In what was one of the most memorable plays in this year’s NFL post-season, Tebow, then with the Denver Broncos, hooked up with receiver Demaryius Thomas for an 80-yard touchdown on the first play of overtime to clinch the AFC wild-card win vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Pretty impressive, but according to Thomas, not impressive enough.
Earlier today, Thomas was a guest on the Atlanta radio station, 790 The Zone. Fox News reports that when asked about his former teammate being traded to New York, Thomas wasn’t exactly full of praise for his old quarterback.
“It’s a business decision. I ain’t going to say I was sad because the only thing they remember is that pass. 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 [Manning].”
When asked about the attention that Tebow received during his time with the Broncos, Thomas added, “… You know everything on ESPN was all about Tim,” Thomas said. “That bothered some players too because they would say ‘Tim Tebow Time.’ I felt like it was a team thing. If it wasn’t for the defense most of the time there wouldn’t be no supposed ‘Tim Tebow Time.’”
I think it’s safe to say that Thomas isn’t exactly heartbroken to see Tim Tebow leave the Mile-High City. I don’t imagine that we will be seeing Demaryius Thomas “tebowing” anytime soon.
