Matt Barkley responds to Merril Hoge criticism in fantastic way (Video)
Matt Barkley has been a popular topic of discussion for NFL analysts leading up to the draft. The former USC star was once considered a lock to be selected in the first round, but an injury and some inconsistent play have led to some uncertainty heading into April.
As you can see from the video above, ESPN’s Merril Hoge is one analyst who feels that NFL teams should be concerned over Barkley’s arm strength and decision making. In order to make his point, Hoge used a bunch of arrows on one of ESPN’s magic video boards. When someone brought the segment to Barkley’s attention, he responded on Twitter by writing “sometimes too many arrows is too much” and posting this hilarious GIF on Twitter:
Is that perfectly played or what? If you ask Lane Kiffin, it wasn’t Barkley’s fault that USC had one of its most disappointing seasons in school history last year. Whatever the case, there is no shortage of Barkley doubters. The only thing he can do at this point is use the criticism as motivation, post hilarious GIFs about it and hope to prove everyone wrong.
