Pat Robertson: A Manning injury would serve the Broncos right

patrobertson Getty Images

Television evangelist Pat Robertson says the Denver Broncos didn’t show enough loyalty to Tim Tebow, and they may pay for it this season.

After the Broncos signed Peyton Manning and traded Tebow to the Jets, Robertson said he thinks it demonstrates that Tebow isn’t appreciated. And he said that if Manning’s neck injury keeps him off the field, the Broncos will be sorry.

I think the Denver Broncos treated him shabbily,” Robertson said, via Mediaite.com. “He won seven games, he brought them into the playoffs, for heaven sakes. I mean, they were a nothing team. He rallied them together with spectacular last-minute passes and, you know, when they beat Buffalo — I mean, Pittsburgh, excuse me — it was a tremendous victory. And you just ask yourself, OK, so Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he’s been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right.”

It’s not often that we turn to Pat Robertson for football opinions, but hearing an odd opinion from an odd source feels like par for the course in this craziest of NFL offseasons.

    Remember when you cared about what Pat Robertson said regarding sports?

    Yeah, I never did either.

    What a moron this guy is. Tebow’s lucky the Broncos even gave him an opportunity to start. The defense carried the team most of the way.

  5. jimmylions says: Mar 22, 2012 7:52 PM

    Why isn’t Pat Robertson telling Peyton Manning to lay his hands on the TV while watching the 700 Club, so he ensure Manning’s injury is completely healed?

    Shouldn’t Pat Robertson be saying that being traded to the Jets was god’s will for Tebow Wasn’t Tebow sent there to perform an exorcism on the City of New York, and Rex Ryan?

    What will Pat Robertson do if Tebow decides to pull a Favre, and send pics of Little Timmy to the Jets cheerleaders?

    Pat is a full frontal embarrassment to Christians everywhere

  15. grikes says: Mar 22, 2012 7:59 PM

    A despicable human being and embarrassment to well meaning Christians everywhere.

  16. eleventyeight says: Mar 22, 2012 7:59 PM

    Yet another slanted, biased, inaccurate and inflammatory headline that more than paraphrases the statement Robertson made, it downright filthed it up.

    Disingenious, to say the least. Pat didn’t wish any injury to Peyton; he just said that if Manning were to get hurt or not be the QB we know him to be that it would be somehow karmically appropriate.

    I agree: If Manning can’t be the player he has been or(God forbid, no sarcasm) is re-injured per: his neck then Denver could be in big trouble wins-wise.

    I don’t like how things went down in Donkeytown, but i pray for Manning to be safe. I have had the same injury he has, twice; i can barely walk and a good shot from an OLB could kill me. I pray that never happens to anyone, and i wish Peyton had become a commentator.

    Peyton is an All-Pro and a wizard at his trade, but I hope that he isn’t pushing the envelope of survival in this season.

    God protect Manning and good luck to him.

  17. nflconspiracytheoristdeluxe says: Mar 22, 2012 8:00 PM

    Okay now, don’t tell anyone I said this…look the other way as I write….

    He may have a point.

  18. phillyphever says: Mar 22, 2012 8:00 PM

    Great, religion crap. Hey Pat, Tebow can pray as much and hard as he wants, it’s not gonna help him become an average QB.

  19. hallcyon says: Mar 22, 2012 8:00 PM

    Pat Robertson – still the worst person ever.

  20. delmonte55 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:01 PM

    Pat Robertson should watch his back. Tebow is his competition when he gets cut from the NFL.

  21. emma333 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:01 PM

    Wow, I knew I was listening to all the wrong football analysts…this guy makes a lot of sense. NOT!!!!!!

    The picture looks like he’s related to Alfred E. Neuman. What a maroon!

    So he’s saying god is a vengeful god

  24. justadude71 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:03 PM

    As a Bronco Fan I really enjoyed last season. It was exciting and fun to reach and win a playoff game. However, that team was two (2) plays removed from 6-10. The onside kick in Miami and the out of bounds run against the Bears. Lets not forget the Von Miller tackle against San Diego and the pick six against the Jets, both of which were instrumental in those games. All plays Tebow did not make. The Broncos could easily have been 4-12 if the ball had bounced only a little different.

