Hoge becomes a Tebow convert

Merril Hoge apparently has officially joined the Pro-Tim Tebow Camp after several months of being critical of the Denver Broncos' unorthodox style of play

That style of play has resurrected the Broncos from 1-4 without Tebow to 7-1 with him, and 8-5 overall and in first place in the AFC West.

Hoge, who has long been a critic of quarterbacks who don't pass the sniff test as a passer, had been a critic of Tebow's style, but admitted on ESPN's Mike and Mike Radio Show that he has come around to believing in the Broncos' inspirational quarterback.

"The lessons that (the Broncos) are showing (are) what sports are about. ... I've been obviously very hard on Tim Tebow, very critical of him as a quarterback and his skill set," Hoge said. "... I've been wrong on a lot of levels with (Tebow). I've lost the ability, or the opportunity, I should say ... to shed light on what an amazing story (about) how he has worked, persevered, changed -- his diligence -- all those things that you try to teach young people ... (what) sports are really about."
