(Newser) – Pat Robertson doesn't like the way the Denver Broncos unceremoniously kicked Bible-thumping quarterback Tim Tebow to the curb in favor of Peyton Manning, and he wouldn't exactly be upset if Manning got hurt. "The Denver Broncos treated him shabbily," the televangelist declared on The 700 Club, in a segment spotted by Fox Sports. "I mean, they were a nothing team."

"And you just ask yourself, OK, so Peyton Manning was a tremendous MVP quarterback, but he's been injured," Robertson went on. "If that injury comes back, Denver will find itself without a quarterback. And in my opinion, it would serve them right." Others weigh in on the Tebow trade.
