It's been a race in the Jets front office to deflect blame for Tim Tebow's signing, season-long benching, and the entire circus. First onto Tebow himself, with anonymous Jets sources saying Tebow refused to be used in Wildcat packages. Then coach Rex Ryan made it known it was strictly a football move, saying that if he thought Tebow could have helped the team win, "I would have played him."
(Ryan also made his loyalties crystal clear by refusing to play Tebow no matter how awful Mark Sanchez played. Also, an erotic Sanchez tattoo.)
