RE “HAIL Mary passer’’ (Sports, Dec. 13): I don’t care one way or the other about the controversy over Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and his “outward display of his Christian faith,’’ in which he kneels on the field with his head bowed.

Silverman said, “He has the right constitutionally to do it. Having said that, it’s inappropriate. People don’t watch football to watch someone pray.’’
