We all saw the pass that Tim Tebow threw to Demaryius Thomas to upset the Steelers in January. You would think that Thomas will miss working with Tebow. Well……no.
“It’s a business decision,” Thomas said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “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.”
He also talked about how players would call him out on the throws he made, and that Tebowmania rubbed players the wrong way.
“You would have people calling him out saying, ‘Tim, you gotta make that throw. You gotta read the defenses better,’ ” Thomas said. “Players on offense trying to get him better.”
“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.’ ”
All I can say is that the Jets had better win. Everything is healed when you are winning, well, usually. If you look at these quotes, there clearly was some animosity even when the Broncos were winning. I have said it before and I have said it again, this has all the makings of a taylor made Jets disaster.
