Thomas not sad to see Tebow go: “I wasn’t getting no balls”

Wild Card Playoffs - Pittsburgh Steelers v Denver Broncos Getty Images

Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas raced 80 yards with a Tim Tebow pass in overtime against the Steelers to score one of the biggest touchdowns of the year in the NFL. It would also prove to be Tebow’s last pass in Denver as a Bronco, and Thomas doesn’t feel bad about that.

Thomas told the 2 Live Stews that he’s happy the Broncos traded Tebow and signed Peyton Manning because, for a wide receiver, playing with a passer like Manning is a lot more fun than playing with a running quarterback like Tebow.

“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.”

Thomas had some big games with Tebow passing to him, but Thomas is only saying what any honest wide receiver would say: Is there any receiver in the NFL who would rather play with Tebow than Manning? Thomas also hinted that he didn’t appreciate the way the media credited Tebow for the Broncos’ success instead of crediting the entire team.

“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.’”

And Thomas said that while Tebow is a good teammate, he wasn’t quite the darling of the locker room that he’s sometimes made out to be. When Tebow missed throws, people noticed.

“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.”

One thing we can be reasonably sure about is that in Denver this year, no one is going to need to call Peyton Manning out about reading defenses better.

    Clearly the devil has made his way into the Broncos locker room. Denver, repent now!

    Just more proof that Tebow is a fraud, created by ham n’ eggers and the media.

    It is hard enough to argue any QB in the history of the NFL much less think anyone would take Tim Tebow over Peyton Manning.

    Wow, shocking revelation. Here I thought guys in an NFL locker would be saying “Hey Timmy, don’t worry buddy, nice try, you’ll get em next time!”.

  9. cardiovascularendurance says: Apr 12, 2012 3:02 PM

    Peyton willingly spreads his balls around to more receivers than Tebow ever will.

  10. marvsleezy says: Apr 12, 2012 3:02 PM

    He dont have no balls – a real man would not allow his girlfriend to be raped by a teammate.

  11. tjacks7 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:02 PM

    In a related story, you have no balls since you left your girlfriend behind while she was passed out drunk to be raped and impregnated by your buddy.

  12. bster01 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:04 PM

    I think what he meant to say was he wasn’t gettin no balls in his mouth.

  13. alaricsrevenge says: Apr 12, 2012 3:04 PM

    He needs to speak the English more gooder. “I wasn’t getting no balls” means you were getting passed to. Higher education in this country for colligate turned Pro athletes is abysmal. Learn to speak. I’m not saying you have to be perfect but at the very least understand how to formulate a comprehensive sentence.

    Cue the grammer police quotes. And the Cue “the cue” quotes. I’ll take it.

  14. nineroutsider says: Apr 12, 2012 3:04 PM

    I’m sure the hate will pure in, but he is speaking truthfully. Most of what Denver did last year was on the defense. It’s a team effort but when the D played solid it allowed for ‘Tebow Time’ to happen.

    If that D picks up where it left off it might be the best one Peyton’s ever had and well that isn’t good for anybody in the AFC…

  15. mymorningstory says: Apr 12, 2012 3:04 PM

    Why is it that team makes me want to see them Fail w/ Peyton Manning at quarterback?

    The lack of respect for a quarterback that took you from 1-4 to the second round of the playoffs is just straight up disgusting. Doesn’t matter if it was Tebow or anyone..

    It’s just sad how disrespectful almost everyone has been since Tebow left the organization.

  16. skeefe1976 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:05 PM

    Awww…that Georgia Tech education. Good English, Demaryius!

  17. montsta says: Apr 12, 2012 3:05 PM

    Thomas just got crossed off Saint Peter’s VIP guest list at the Pearly Gates Club.

  18. 4thquartermagic says: Apr 12, 2012 3:07 PM

    Kinda dissapointed in DT here. If there was one player who had a decent on field connection with Tim it was him.

