Calling the reports ‘completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible,’ Bill Belichick clearly doesn’t ‘hate’ Tim Tebow as a player

In actuality, Tim Tebow is just the kind of player that Bill Belichick would like.

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick claimed reports that he “hates” Tim Tebow are “completely untrue.”

After attempting a measly eight passes and 32 runs in the swamps of Jersey, the 25-year-old Tebow was clipped by the New York Jets on April 29.

Now unemployed, many insiders predicted Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels would lure the 2007 Heisman Trophy earner to Foxborough as a free agent.

“I wouldn’t get into the probability of us pursuing any free agent. Every single player has strengths and weaknesses but regardless of that, for anyone to have represented that is the way I feel about Tim Tebow is completely untrue, baseless and irresponsible,” said Belichick, 61, a three-time NFL Coach of the Year. “It is unfortunate that something so inaccurate was reported.”

While the mastermind behind “Spygate” refused to say if New England would consider inking the embattled chucker, Belichick clearly doesn’t “hate” the 6-foot-3, 235 pound Tebow as a player.

Throwing 17 touchdowns, against nine picks, for 2,422 yards in 14 starts, Tebow guided the Denver Broncos to a 7-4 mark and a playoff victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in January 2012.

Although never to be confused with Johnny Unitas, the consistently successful Tebow is a proven winner on both the collegiate and professional levels.

Hence, an accomplished man like Belichick would certainly respect a virgin strictly focused on football.

Whether it is for an NFL, CFL or AFL franchise, Tebow is an upstanding human being built to prevail on the gridiron.

Like all athletes, Tebow “has strengths and weaknesses.”

“Regardless of that,” Tim Tebow can make a solid NFL employee if given a legitimate opportunity.
