Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas wishes Tim Tebow never left.
Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas initially was one of the most outspoken players in regards to how he felt about the departure of Tim Tebow.
He stated his case on the radio show 2 Live Stews. “It’s a business decision. I ain’t going to say I was sad because the only thing they remember is that pass [that beat the Steelers in overtime]. 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.”
Now that is a pretty definitive statement that leads anyone to believe that former Georgia Tech standout was happy to see him go. He also straight-up stated that Tebow failed to put the ball in his hands when he was open.
Now Thomas is singing a much different tune.
“Me and Tim, if you look at our stats, we had a great year together,” Thomas said according to USA Today.
“And I wish he would have stayed around so maybe he could have learned some things from Peyton. But it’s over with now, and we’ve got Peyton on our side, so I’m just looking forward to the season.”
In his defense, there is no telling how many times a week that he gets asked about the difference between playing with Tim and Peyton.
It’s the fuzzy memory thing that gets me. Either they played well together or they didn’t. When Tebow left Denver, Thomas bought into the feelings that Tebow could not time routes correctly, read defenses and had shoddy mechanics.
To came back later and say that their time together was great statically is weird and could be a case of selective memory.
Whichever is closer to the truth at this point is moot. Thomas should probably start going with ‘I don’t want to talk about Tim anymore; he’s no longer a Bronco.’
