Denver Broncos wide receiver is widely-known for his 80-yard touchdown catch and run to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Thomas wasn't too fond of the guy who made the throw, ex-Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.

“It’s a business decision,” Thomas said of Tebow, 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 [Manning].”

Thomas went on to say that he and other teammates were fed up with the Tebow coverage.

“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.’”

Still, Thomas acknowledged that Tebow was a good teammate, even if he couldn't make all the plays under center. “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.”
