Pat Robertson attributes Colts’ Super Bowl disaster to pact it didn’t make with the devil
"It’s just extraordinary to me that a team with as great a quarterback as Peyton Manning could lose to a team from as godless a city as New Orleans – not without the devil having some hand in it," said Mr. Robertson, an array of elaborate metallic beads and strands with figures of animals, people, a pitchfork, and National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell draped around his neck and glittering in the television studio klieg lights
Video of the entire segment, during which Mr. Robertson attempts to dissect the Colts’ 31-17 Super Bowl loss to the Saints and explain the key onside kick at the start of the game’s second half, is available on the Christian Broadcast Network’s Web site and on NFL.com.
For his presentation, Mr. Robertson, armed with a telestrator, draws on lessons from the book of Leviticus, the playbook of Bill Belichick, and his personal experience of what happens when you play a pure cover-2. Together, he said, they illustrate what can befall even the best NFL teams "when the devil isn’t in their game plan."
"I was reading, yesterday, a book that was very interesting about what God has to say in the Old Testament about those teams that only have six offensive snaps in the second quarter," said Robertson. "And he used the term that those who do this, they will be ‘smited’ in the Super Bowl. You look at the book of Leviticus and see what it says there about time of possession and keeping the other offense off the field. And the author of this book said, well, ‘not having the ball means you are not able to defend yourself.’ And the more Drew Brees and the Saints have had the ball, the more they have won, the more we have found we are unable somehow to defend ourselves against some of the attacks that are coming against us, either by terrorists or by natural disaster. Could they be connected in some way?"
