Barkley to Bears on Tebow: 'Stop the madness'
“I want to make a personal plea to Lance Briggs, Brian Urlacher, Mr. [Julius] Peppers, please stop the madness,” Barkley said Friday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “I’m just so tired ... I like Tim Tebow. He seems like a good kid, and I wish him success, but I am Tebowed out. So this is my personal plea for you three guys, please stop this madness.”
Barkley also said he believes Tebow’s only getting run in the media because people like to argue about whether or not Tebow is a good quarterback. (Or something like that.)
“It’s clearly a media-drive story,” Barkley said. “They just want you to argue about Tim Tebow. Dude, let the kid play. If he can play, good. If he can’t play it will show. But to have this argument every single day after five or six games is just ridiculous.”
Everyone says they are Tebowed out, yet the numbers tell a different story.
ESPN knows it. The Denver Post knows it. And yes, we know it. We see the numbers, too.
Why do you think I just ran a story about what Charles Barkley thinks about Tim Tebow? I try to tell myself I'm above this every day. I desperately want to write about things like the prevent defense and the zone biltz.