    Look at the Minnisota game, DT had a monster game.

    Guess this says more about egos and un-deserved credit other players felt Tim got.

    One things for sure, if a stable locker room ( thanks to Brian Dawkins) didn’t care for Tims circus, then the Jets unstable locker room is about to collapse into itself like dying star.

  19. sportswannabe says: Apr 12, 2012 3:07 PM

    Classy. Thomas was doing nothing until Tebow, and I personally watched him drop several easy passes that hit him in the hands/chest.

    I understand being excited about Peyton Manning, and I hope he’s healthy enough to deliver on that excitement, but their needs to be a little more class shown to the guy who was a huge part of dragging a 1-4 team to the playoffs.

  22. dryzzt23 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:10 PM

    Guess what? Falcons WRs were ecstatic when Vick was cut b/c he was such a poor passer that he made them look bad as a group.

    That is why, when Matt Schaub came into a game, suddenly the WRs were really good. Same thing happened when Matt Ryan took the reins.

    I wonder if Eagles WRs would say the same thing about Vick…I bet they would

  23. duanethomas says: Apr 12, 2012 3:11 PM

    #1. She wasn’t his girlfirend, just some groupie, all bets are off with them and a jury thought so also.

    #2. If I played wideout for the Broncos I would have bought Tebow plane ticket to NY..first class.

    #3. Wait until the NY media get ahold of old Tebow after he one hops open guys. It will be Brutal.

  24. indywilson40 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:12 PM

    Skip Bayless said last month that Thomas would miss the obvious chemistry that he and Tebow had together…..and he was serious.

    It’s pukes like you that distort and ruin a persons reputation out of pure ignorance. Read the FACTS. He left the apartment – it wasn’t HIS girlfriend, it wasn’t COX girlfriend (Cox had a girlfriend, who was passed out in the other room). Is DT supposed to assume Cox was going to have sex with that woman?

    Oh and by the way – Cox was found not guilty after the girls performed “Girl on Girl” action after he left. Cox is still trash, but DT is clean and has nothing to do with the incident or the girl. FACT

  26. dryzzt23 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:13 PM

    Don’t diss on Tebow

    Thomas is a poor WR at best, that is probably why Tebow didn’t throw to him, he drops too many passes and runs the wrong route too often

  27. ndgarretjax says: Apr 12, 2012 3:13 PM

    ZING!!

  29. cannonballdookie says: Apr 12, 2012 3:16 PM

    He’s upset because all he can do is run fast and go deep, he may have had a career season because he was seeing single coverage every game because of their rushing attack. Their offense was just run, run, go deep.

    I feel like you can take him out of the game very easily with a safety over the top because I can’t see him going over the middle and catching passes that are threaded into coverage like Peyton throws.

  30. nomoreseasontix says: Apr 12, 2012 3:17 PM

    Ive been saying this for sooooooo long, I knew that the Broncos DEF was getting sick of the media with Tebow Time, I’ve been arguing with this Tebownites the whole damn season, now he is gone and the team speaks..

  32. mike8016 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:24 PM

    He is absolutely right about the defence keeping them in the game. Tebow was lucky they were playing so well.

  33. frankdatank23 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:25 PM

    manning is not only in his late 30s, but coming off 4 serious surgeries……when he starts playing like he did in 2010; or goes down to injury; and some developmental rookie is in there stinking it up, losing games…. we’ll see how happy they are to have sent tebow packing….. not making the playoffs next season would be a hilarious flop in denver. “can’t wait”

  34. footballmaven says: Apr 12, 2012 3:26 PM

    First of all, hard to believe this guy went to Ga Tech, which, secondly, was STRICTLY all run/no pass, so why is Thomas complaining now about getting no balls?

  35. dukemarc says: Apr 12, 2012 3:30 PM

    Didn’t Thomas have his biggest receiving games with Tebow at QB? Heck, Decker was the #1 guy until Tebow became QB – I’m not a Tebow guy, but Thomas might want to look in the mirror if he’s looking for someone to blame for his body of work.

