Pat Robertson: Peyton injury after Tebow trade would serve Broncos right
Everyone's got an opinion about the Broncos' signing of Peyton Manning and trade of Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, including none other than Pat Robertson. The televangelist recently came out in favor of Colorado's Amendment 64, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act. Now, however, he's basically suggesting that God wreak His mighty vengeance on the Broncos for giving The Chosen One the boot. See the video below.
Yesterday on CBN's The 700 Club (H/T Media Matters), Robertson responded to a news update about the Tebow trade by saying, "I think the Denver Broncos treated him shabbily. He won seven games. He brought them into the playoffs, for heaven's sake." Then, after sputteringly recounting Tebow's last-minute victories, including the postseason triumph over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Robertson notes that Manning has been hurt of late. "If that injury comes back," he notes, "Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right." In other words, with Tebow gone, they wouldn't have a prayer. Here's the Robertson clip.
