Tebow, Hoge and Winning

Remember this illustrious quote from Merril   Hoge back on August 3?

"Sitting watching tape off bronco offense from last year! Orton or Tebow? It's embarrassing to think the broncos could win with tebow!!"

So what did Hoge have to say yesterday?

Kolber:  “Tebow alluded to this, credit to Mike McCoy, the offensive coordinator, for presenting some different wrinkles each week that the defense has to prepare for.  So they do play a little bit slower and he is not running the option on every play … For right now, you can believe.”
Hoge:  “That’s called gimmick football.  What do you believe?  Do you believe you can win a Super Bowl?  Is it about winning games?  There is no conversation.  They’ve already won games.  Can you win a Super Bowl?  That is the whole thing.  Do I believe he’s a good guy?  Do I believe he can run the football?  I never said he couldn’t.  I do believe in that.  Can you throw it from the pocket on a consistent basis?  He still throws it in the dirt 50% of the time.  He’s still undecided to how he throws the football on his second year.  His elongated motion is still there.  You’re going to get exposed eventually by a very good team … I don’t see it.  I haven’t seen no improvement.  His gimmicks are working right now.  But when you have to play real football, he won’t be able to do it.”

Funny how it was "embarrassing" to think that the Broncos could actually "win" with Tebow at the helm, but now it has drifted into they can't win a "Super Bowl" with this offense.

Keep picking against our boy and the Broncos, Merill, because when you do they keep on winning.
