Broncos Vs. Patriots: Bill Belichick Won't Give Broncos Any Extra Motivation

In recent weeks, opposing teams have been doing their best to try and belittle what the Broncos had going with Tim Tebow. From calling him a running back to saying the offense was 'crap', the intimidation game, or simple lack of respect, has been running rampant from Broncos opponents.

Don't expect the New England Patriots to fall for it.

Have already received glowing reviews from quarterback Tom Brady and owner Robert Kraft, Tim Tebow's most recent admirer from the northeast is Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who was his usual self in talking with the media about Tebow, the Broncos and Sunday's game.

"Obviously, the Broncos are doing a good job of playing complementary football — offense, defense and special teams, " Belichick said. "They've made some key plays when they had to ... It's good team play and Tim has done a great job for them in the running game, handling the offense, throwing the ball, getting the ball down the field, also taking what the defense has given them."

That's right, complementary football was mentioned.

Belichick also was quick to squelch any talk of Tebow's perceived inconsistent throwing motion.

"I don't agree with any of that. He's got some very good throws. As good as anybody you want to put in there."

Of course, it wouldn't be Belichick without a question - and answer - from the world of the obvious. When asked about the thin air in Denver, Belichick was quick to respond.

"Both teams will be breathing the same air."

Yes they will, Bill, yes they will.
