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. Practice over. Tebow horrendous. #patriotstalk -- Tom E. Curran (@tomecurran) July 26, 2013 Curran, of Comcast SportsNet New England, was echoed by the New York Post's Bart Hubbuch. Tebow just threw a wounded-duck screen pass and an interception on back-to-back snaps. Crowd is alternately groaning and laughing. -- Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) July 26, 2013 But Tebow caught passes from Tom Brady -- good sign for a team missing top tight ends Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski -- and showed he still could run it. Tebow just took off running for about a 40-yard gain to get the crowd back on his side. -- Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) July 26, 2013 Tebow also showed he still could duck dangerous questions -- about last season's Jets disaster and the Hernandez case -- as well as pray (for the families in the Hernandez case) and say the politically correct thing (though he didn't mention being excited). "I've got to keep improving every single day," Tebow told USA Today . "We'll go watch the film and we'll get better from it. But I felt good about the practice." But coach Bill Belichick didn't exactly give a vote of confidence to Tebow, who has a non-guaranteed, two-year contract. "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," Belichick told CBSBoston.com . H/T: Helmet2helmet
