By Robert Paul Reyes

"After the Packers` 27 "17 victory over the Seahawks on Sunday, quarterback Aaron Rodgers took an apparent shot at Seattle`s Russell Wilson.

`I think God was a Packers fan tonight, so he was taking care of us.`

It appears a subtle jab at Wilson, who gave credit to God after the Seahawks beat the Packers in January`s NFC championship game.

You don`t have to be a rocket scientist or a theologian to deduce that The Almighty doesn`t give a rat`s ass about football, I`m sure he has more pressing issues on His mind.

Athletes with give God credit for a victory are trivializing religion, and besmirching themselves. Players like the infamous Tim Tebow who take it a step further and make an ostentatious display of religiosity when they make a great play are an abomination to their faith, and a disgrace to their sport.

Kudos to Aaron Rodgers for taking a none-too-subtle dig at Wilson, who gave credit to God after the Seahawks beat the Packers in January`s NFC championship game.
