    One of the best part of Hoge's comments is that his main reason that VY shouldn't be rookie of the year is not true. He says that a player should "play in at least 15 games" to be considered. Well, Vince Young started 13 games this season and came off the bench in the first two, therefor, he played in 15 games.

    Listen Merril Hoge is an idiot. He was a fullback and not all that good either so I will never understand were ESPN can give him any kind of a forum to speak on Vince Young or the Quaterback as a whole. He should be fired from his job he clearly does not study the films on anyone especially the Titans. He listed as a reason why VY won the rookie of year was because voters saw the two highlights of him at Houston and at Buffalo. Well it seems thats all he watched as well cause last time I checked he had a big role in the 24 points scored against the Giants in less than 10 mins, had a huge game against Peyton Manning with 2 touchdowns and set up the winning field goal, when at one point the Titans were down 14-0. Anyway Merril Hoge is just jealous that in his 7 lousy years in the NFL Vince has done more in one not even full season being rookie of the year and bringing this team an eye lash away from a playoff berth. So please lets not give anymore attention to this moron he has no knowledge of anything when it comes to this Titan Vince Young.

    Country..

    Actually hoge was a pretty good player and twice led the steelers in rushing. For 4 seasons he averaged 600+ yards rushing and 300+ yards receiving which is good for a fullback.

    It has nothing to do with jealousy or hoge would be bashing every top player. He failed to appreciate the uncommon ability of an atypical QB. Of course Qbs who can run are nothing new. He dug himself in and focused not on proper unbiased analysis but on defending his original position. His stubborness is his biggest flaw and now he deserves everything he gets..

    He didn't have to be a vince basher. Certainly he has a right to think that certain players will not succeed in the nfl but he should be big enough to give vince credit when he plays well. His biggest act of stupidity was claiming the titans were "hiding" him when nothing could be further from the truth.

    Vince is a rookie, and came out early. He was not in a pro style offense. The hiding quote is pretty accurate, because they limited what was asked of him in the pocket. I don't fault Hoge for saying that, but I do fault him for not mentioning Vince's other attributes that some pocket passers will never have.
