NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Westhoff, the Jets' recently retired special teams coordinator, tells a Florida radio station that the way the team handled Tim Tebow was ``an absolute mess.''

Instead, Tebow barely got on the field in most games and never started at quarterback - even after Mark Sanchez was benched.

Westhoff adds that he's ``still waiting for the unveiling'' of the game plan that included lots of Tebow. The quarterback tried to hide his frustration throughout the season, but Westhoff says he could see a change in his demeanor and ``that swagger that got out of him a little bit.
