With the New York media asking the questions, Rex Ryan has a lot to answer when he goes through his press conferences. The topic that is most prevalent on the media’s mind is the Wildcat. Everyone wants to get more of a read on how many snaps Tim Tebow is going to get. It has been an inconsistent number so far, as Rex Ryan has stated. Despite how many times he has told the media that it will vary from game to game, the questions remain. Yesterday, he took an even more direct approach, putting the reporters directly in the crosshairs when addressing the topic:

That’s the beauty of it because we control it. The media is not going to drive it. The opponent, they’re not going to have any idea what we’re going to do with them and I’m certainly not going to let them know, ‘By the way, Tebow is going to have 50 snaps today.’ Let (them prepare). I’m never going to give a legitimate answer. I think I know the answer, but I’m not going to give it to them. I think it plays into our best interests that our opponents don’t know how many (Wildcat plays we are going to run). Is it going to be a big feature? Is the Wildcat going to be very featured this week or is it going to be more back-burnered. I think that plays into our advantage.
