Here is Tebow's tweet today:


Looking forward to giving God all the glory in tonight's 666th Monday Night Football game. Romans 8:37-39

Tim gives God all the glory with his every breath, but I doubt seriously if he even plays in this game, unless Sanchez gets hurt, and there is talk that Alabama alum Greg McElroy may get the call if that happens (and he should. Greg can play quarterback, and Tim, sadly, can not).

From Yahoo sports:



Tonight's "Monday Night Football" matchup bears the mark of the beast (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_of_the_Beast) ‒ it's the 666th "Monday Night Football" game. However, Monday night's game also bears the presence of Tim Tebow (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/24000), the backup quarterback who gives the glory to God and Jesus wherever he goes.

If it seems ridiculous to point out a connection between the number 666 and Tim Tebow (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/24000), don't blame me. Blame Tebow. He did it on Twitter on Monday afternoon (https://twitter.com/TimTebow/status/255349702172737536).

On paper, the game pits the 4-0 Houston Texans against the 2-2 New York Jets. Does it also pit Tim Tebow against Satan? I don't know. In a way, doesn't every minute of his life pit Tim Tebow against Satan? I don't know that, either. These are questions for religious scholars or possibly Merril Hoge.

Had it been left up to me, I'd have never pondered the relevance, or even known about the involvement of the number 666 in Monday night's game. It was Tebow who brought it to my attention. Maybe the subject would've held more interest for me if Tebow was likely to play very much, or if the sum of the numbers worn by the Texans defensive starters added up to 666.

Unfortunately, they don't. It's very close, but they don't. The sum of the numbers worn by the Texans starters on defense is 669. I can't believe I bothered to check that, but I did.

Now, if it were to happen that Shaun Cody couldn't start (he's listed as probable), and Earl Mitchell (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/24056) were to take his place, Cody's 95 would be replaced by Mitchell's 92, thus lowering the count by three and putting us right at 666. At which point everyone's television would immediately burst into flame.

Enjoy the game tonight. Hopefully ESPN can get the Pope in the booth to help break things down.

You may be correct with regard to tonight's game. But the word is that Jets owner Woody Johnson is a big Tim Tebow fan and would like to see him eventually start. If the Texans humiliate the Jets we may see Tebow as the starter sooner rather than later.

TT is one of the best QBs in the league.Pass whatever it is you're smoking over here please. Frikkin bogarts. . .

The sooner the Jets make Tim Tebow the starting QB the better, IMO.

It is clear that Tebow cannot run a conventional NFL offense. So it is time for Tebow and the Jets to prove whether or not the college spread offense will work in the NFL.

I'm betting it will not. But let's find out and end the drama.

Sanchez ain't doing much out there.

Bring on the Jesus freak!

Way too early for a quarterback controversy. Let's wait till there's three weeks left in the season and the J-E-T-S are scrambling for that last wildcard slot in the playoffs and then bring him in. . .

I must confess... I hate all New York City sports teams. Apart from the New York Yankees, they are all over-hyped.

I watch and root for them all to lose.

The New York Yankees are not over-hyped. But I hate them anyway. They hire mercenaries and I am sick of the Cleveland Indians serving as a New York Yankees farm team.

Hear that Donn? We agree on one thing.

Look. Tim believes in Jesus. Those who believe in Jesus (in certain divisions of Christianity) are supposed to praise and adore Him at all times. Tim is a member of one of those divisions. Tim is not reticent about either Praising or Adoring.



WTF is anyone uncomfortable about this???


He's doing EXACTLY what he professes to believe in.

If you don't like it, look at the Bill of Rights.



S...T....F....U...!

I do not for a moment doubt the sincerity of Tim Tebow's Christian belief.

On the other hand, I find his marketing strategy absolutely fascinating. Since he joined the NY Jets he has agreed to pose for a number of shirtless beefcake photos for a number of trendy magazines whose clientele consists primarily of homosexuals.

The guy is absolutely calculating when it comes to marketing. He understands his appeal and his market.

Good agent.
You bet.

And, FWIW, I don't care what his sexual orientation might be.

But I dislike 1) Hypocrites; and 2) bad NFL Quarterbacks.

I suspect Tim Tebow is both.

Tebow is not the only Fundamentalist Christian athlete.
James Griffin Three comes to mind.
I followed his career at Baylor and he was fun watching.
I'm pretty sure Jesus loves Griffin more than He loves Tebow.:)

This week Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said the two most "dynamic" players he has ever coached were WR Percy Harvin and QB Braxton Miller.

Notice who was not mentioned by coach?

Tom Montgomery
10-08-2012, 10:01 PM
As one of the two most dynamic players he has ever coached? Nope.

Of course the press immediately asked him about Tebow after his remark. :rolleyes:

The press LOVES Tim Tebow. How could coach have overlooked him? :d

What a terrible cover photo of Ms. Knightley.

No, really.

As for Tebow, I am utterly unqualified to judge, either spiritually or professionally. :-)

Well, for the first time this season I saw the Jets play, and for the first time in decades I sat through an entire MNF game (I was at a family dinner for my daughter's wedding this Friday. I am normally in bed by nine pm). The first thing is that the Jets have some terrible receivers. The second thing is that Sanchez throws the ball to 'flat'. He doesn't have enough confidence in himself (or those terrible receivers), so he thinks he has to muscle the ball in there.

Tim is a Christian, but he is also a guy making a living, and I am sure that if you dug through to find out you'd see that he donates a whole lot of his income to his charities, and you kind of have to strike while the iron is hot, yes? I know that country singer Sara Evans is a committed Christian, but I also know that she wears very tight shirts and very short skirts and plays the casinos on the Gulf Coast all the time. Who am I to judge? You have to live in the world.

On the other hand, I remember former Dodger outfielder Shawn Green asking out of playing on Jewish holidays, and there was another baseball player (I forget his name), who was a Pentacostal Holiness or something like that, and he would not pitch from Friday at dusk until Saturday night.

Tim is never going to be a conventional NFL qb. He could play another position or he could ride off into the sunset, but I doubt he ever gives up his faith. He has his reasons for doing the things he does and it's not my place to question them. I think a lot of people will watch a committed Christian to see if he backslides just so they can say 'hey, you holier-than-thou so and so, look what you did', but they don't do that with Jews who don't eat kosher, or Muslims who don't pray five times a day. In this country it is open season on people who openly profess Christianity. Don't know why. It just is.

Two other things: it is Robert Griffin III, and Urban Meyer found his perfect qb in Tebow while he was at Florida, and until Nick Saban figured out how to defend him everything was fine. After Saban came up with his 'don't rush the quarterback' defense and made Tim either dive into the line for short gains or try and throw it accurately to someone Meyer kind of fell to pieces a little bit. He may not consider Tebow one of his greatest players now, but he is the one that put tears in Meyer's eyes and the only one I ever saw him kiss on the sideline (yes, he did that).

I loved the play where Tebow was at QB and Sanchez was sent as a WR. I can imagine what a safety could do if Sanchez actually caught a pass. Lights out. What was the bench thinking on that one?

JJ Watt won that game. That guy is going to have one helluva career packed into a single season.
