He pointed out that Peyton has been injured and if he goes down again they won't have a QB and that "that in my opinion would serve them right."
Actually this is nothing new for Robertson, he's been putting curses on people who think are "sinful" for years. Or more often just declaring that people who misfortune befalls deserve what they got, that it's punishment from God.
So ,famously, after 9-11, he declared that we Americans had been punished for our liberalism. our permissiveness, our secular decadence and turning away from God. Turns out 9-11 was a case of us "reaping what we sow."
After the earthquake in Haiti he said it was it's just desserts for turning to witchcraft in breaking away from France.
His attitude is also symptomatic of a larger attitude I've noticed in many who love Tebow for his religiousity. Denver somehow did something wrong, or at least very "tacky"-this was the claim of a Wall St Journal op-ed for "doing this" to Tebow.
Bare in mind that Tebow had a 46% completion rate and often throws for less than 100 yards in teh game and has far from proven that he is an NFL level quality QB-the jury is still out.
This is a league that once saw the great Joe Montana benched and unceremoniously shipped of to Kansas City for the end of his career in favor of Steve Young. Yet, because Tebow is highly religious he somehow should be exempt from the rules of the NFL. This sentimental editorial at the WSJ of all places!
A good point made on Boomer and Carton this morning is that the is NY-we don't have as many Bible thumpers out here. So Tebow may find a lot more cynicism. It will also be a real drag for all these Jet players who will have to keep answering questions about a backup QB.
I got to admit a few things. One: I'm not a religious guy. I kind of see Tebow mania as a function that he's very white and very religious. More than being white, he is just so whitebread. It irks me a little. On the other hand I'm a Giants fan and find all this comic relief more than anything. Talk about send in the clowns. The clowns being Jets management.
