blocking his path to the locker room. Finally, a antworten

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tim Tebow walked off the practice field with no reporters blocking his path to the locker room. Finally, a few strolled up for a 90-second interview then moved on to longer chats with other Patriots. The media circus that surrounded him last season is gone. His uncertain future remains. Ten weeks into what could be his last shot at staying in the NFL, Tebow seems to be on the roster bubble. He is simply trying to make the team now, but has played poorly in two exhibition games. How poorly? His passer rating was 0.0 -- thats zero-point-zero -- in New Englands 25-21 win over Tampa Bay last Friday night. "You would definitely want to do better in some areas," said Tebow, the only quarterback the Patriots used in the second half vs. the Buccaneers. "Also, you have different things happen that you just try to handle the best way you can." He completed just one of seven passes for a loss of one yard, and had one interception on a badly overthrown pass. He was sacked twice on his first nine plays. But the lefty who has trouble reading defences and zipping passes did what he does best, running six times for 30 yards. A week earlier, in his debut, he was a bit better -- 4 for 12 for 55 yards with four runs for 31 yards in a 31-22 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Numbers may not lie, but coach Bill Belichick sees a larger truth. He watches Tebow at every practice, sees how diligently he studies and how dedicated he is in the weight room. And he sees some positive steps from the player traded by the Denver Broncos and cut by the New York Jets in a span of 13 months. "Yeah, definitely," Belichick said. "I think if you look at the entire week last week, that it will look different than the game did." Tebow could get another chance in the third preseason game on Thursday night against the Lions in Detroit. Thatll be five days before the mandatory roster cut to 75 players. The Patriots finish the exhibition schedule Aug. 29 against the New York Giants. The final cut to 53 comes two days later. Tebow, as expected, says hes not thinking about his prospects of sticking around. Grasping the New England offence is difficult enough. "I just focus one day at a time," he says, "improving every single practice." Its not even an issue? "Just getting ready for the practice," he says with a smile. Belichick has been typically reticent. The Patriots signed Tebow for a reason, of course, and though New England often carries just two quarterbacks, the veteran coach is unfazed by preseason results. Asked last week if he plans to keep Tebow, if healthy, on the 53-man roster, Belichick said, "Thats not anything that were ready to talk about right now. A lot of competition out there. Well see how it all plays out." There are some factors in Tebows favour. He could be used as a punt protector, forcing opponents to play for a fake on a direct snap. He could line up as a receiver, pose as a decoy, or give Tom Brady a target for a quick pass to the sideline that he can run with. Hes played only quarterback in training camp drills, all open to the media, but could be used elsewhere now that the practices are open for just a short time period. With Tom Brady having thrown all but 47 of the Patriots passes the last four years and Ryan Mallett entrenched as the backup, coaches may view Tebow as a project with plenty of time to work on his quarterbacking skills without having to play in games. And would the Patriots really keep a sixth defensive end or sixth cornerback instead of him? But then, there are the negatives. The Patriots have kept just two quarterbacks in three of the past four years. Tebow tends to scramble too soon, without exhausting all options down the field. And when he does look down there, finding his third or fourth receiving option has been a problem. And then, of course, some throws have been well out of the receivers grasp. But Belichick is known for utilizing a players strengths even if he has glaring shortcomings. Thats the Patriot Way. "All players have different skill sets and some guys do some things better than others," he said. "I think we see a lot of good quarterbacks in the NFL. They arent all maybe the best passers, but their ability to run and pass and make plays -- design plays, scramble plays, whatever it is -- makes them a high level player. I dont think theres one specific style you have to have or dont have to have. "In the end, its about production and being able to do enough things to be successful." Tebow had success in Denver. He threw the winning pass on the first overtime play from scrimmage against Pittsburgh in the AFC wild-card round, before losing to New England the next week. He was a flop after the Broncos traded him to the Jets. New York never figured out how to use him and released him last April 29. From there, Tebow watched and waited. And just when it seemed no team wanted him, the Patriots gave him a non-guaranteed contract on June 10. But soon, Tebow may be looking for work ... again. "Ive just got to go out there and play as hard as I can and try to improve," he said. "And Ill let a lot of smarter people grade us and judge us." Jarrad Davis Youth Jersey . After not scoring 40 points in the opening quarter in the last five seasons, the Rockets have done it five times this season and twice in the last three games. Will Harris Lions Jersey . For Bergevin, the best pick is the 30th — which traditionally goes to the Stanley Cup winner. "Thats our goal. . Watching them over the past year - and in some cases, two years - has given us a starting point for this seasons Craigs List. Marvin Jones Jr Lions Jersey . Eller scored the midway through the third period after Dallas scored twice to tie it, leading Canadiens to a 6-4 win over the Stars on Thursday night. Jahlani Tavai Youth Jersey . "It was awesome," he said. Coming off an ugly three-game sweep at the hands of the Yankees, Toronto found itself in a deep hole early after the Reds put an eight spot up on starter Liam Hendriks (six runs in 1 2/3 innings pitched) and Todd Redmond in the second.The Vancouver Canucks broke out for three-second period goals en route to their fifth victory of the season on Sunday night, a 4-2 decision over the Washington Capitals. The Canucks were unable to solve Capitals goaltender Justin Peters early in the game, as he was stellar in turning aside all 14 Canuck first period shots. Meanwhile his Washington teammates got out to a sluggish start playing the second of back-to-back games, managing just six attempts at Canucks backstop Ryan Miller in the opening 20 minutes. Marcus Johansen opened the scoring for the Capitals just over five minutes into the middle frame but the Canucks were able to respond with three straight goals in a 2:47 span. Henrik Sedin tied it at 1-1 with a bank shot while on the power play, followed by markers from Nick Bonino and Luca Sbisa both with shots that beat Peters glove side. The Capitals would get one back just before the end of the second period as rookie Liam O’Brien scored his first NHL goal with a nifty redirect to make itt 3-2.dddddddddddd The final period would prove to be uneventful compared to the second stanza with Radim Vrbata providing the only scoring into the empty net with a minute to play securing a 4-2 win. Canucks netminder Ryan Miller was solid in stopping 20 of 22 shots to earn his fifth victory of the season while at the other end Justin Peters suffered his first regulation time loss after allowing three goals on the 33 shots he faced. It was the Capitals second loss of the season and the first time they’ve allowed more than 30 shots against in the young campaign. The Canucks were in need of a good result not only to open their three-game home stand on the right note but also because they had shown some concerning inconsistency in losing three of their last four games coming into the night. Vrbata, Bonino and Chris Higgins all had two point nights for the Canucks while Alex Ovechkin was held off the score sheet after registering 2 shots on net in nearly 22 minutes of ice time. ' ' '
