Televangelist Pat Robertson said the Denver Broncos treated Tim Tebow “shabbily,” and said that another injury to the team’s new quarterback, Peyton Manning, “would serve them right.”
Tebow was traded to the New York Jets after the Broncos signed Manning to a 5-year, $96 million deal. Manning cashed in even though he sat out all of last season with a neck injury.
“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,” Robertson said.
Tebow’s pictures were removed from Broncos headquarters when Manning was introduced as the team’s new quarterback this week.
“I think the Denver Broncos treated him shabbily,” Robertson said on “The 700 Club.”
“He won seven games, he brought them [Denver] 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 Pittsburgh. It was a tremendous victory.”
Tebow rallied the Broncos from a 1-4 start to the team’s first playoff appearance since 2005.
But the former Heisman Trophy winner only had a 46.5 percent completion rate during the 2011 season.
