Why Bring Tebow Mania to New England?

Tim Tebow (mynavigatornews.com)

With the New England Patriots signing QB Tim Tebow on Tuesday, many are wondering why the Patriot’s would be willing to sign a player that is still a work in progress and that also brings a huge media circus. The quick answer is simple, the Patriots do not get distracted, regardless of the situation or player. They simply never get flustered by the media or their opponent. The Patriots also love the fire, passion and leadership qualities he would bring to the team. In the recent past, the Patriots have taken on players that other teams were reluctant to sign, players such as Corey Dillon and Randy Moss. Both Moss and Dillion went on to have some of their best seasons in New England.

ESPN.COM‘s Tedy Bruschi believes the Patriots signed Tim Tebow because they love taking on projects. Bruschi goes on to speak about some of the Patriots most recent projects, including WR Julien Edelman and OT Stephen Neal. During college, Edelman was a QB and Neal was a wrestler.

The Patriots believe that this will be another successful project and that they can make Tim Tebow into a good QB, something the Denver Broncos and the New York Jets could not. “In Bill we trust” is a popular motto in New England, and Patriot fans will have to trust coach Bill Belichick and the Patriots organization on this signing. Regardless, the Patriots have nothing to lose as the salary hit is minimal. If the Patriots can take the time and develop Tebow, then who knows how great Tebow could be.

Many forget that Patriot great Tom Brady was once a project. Brady was drafted by the by the Montreal Expos in the 18th round in the 1995 MLB draft, then more notably Brady was drafted by the Patriots at 199th overall during the 6th round of the 2000 NFL draft.
