If Pat Robertson's vision of theological payback comes true, Peyton Manning will be injured this season as retribution for the Denver Broncos getting rid of Tim Tebow.
The televangelist was speaking recently on "The 700 Club," which is apparently still on television. He recited Tebow's accolades from the 2011 season and wondered whether the Broncos were tempting fate by leaving him off their 2012 ark.
"And you just ask yourself," Robertson said, "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, what did Peyton do? He went to the team that wanted him the most. The Broncos were the ones who cast their wandering eyes elsewhere and besmirched the sanctity of the quarterback-franchise marriage! Wish a locust attack on the team or pray that Denver has to go play Detroit in a literal Lions den.
If any individual deserves a smiting, it's John Elway. Turn him into a pillar of salt! He's the one who cast Tebow out to the wilderness of eastern New Jersey, where he'll wander in the Meadowlands for 40 games and part traffic on the Turnpike.
Thanks, Game On
