Bill Belichick seems unfazed by Tim Tebow

Palm Beach, Fla. - Bill Belichick doesn't seem to be overly concerned that his biggest AFC East rival just traded for one of the most interesting, if not dynamic, players in the NFL. 

No, Belichick isn't preoccupied with Tebowmania. 

Asked this morning at a coach's breakfast during the NFL owners meetings what he thought about the Jets' trade for Tebow, Belichick responded, "I’m just concentrating on our team. Just trying to get better in the offseason like we always do.”

Just don't want to talk about it, coach? 

“I’m just trying to get ready with what we’re doing," Belichick said. "Not really worried about the other 31 teams right now.”

Prepared for the wildcat? 

“I really haven’t given it a lot of thought," he said. "Try to concentrate on our team right now, going through our team building, free agency, draft process, I think all teams are a long way from being where they’re going to be in July or August, regular season. So, let it play out. We’ll budget time for all those things, but right now, just trying to construct our team the best we can." 

Hmm. Maybe the fact that Belichick's Patriots smoked Tebow's Broncos in the playoffs has a little something to do with the fact that the coach isn't too worried about what's ahead for Jets-Patriots.
