The word out of Foxboro lately is white smoke. Cardinal Bill Belichick is leading the conclave, and he has chosen to elect Tim Tebow to the team.
Tebow was never a serious contender for the Patriots' big job, which is tied up for the foreseeable future as Ponce de Leon Brady continues to show youthful resiliency.
The holiest QB in the NFL would be a good fit as a backup who never took the field except when there was an imminent danger of Tom Brady being killed.
Then, Tebow would be asked to use his influence with the Man Upstairs to provide a miracle. Usually the man upstairs is Robert Kraft, but in this case, any port in a storm.
What could possibly be the problem with signing Tebow and putting him on Paul Revere's horse to start each game?
You have just put your finger on the horse's nose and counted his teeth.
Cardinal Bill Belichick fears the circus will be coming to Foxboro for the foreseeable future with Tebow's entourage.
Belichick does not like what the Tarot cards are saying in the sideshow. His team will be distracted by a media circus.
If we have learned anything about the Patriot pontiff, he does not like noise, cacophonies, or any distraction from his pedestrian routine. Tebow offers feeding the masses with a couple of loaves and a fish.
Belichick would prefer fast food take-out.
