a player? Well according to Belichick that couldn’t be further from the truth. The Tebow faithful will now start to think the Patriots have interest in their guy. Unfortunately for them they need to slow their roll, that’s not happening anytime soon.
“I wouldn’t get into the probability of us pursuing any free agent,” Belichick told ESPN Boston. “Every single player has strengths and weaknesses, but regardless of that, for anyone to have represented that is the way I feel about Tim Tebow is completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible. It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported.” (Boston Herald via ESPN Boston)
So there you have it Belichick doesn’t hate Tebow but then again he’s not letting on if he has any interest in him as a free agent. He just simply wanted to clear the air. Guess he didn’t think about all the hype that could come from it now.
