I mean ... seriously?  How Christian of him.  Does he think Tebow should get injured too because the Jets brought him in?

Pat Robertson never said that he hopes for a Manning Injury. Why do you feel it necessary to lie?

He 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."

In my opinion if you say something would "serve them right" you are saying you hope it happens.

I guess you interpret that differently.  Unfortunately "Pat Robertson Says Manning Injury Would Serve Denver Right" is a bit long for a subject title.

You'll have to understand- CaDan is a prominent troll here.

Not how I'd interpret it.  Tebow is a QB in good health with no injury concerns.  Now if Manning remains healthy, he will do a better job, but not by much.  With either Tebow or Manning as the starting QB, Denver was looking at likely going into the playoffs next season because they are in the insipid AFC West.   But either way, they'll likely be a one and done playoff team.   Tebow because he's not as good and Manning because Denver will have to rebuild a new offense since Manning and Tebow play the position completely differently and I don't think they be able to do it in just one season.  If Manning is going have a noticeable effect it'll be starting in the 2013 season, and that's if Manning can stay healthy for two more years.  That's a big gamble Denver is taking.

Of course it's clear that Elway and Fox were not comfortable with building a Denver team suited to playing up Tebow's strengths.  I'm convinced Fox started Tebow last season solely because he hoped he would fail and give him the excuse he wanted to clean house and rebuild the Broncos in his image.  Indeed, Fox may have hoped that with Tebow at the helm the Broncos would win the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.

That said, Tebow is better off with the Jets since the management there has an offensive philosophy suited to his style of play.  If the Broncos hadn't signed Manning, Tebow would have been stuck with a management that didn't really want him.

The real loser in all this is Frank Tripucka.  He gets to have his number 18 unretired just so Manning can play with it.  That's why I rather than saying having Manning get injured would serve them right, I would say what would serve the Broncos in general, and Elway in particular right, is if they have to unretire the number 7 for their next past-his-prime quarterback.

I'm in no way a Pat Robertson or Tebow fan and I'm not seeing the outrage here.  He didn't wish an injury on Manning.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

What he ACTUALLY said was, "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."

It's a bit harsh, but anybody who says he "hopes" for a Manning injury is just as bad as Robertson.
