Tim Tebow has arrived in New England. As if the entire sports world hadn’t noticed. In New York, Tebow’s arrival meant controversy and chaos, but the Patriots, and Bill Belichick‘s mundane style, tamed that beast before it was even unleashed from its cage. Now, the biggest question for the cult hero is whether he can actually play. Tebow looked pretty raw during his first few practices with the Patriots, but two days in a new system won’t yield impressive results from any player nevermind one with such clear mechanical issues.

Time For The Tim Tebow/New England Patriots Marketing Juggernaut!
