New England a perfect spot for Tebow--FOX Sports: Like I have said before, I have been saying this since day one.
In his perfect NFL world, Tim Tebow would have the chance to compete for a starting quarterback spot in 2013.
This isn’t happening.
Thirty teams passed on signing Tebow following his April release from the New York Jets. Those franchises either didn’t think he was good enough to help them or weren’t interested in the media circus that Tebow always brings to town.
But if forced to settle for reality, Tebow couldn’t be entering a better situation than with the New England Patriots.
A head coach who knows how to nip media distractions in the bud? Check.
An offensive coordinator who has a history with Tebow? Check.
An elite starting quarterback from whom he could learn and help better his craft? Ditto.
Whether the Patriots keep Tebow exclusively behind center is really immaterial at this point. Even if he’s a reserve passer who gets snaps at tight end, H-back, fullback or becomes a core special teams player, Tebow has a chance to stay in the league for a fourth NFL season.
