Charles Barkley must really dislike Tim Tebow. The renowned basketball announcer was interviewed on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia where he was asked about Tebow leading the Broncos to a playoff victory. Here is what he said.
On Tim Tebow leading the Broncos to another win:
“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 yesterday doesn’t mean he’s gonna be a great starting quarterback in the NFL.”
This isn’t the first time Barkley has criticized Tebow and it probably won’t be the last. As long as Tebow keeps winning, he’s going to be in the news. Barkley doesn’t like it, but he can’t do anything about it. I’m not a Tebow fan by any stretch, but right now it’s good for the NFL. Maybe other fans should realize this by now.
