700 Club founder and televangelist Pat Robertson blindsided former Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and his new team the Denver Broncos by more-or-less telling them "God is going to get you for trading Tim Tebow..."
It seems the 82-year-old Robertson, who has spent the better part of the last several decades having daily one-on-ones with the Big Chief in the Sky, heard it from God himself that he's not very pleased with how badly the Broncos treated their quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow rose to fame with his quiet dignity, humbleness and his now-famous prayer session at the beginning of each football game. Manning had to sit out the entire season with the Colts due to a persistent neck injury which required delicate surgery. After the Broncos made the announcement that Manning was coming on board, it was revealed they had traded Tebow to the New York Jets.
"I think the Denver Broncos treated [Tebow] shabbily," Robertson said on The 700 Club. "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."
He continued his rant by saying, "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," he said.
So, beware! A curse is upon you, Broncos & Manning!!!
