    What the hell is wrong with this guy? That's the problem with what he said about Vince--not that he just doesn't believe VY will put it all together and be star [a perfectly fine, objective, opinion for an NFL analyst] but that he had "studied the tape" and after 4 preseason games was confident that Vince officially had no shot whatsoever and the organization was beginning to implode b/c of a bad pick in the draft that they couldn't get away from b/c they paid him too much money, Floyd should be fired, and so on.

    It's the respect anyone should have when they're talking about the draft--an acknowledgment of the GUESS part of the "informed guess." It's not a crapshoot per se, but rather a crapshoot with a couple clues that you don't usually figure out till years later. You can often form some objective opinion about a player, but then you always have to acknowledge that things could go the other way (in this case, that Vince could actually play in this league). That's what was so crappy, that he basically screamed it from the rafters--and if Vince would have fell on his face Hoge would have stomped on the back of his head and called everyone who thought otherwise idiots.

    And the worst part was it was kinda lose-lose for us (Titans viewers of ESPN programming) b/c you CAN'T back off of predictions that brazen--you'd look like a complete moron. So now whenever Hoge pops up and our team comes up as a topic--it's all about HIM. It's about him defending his original prognostication. When we go on a win streak w/ a rookie qb, I'm looking for excitement, some enthusiasm in the national media--not the Meril Hoge show.

    So when I talk about Mario Williams, whom I think will ultimately be consumed be the pressure b/c he will never be able to meet whatever ridiculous expectations the Texans put on him by not trading down to take him, I do so with the full acknowledgment that he could also turn out to be a very good player.

    HE (merrill) should have never been in the league. Or on T.V as a so called analyst. No Mario will never be julius pepper but he'll be an o.k to solid player more than merrill ever was at football or analyst.

    I think his brain suffered more than concussions in the league.

    Does Hoge see the world in Black and White only. There's no medium with this idiot.

    By his logic, either a player becomes MVP from his very first season and leads the NFL in everything, or that player becomes a failure and should be out of the league ASAP.
