Default Ralph Wilson rips Tim Tebow pick: "Denver panicked"

NFL owners aren't usually in the business of critiquing other teams' draft picks. But Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson ripped the Denver Broncos today for their decision to draft Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.

"Denver panicked,'' Wilson said. "He's a good player but we had no interest in taking Tebow. We were not moving up to take Tebow."

There was a belief in some quarters that the Broncos picked Tebow where they did in part because the Denver brain trust thought the Bills were looking to move up and take Tebow. But Bills G.M. Buddy Nix said that wasn't true, and now Wilson has said it even more forcefully.

Wilson also praised the player the Bills did take, Clemson running back C.J. Spiller.

"I think he was the best player in the draft,'' Wilson said. "We've been dull for 10 years . . . no excitement. We've got to create some excitement.''

When it's time to negotiate a contract, Spiller's agent may remind Wilson that he thought Spiller was the best player in the draft.

Yup. Draft day rumors just appear in a vacuum.

And yes, Buffalo is dull...but its been alot longer than 10 years.

Probably not the most convincing support of the argument NOT to take Tebow. He doesn't even realize that by saying this, he's actually admitting that they WERE probably looking to take him. Seriously. Is Spiller getting anywhere near the juice that Tebow is right now in the media or among the fans? Not even close.

Going off my years of fantasy drafting, the only time I say things like that is when I get skunked out of a guy picking before me, so this cinches it that the Bills were looking to take him.

I don't think they panicked. It seems like the Broncos had a good idea who they wanted and when they were going to take him.

I said it before..Our front office has no patience..If they get a hint about a player being taken by a team, they panic and give away draft picks.
It happened last year and this year.
It's time for Bowlen to hire a GM.
Mcd should just concentrate on coaching.

Sure, Ralph. And the grapes were sour, too.

I dont see how they "panicked" when it seemed like they knew exactly what they were gonna do from go. Didnt they tell tebow's agent their plan exactly?

What meant is that Denver moved up thinking that Buffalo is going to get Tebow.

Ralph Wilson gives me the ****ing creeps. He always reminds me of that dude in Hannibal, the old rich one in a wheelchair with the ****ed up face.

Dude....they traded down TWICE yesterday. That kills any pretend argument you might have about them having no patience.

Without more evidence, I don't buy it. Sounds more like he's bitter that he didn't get his player that Jim Kelly wine n' dined. Otherwise, seems out of character for a NFL team president to take an unnecessary jab at Denver.

Meanwhile, he goes on to explain the very reason WHY Tebow would have been a justifiable pick for them based on his stated concern, "I think he [CJ Spiller] was the best player in the draft,'' Wilson said. "We've been dull for 10 years . . . no excitement. We've got to create some excitement.''

Spiller clearly wasn't considered the best player in the draft by most which shows the emphasis the Bills put on creating excitement. So Tim Tebow doesn't potentially bring that excitement? Just reading between the lines...

Because what you posted is not worth the time it took you to type it and post it.

You waste time regurgitating the same nonsense. The only thing you change is how you present it.

And the value we gave to Balt to move back into the first round was exactly what we got in return to move up.

So.

Shut up.

Seriously.