  36. nflofficeadmin says: Apr 12, 2012 3:31 PM

    At the beginning of the 2011 season Thomas was quoted as saying, “I don’t wanna be no bust”. Now he’s throwing the only guy that made him a winner under the bus.

    Hopefully in 2012 he can go from gettin no balls, to getting mo balls.

  37. metalhead65 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:32 PM

    all the mjore reason to watch denver fail this year. can’t wait for it will take some time excuses when they start the season losing. how many balls was he getting when orton was the starter? how great was that defense and offense before tebow started? the reason the won was tebow and the running game kept the other teams offense off the field and kept the broncos defense fresh. again he and all the yebow basher neglect to mention tebow was todded out there to fail.how many reps was he getting in practice? how much time were the coaches spending with him to try and help him get better? answer zero until they decide to make it a option offense to fit him. I will cheering for the broncos to lose this season as much as I was for them to win last year.

  38. pastabelly says: Apr 12, 2012 3:37 PM

    No Balls = No Money

    Thomas isn’t stupid. If you’re a receiver and you play with a top quarterback, your stats and your contract get a bump. As others have said on this thread, any decent WR or TE on the Broncos roster would have gladly paid for a first class one-way ticket to get Tebow out of town. Can’t wait to see Tebow bounce his balls at Santonio Thomas feet (you can read that in any way you want).

  39. eaglesnoles05 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:38 PM

    You got enough balls to make you relevant in the NFL again.

  40. denvaluvr says: Apr 12, 2012 3:38 PM

    Why didn’t DT talk about all his dropped passes last year?

  41. tluke25 says: Apr 12, 2012 3:39 PM

    This guy was considered a major bust when Kyle Orton was the QB, and then when Tebow became the starter, he finally started making some plays. … and then during the Steeler game he was no longer considered a bust, but a promising young talent. Tebow saved this dude’s career.

  42. alaricsrevenge says: Apr 12, 2012 3:39 PM

    I’m sure DT and Tebow can reconnect and make amends during wild card weekend, which of course would be the beginning of their respective off seasons…

  43. nflfollower says: Apr 12, 2012 3:41 PM

  45. JSpicoli says: Apr 12, 2012 4:04 PM

    Grammar continues it’s fast demise.

  46. drexelvol says: Apr 12, 2012 4:08 PM

    “It would also prove to be Tebow’s last pass in Denver as a Bronco, and Thomas doesn’t feel bad about that.”

    Um, whut? Timmy went 9 for 26 the next weekend vs. the Pats. So…not his last pass as a Bronco. His last TD pass, yes, not his last pass though.

  47. dstellhorn317 says: Apr 12, 2012 4:08 PM

    DT better do all his sucking up to PM while he can, because once he starts dropping passes PM won’t be throwing him the ball much. Just ask Pierre Garcon.

  48. rcali says: Apr 12, 2012 4:09 PM

    What happens when Peyton’s neck falls off during week 1? Tebow will not be there to heal him.

  49. lks311 says: Apr 12, 2012 4:11 PM

    The Tebowites will be all over Thomas, but aside from his grammatical issues, its what many pundits (and fans) have been saying all along: Nice football player, but, not a NFL caliber passer. And, no professional, whether it’s sports of business, appreciates when a disproportionate amount of credit is doled out.

    PS
    Let’s not have the “Tim made Demaryius comments out there”. That would simply be an untruth.

  50. therillest says: Apr 12, 2012 4:15 PM

    With all these guys “selling out” now, they sure as hell better make the playoffs….because if they don’t and the Jets do…its gonna get real Jacksonvillish in Denver.

  51. ibreathefootball says: Apr 12, 2012 4:21 PM

    Good luck getting all the balls you want for $20mil/yr and a crooked neck! If Peyton doesn’t win 2 playoff games, why get him?

