Thomas to Tebow

April 15, 2012 - Mike Mathison
Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas decided to open his mouth and whine about Tim Tebow last week on 790 The Zone in Atlanta. Thomas played at Georgia Tech.

"I ain't going to say I was sad (to see Tebow go) because the only thing they remember is that pass (against Pittsburgh)," Thomas said. "You gotta go back and look at the rest of the games. I wasn't getting no balls, and you had to make some of these plays where some players were open, and he is not making the throws. But I don't want to talk bad about Tim, but hey I am happy we got Peyton."

So, Thomas, who has since backpedaled like a great defensive back, would rather have caught twice as many balls from Kyle Orton while the team went 6-10 and missed the playoffs?

Why can't people just stay classy and say something like, "Tim was a really good teammate and thank him for what he did for our club. But, the decision was made to go with Peyton and we are all looking forward to getting to know him and playing with him."

Seriously, how tough is that?

"When I had my interview, I wasn't trying to go in the interview and just put Tebow down as a quarterback," Thomas told KKFN in Denver in a USA Today article. "I was just answering the questions, you know? But ever since the interview, it's just been -- I've been getting badmouthed left and right. Like, 'You're not a good receiver anyway,' and all this and that.

"(Tebow) gave me the chance to make plays," said Thomas while clarifying his earlier statements. "And I respect that, and I love Tim for that. It wasn't no hard feelings or nothing against Tim. He's a great player. If we had him, I'd love to have him. If we had him still, there wouldn't be no problem (with) me playing with him. It's just that we've got another quarterback now. I really don't talk ... much about Tim no more since he's not here with us."

You do it right the first time and you don't have to backtrack.
