Kelly this is right up your Alley football talk -- -- Paris and nice guys finish last.
Must not have met Tim Tebow New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft is applauding -- spirituality and -- attitude.
Win a spot on his team now.
Nathan Whitaker is the co author of through my eyes and he is with this morning.
Welcome to the program.
OK so why all the other teams -- seem to wanna hire Tim Tebow.
Why the patriots do you think.
You know I think there were a couple of things that that made him a good fit for New England one is Bill Belichick is a master of finding guys who -- -- good football players who want to win games.
And using them in unique and creative ways and other teams have been locked into trying to make Tim exactly who they wanted to be.
And coach Belichick has has been good at doing just the opposite.
Taking their talents and making that work.
The other thing is is as Bob Kraft the owner of the patriots noted his wife a long time humanitarian before she passed in the last couple of years.
A lot for New England that community and mr.
Kraft I think was enamored with the fact that Tim is focused on that and that's very important and.
And anything -- since some of the other teams didn't want the controversy.
It may come with Tim Tebow but Bob Kraft didn't see -- -- controversy.
Right you know from an ownership standpoint from mister -- standpoint certainly not a controversy you know when you look at the things that make ten -- controversial.
Always saying the right thing always doing the right thing.
Being in the right place at the right time not getting into trouble.
Those those things that are are sadly controversial -- -- the folks.
But the other thing that that also New England with Bill Belichick.
Is just immune to you know if anybody decided to take out a billboard if -- decided to Pickett and suggested Tim should play Overton and Tom Brady which.
I'm not sure anybody's gonna be.
Racing to do that even those of us who love -- You know what coach Belichick system you know that he's not mean he's not ever going to to fall subject to let the folks out there.
-- what look what Bob Kraft had to say the owner having Tim Tebow on this team he's someone who believes in spirituality he's very competitive works hard has a great attitude.
He's all winter though there are plenty of people they're successful in the NFL who don't have particular great character.
Character matters that much and it.
You know I think it does Mike I've spent a lot of time with Tony Dungy and one of the things Tony said was he wasn't always necessarily looking for choir boys although he he really like two guys who try to do the right thing.
But at some point character is manifested on the field that that if you're not the right place doing the right thing if I can't rely on you to be in the right place on Friday night.
Cannot rely -- need to be on the right place -- on fourth and one around the -- well that's that good -- spread to the other teammates what it's gonna be so Anderson -- see.
How -- checked uses him he normally has great success.
You know without reclamation project in making congratulations and I hear you're right about what Tony Dungy come back on the show -- that's done.
Great thank you -- -- again.