  52. dryzzt23 says: Apr 12, 2012 4:23 PM

    I think DT must have skipped every English class he was sever scheduled for.

  53. nodindenver says: Apr 12, 2012 4:27 PM

    If D Thomas knows what is good for him he should be out catching passes from Manning like Decker is in lieu of doing interviews; speaking in general!! Manning is going to make somebody a superstar and you still seem to have a hurt pinky. A smart WR would have set up camp in Manning’s front yard and would only speak when saying good morning Peyton.

  54. hikohadon says: Apr 12, 2012 4:28 PM

    You’d think Tebow would be the one QB that would be glad to get you balls.

  55. cuda1234 says: Apr 12, 2012 4:28 PM

    That’s pretty much the same thing Gator wr Deonte Thompson said after Timmy left G’vlle. When it was reported by the Orlando Sentinel, Timmy’s weekend getaway buddy Urban Meyer blew a gasket, went after the reporter and threatened to block the Sentinel from ever covering the Gators again. Sometimes the truth hurts.

  56. starrbrew says: Apr 12, 2012 4:28 PM

    So the Broncos lost and didn’t play the next week against the Patriots or are you saying that Tebow didn’t complete a pass against the Patriots.

  57. cuda1234 says: Apr 12, 2012 4:28 PM

    And why doesn’t anyone give Matt Prather more credit for the Denver winning streak. Didn’t he hit a couple of 60-yard FG’s?

  58. 49erstim says: Apr 12, 2012 4:30 PM

    I will gladly defend Tebow as a man, but not as a QB. He showed a lot if guts late in games last year. When interviewed he gave the glory to GOD and his teammates. DT is talking about stats. I understand (former WR) that he wants attention and opportunities, but is it really worth the bad publicity to throw Tebow under the bus when he is thousands of miles away? Talk about no balls. Also ESPN is a PR machine that feeds on itself, who cares what those d-bags say? You were 1/2 of an awesome playoff pass highlight that will be remembered for many years… Just be happy… And work on those hands by the way because if you drop too many of PMs balls you’ll quickly fall out of favor.

  59. mwcarolina says: Apr 12, 2012 4:30 PM

    I’m sure the hate will pure in
    ——————————————————–
    yeah, the hate of Tim Tebow. Honestly, i DISagree with what Thomas said about not getting balls his way, give me a break!!! when Decker went down, Thomas was the guy Tebow looked for most, Thomas was the guy, if anyone has sour grapes it’s Royal, not Thomas. why wasnt Thomas having big games with Orton for??? anyways, this is classless in my book. Tim Tebow may not have been great, but the way Thomas acted here showed no class. he basically bashed Tebow, a guy who helped his career and said that he never threw to him. if Peyton Manning doesnt throw your way, will you complain??? because Manning wont just throw to a guy because he’s a go to WR, he looks at all his WRs. if Decker becomes to go to guy next year and Thomas has a down year, i wont be sad about that after these comments, i understand trying to support your new QB, but just say something like, “this guy is a legend for a reason” or say, “he still has it” not praise Manning and BURY your ex teammate.

  60. boilerup1869 says: Apr 12, 2012 4:30 PM

  62. armyltc says: Apr 12, 2012 4:31 PM

    M Smith is just a clone of the Tebow hating Florio. Why are the two of you so jealous of the kid? Could it be that he has already accomplished more is his young life that either of you ever will? Can you go 2 consecutive days without a Tebow hating article? Both of you are pathetic and need to get a life. Why cant you just leave the kid alone and let him do what he does on and off the field? In 2 or 3 years after the dust has settled both of you will be eating crow. He will succeed as a QB in the NFL and even if he doesn’t his life will be fulfilled. What will you lives show in the end Smith and Florio? Either of you can’t hold his jock, on or off the field.

    Funny how short people’s memories can become, sometimes in a matter of weeks… like here.

