We have seen a lot of Tim Tebow so far this preseason, and we are going to see quite a bit more. He is set to finish the game on Sunday night after Mark Sanchez and the starters play into the third quarter. He likely will see significant time in the final tune up as well.

But there is one thing we haven’t seen, and we aren’t going to see either, until the regular season begins. It’s Tim Tebow’s calling card, and the Jets have been very secretive about it. They have only practiced in sessions closed to the public, and had walkthroughs even after the media has been dispersed. We are talking about the Wildcat.

It has been missing from the preseason so far, and coach Rex Ryan has announced that the Jets are not likely to show any of the plays until the season starts. Mark Sanchez, according to coach Ryan, will take all of the first team snaps on Sunday night, indicating that we won’t see any of the Wildcat at all.

My question is, Is this the right move? There are pros for doing it this way, but there are certainly negatives as well.