    Furthermore, Elway was right when he pointed out the deficiencies of the Broncos Tebow led offense (comp pct, 3rd down conv pct).

    People need to get a grip. Tebow is a great guy, but that does not make him a great pro QB. In an article by Dan Wetzel he, correctly stated that Tebows rabid fans are a big part of the reason Broncos management wanted him out.

  25. kaakwha says: Mar 22, 2012 8:05 PM

    Robertson has been and apparently will remain a phony Christian who does not practice what his religion espouses. He is a loser! Who freaking cares about his nonsensical football opinions?

  26. spellingcops says: Mar 22, 2012 8:05 PM

    He rallied them together with spectacular last-minute passes and, you know, when they beat Buffalo — I mean, Pittsburgh, excuse me — it was a tremendous victory. And you just ask yourself, OK, so Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he’s been injured. If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right.”

    Hey Pat, since you brought up the Bills game, why don’t you check Tebow’s stats in that game (a potential playoff clincher if my memory serves me correctly)? If I never read another quote or see his ugly face again it’ll be too soon. The next time someone wants Pat Robertson’s take on football will be the first time.

  27. gotampabay52 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:05 PM

    The craziest off season everyday something else will this maddness stop we havent even had the draft yet

  28. blacknole08 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:05 PM

    It’s not like he said anything that was untrue. Manning WAS injured last year and he’s not 100 percent yet, Tebow DID win a playoff game and was not appreciated by Broncos management. It would be karma biting Elway and the Broncos in the you know what.

  29. backindasaddle says: Mar 22, 2012 8:06 PM

    “Pat Robertson: A Manning injury would serve the Broncos right”

    Well now!… that’s not a very Christian thing to say. I might even consider it a sin to say such a thing. Well, he knows that Jesus died on our behalf so that our sins would be forgiven…. so I guess he’s just trying to make certain he uses up his sin allotment and doesn’t leave any behind. Kinda like public sector employees and sick days.

  30. benh999 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:08 PM

    He has a point.

    Pat Robertson: crazy, old, and full of opinions no one cares about!

  32. purplengold says: Mar 22, 2012 8:11 PM

    Pat Robertson claimed he was “a combat marine” when he ran for president, actually he only sat in supply planes as they flew from base to base.

  33. east96st says: Mar 22, 2012 8:12 PM

    However, if Peyton was to tithe his earnings to the 700 club, Pat will gladly claim Peyton is a righteous Christian soldier and endorse Manning for President.

  34. unca_chuck says: Mar 22, 2012 8:12 PM

    Sooo, Tebow=Jesus

    Therefore, Manning=Devil

    How do you explain the Saints, Pat?

  35. ingloriousmaster says: Mar 22, 2012 8:13 PM

    I don’t know whose the bigger embarassment to society, Pat Robertson or the sheep that follow him and have made him very rich…

    Oh the power of a preacher…so much power, so little substance

    first it’s Dr. Phil and now we get Pat Robertson … who’s next Rosie O’Donnell ?

  38. keepitsimplestoopid says: Mar 22, 2012 8:14 PM

    Pat Robertson: prayed for the death of Chief Justice Rhenquist. On the air. I am sure he will roast in the afterlife.

  39. Fan On Fire_Maurice Barksdale says: Mar 22, 2012 8:14 PM

    I don’t think the opinion was odd. Obviously Robertson is a Tim Tebow fan. But most people think they know exactly how this will all play out, and that’s with Denver going to a Super Bowl.

    But nobody really knows what’s going to happen when Manning starts getting hit. Everybody’s happy and full of hope in Bronco land, but the fact is this was huge risk they took. Peyton Manning may never fully recover from his injuries. We’ll just have to see.

  40. patsfan1951 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:15 PM

    Mr. Robertson, close your eyes and pretend you’re receiving a “word of knowledge” from God, like you do on your tv show…….”someone has had some sort of neck injury, you’ve had several surgeries and it’s affected your job. God is healing that now in Jesus’ name”.

  41. chefklm says: Mar 22, 2012 8:16 PM

    Waiting to hear from the oh so many right wing mouth breathers that troll here their defense if this jackhole….

  42. wesvr says: Mar 22, 2012 8:16 PM

    I get it now!! Pat Robertson is Skip Bayless’ father…it all makes sense now.

