    • He will always have that magical run that took Denver to the playoffs in 2011 and then his 80-yard touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime in the wild-card victory over Pittsburgh, but the manner in which he was winning games did not predict sustainable success. There was one miracle after another, and Tebow used up his quota in one season.
    • At least now the Jets don’t have to be concerned about facing Tebow in the second game of the season four days after they open against Darrelle Revis. If Tebow was on the active roster for that Thursday night game in Foxborough, you know Belichick’s dislike for the Jets would have led him to find a way for Tebow to score.

       

        If Belichick had kept Tebow around, the player’s greatest value would have been in the locker room. The Patriots are still reeling from the murder indictment against Aaron Hernandez — New England quickly cut him in June after he was arrested — and Tebow is a terrific character guy. Then again, so is Brady, so that further diminished Tebow’s value. Belichick never played him at a position other than quarterback.
