From the bios of each it seems that they were both at UF for the 2006-2007 school year.
My understanding was that Tebow's athleticism-measureables were already off the charts for any number of positions before his NFL draft to Denver. There were a number of athletes on that FL team that seemed extraordinary in the athleticism category. This Pfaff connection is not surprising. Tebows throwing arm strength and accuracy are another story and it is likely the cause of him getting a cold shoulder as an NFL QB from most NFL franchises. I could see him being very useful as a goal line QB and slash-player for NE.
I'm not saying there is no chance of any situation arising where he might be in a position to throw a pass or two, but BB is clearly not giving him a shot to come in and put up passes. Not with the likes of Brady and Mallett ahead of him. It would have to be, as you say, a situational qb opportunity, fb, h-back, or a te role they envision as possibilities for him.
I don't know if Romanowski is aware of the specifics of what TT has done with Dan though it sounded like it. He was saying athletically TT is at all time best physical condition right now and since it was suggested he's been in contact with Tim I assume that's coming from Tim himself though I don't know.
Beside the Belichick-Meyer connection there is also the Scot Loeffler-Tom Brady connection as Loeffler was qb coach for Brady at UM and Tebow at UF (his last year).
