Charles Barkley on Tim Tebow: ‘The National Nightmare Continues’
Charles Barkley may like Tim Tebow, but like many others, he can’t take the media’s coverage of the Broncos quarterback. During an interview on 97.5 FM in Philadelphia with Mike Missanelli, Barkley made it clear that he’s had enough of Tebow.
“The national nightmare continues. Hey listen, I like Tim Tebow but there comes a point, he had a great game. He’s supposed to have a great game. They want to make it seem like, oh the world is aligned correct. I’m like ‘he does play quarterback. He is supposed to play well.’”
Host: “So you’ve had enough of Tebow?”
“I think the world has.”
Host: “There’s a lot of Tebow fans out there. I’ve had enough and I’m not a big Tebow guy and they’re just killing me about Tebow.”
“First of all Mike I don’t know anything you said about Tebow, but let’s just say the jury is still out on Tebow. He seems like a nice kid, but these ups and downs are so different. The jury is still out on Tebow. Just because he had a great game and made four or five great throws [Sunday] doesn’t mean he’s gonna be a great starting quarterback in the NFL.”
Many religious people like to say that Tim Tebow was put here to represent the Lord. Folks on the internet think he’s here to troll society. Personally, I think Tim Tebow was placed on Earth to antagonize Charles Barkley.
Sorry to break it to you, Sir Charles, but the country’s desire for Tebow coverage hasn’t been satiated. Maybe you’ll get your wish if Denver loses to New England this weekend.
