LeBron James Comes To Defense Of Broncos QB Tebow

Fire & Passion

Apparently, ESPN’s NFL analyst Merril Hoge is not a big fan of Denver Broncos’ signal caller Tim Tebow:

Sitting watching tape of Bronco offense from last year! Orton or Tebow? It’s embarrassing to think the broncos could win with tebow!!

Orton or tebow? QB play is not just about who works hard gives rare rare college speeches or who is a good guy!! Because orton works hard and is a good guy as well.

It’s about who can play!! I just watched Tebow throw 5 out routes to a wide open WR! He was 1 for 5! 2 went in Dirt 2 in the stands!

That throwing motion he changed? U can’t change who u r! Just watched 2 throws and he throws like he did in college!!

You must possess a skill set to play! Tebow struggles with accuracy!

Somewhere, Dolphins’ faithful could be found clamoring for Kyle Orton.

Now on to the former Florida Gator superstar’s response to Hoge:

Hey Merril…… ‘ppreciate that

However, that wasn’t enough for Merril to receive, as Miami Heat forward LeBron James feverishly came to Tebow’s side:

Tim Tebow will succeed in the NFL. He’s a hard worker, a student of the game, a natural born leader and most of all a WINNER! It takes time and he’ll be nice

Listened to Merril Hoge today on [SportsCenter] and he was just blasting Tebow. The man hasn’t even play a full season and its only his 2nd year in.

Guys get on that TV and act like they was all WORLD when they played. How bout encouraging him and wishing him the best instead of hating!!

Who knew LeBron was such a big supporter of the “Tebow Thing.”
