He has a pretty good record doing it.” Kraft was asked about Tebow horrible performance a couple of weeks ago. “Week to week [in the regular season] you’re going to ask the questions, if we don’t perform up to standard, why we didn’t [perform],” Kraft said. “I think you want to make sure we have the best 53 people to help us win games during the year.” I would be surprised if the Pats keep Tebow.  I don’t see any benefit to it.   Need NFL Tickets?
