FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Mark Sanchez was mostly miserable in Miami. Tim Tebow was ineffective despite getting more snaps than he had in the New York Jets' first two games.

Sanchez has shown a knack for coming through late in games -- as he did late in the Jets' 23-20 overtime victory over the Dolphins last Sunday. But in several situations that appeared perfect for Tebow, the playmaking backup remained on the sideline.

That had many fans and media wondering: Where's Tebow?

Tebow's role on the offense remains a mystery as the once-secret wildcat package has been rarely used. Tebow continues to say he'll do whatever the coaches tell him, but it seems the Jets' struggling offense could benefit from him being in games for more than just a few plays here and there.