  43. randygnyc says: Mar 22, 2012 8:18 PM

    He’s not wrong. It’s for this very reason that I’ll find myself rooting against Denver this year. I’d like to see Elway ruined, professionally and personally, for this.

  44. hugoschtiglets says: Mar 22, 2012 8:21 PM

    What a spiteful douche, this isn’t peewee football, it a business where the best man wins the job. This is exactly why denver traded him because of misguided fans like this. Also kinda funny that such a religious man could find it right that harm be brought to another person.

  45. thegonz13 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:21 PM

    His opinion on sports matters as much as that of Rush Limbaugh!

  46. cuda1234 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:21 PM

    Its a little too early so say the Broncos won’t have a qb if Peyton gets injured, but its not too early to say that statistically they had the worst qb in the league last year so they will probably be OK. I will take Elway’s evaluation of qb’s over Robertson’s.

  47. robertunsoberirish says: Mar 22, 2012 8:21 PM

    Pay attention Jets fans! This is a prime example of a Tebow fan! He doesn’t know his ass from a helmet but still thinks his “christian viewpoint” matters and is relevant in football discussions if it involves Timmy Tebow. I can’t wait for the day that Tebow is cut and, no one resigns him!

  48. 6ball says: Mar 22, 2012 8:22 PM

  49. cjepp says: Mar 22, 2012 8:22 PM

    As a christian and full time minister, Pat Robertson does not speak for Jesus. Jesus speaks for Jesus…and Jesus didn’t or wouldn’t say that. Sorry that my idiot brother is acting up again, folks.

  50. habibthomas says: Mar 22, 2012 8:24 PM

    I nominate this as the funniest story in PFT history. I saw the title of the story and lost it.

    Pat Robertson? That well known and respected NFL commentator? Oh, you mean the televangelist who takes little old ladies’ money and magically turns it into pinky rings and diamond tie tacks.

  55. mlmeier says: Mar 22, 2012 8:30 PM

    Add “football” to the list of categories in which Pat Robertson has revealed himself to be an ignorant donkey.

  56. sullijo1 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:31 PM

    Can’t wait until the Tebow related talk doesn’t get tagged with “Denver Broncos” anymore……

    Can’t wait.

  57. HitsDingers says: Mar 22, 2012 8:31 PM

    What does Pat Robertson deserve for wishing a plague on PeyPey?

  58. bobbyhoying says: Mar 22, 2012 8:36 PM

    So Pat’s not allowed to have an opinion about a football transaction? It’s logical the Broncos will suffer the wrath of their fans if Peyton can’t play and Tebow does well in New York. To you Robertson critics I say, well duh.

  59. blurryvisi0n says: Mar 22, 2012 8:38 PM

    Wishing bad upon someone sounds so Christian of you.

  61. oldbloodstegosaurus says: Mar 22, 2012 8:40 PM

    Pat Robinson is one of the people that blames most of the worlds problems on people turning away from Christ. Attitudes and opinions like this, from a christian leader, are why people turn away from Christ. People like Pat Robinson use His words to justify their own hate. A personal sense of justice that they blasphemously declare to be Gods.

    Anyways, YAY FOOTBALL!!!

    “When you say “radical right” (Tebowmaniacs)today, I think of these moneymaking ventures by fellows like Pat Robertson and others who are trying to take the Republican party (NFL) and make a religious organization out of it. If that ever happens, kiss politics (The NFL) goodbye.” – Barry Goldwater

  65. pnthrz1 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:43 PM

    What Pat is really saying is he likes the Jets because he likes the green…

    As a Christian, I think Pat and Tebow are really the kind of lightning rods we don’t need. They can do a number of things to help people, but the perceptions they create do harm as well.

  66. farvite says: Mar 22, 2012 8:44 PM

    Generally I would say “stick to what you know”… But with this guy, I’m not sure what that would be.

  67. shotgungrampa says: Mar 22, 2012 8:48 PM

    He wasnt saying that he hopes manning gets hurt. Just that if he did it would serve the broncos right.

  68. LoCoSu@%s says: Mar 22, 2012 8:48 PM

    What a weasel. Anyone that spouts hate on others cannot be a truly religious person.

  69. drgreenstreak says: Mar 22, 2012 8:50 PM

    Polarizing. Just like Timmy.

