    Really, these guys don't make money unless they create a buzz. That is exactly what he is doing. This is helping his career to be the lone voice apposing VY. It gets him on shows to "dissagree".

    He gets noticed now which helps his career but if he continues to be an idiot about it, no one will bother to listen to anything else he has to say.

    I suppose it's just the season, but when I saw Hoge on TV today, I thought he'd look like one of Santa's elves if you put one of those green felt hats on him. :))

    One thing is for sure. VY cares a lot less than anyone posting on this board.

    Actually...

    Zero coverage means there IS an unblocked blitzer that CAN account for Young. However, Young did look to pass first, but quickly didn't find anyone open. Fortunately, CB's block forced the free blitzer to go wider than he wanted and VY used his instincts and awesome talent to do the rest!

    Yes...

    That is PRECISELY why guys like Salsbury are getting on his case behind the scenes. It makes the show look dumb when one of it's 2 analysts says VY still stinks and can't get it done when he's just set an NFL for having 2 14 point comebacks, and has really flashed big potential in his last several games. Meanwhile, the guy both Jaws and Hoge picked to be the only good QB worthy of a first rnd pick (and in the perfect system with an offensive guru) is the one struggling now.

    At least Mark Schlereth has been on both the radio and on NFL live saying he was flat out wrong about VY and has been praising him to no end!!!

    Well...

    As others have pointed out, he said he wouldn't bury the guy even though he's done just that many times on the air.

    Furthermore, if you simply read between the lines, his bias against VY comes out. For example, when he talks about if VY was dissecting people from the pocket, he'd be FORCED to say he was wrong. Things like that and justifying his opinion saying VY hadn't mastered the league?

    Hoge...he may not have mastered the league, but I'd take VY over Big Ben the last 4 games. Plus, Big Ben has thrown 3 or more INT's in 4 out of 12 starts. VY has done that ONCE!

    No, he hasn't mastered the league yet, but he's shown some remarkable improvement WHILE still being able to manage the game and give us a great chance to win it late if we keep it close!

    It is not just behind the scenes. You hear every good Vince Young highlights comes with a This is for your Merrill comment.
    And even then he still comes up with his snide, ridiculous remarks (if he is loses, is he a loser?).

    I think this is beyond pig head arrogance, Hoge seems to have a personal vendetta against Young and is willing to risk his career (pressure is getting on him from every one else. Jaws and Sailsbury scoff at him) just in the hope he is right.
