Bill Belichick Refuses to Succumb to Tebow-Mania

Bill Belichick

Stew Milne- USA TODAY Sports

For the second straight day, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was able to divert questions related to new acquisition Tim Tebow.  Yesterday, Belichick described Tebow as a talented and smart player that works hard. After reporters asked a 14th consecutive question relating to Tebow, an annoyed Belichick expressed, “I think we’ve already talked enough about him… I think I’ve covered it. Anything else?”

When a reporter today inquired about refining Tebow’s passing game, Belichick cunningly told the media that he will not provide constant updates on Tebow.

“Like I said, we’re not going to get into a minute-by-minute evaluation of a player. I don’t think that’s the way to go, especially at this time of year,” Belichick said.

Then, Belichick provided an even more crafty response to a question about Tebow.  Pressed by a reporter how Tebow looked in his first day of training camp, Belichick responded:

“I think everybody out there is pretty much in the same boat: just trying to get better day by day. Some guys are starting at different points; he’s obviously starting at a point different than where other players were. They’re all moving along. Guys that are out there are making progress. Guys that aren’t are doing what they can do and they’re falling behind.”

For a question strictly on Tebow, Belichick was able to slyly provide a response about the whole team. He will continue to deter any unnecessary Tebow media coverage. He refuses to let “Tebow-mania” become a distraction to the team. Simply put, Belichick is too smart of a coach to let the Tebow coverage become a disruption in the clubhouse.
