On Friday night August 16, the New England Patriots offense was rolling. According to Top10+1, "Tom Brady looked "Hall Of Fame" worthy. Then the second half started. Tim Tebow received his chance to play the entire 30 minutes, yet he didn’t pick up 30 combined yards.
The Patriots only second half touchdown came on a Logan Ryan interception midway through the third quarter. Otherwise, the Patriots couldn’t move the ball at all. Tim Tebow only completed 1 of 7 passes in the whole half. His passing stats were a total of negative one yard. In fact, his only shine was on his six carries. Tebow rushed for 30 yards.
The only way this effort can help Tim Tebow in the future is if he gets better. There are times he looks so uncomfortable in the pocket. Just as a reference, Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett completed 23 passes for 244 yards in the first half.
If anyone was thinking that Tim Tebow might overtake Mallet as the second string quarterback, you can forget about those plans.
Although Tim Tebow looked much more like a quarterback than a fullback, the results still weren’t there. Tebow will have one more preseason game to show what he can do in the passing game.
