Bill Belichick was asked if Tim Tebow was moving in the right direction and said he definitely was. Often considered short with the media, Belichick still makes a habit of dropping something worth giving a second thought.
Here's what he told Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com on quarterback production:
“I think the passing game is still the passing game,” Belichick said. “But all players have different skill sets. Some guys do some things better than others. You have to look at the total package and what they’re able to do in all areas of the game. I think we see a lot of good quarterbacks in the NFL, they aren’t all maybe the best passers but their ability to run and pass, and make plays however they make them, . . . makes them a high-level player.
“I don’t think there is one specific style you have to have, or don’t have to have. In the end, it’s about production and being able to do enough things to be successful.”
