C.J. Stroud expressed his faith in Jesus Christ after a playoff win, but the official “Sunday Night Football” account edited out the mention of Jesus, leading to backlash on social media.

Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb criticized the network for the edit, saying it was disrespectful to the players and their fans.

Stroud emphasized the importance of his faith in keeping him grounded and helping him through the ups and downs of football.

“It’s very lame,” McNabb said.

“Players always express that as well, and to have that cut out is truly, it’s disrespectful,” he said.

“There are a lot of people out there who are Christians and believe in Jesus, and those who don’t believe in Jesus, still, they don’t feel like that’s disrespectful to them,” he said.

“To cut it out and be a media outlet that’s focusing on the game interviewing these players, the fans want to feel as one with the player. And when they hear a player talk, they break down everything that young man says — and young woman. … I just think, for NBC, they stuck their foot in a hole at this particular point. They gotta get themselves out.”

“You’re a media outlet that’s supposed to express and show and display what these young men are all about. This is their opportunity and their platform to be able to step on stage and tell people and show people what type of individual they are, and C.J. Stroud is doing that,” McNabb said.

“That’s why you hear a lot of athletes say, ‘I can use my platform to reach out to millions of people.’”

“For NBC to do this … they really have to go back … and evaluate themselves. They have to get this thing corrected because that’s definitely not the direction it needs to be going in at this point.”