  70. seniorvideography says: Mar 22, 2012 8:53 PM

    Well Pat, Manning talked about the Lord like Tebow when he was at Tennessee. Paul the apostle (Tebow) has been sent to Rome (New York) the Lord will do the rest.

  71. danimal1027 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:55 PM

    I prefer the term rationalist over atheist

    I recall gb saying to favre the distractions getting old we r moving on and he was a far better qb than tebow. In his second year he showed no improvements in his mechanics field vision or decision making. Favre was like zues in gb but the act got tired. If front offices made every decision based fan popularity the NFL would be a dead industry. Being a good person doesn’t earn you the right to start in the NFL being the best at your position does. He is clearly.

  72. danimal1027 says: Mar 22, 2012 8:58 PM

    Clearly not

  73. TSizzleBallSoHard says: Mar 22, 2012 8:58 PM

    The Broncos won more games last year because of their defense and their running game than they did because of Tebow.

  74. lostsok says: Mar 22, 2012 9:03 PM

    Does God facepalm? If he didn’t before…

  75. nflfollower says: Mar 22, 2012 9:03 PM

    Something like this happens every offseason, it just happened to tebow, so its a bigger story. I really actually like the guy and pull for him, its a total underdog and good guy story. The amount of press he gets is a bit unfortunate, however.

  76. benjamanpaul says: Mar 22, 2012 9:06 PM

    So now we have this knowitall spouting off about football. Well, could someone please explain to Pat Robertson that Tim Tebow sucks at playing QB at the NFL level.

  77. denverscott says: Mar 22, 2012 9:10 PM

    Every one is wasting too much energy on Robertson and all the crystalesq cathedral money grubbers. He only opens his fly hole to try to remain relevant, like Madonna, or Sarah Palin. Anything to keep the mass of idiots out there sending in money. I’m a Broncos fan and I like Tebow. Do I think he is the answer at this stage, No but I would have liked to see him mature on the bench (sidelines, not pew. He’s had enough of that training). Is he gay? I’d bet the farm he is but so what. So, I’m a Denver fan that as an atheist still likes the kid, thinks he probably likes fudge sickles, hopes he makes Ryans head explode (him or anyone), hopes he does good and hopes that people would stop funding these f-in ripoff tools to try and buy their way into a fantasy land that doesn’t exist. Buy a homeless vet lunch if you need to feel good.

  78. jgagliano1199 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:14 PM

    Ha! I love it. I wanna hear what Pat has to say in 4 years when Manning and Elway are working on tying #3, and Timmy is out of the league and back to mission work…… Trust me though, we won’t. Ha!

  79. jackm79 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:28 PM

    Religious nut job. This guy is a scum bag. Someone should let the Saints take care of this guy.

  80. sameer1138 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:34 PM

    Would this count as Pat Robertson/God placing a bounty on Peyton Manning? And if so, how is Roger Goodell planning to discipline God?

  81. clemenza58 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:38 PM

    So you want one guy to get injured because of a business decision that was made involving another? How Christian of you, Pat Robertson.

  82. charger383 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:40 PM

    Where does the curse of Pat Robertson rank compared to the Wrath of Khon?

  83. eleventyeight says: Mar 22, 2012 9:44 PM

    You know, for all the crap Tebow gets from his haters(who i think are mostly paid atheist/communist/Leftist propagandists) he did one great thing that totally changed the way Denver played football,
    *especially and particularly* the defense: Tebow’s run-heavy play gave the Broncos outstanding T.O.P. numbers after they started playing him.

    In the modern pass-happy league the art of clock-control is quickly disappearing in favor of big plays and lots of TDs.

    This explains the emergence of the refreshed, effective DEN defense. Tebow didn’t need big yards or stats. He didn’t need 30-40 passes/game. He just needed to gain 3.4/play and be in no hurry to allow his defense to hit the field at full strength on every defensives series.

    That’s how Tebow helped the Broncos great defensive * players* become a great defensive team: by taking a lot of playing time off thier backs and keeping them fresh.

    I know: totally off-topic, but isn’t this a football site?

  84. Trey says: Mar 22, 2012 9:48 PM

    Pat Robertson is a false prophet and does not represent the views of orthodox/confessional Christians. He gained his false prophet status by claiming the world would end in 1982, yet to my knowledge has not repented.

