They're actually incapable of developing an offense where any QB can succeed, but I doubt they realize it.
I'm sure you're correct that Rex never intended to start Tebow or allow him to be a true backup QB. Tebow could've used pretty much the same offense as Sanchez or McElroy. Some folks think Tebow was a wildcat QB in college or they don't know the difference between the WC, spread or read option. Tebow is a spread / read option QB - not a Wildcatter - so I think even the "great defensive mind" could have come up with a workable offensive plan for one game.
I gather from these posts that most Jets fans enjoyed seeing Tebow trotted out like a sideshow freak as a personal punt protector, blocker, back, water boy or whatever. Evidently it's okay for a head coach to lie to a player, a team, and the fans. No one is ashamed by Rex's behavior - certainly not Rex. What a hilarious joke old Rex played on Tebow! Long live King Rex Ryan with the NYJ.
