Josh Duhamel Sides with Tim Tebow, Calls Out "Jealous" Merril Hoge

by at . Comments

He may have fallen out of favor in New York, but Tim Tebow has a major fan in Hollywood.

With the quarterback receiving flak for the rumor last week that he refused to take the field for the Jets - a rumor Tebow shot down yesterday - Josh Duhamel has come out in support of the former Heisman winner.

ESPN analyst Merril Hoge has been especially harsh toward Tebow, recently saying he's as "phony as a three-dollar bill" and asking fans in Denver if they care any more that he no longer plays in that city.

In response to that final question, Duhamel unleased on Twitter.

"@merrilhoge hey merril. Josh Duhamel here," the actor wrote. "Wondering you're such a jealous bitch about Tebow? He's 10X the player you were."

Ohhh, slam!

For the record, over a seven-year career, Hoge ran for 3,139 yards and 21 touchdowns; while Tebow has thrown for 2,422 yards and 17 scores.

But Tim Tebow has never been about the numbers.

So, you tell us, football fans: Would you want Tebow starting for your favorite franchise?