    You have to love these media types who broadcast what they think are the leaders of Evangelical Christianity or Christianity itself. It really shows that they are out of the loop and ignorant of who the true leaders of Christianity are. It is a gross and blatant oversimplification, can you say reductive fallacy .

  85. thegonz13 says: Mar 22, 2012 9:56 PM

    Pat Robertson is cut from the same cloth as the Westboro Baptist Church. All organized religion is for simple idiots, but some more than others.

  88. Political(dis)Course says: Mar 22, 2012 10:10 PM

    This is funny. If a guy or woman who was known for being on espn (any of them) started knocking robertson because of his religous beliefs or his political beefs the far righties would be in an uproar about them having no knowledge of the subject and attacking their beliefs. So I must refrain from calling out pats criticisms of an nfl teams roster decision so I don’t sound like them… And his argument sounds like him and my grandma would enjoy watching games together with some holy water and saltines

  89. southtexan says: Mar 22, 2012 10:17 PM

    What a douche bag. He makes all Christians look bad.

  90. nomesayin says: Mar 22, 2012 10:17 PM

    Personally, I believe that acquiring Manning gave Elway the PERFECT pretense to go in a different direction at QB. It just so happens that he got a future first-ballot HOF QB in the process. Anyone less, & there might have been a fanbase mutiny & the Tebowmaniacs would have been inconsolable. Now, there is optimism in Denver in spite of Tebow moving on.
    The hypeshow about signing Manning merely camouflaged the fact that Elway wanted to move on from Tebow.
    Whenever TT would sail a dying quail which was nowhere near his WR, I could picture Elway cringing with a *facepalm…at which point, Elway might have offered $95M to anyone that could relieve the weight of a Tebow-sized albatross from around his neck.
    Mr. Robertson says the Broncos will be without a QB if the Manning is unable to compete. I really don’t think it matters to Elway’s vision of the future. He got out from under the weight of having to acquiesce to having a QB he never really wanted…& came out of the whole fiasco relatively unscathed.

  91. caseysarasota says: Mar 22, 2012 10:25 PM

    As a pastor myself I have to say that Pat Robertson is wrong. He hurts Christianity when he says off the wall stuff like this. I like Tebow and like why he stands for. But to say in essence God is going to hurt Peyton Manning or the broncos is ridiculous! I think Jesus may be more concerned about the poor, the sick and the hurting, not the Broncos. Just saying from a pastors perspective. Oh, and I’d do the same thing!!! Peyton is one of the beat of all times, it would be stupid not to go after him.

  92. jagalag says: Mar 22, 2012 10:30 PM

    Headline is misleading. He never said he wished a new injury on Manning. He didn’t say anything that different than what has been expressed by the mainstream sports media. Even Manning told teams he was not 100%.

    Yes, he’s a dope but who listens to this dude anyway?

  93. lks311 says: Mar 22, 2012 10:35 PM

    Just another indication the Broncos did exactly the right thing getting Tebow out of town. Denver can once again concentrate on football…like 30 other franchises.

  107. pantherdan says: Mar 23, 2012 1:32 AM

    OK What have we learned from last season?

    We learned God is a huge Eli Manning fan. He quit helping Tebow and went back to Eli’s side during the playoffs….

    I know for a fact that God only watches one game at a time and Tebow was SOL as God was busy with the huge prayer base of requests coming from New York and the Tri-state area wanting the Giants to win while Tebow was losing. God did not even turn on the set when he was answering the Giants prayers.

    Now the reasons the Jets got Tebow is Rex Ryan (who is close cahoots with satan) learned that God was an Eli fan first then a Tebow fan second…And he felt maybe when the prayers from New York and Jersey went up to please let “Tebow and New York win” that God would be tricked into thinking the fans meant Tebow was now backing up Eli…

    Rex has been tricking God for years and years…It all goes back to his dad Bum and his brother Rob (Rob used to pull of Rex’s junk a bunch when they were kids and Rex has never been right since)

  108. pantherdan says: Mar 23, 2012 1:39 AM

    What a spiteful douche, this isn’t peewee football, it a business where the best man wins the job. This is exactly why denver traded him because of misguided fans like this. Also kinda funny that such a religious man could find it right that harm be brought to another person.

