Tim Tebow reportedly struggles again; Patriots fans chant for Tom Brady
After struggling in his first official practice with the New England Patriots, Tim Tebow reportedly showed more of the same on Saturday. Various Patriots beat writers who watched practice said that Tebow and Tom Brady both struggled in 11-on-11 passing drills and that several balls were batted down. However, Brady is not trying to prove himself to the fans.
According to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe, Tebow took at least 10 seconds to do make a decision with the ball at one point during 11-on-11 drills. This did not please the fans in attendance at Gillette Stadium, and they reportedly began sarcastically chanting, “Brady! Brady!”
The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin confirmed the play where Tebow held the ball for 10 seconds and described his performance as “horrible.”
On Friday, Tebow caught a few passes in practice but those who watched him said he was terrible throwing the ball. While many people think it’s insane to criticize Tebow just two days into training camp, you have to remember that he is hardly a lock to make the Patriots 53-man roster. The time to impress the coaching staff is early on in camp, and he clearly has been unable to do that out of the gate.
