2012 has not been good to New York Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez so far. Yes, he got Eva Longoria. But his quarterback play has been dismal. There’s a growing chorus for Tebow Time that seems to get louder every week. And now, he’s being demonized. Literally.
Sanchez wears number 6. So far this season, he has 6 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He is averaging 6.6 yards per attempt, his longest pass is 66 yards, and his passer rating is 66.6. I checked, guys. It’s true.
And here is the tweet put out by his teammate and backup (for now) quarterback, Tim Tebow prior to the Jets’ Monday night loss against the Texans:
Looking forward to giving God all the glory in tonight’s 666th Monday Night Football game. Romans 8:37-39

Remember Tim Tebow’s eery bible verse numbers during the Broncos playoff win over the Steelers last January? Tebow passed for 316 yards, had 31.6 yards per pass, and Sports Business Journal reported television ratings for the last quarter at 31.6.
John 3:16 is Tim Tebow’s favorite Bible verse. It reads: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
So, what is Mark Sanchez to do? Go to church…fast. And start playing better. Preferably, both.
Otherwise, Jets fans may be calling for Tebow Time. And an exorcism.
