FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Rex Ryan says Tim Tebow's playing time with the New York Jets will be determined by the team - not anxious fans or media.
With the popular backup quarterback seeing just three snaps on offense in the Jets' 27-10 loss at Pittsburgh on Sunday, many wonder whether Tebow is being used enough. Ryan says Wednesday that he's "never going to give you a legitimate answer" on the game plans, adding that it's in the team's best interest if they keep opponents - and everyone else - guessing.
"We control it," Ryan says. "The media's not going to drive it."
Tebow was acquired in March from Denver to back up Mark Sanchez and provide a versatile element on offense. So far, he has six runs for 33 yards and no passes.