    Demaryianne: Your team goes nowhere last year w/o St. Timothy – just ask Kyle Orton.

    If the AFC West is so terrible and the Donco D was so wonderful, how was it they finished 8&8, tripped and fell into the playoffs and still needed a win in OT to beat the Steelers, then gave up over 40 for the second time to the Pats?

    That dominant, amazing defense also gave up over 40 to the Bills, the Pack and needed Christian Ponder to commit complete buffoonery so Now-Unspecial Tim could win the game for them again.

    And you better hope you and your crack team of WR’s doesn’t drop another 28 passes this year D, or you’ll be finding out just how it is when Timmy isn’t your QB – Peyton will have that @ss! And again… you “won’t be gettin’ no balls.” Coincidentally, you’ll need a miracle from your QB again this year so… enjoy that. Guess the NFL is still gonna go ahead and make you play those games though, sorry kid.

  65. moondog7 says: Apr 12, 2012 4:50 PM

    Not a lot of love for Tebow from Denver. I am a little disapointed in their players/organization. Guess they didn’t all believe in each other like tebow thought after every miracle win. It was a special season but how quickly they forget about you. so sad

    A couple people have brought this up now, so I just wanted to point out that the article clearly states “IN” Denver, as in it was Tebow’s last pass thrown as a Bronco in his home stadium, IN Denver. Thus, the author is correct since Tebow’s last game as a Bronco was on the road, against the Patriots.

  75. TheWizard says: Apr 12, 2012 5:40 PM

    If the team thinks they deserved more of the credit, maybe they could have won some games for Orton, and Tebow wouldn’t have even been in there.

  76. coseybedaman says: Apr 12, 2012 5:49 PM

    Schmucks like this guy drive me nuts. He has been a complete 1st round bust since entering the NFL. Tim Tebow made him famous with the biggest win in Denver since Elway’s playing days, and he is going to criticize. This guy has been a total disappointment since joining the NFL. Was it Kyle Orton’s fault too that he had 283 balls his whole rookie year, and he had 208 or so in his last GAME ALONE with Tebow??

    When he said “IN” Denver, I didn’t associate with an actual location, I associated with the team. MY BAD.

    I’m pretty sure noone heard of D. Thomas before that big OT pass TD from Tebow. Of course any receiver with a pulse would take P. Manning over Tebow (& just about everyone else but Brees or Brady). Still, I don’t remeber anybody ever talking up Thomas as a monster fantasy WR before or during Tebow’s starts. That’s on Thomas, not Tebow.
    Incidentally, Tebow was given most of the credit for those wins last year despite lackluster stats because he was the ONLY variable that changed between the 1 – 4 start & the 8 – 5 finish (playoffs included). I’m as tired of hearing about Tebow as anyone else, but that doesn’t change the fact he’s a winner. With a decent run game & defense, sometimes that’s enough. Go ahead & ask,Trent Dilfer, Brad Johnson, Big Ben, or even Peyton Manning, or Tom Brady if they can find their completion %, total QBR, or QB rating on any of their Super Bowl rings. With very few exceptions, all of the above named Super Bowl winners had fairly pedestrian stats in their victories. Strong defense &/or running game is to thank for most of their rings.

    That’s not a surprise- Tebow couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn from 10 paces.

    We now know that Georgia Tech has a baskett weaving degree and that DT has no balls.

  83. granadafan says: Apr 12, 2012 7:16 PM

    It’s rather ironic that Thomas didn’t get “no balls” from a QB that is the darling of the Tea bagger party.

  84. raiderapologist says: Apr 12, 2012 7:48 PM

    If Thomas says, “I don’t want to not be getting no balls”, would that mean he does want more balls? trubroncfan07, step in and clear this up for me.

