Is Tim Tebow Playing For A Job Thursday Night Against The New York Giants?

Tim Tebow

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Tim Tebow is perhaps the most polarizing figure in sports. Some people love him; some hate him. What everyone can agree on though, is that he has struggled mightily so far in the preseason. He has missed wide-open receivers and has held on to the football way too long.

Both fans and analysts have been wondering whether he could be cut prior to the New England Patriots‘ 53-man roster being finalized on Saturday.

Well, now that the first round of cuts is nearly complete, he seems to have lived to fight another day. With 77 players currently on the roster, he will have to show the team that he has improved to avoid being one of the 24 remaining cuts.

His final chance to prove that he can succeed in the NFL will come Thursday night in the team’s final preseason game. In that game, he will face the New York Giants, most likely playing the majority of the game.

In the fourth preseason game, key starters don’t typically play much, if at all, so expect Tom Brady to either play a few snaps or not at all. Ryan Mallett may then play a few series, perhaps a quarter or so, leaving Tebow to play the remainder of the game.

How he plays could go a long way in determining if he is cut or he makes the roster. Expect him to get a long look in the game, trying to put together the best performance possible. This is potentially the biggest game of his career and he won’t have the luxury of making mistakes.

Do you think Tebow will make the 53-man roster? Should he? Is his job on the line in the preseason finale? Why or why not? Feel free to comment on the subject in the “comments” section below.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was a guest Fox Sports 1's 'Whitlock's House Party by the Bay' on Thursday afternoon, and the show naturally turned into a party considering the guest. Gronkowski recently revealed that he had once stripped at a bachelorette party in college, so when he was challenged to do so by the crew, he proceeded to get his moves on, and it was nothing short of glorious.
