No, don't tell me, no, please no, not again...
Just filed to ESPN: The Patriots are signing QB Tim Tebow and expect him to be in minicamp tomorrow— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) June 10, 2013
Thanks for ruining the 2013 NFL season Bill Belichick. Thanks a lot.
This is probably the best situation (media wise) if he was going to be on an NFL roster. No one will be expecting/wanting him to replace Brady, and Belichick isn't going to give the media the TMZ access that the Jets did. I remember Ochocinco, Albert Haynesworth, Randy Moss, etc were all high profile, high media players and they just became one of the 53 in New England. No one cared that Ochocinco was playing in the Super Bowl two years ago.
Sure, ESPN will still report what Dunkin Donuts he ate breakfast at, but I think things will die off when Brady keeps throwing for 3 TD's a game.
ESPN was real quick to label this news as an "ESPN Report". Hopefully they can learn to to the same when news breaks on other outlets and give them credit. Doubt it though.
Hopefully you get Mike Wilbon's reaction to this from PTI tonight; mocking the ESPN-Tebow fixation already by calling for 24-HOUR SURVEILLANCE and wanting to go to OTAs before the show was over
