    Hey, Denver was 1-4 before HE came back, and then they started winning. So of COURSE it was all having HIM in the starting lineup. Yes, there's no doubt, he wasn't there and they lost, got back in the starting lineup and they won. yes, ELVIS DUMERVILLE was the difference!

      Not in the same way. Not at all. Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark, even Pierre Garcon all got time in the spotlight. Manning is a private and businesslike player and person. Not only will the credit he receives be warranted, but the people giving him credit won't be complete idiots. Manning doesn't have the same blind devoted fanbase of nutcases that Tebow does.
      However, when it comes down to credit on the field there is no way you could possibly deny that Manning gets virtually all the credit for the Colts playoff years. If you listened to the announcers, every pass he threw was only successful because he called the play, audibled for the matchup, had a laser quick release to avoid the sack, and threw a perfect pass to an averagely talented receiver corps who were always covered. He dominated the sports media markets for the Colts, he got every segment and commercial. When the Colts won a game the headline and picture always included Manning some way in it.

      He may not bask in it, and he definitely deserves it because he's 1 of the 5 best QB's ever, but he was the dominant personality on the Colts. When people talk about the 2000's Colts the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd thing they talk about is Manning.

        This is all probably true. But as a WR I would find that infinitely preferable to Tebow Time.

          So Demaryius Thomas would rather allow Perrish Cox have sex and impregnate his girlfriend than have ESPN talk about "Tebow Time!"

          :P

              This seems at least as plausible as the Tebow Time storyline.

                Tebow Time > Peyton Manning's playoffs performances...

                  At least Thomas has a chance to catch some of that action.

                      This guy can't wait to see Tebow smite you heathens. Haven't you fools yet realized that logic is no longer applicable?

                            That sure as hell doesn't include me. Tebow is a joke. And this thread is funny. You mean to tell me a WR would rather play with a HoF QB than a gimmicky QB with no arm? The hell you say!

                              Actually, I think the most interesting thing to take away from Thomas' comments are that Tebow's leadership and intangibles were clearly overrated. The entire team clearly did not rally around Tebow or play ten times harder, because Timmy Terrific was leading them. If that were the case, I don't think you'd see so many of his teammates act so cavalierly about his departure.

                                This is such a pointless thread. Tebow's had receivers complaining about him since Florida. With Tebow it always has been, and always will be, a narrative about whether he can win games on his own. That's what bugs people. He distracts from the team concept, and gets a disproportionate amount of praise, seemingly on account of the fact that he wins despite playing without any sense of football strategy. Receivers are expected to run disciplined routes, but Tebow doesn't play disciplined; he does whatever he wants. And he did it at Florida, and he did it in Denver, and he's always had a winning record, so he gets the accolades. Denver was limited by Tebow last year in many ways, but watching the fourth-quarter drives he put together, you know that was all Tebow, too. He's at his best when he doesn't have to execute a specific gameplan. But I just don't really get why it's considered newsworthy that his former teammate is excited to play with Peyton Manning. He'll get to play his position the way he's used to playing it, instead of being a downfield run-blocker and occasionally chasing down a deep ball.
