Tarvaris Jackson is now saying things like he wondered what it would be like to play for another team, thinks he’s only on this team still because of Chilly’s loyalty, thought “Maybe it’s time to go” this preseason and even takes on the loyal purple fans by saying he “doesn’t care” if people like him or not.
You don’t care Tarvaris? Well frankly I do and have got news for you: THIS IS THE NFL. Zygi Wilf is paying the bills including over a million this year on you. There’s also more to this team than your friggin feelings. Being a QB takes thicker skin and it’s not like you were a top ten pick who was promised the franchise till death due us part. In fact, you were given a golden opportunity to run with the starting position beginning in 2008 but lost your job to an aging journeyman named Gus.
This also has me wondering if any QB will be happy in Minnesota during the Childress Era. But hey, all is okay right now because we’ve got Brett Favre running the show with something left in the tank. If any starting QB goes down that team faces a major uphill battle and ours has proven to be pretty durable over the years. Life is too short to not to enjoy riding the #4 train. The Battle in the Bayou Part Deux is only deux days away. Skol!
