Televangelist Pat Robertson says that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning should be punished with an injury because the team traded devout Christian Tim Tebow.

"I think the Denver Broncos treated [Tebow] shabbily," Robertson explained on Thursday. "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 -- it was a tremendous victory."

He continued: "And you just ask yourself, OK, 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."

Despite a few snags, the Denver Broncos announced late Wednesday that they had traded Tebow to the New York Jets.

Manning was picked up by the Broncos after missing last season with the Indianapolis Colts due to an injury. The 14-year NFL veteran has been named most valuable player four times.
