09:04 AM ET 12.10 | As the Chicago Bears' try to bar Tim Tebow from his sixth straight victory Sunday amid a fever pitch of attention on the polarizing Broncos quarterback, Charles Barkley' made a plea to Chicago: 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."

If the Broncos win this weekend, Barkley's statement only makes them stronger.

Why is Fat Barkley even being quoted? When has his opinion ever mattered and about football no less?

"Tebow's a good kid and I wish him success, but what I really want is for him to fail"

OK Chubby

Patience, this will all work itself out. I mean have you seen him throw a football. Pretty lame.

Barkely's always good for a laugh. As if the Bears need any more inspiration to play hard this weekend!

Exactly, I'm more tired of Sir Irrelevant than Tebow at this point... Every 6 months or so Charles has to make some ridiculous comments so we hear about him. This guy needs to go away.

I love the fact that Tebow keeps proving the naysayers wrong. Thinking about buying a Tebow jersey now.

You could be talking about Hanie at this point, too.

I like it too. One of my favorite moments of the season was Denver beating the Jets after Darrelle Revis talked smack about Denver's offense. Great stuff.

When your flame of fame is flickering... you throw anything on the fire that will keep it alive...

+1...... Revis whiffing on the tackle

Well, I'm kind of tired of the Tebow Thread Madness, myself.

December 10, 2011  09:52 AM ET

That's trrrrrible!

Hanie Madness has been running out of steam too

There is only 1 reason Barkley is quoted about football - he's a racist.