    Sorry Denver fans and Mr. Thomas. Your defense stunk. They gave up points to mediocre and poor teams and they got lit up like a New Years Ball in Times Square against teams with elite offenses. Care to tell me Mr. Thomas and Denver Broncos fans who are your Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne at Wide Out? Those guys are what made Manning. They drew the rolled bracket coverage and Manning would find the mismatch or because Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison are two HOF caliber type receivers that it did not matter if you covered them with two or three men, they still beat you. Mr. Thomas, number 1 receivers get their yards and catches despite who they have throwing to them. Just look up Reggie Wayne’s numbers this year with the bozo he had throwing to him to prove my point. What is your excuse Mr. Thomas? The truth of the matter is that the Broncos do not have any receiver threats that worry the league. That includes you Mr. Thomas. Hey Denver Fans, Tampa had a notoriously sub par offense for many years during the Dungy era, but their Defense did not give up points or yards like your Denver Defense and they won and were Super Bowl contenders (8-8 is not winning Denver), yet you are delusional in blaming everything on the Tim Tebow and the offense when the stats show that not to be the case. Tampa’s Defense never blamed anything on their offense. The difference between their defense and the Denver Bronco’s defense, they were champions and elite, the Broncos are not. The Broncos have a sub par defense, no wide receiver threats and an over the hill running back. Please tell me how Denver Fans Peyton Manning and his offense of no skill players and the Denver Bronco’s subpar defense is going to be able to beat: Carolina’s Offense, Falcon’s Offense, Saint’s Offense, Pittsburg’s Offense, Raven’s Offense, New England’s Offense, Texan’s Offense, etc? When Tom Brady (for a 3rd time in a row) or Drew Brees or a healthy Big Ben shreds that defense is Peyton Manning and Mr. Thomas going to play defense and tackle somebody?

    Some of u guys need to walk with Tebows jock strap in your mouth. He is & was a horrible passer. In the age of the passing offense you will loose with Tebow. I’m sorry. He isn’t a good nfl QB. He’s in his 3rd yr & still trying to get his throwing technique together, when he needs to be learning how to read defenses. Santonio Holmes will beg for a trade next yr when he catches 5 balls from Tebow. You guys who blindly brag on Tebow needs to wake up!! He won’t get better & he’s a 3rd stringer at BEST! His popularity is why he getting 2nd string work. No one in the history of football been as bad as him & people make excuses for him. He’s a great kid but a HORRIBLE PASSING QB!

    I’m glad one player had the guts to say what every one on the team was thinking.only the media and tebows parents think he is a good qb.there is not a coach in the nfl that would make him there starting qb…

    i guess headlines write themselves these days.

    and the very first commenter summed it up perfectly. well done.

    best headline ever

  90. spider1952 says: Apr 12, 2012 11:57 PM

    A year ago there would have been such a fervor of crazies calling for DT’s head. Now most people are agreeing that DT was right. Sure appears to me that Tebowmania is flaming out.

  91. broncoman51 says: Apr 13, 2012 12:39 AM

    Well, if he hasn’t noticed, Manning is becoming best friends with decker. Also, Manning loves to throw to his tight ends. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see Thomas’s numbers actually go down. I wonder what his excuse next year will be. Hopefully he takes an English class though, so we can actually understand what he’s saying.

  92. grannyvi4 says: Apr 13, 2012 2:01 AM

    He’s right….he’s got no balls. Way to throw your former teammate under the bus.

  93. rexryanstoecheese says: Apr 13, 2012 10:37 AM

    Dudes!

    gotta chill on the double negative thing. It’s common for people to use them, especially pro-athletes.
    Jagger did it on one the Stones most famous songs:
    “I can’t get no Satisfaction”.

    Plus, who cares how he speaks, we didn’t pay for his education….or did we?

    In this country, there’s not telling anymore

    Demaryius Wonderlic score please?

    The over/under is 8
    ————————————–

    You’re you are the dumb one here.

    DT scored a 34, which was tenth best for his draft class.

    He’s a southern kid who had a pretty hard life.
