Ever wonder how much the New York Jets actually intend to use Tim Tebow as they prepare for a team each week?  A lot of Jets fans would like to know if there is even really a game plan for the rarely used quarterback. The Tim Tebow package consists of about 15 plays said Tony Sparano — shedding a little light on what goes into the secretive world of how the Jets prepare the Wildcat quarterback.  Just how much Tebow is actually used in a game depends on the situation, said the offensive coordinator. "I keep them separated (from other plays) so I know when he's out there," Sparano said Thursday.  "That's been helpful to me to know here's his package and that's what we're practicing during the week. "Sometimes that package is a little bit bigger and sometimes it's a shade smaller," he added. Tebow has mostly languished on the sidelines while Mark Sanchez calls the signals.  Tebow has touched the ball on barely 10% of the team's offensive snaps so far this season. Sparano said the number of Tebow appearances are often dictated by the flow and scenario of the game.  For example, against Miami when the Jets were trailing and needed to work quickly against the clock and get off as many plays as possible.  "That's not a place to shuffling people in and out at that point," explained Sparano. "I think I have a pretty good feel on how to use him and how to use him best," Sparano said before the bye week. With the Jets (3-5) offense struggling and their playoff hopes on life support, Sparano might want to check and see if this week's package might be ticking.