    _________________

    Exactly and I find the fact that he is trying to make PM out to be the “devil” here is somewhat comical. As far as I know, there have been no real reports of PM conducting any serious indescretions off the field-on the contrary, he has donated boatloads of cash to a hospital, a great deal of time to charities, etc and based on a great number of things I have read is generally viewed favorably by pretty much everyone in Indy whether they are football fans or not.

    I Pat R was railing against Pacman (is he even still relevant?) I might find this a little less disturbing. Any religious figure “hoping” for anyone to suffer serious injury is no more than a charletan and is the reason I try to keep my relationship with God between God and myself.

    It’s not like he said anything that was untrue. Manning WAS injured last year and he’s not 100 percent yet, Tebow DID win a playoff game and was not appreciated by Broncos management. It would be karma biting Elway and the Broncos in the you know what.
    _____________________________
    Sure, just like it would be karma biting Tebow in the butt if the Jets pull Sanchez and Tebow suffers a season ending injury on the first play. He did choose to go to a team with a starting QB who fans aren’t thrilled with after all. You really don’t think he stopped to consider that his popularity might give him a chance to usurp another QB if he falters at all?

    The problem with you excusing what Robertson said (btw, never a good position to be in if you really care about karma) is that he ended by saying it would “serve them right”. That’s not a harmless “they’re taking a risk with a player coming off an injury” statement. That’s an “I want to see another human being seriously injured because the Broncos thought he would be a better option than our beloved Tebow” statement.

    The truth is, karma (if it even exists) has nothing to do with this. In this sense, karma refers to suffering brought about to balance out bad deeds. There are no bad deeds here. This is professional football. The team is supposed to start the player they feel gives them the best chance to win, and then put that player in the best position possible. Sometimes they’re right, and sometimes they’re wrong. There is, however, nothing bad or inappropriate about them making that decision. Tebow was not entitled to the starting QB job, or even a roster spot, on the Broncos. Robertson and Tebow’s more fanatical supporters need to understand that.

    ________________________________
    Please think about what you just said. He said it would serve the Broncos right for a person to suffer a serious neck injury. I’m not sure what your vocabulary level is, but when you say it would serve them right, you’re saying that they deserve it. Why? Because they thought Peyton was a better option than Tebow? The doctors cleared him, so in that case, it’s a no-brainer. Btw, would it serve Peyton right too? He’s the one Pat’s talking about suffering a major injury after all. Does Peyton deserve it for taking a job offered to him when the Broncos had a starting QB? If so, does that also mean Tebow deserves to suffer a major injury for going to the Jets when they already have a QB. What about Rex Ryan, Mike Tannenbaum, and the Jets organization. They’re not exactly being supportive of Sanchez.

    You know, for all the crap Tebow gets from his haters(who i think are mostly paid atheist/communist/Leftist propagandists) he did one great thing that totally changed the way Denver played football,
    *especially and particularly* the defense: Tebow’s run-heavy play gave the Broncos outstanding T.O.P. numbers after they started playing him.

    In the modern pass-happy league the art of clock-control is quickly disappearing in favor of big plays and lots of TDs.

    This explains the emergence of the refreshed, effective DEN defense. Tebow didn’t need big yards or stats. He didn’t need 30-40 passes/game. He just needed to gain 3.4/play and be in no hurry to allow his defense to hit the field at full strength on every defensives series.

    That’s how Tebow helped the Broncos great defensive * players* become a great defensive team: by taking a lot of playing time off thier backs and keeping them fresh.

    I know: totally off-topic, but isn’t this a football site?
    ______________________________
    Just out of curiosity, what’s the name of your conspiracy theory blog? Atheist, Communist, Leftist Propagandists paid to hate on Tebow? Wow, some heavy meds must be involved in a rant like that…or some heavy meds are required to deal with the source of that problem. Personally, I’m a pro-business (with some sensible regulations and oversight) Christian with a degree in Economics. My only problem with Tebow is that I don’t think he’s a good QB. I do have other issues with his more radical fans and the media that floods us with non-stop Tebow stories when we’re just trying to check out sports news in general.

