The aftermath of Tim Tebow’s 666 tweet … devil’s handiwork! Sorcery!

If you recall from Monday, Tim Tebow sent out the following tweet as the Jets prepared to meet the Houston Texans:

@TimTebow
Looking forward to giving God all the glory in tonight’s 666th Monday Night Football Game. Romans 8:37.39.

We had some fun with that, noting that 666 is known among some religious folks as the “mark of the beast”, and the Bible passage Tebow listed made reference to angels, demons, and the power of life and death. We closed by wondering, what does it all mean? We also slept with the lights on that night.

Then we got a look at Mark Sanchez’s post-game passing stats (thanks to reader myopinionisrighterthanyours for the heads-up).

Following Monday’s loss to Houston, Sanchez had 6 touchdowns, 6 interceptions, and a net yards gained per passing attempt of 6.0.

*Begin ominous music*

His longest pass of the season went for, you guessed it … 66 yards.

*Music swells. Beads of sweat form on writer’s brow*

And Sanchez’s passer rating is now … no, it can’t be …

*Music stops. All is quiet*

… 66.6.

*Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! (/door slams shut by itself. Laptop levitates)*

It’s all right here if you don’t believe me. I still don’t know exactly what it means, but I’ve blocked Tebow on Twitter and am currently stringing garlic throughout the house.

*That’s for vampires, you idiot*

    With all the mixed up symbols and interpretations in that story, I am dizzy.

    Many Jets fans are wondering why Tebow at least was not allowed to QB the final series or so since he has so often pulled out games with more deficit than that while with Denver. The dropped passes are epidemic with the Jets and a few other teams, both pro and college. It’s about time we have a statistical category such as “receivers–dropped passes”. Better focus on part of Jet’s receivers and we could have had a different winner in that game.

    Let’s not forget…

      I was going to up vote your comment, but you currently have 6 up votes. Too perfect.

    This just in.

    Tim Tebow wants to change the name of New Jersey’s hockey team from the Devils to the Angels.
