The Sports Rocker:
Since Tim Tebow came into the NFL, he's been an attraction, like a circus sideshow. ESPN, rightly so, gets most of the blame for hyping Tebow. He hasn't started a regular season game in over a season, but yet everywhere he walks on a field, there are cameras following his every move as if he is actually the royal baby.Alas, ESPN isn't the only guilty party.While watching the NFL network today, they showed Tebow at Patriots training camp with a throng of reporters with microphones stuffed into his face like he was Tom Brady after a Super Bowl.'Don't believe me?Keep in mind this isn't a former Pro-Bowler looking to catch on with a new team or something akin to McNabb going to the Redskins. Nope. This is, for the most part, a career backup who will probably be listed as third on the depth chart at quarterback once the season begins.But for the Patriots though, considering their other problems, having Tebow as the main attraction is probably a welcome sight.

Tim Tebow: at Patriots Camp
We reported earlier that Patriots quarterback Tim Tebow was catching some passes with the backs and receivers.

Tebow apparently threw two interceptions during 11 on 11 drills, per Mike Reiss...
Sick to their stomachs over Aaron Hernandez, Patriots fans may find it a relief to start talking about how much Tim Tebow does or doesn't stink, and whether or not he'll make the New England Patriots.
Tebow opened camp Friday, and more than one observer was unimpressed.

Tim Tebow says the case in which Aaron Hernandez is charged with murder is heartbreaking and sad.
And he says his thoughts and prayers are with all the families involved.
Tebow spoke Friday after the first practice of the New England Patriots training camp. The quarterback played with Hernandez in college at Florida and at last month's Patriots minicamp before they cut the...
During today’s press conference, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was asked if Tim Tebow will be used primarily as a quarterback.
“I think that we’ll use Tim wherever we feel like he’s best for the team,” Belichick said, via NFL.com, “and I know that’s what he’s committed to doing, as well. Whatever that is.”
There have been some conflicting reports as to...
There are two big storylines at Patriots training camp, which started Friday, and the Pats are trying to put at least one of those behind them. The process of putting the Aaron Hernandez story in the rearview started Friday when practice got underway, and Tim Tebow will likely help that transition.
The quarterback is a lightning rod for controversy and debate, albeit for far different...
With the first two days of Training camp out of the way, the real fun begins. The pads goes on, the contact begins, and Bill Belichick still gives his daily run-arounds with the media. But that doesn't mean that everything is all fun and games now. There is a lot of good, don't get me wrong, but there is also a decent amount of bad.
1) Tebow better shape up... FAST
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick suggested Friday before the Patriots opening practice of training camp that Tim Tebow could be used at other positions besides just quarterback. “I think that we’ll use Tim wherever we feel like he’s best for the team and I know that’s what he’s

One training camp practice down.
The general takeaway from the media's observations was that this was one sloppy day. Tim Tebow threw two interceptions, but did catch a few passes. From all accounts, Ryan Mallet didn't look that great either.
A sloppy day for the whole team. What else would you expect of a rainy first practice of the year?
