As Tim Tebow seems to fall even further on the New York Jets depth chart -- Browning Nagle just passed him, I believe -- he has drawn more wrath from ESPN analysts. The latest, of course, was Merril Hoge, who was distracted long enough from crafting enormous knots for his neckties to say Tebow was "as phony as a three-dollar bill," then trolled the unnamed and non-existent Denver Broncos fans still longing for His presence over Peyton Manning. Now Tebow is getting support from an unlikely, scruffy source.
Transformers actor Josh Duhamel played Optimus Prime to Hoge's Megatron this week, ripping the ESPN analyst after one of his anti-Tebow tweets.
Hoge wrote: "Any bronco fan still think they would be better with Tebow? I've not heard much noise lately? Curious??"
The only thing curious about that tweet was its use of question marks.
Duhamel responded: "hey merril. Josh Duhamel here. Wondering why you're such a jealous [expletive] about Tebow? He's 10x the player you were."
Oh man, I wish Duhamel starred in You Got Served so I could make the easy You Got Served reference. (It doesn't work as well with credits like Ramona and Beezus.) But, hoo boy; Mr. Fergie just burned you, Merril Hoge.
He deserves it too, and not just because we all know three-dollar bills exist.
