ESPN NFL analyst Merril Hoge has been one of the most vocal Tim Tebow detractors since the former Heisman Trophy winner entered the NFL, and he laid into the Jets quarterback on Monday in response to the report that Tebow asked out of the Wildcat package.
During “SportsCenter” on Monday, Hoge was part of a roundtable discussion that included Adam Schefter and Ron Jaworski. After a year of not having much negative to say about Tebow, Hoge got his chance to rip the quarterback.
“I think he’s phony as a three dollar bill,” Hoge said of Tebow. “At the end of the day, what have I heard? That he would do anything at any time. ‘You ask me to do it, I’ll do it.’ All of a sudden now it’s ‘I want to play quarterback or I’m not going to play Wildcat’? There shouldn’t even be this story coming.
“He said ‘I’ll do anything for the team.’ That’s all I’ve ever heard about him. I think shows what he’s really about.”
Hoge also cautioned the Jacksonville Jaguars, who reportedly are ex

There is a reason that Super Bowl Champs aren’t getting much attention, even though they are in the midst of wasting a three-game lead in their division by losing six of eight in the second hand of the season. The New York Jets are taking all the attention away from them, much like they did [...]
It doesnt take a perfect Wunderlic score to comprehend Tim Tebows time with the New York Jets is winding down.
What initially seemed to be a bold move to add a new offensive dimension with Tebow not to mention increased publicity in the same town as the defending Super Bowl champion Giants contributed largely to creating a dysfunctional atmosphere that helped produce an embarrassing...

I thought maybe, perhaps, I would have a year off of dealing with Tebow mania. In case you did not have enough of it last season, it has returned again this year. First the New York Jets came out to say that they will look to shop...
According to ESPNNewYork.com, New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was so frustrated that Greg McElroy was named the starter instead of him that he told the coaches to take him out of their wildcat package.
Tebow has been frustrated all season by his lack of playing time, but it culminated Tuesday upon hearing he would be passed over for a starting opportunity when Ryan decided...
Someone made this manger scene complete yesterday for their Christmas Holiday. It included a Tim Tebow who happened to be Tebowing right by a manger with the usual Christmas decoration. Tebow has recently been under fire by some sports personalities for refusing to run the wildcat for the New York Jets that never really utilized him. It has been rumored that a trade of Tim Tebow...
It’s basically a foregone conclusion that Tim Tebow’s tenure
with the New York Jets has nearly come to an end, but Chris Mortensen of ESPN,
via Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk, is now reporting that it’s “a
virtual certainty” that the quarterback will play for the Jacksonville Jaguars
In fact, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that it’s “a
ESPN has quite the collection of douchejuice up in its Bristol headquarters, but Merril Hoge may be the king. Perhaps his too tight in the neck shirts deprive his brain of essential nutrients. That...

Tom Brady led a comeback win over the Jaguars while the Miami Dolphins, fueled by what were very slim (now non-existent) playoff hopes, gave the Bills and Jets a lesson in fighting to the end. Meanwhile, Ebenezer Ryan ruined Tiny Tim Tebow's Christmas.
If it wasn’t bad enough for Tim Tebow who was overlooked by Rex Ryan for Greg McElroy, he also had to watch Jeremy Kerley play wildcat for the New York Jets.
Tebow, who is fully healty, had to watch as Kerley played in the Wildcat, took a direct snap and threw a 42-yard completion to Clyde Gates to set up the Jets’ first touchdown. With that one pass, Kerley eclipsed Tebow’s...
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan on Monday responded to a report that backup quarterback Tim Tebow asked not to be used in any Wildcat packages in Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. Tebow was active, but did not play in the 27-17 loss to the Chargers. "I'm not going to get into private conversations that I have with players," Ryan said. "But it was...
The Jets’ quarterback saga just refuses to end.
After last weekend’s decisive 27-17 loss to the San Diego Chargers, it looks like things can’t get much worse for New York. On top of the loss, itself, third-string quarterback Greg McElroy went down with an injury, and is listed as questionable for Week 17. So, could Tim Tebow or Mark Sanchez get that last start?
Well, one place...
Mike Francesa wants the Jets to start Tim Tebow, you know -- the colossal joke.

The Jets deserved this. This 27-17 loss to the Chargers was Woody Johnson, Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum’s reward for having no plan at all on offense, acquiring Tim Tebow, and failing to improve the Jets skill positions during the offseason. This week’s No Huddle is brought to you by, the Jets offensive line.
Greg McElroy was sacked 11 times. In one game. Keep in...
