The New England Patriots surprised the football world by giving Tim Tebow a shot this offseason. So far in the preseason, the former Florida quarterback hasn't looked so great. Actually, he has performed as many critics expected him to perform. But Tebow, despite the lackluster performance during the preseason games, is hoping the Patriots are more focused on his improvements during camp. As NFL.com reports on August 21, Tebow is not worried about getting cut, he is just focused on getting better.
Even if Tebow doesn't make the team as a third string quarterback, he has already gained valued experience playing with and behind a great quarterback like Tom Brady. But this also may be his last chance to make an NFL roster, at least as a quarterback. When asked about if he was worried about making the roster, Tebow told the Boston Herald:
"I'm just worried about improving every single day."
His answers are starting to sound like an answer Belichick would give. And speaking of the Patriots head coach, he wasn't budging on an answer either.
"I think if you look at the entire week last week, it would look different than the game did. In some cases, the game looked better for some players, and in some cases the game didn't look as good as some other things during the week."
Belichick gave his usual generic answer about Tebow's performance, but fans and experts watching the games could hardly forget Tebow completing on 5 of 19 passes for a total of 54 yards. Tebow still has a couple of more chances to prove his worth. The Patriots have two remaining preseason games against the Detroit Lions and New York Giants. If there is ever a time for Tebow time, it is now.
