Merril Hoge opened up on Twitter today essentially blasting Tim Tebow saying he was watching tape of the Broncos offense from last year then asks “Orton or Tebow? It’s embarrassing to think the Broncos could win with Tebow!!”
Here’s what’s interesting. Nobody knows what tape Hoge was referring to because it was the smooth practicing veteran, Kyle Orton, who had a 3-10 record for the Broncos last year. It’s Orton who has had multiple 4 game losing streaks.
It was Kyle Orton who got blown out 59-14 at home against the Raiders which is unacceptable in Denver. You’ll notice this is not knocking Kyle Orton, just laying out the facts.
Merril Hoge apparently forgot all that when he logged onto Twitter though.
To some men these could be fighting words but to Tim Tebow it’s inspiration. Tebow responded to his critics saying “…one important thing in sports, it doesn’t matter what anybody else says. #Fuel”
