The backstabber … add Demaryius Thomas to list of Tim Tebow detractors!

Add Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius 
Thomas to the list of people that trash Tim 
Tebow for no reason at all.

Add Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to the list of people that have stabbed polarizing quarterback Tm Tebow in the back – despite the fact that Tebow has never done anything to – or said one bad word – about Thomas.

When asked last week on 790 The Zone in Atlanta whether or not he would miss Tebow now that the team has veteran Peyton Manning running the show and Thomas ripped Tebow, even though he said he wasn’t trying "talk bad" about the controversial signal-caller.

"I ain't going to say I was sad because the only thing they (fans) remember is that pass," said Thomas, referring to the Broncos’ playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime that came courtesy of an 80-yard strike from Tebow.

"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."

Okay, so Thomas wants everyone to know that he feels like he should have been getting more passes from Tebow and that the former Florida superstar isn’t quite the thrower that you need to be in order to have success in the NFL.

In other words, all Thomas did was bad-mouth Tebow while rehashing what most football people and even casual fans know – that Tebow need to become a better passer if he wants to become a starting quarterback in the NFL.

Unfortunately, what Thomas didn’t say was that Tebow has a ton of good qualities that far outweigh his inability to make big-time passes.

Tebow is a character guy that is arguably the best locker room leader in the entire league – and one that truly lifts the play of those around him, mostly because of his rock-solid belief that his team is never out of a game. Not only that, but unlike a lot of more experienced NFL quarterbacks, Tebow generally saved his best play for when it mattered most – in the fourth quarter.

Say what you like about Tim Tebow’s inability to pass the ball efficiently, but there’s one thing you must also call Tebow while trashing his passing – and that would be – winner!
