Merril Hoge, who regularly takes over the rotating title of Most Annoying Personality at ESPN, has long been a Tim Tebow detractor (brave man, going out on an island like that). Most recently, he said that the Jets QB is "as phony as a three-dollar bill" and the Jets didn't know "how bad Tim Tebow was."
Finally, someone was brave enough to stand up to Hoge, and that someone was All My Children's Leo du Pres.
@merrilhoge hey merril. Josh Duhamel here. Wondering why you're such a jealous bitch about Tebow? He's 10x the player you were.— Josh Duhamel (@joshduhamel) December 24, 2012
Did you know in that Hoge's injury-shortened, seven-year NFL career, he scored a total of 21 rushing touchdowns? If he stays in the league for seven years, Tebow is on pace to throw 39 TDs. Fun with numbers!
Anywho, now we all find ourselves in the awkward situation of having to choose to side with Merrill Hoge, or Josh Duhamel and Tim Tebow.
