Tim Tebow’s ‘Spirituality’ No Small Factor For Patriots Owner Robert Kraft
New England Boss A Big Fan Of Tebow The Man
June 13, 2013 8:59 AM

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The word in New England on Tuesday was “Tebow.”

The next day it was all about “spirituality.”

Coincidence? Not at all.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft said Wednesday that Tim Tebow’s faith-based makeup was a factor in deciding to bring the quarterback into the fold.

“He’s a winner, and the fact that spirituality is so important to him is very appealing to me,” Kraft said, according to CBS Boston.

The report included two more quotes with the word “spirituality.” Kraft was speaking from a charity event in honor of his late wife, Myra:

– “For me personally, having Tim Tebow on this team, he’s someone who believes in spirituality, he’s very competitive, works hard and has a great attitude.”

– “You can’t have enough good people around you, and (Tebow) has the added dimension of spirituality being so important to him, and that personally appeals to me a lot.”

Tebow was cut by the Jets in April after one disappointing season in New York. Many wondered whether he was through in the NFL — until the Patriots swooped in and signed him to a non-guaranteed two-year deal.

New England coach Bill Belichick has been mum on Tebow’s role, though with future Hall of Famer Tom Brady under center you can be sure there will be no QB controversy this time around.

“Watching Tebow throw yesterday, to me, he looked pretty good,” said Kraft. “It’s fun having him here. It’s nice to have three quarterbacks who can throw it really well.”

Kraft also channeled his inner Woody Johnson, the Jets owner who made headlines last year for saying “you can never have enough Tim Tebow.” Except Johnson was presumably talking about the football player. Kraft was speaking of the man.

“You can’t get enough people like him,” Kraft said, according to USA Today. “Life is about collecting good people around you. You can’t have enough good people.”

I think this is terrific.

God Bless the Patriots.  Robert Kraft is DANIEL of biblical times.

There he is...being totally ignored by the lions, while he's flipping double birds to the people in the stands...and New England Liberalism.


I heard John Feinstein's "One-minute sports" segment today, where he simply trashed Tebow.

He also pointed out that fans got on Ray Lewis when he mentioned the Almighty or made the sign of the cross...but because he was a superstar, well that made it alright.

He said the Tebow couldn't be a 2nd string quarterback on ANY NFL team...and because nobody else signed him, he's correct.

New England has their QBs there's no controversy. 

But to have the owner come out and say that Tim Tebow is a winner and that he welcomes the spirituality and feels that it will only enhance the team and organization.

....of course the publicity doesn't hurt.