    As for Tebow making the defense better, you might want to rethink that. I don’t care how much they ran the ball, when you keep going 3 and out you’re not using up a whole lot of game clock…at least not in a sustained way. You’re constantly putting your defense back out on the field in fact, with the knowledge that they simply can’t let the other team score or they’re in deep trouble since they Broncos didn’t put up many points (with a couple of exceptions) with Tebow under center. In fact, the Broncos scored more points on average with Orton under center.

    This is why 93% of scientists are atheists (there are a few religious nuts in every field) and only 0.02% of americans in prison are atheist. The countries with the highest percentages of atheism have the lowest percentages of crime and murder in the world. Religion is for the weak minded that can’t accept proof over their own emotions. With evolution being tested hundreds of times and 72 nobel prizes awarded to evolutionary scientists (0 for creationists) and the big bang being proven through the discovery of the cosmic microwave background radiation (you can see the release from NASA) people shouldn’t believe the supernatural when there are natural explanations. Science flies you to the moon… religion flies you into buildings.

    If you don’t understand why evolution and the big bang have “theory” after them it’s because they are scientific theories, not theories. The definition of a scientific theory is a hypothesis that was tested and confirmed to be true. Not just an idea like religious people think.

Did he ever think, maybe it is God’s will that Tebow play ball in a ruthless town like New York to try to redeem the sins of Wall St. and try to save Rex Ryan from sexual fetishes, throwing the F bomb and bombast.

    How is it that Tebow has become so famous not for his play but for his “tebowing” that he did on the field. Someone wrote that he did a lot for the Broncos and that their T.O.P was amazing thanks to Tebow and that he didnt need to throw 30-40 times in a game. Did you forget that they did that because he could throw that many times lmao. Its not like he could and they decided against it. If you would say that about Peyton or Brady then your point might hold some weight. But when you have a NFL QB that cannot make NFL throws there is a problem. Tebow will have all of the fame and the popularity until he sucks and this is his year to prove everyone wrong, if not then he was just another circus attraction that lost its appeal. If he was so great why trade him, when he could of sat behind Peyton for a few years learning. Every so called analyst says the same thing about Tebow, that he is a winner and a great athlete, not one person says that he is a great QB, does that tell you something?

    I would like to pose the following question to this telescum and all the other ultra religious right wingnuts: If Tebow followed Islam, and pulled out his prayer rug and prayed to Mecca after every touchdown or victory (no offense to Islam if I have the terms wrong), would these same people be up in arms that this trade was a result of Tebow’s views? Personally, I think everyone has his/her right to choice, but it is exactly that, his/hers. Keep it to themselves.

    —————————————————-

    1) just because somebody is poor, doesn’t mean they are unemployed. Perhaps they’re poor because your corporate prostitute GOP has helped ship all our jobs overseas and has ground the middle class into poverty.

    2) Yeah, the GOP creates jobs…..if you’re a little kid in China or Bangladesh and want to work for 10 cents an hour, 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, in hellish conditions, and no benefits. Yeah, you guys are real magnanimous.

    3) And the ol’ “enabler” myth. Ever stop to consider that the job market fell out right along with the economy? That happened under a Republican administration, by the way (that’s what happens when you decide to fight 2 wars on credit and have no means of production for a wartime economy…..that exporting jobs thing again). Millions of people didn’t just get lazy all of the sudden at the exact same time the economy crashed.

    4) Now go back to watching Fox News and leave the actual discussion to the rational people who are capable of forming our own opinions based on our own research….rather than what some pundit has to say.

    5) Oh, and enjoy watching Obama’s landslide victory in November. It’s been funny watching that hilarious excuse for a GOP race and watching you guys ping pong from one front runner to another. Maybe you guys can even get Carrot Top to campaign for a few months.

    Why is he even wasting time running his mouth! Last I heard he is not a football analyst. Just cause he’s all over Tebow’s jock doesn’t make him an authority on football. I happen to like Peyton Manning and I do not agree with anyone basically being threatened…especially so called in Our Lord and Savior’s name. He is a very disturbed individual and needs serious guidance.

    Why do we care about the incoherant ramblings of a lunitic mind. It’s people like Pat Robertson that inspired me to STOP going to church. Preaching about the pain someone deverves is NOT what I would call being Christ-like. The man has a history of judging people which is ironic and anyone who supports this rhetoric has clearly NOT read their bible. Just sayin’.
