5 ways Tim Tebow could win the Patriots starting QB job

Zombies, aliens or acts of God could all help the former Denver quarterback.

AS YOU’VE PROBABLY heard by now, the New England Patriots are about to sign Tim Tebow after an ill-fated spell with the New York Jets.

While there are some who believe Bill Belichick will use Tebow as a hybrid tight end/running back, the fact the Pats released their third string quarterback Mike Kafka suggests he will have a chance to compete for the starting job.

Of course, that’s currently held by three-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady so how can Tebow, widely derided for his inaccuracy, hope to get the gig?

Here are a five suggestions:

1. A super-villain lays waste to Foxboro

Maybe Bane could be the instrument of Tebow’s liberation?

2. Brady becomes the first high-profile victim of the zombie apocalypse

Zombies are a clear and present danger but a superstar like Brady is unlikely to be as prepared as the rest of us.

3. Alien abduction

If aliens were to abduct us before beginning their invasion do you think they’d choose you, me or a multi-millionaire-married-to-a-supermodel-high-profile-sports-star? Thought so.

4. An act of God

We know Tebow likes an old pray, whose to say someone won’t finally answer?

5. Playing better than Brady

Perhaps the least likely scenario seeing as he couldn’t even win the Jets starting job after Mark Sanchez produced the ‘butt fumble’.
