Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Tim Tebow was less than stellar under center.
The Patriots conducted their first training camp practice on Friday, and Tebow, operating at quarterback, didn’t have the best outing, according to multiple reporters.
Tom Curran of Comcast SportsNet New England says that Tebow looked “horrendous,” throwing a one-hop pass and an interception in back-to-back sequences.
The New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch notes that a “wounded-duck screen pass” had the crowd “groaning and laughing.”
To be fair, it wasn’t all bad for the former Jets’ punt protector.
Tebow caught some passes in drills and lined up with the running backs and receivers. The highlight of his morning came on a 40-yard run, which helped get the crowd “back on his side.”
“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 committed to doing as well, whatever that is,” head coach Bill Belichick said, via CBSBoston.com.
Not exactly a huge vote of confidence there. Tebow is hardly a lock to make the Patriots’ final roster, and can’t afford to have too many more days like today.

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...
One day of practice with the New England Patriots and people are already starting to pick on Tim Tebow. Is this fair? The guy has just got there and he can clearly help this team play football. With the arrest of Hernandez and the back surgery Gronk went under, The Patriots are missing 2 of their best weapons for Brady to throw to. Tebow showed he can catch a pass from Brady and...
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...
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?
