Charles Barkley Believes Tim Tebow Is ‘National Nightmare,’ Wonders How Good Quarterback Really Is

Charles Barkley Believes Tim Tebow Is 'National Nightmare,' Wonders How Good Quarterback Really IsCharles Barkley may be in the process of slimming down his waistline thanks to his Weight Watchers scam, but there's one thing a diet won't cure — his big mouth.

The Round Mound of Rebound is back at it, and this time he's flapping his gums about what else, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.

Deadspin points out that Barkley made a radio appearance on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia, and the conversation eventually turned toward Tebow.

"The national nightmare continues," Barkley said."Hey listen, I like Tim Tebow but there comes a point, he had a great game. He's suppoed to have a great game. They want to make it seem like 'Oh so the world is aligned correct.' I'm like, 'He does play quarterback.' He is supposed to play well."

Barkley was then asked whether or not he's had enough Tebowmania.

"I think the world has," he responded before being asked about all of the Tebow fans that are out there.

"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."
