    Young may be a bust in the pros (so far), but its pretty obvious when you watch Hoge that he personally loathes VY.

    He sounds like one of those little kids that idolizes a player & then gets refused an autograph, so from then on he spews hate about him every time he is mentioned.

    I'm not saying you're wrong, but people seldom loathe others for no reason at all, so what do you imagine Hoge's reasoning for singling out Vince would be?

    I really have no clue.

    It could be anything really. I've heard from some people that he somehow has close ties at Oklahoma, though I don't know why he would. But if true, he could just hate Young because he went to Texas.

    Who really knows how the mind of a guy who had a thousand concussions works.

    Maybe Hoge got tired of all the hate mail he received when he refused to worship at the VY alter. This commentary might be a bitter reflection back to the VY-homers. There has always been a certain venom that the VY crowd injects into conversations about the QB. Does the drink you served taste bitter now that you are forced to drink it yourself?

    Call Hoge what you want, but the truth is, he was spot on when it comes to Young.

    Hoge doesn't like Young because he thinks QB's are overrated in general and he dislikes the amount of hype that Young received when people thought he would revolutionize the game, when he watched film and saw that Young was never going to be a decent QB, let alone one worth a top 5 pick. he said he and Leinart weren't worthy of first round picks.

    WTF, Hoge said all this crap three years ago and everyone said he was stupid, a moran (how they spell it in St Louis) and that he does not know what he is talking about. He honestly said he would draft VY as a WR or RB right before the draft. So why is this a shock he would say this. Hoge is a jerk and a pompass ass but he is right and was right about the mensa waterboy VY.

    honestly, all the vy apologist need to have a big F'n apology to us who have never believed the hype.

    Again, I never said he was wrong. I just said I think the guy is a douche and an asshat. Just personal. :)

    Ding! Ding! Hoge never drank the Kool Aid either. And VY called him out on his opinion. Hoge is obviously one of those "Told You So" kinda people too.


    I took alot of grief for saying mario would be the right pick at least a month before the draft. It wasn't cool then.

    I recall one scalper here who even had something like "Boo Hoo we are stupid for not taking VY" in his signature forever. Wonder why he changed it???

    I totally agree that Hoge was right about Young.

    I just think he's a douche anyway, regardless of how he feels about any one player.

    To his credit, Hoge had the story right about the city, former mayor, and Adams. Now the rest of it about VY, I dunno ?

    I dont much care what Hodge has to say and at this point dont care much about where VY is in his career. If the guy wanted to get better as a QB he would have been working on that rather than working on slamming bottles of tequilla at parties with camera's turned on him that ended up on TMZ ?

    vy needs to learn how to throw the ball instead of selling sausage. the madden curse lives. he said he didn't believe in curses but you can't deny history. however, it's not like we have a top 10 qb right now.

    Schaub never tried to take himself out of the game, even though the Sage supporters would have liked to see that.
