Love him or hate him, Bill Belichick is one of a kind. He can stop even the best reporter cold in their tracks with his one stop answers. The Tim Tebow media swarmed Foxboro to see if they can crack the master, but they will go home with the same quotes he says every time. “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, via Patriots.com. It’s the Belichick way and New Englanders are used to the hooded one’s chosen style of communication, direct and sometimes condescending. Belichick addressed the media today and again he was in rare form when it came to Tebow. “I don’t think evaluating players on a couple plays is really a good practice. We’ll wait until we have a little bit more information and make our evaluations as a staff, talk about players after a chunk of time, after we’ve had a chance to see things. Any player you put out there, the first day is a learning experience. As you do it the second, third, fourth time, just like when we all do anything multiple times we get better at it hopefully, get more experience, get more comfortable and do it better. I don’t think that’s any different than any football player at any position,” Belichick said. You have to love how he turns a Tebow question into a team response: Q: With a guy like Tim Tebow who has versatility and flexibility, would you want to try him at one position and then move him around and see what he can do, or would that vary from player to player? BB: Each player is different. Q: So there’s no formulaic way to start with him? You just say ‘We want you to learn this spot first and then after that, go from there.’ BB: You have to start somewhere. Where the starting point is, is what it is and then you grow to wherever you grow to. Q: Historically you’ve been buttoned up with the media, what advantages does that give your team? BB: You guys ask me a question and I try to answer it the best I can.
