Flutie Believes in Tebow

Although different in physique and style, there are few who understand the plight of Tim Tebow better than Doug Flutie. Both former Heisman winners are unconventional quarterbacks, constantly doubted, yet pure "winners."

Moreover, both now know what it is like to back up Tom Brady's on  Bill Belichick's New England Patriots.

With that perspective, Flutie has been adamant that Tebow can have a future as a quarterback for the Patriots, albeit not during game-time as long as Tom Brady is healthy.

We’ve seen glimpses . . . there’s potential there,” Flutie said of his fellow Heisman Trophy winner. “It’s consistency, and that’s what they’re working at, to get it down. So, there’s potential there. Bill sees it and wants to work with him and give him every opportunity. You can win with those kind of guys on your team, the guys who are going to bust their tails off and do what’s asked. You can live with that, even if it doesn’t really pan out as a quarterback down the road. But I’m not counting it out.” - See more at: http://bostonherald.com/sports/patriots_nfl/new_england_patriots/2013/08/flutie_tim_tebow_s_unique#sthash.fKW46BOt.dpuf

"We've seen glimpses... there's potential there," the diminutive former quarterback said of his fellow Heisman winner. "It's consistency, and that's what they're working at, to get it down. So, there's potential there. Bill sees it and wants to work with him and give him every opportunity. You can win with those kind of guys on your team, the guys who are going to bust their tails and do what's asked. You can live with that, even if it doesn't really pan out as a quarterback down the road. But I'm not counting it out."

Flutie provided insight into what New England wants to do with Tebow and said the organization is focused on coaching up the quarterback. He also added that while Tebow could line up and catch passes for the Patriots, it is far too late for him to learn the tight end position at this stage in his career.
