Sick of the non-stop Tim Tebow talk/coverage? Tired of the Denver Broncos QB who: wins with a very unorthodox styl,e and mentions God/Jesus/The Lord/savior/his spirituality so much that if you were playing a drinking game for those words while watching a Tebow interview you’d die from alcohol poisoning within the first couple minutes?

Well, Charles Barkley sure is. And he wants the Chicago Bears to do something about it this Sunday.

From ESPNChicago:

“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.”

“It’s clearly a media-driven 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.

“Tim Tebow is a good player. I wish him luck, but if I don’t ever hear the words Brett Favre or Tim Tebow again it won’t be enough.”

Here audio of Barkley’s interview, where he discusses the Chris Paul trade and more by going here

You know when Kurt Warner tells you to “tone it down” such as he did to Tebow, then it’s time to chill out with the bible slurping. Much like it’s time to stop fawning over him, media.

I stopped watching NFL Primetime because of the ANNOYING Chris Berman, and switched over to NFL Network. But now Michael Irvin is equally IRRITATING in his non-stop slurping of Tebow, and Deion $anders whoring of Cam Newton with his non-stop “CAM” singing..they’ve jumped the shark into WWL territory too.
