Yesterday, Judd Zugland posted on his Access Vikings blog an absolutely shoddy piece of journalism from our own former Kevin Siefert over at ESPN. The story basically reports that Jackson had a conversation with Housh and that's what sent Housh packing.
"he told them that it was all good until they brought Tarvaris Jackson into talk to him (and basically signal to him that he is their starter"
Later in the day, on the basis that the story is vaguely "interesting" he posted it a second time, saying that maybe it got lost in the "Kennedy" shuffle. First of all, what Kennedy shuffle. This wasn't exactly a Jay Cutler signing.
What do we gain by any of this? Did it need to be posted twice, as if to add emphasis? Do people imagine that Housh didn't know that Jackson was the only viable starter on our team at the point he came for his visit?
If Housh was surprised to be talking to Jackson, he's too stupid to get paid the money he wanted anyway. More importantly, posting this article twice is insulting to fans and Jackson.
