Merril Hoge took to Twitter earlier this week to share his thoughts on Tim Tebow, NFL quarterback. Hoge, to put it mildly, was unimpressed with what he saw. So, naturally, we talk about it on the podcast.

We think most rational folks would agree that Kyle Orton gives the Broncos the best chance to win now, although Tebow could one day be an NFL starting QB. It's just that the day hasn't arrived yet. So while Hoge's sentiments aren't particularly controversial, the way he delivered them clearly rubbed some people the wrong way, including Tebow. So is that a problem? Or is public criticism part of the implicit deal professional athletes make when they sign lucrative contracts and play on national television every week?

In other news, we discuss the Dolphins' quarterback situation, the Jets' wide receivers situation, and pose the hypothetical question: of the three wideouts, who would you want: Randy Moss, Plaxico Burress or Braylon Edwards?

Talking starts below. (Just hit the play button and don't forget to Subscribe via iTunes.)

Podcast: Tim Tebow vs. Merril Hoge - Who ya got?

tebow needs to realize that his skillset will never fly in the nfl. accept the move to tight end or h-back and help your team on offense. dont be seneca wallace 2.0. as a seattle fan i remember a seahawk assistant coach being quoted as saying he could be a pro bowl receiver but he had the "im a quaterback" stuck in his head. regardless of where and when your are drafted you are paid to help your team at whatever position the coach puts you at. get on the field tim and catch some tds from orton. fans and critics will not be disappointed that denver took a pro bowl tight end in the first round.
