Hoge is a complete dipsh!t. And yes, I have said that to

1.) ESPN
2.) Hoge's personal ESPN email account.

Being a health care professional it used to annoy the crap out of me when he used to talk about concussions on ESPN and say once a player show's signs of concussion he is "asymptomatic".

I took it upon myself to email ESPN and Mr. Hoge and educated both that "asymptomatic" means more or less - showing no signs. And if a player was showing signs of concussion, he would be "symptomatic". Interestingly enough, Hoge has since corrected his grammar but you can still find him talking like that on old clips.

I think he is a good guy though and being in the business he is in.....eventually he will say bad things about your team and/or your teams players. Just the nature of business....analysts will not agree with what you agree with 100% of the time. No biggie here as far as I'm concerned.

Wonder if these guys bashing Jadeveon realize they are also criticizing the guys who coached him?

All things considered, Jadeveon handled things reasonably well for a 20 yr. old. I hope he can continue to just smile and go out and do his thing.

I just wish he would have done this before the season. That way all of those "Idiot College Coaches" wouldn't have planned to have 2 and 3 people assigned to block him on every play.

Default Re: Merril Hoge talks a TON of trash about Clowney's skill

There is some truth to what some of what Merrill said. Clowney does play to high and doesn't use his hands. He does give up on plays. He does take plays off. The problem is every defensive player takes plays off. On the plays he does "give up" he runs people down from behind on plays away from him a good portion of the time. But Merrill is way to far over the top with the heart break crap. He doesn't know his work ethic from game film that comes from practice. I like Khalil mack a lot but to say he is the best defensive player in the last 15 years, man please.

If Clowney played at Buffalo he would look 100 times better than Mack. He would probably get 20+ sacks every year in the MAC.

Let Clowney shut them up on the field. Watch how they all come back and kiss and suck up to him. "Oh no, Jadaveon. I didn't mean what I said. I never called you lazy. It was just a ratings ploy." The haters will quit sipping on that haterade but our boy Jadaveon will see right through it and do what he does best and beast it regardless of what the sycophants say.

No worries. Either Merril Hoge is right or he is wrong. The next few years will be the proof.

Default Re: Merril Hoge talks a TON of trash about Clowney's skill

The stuff he said was over-the-top and almost malicious. The were inaccuracies and a terrible tone to the discussion. They said Clowney benched 16 reps. It was 21, and 11 of the 28 DE's benched more, and about 5 of those were 22. They talked as though he was some kind of lazy out-of-shape wimp. Clowney played with a couple of injuries this year (and minor ones as a sophomore). As far as tight ends whipping him - or any single blocker for that matter, it only happened a few plays. He was schemed out of stats, but he affected all games he was in. As far as heart for the game and work put -in, Hoge is simply speculating. I think the tone and over-the-top nature of his comments give away his bias. Clowney has every reason to think his face was spit in. Sports commentators often live by making wild statements in order to get noticed.
