    Hoge is very loyal to the team that drafted him and for whom he played almost his entire NFL career with - an admirable trait for former players. So he's essentially just another fan of that team. And since that team he roots for is the Pittsburgh Steelers, he's also going to root against the Patriots - and probably the Ravens, Browns and Bengals as well.

    To answer your question: just like almost any other Steeler fan, no, I doubt Hoge has ever picked the Pats to win.

    Well, I guess since we have Tedy, Rodney, and for the most part Keyshawn (although surprisingly he did pick the Jets), the Steelers can have Hoge.

    Yeah but I doubt Tedy and Rodney will show consistent bias against the Steelers. If anything it's flattering that fans of a team with 6 super bowl rings are the ones obsessed with us.

    I remember he put the Steelers ahead of the Pats in his Power Rankings like every week in 2007.

    Hey,in 2004 he picked every week against the Eagles right up to the Super Bowl. He would say how he felt they weren't a good team and they would win again and again. He picked against the Pats a lot in 2007 too. So who really cares?

    I can't believe the guy gets paid for this stuff:

    If Tom Brady steps on the field, the Patriots have a 75% chance of winning. In fact, last I checked, Brady's career winning % was around 80%.

    I don't know if Hodge has ever said anything complimentary about the Pats. i can't remember any but i haven't watched BSPN since '07. I do know that he dresses like a rube, every time i saw him i couldn't believe bspn allowed him to go on TV dressed the way he was.

    Maybe he thinks the Jets are better.

    I don't care whether or not he picks the Pats, but he's easily one of the most annoying guys on ESPN. I can not stand listening to him talk about "factor backs".

    What i think the OP is saying and i agree is EVERY team is better than the Pats according to Hodge.

    I do not listen to Hodge. What so called experts think makes know difference wants the game starts.

    I understand i no longer pay attention to any of these prognosticators. They never seem to be right. But the point is as far as i go is that Hodge dislikes the Pats and has never given them any credit. So if he has no objectivity whats the point of having him as an analyst or what ever he is.

    I agree w/you but Hoge played for the Bears in his last year in the league.

    I know; that's why I said "almost his entire NFL career."
