    Houshmandzadeh Signs with ravens cuz of Hue Jackson

    It may have been inadvertant, but the glowing endorsement of quarterback Joe Flacco by Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson played into the decision of wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh to sign with the Ravens.

    “I don’t know if you all know, but me and Hue Jackson have a real good relationship, and Hue used to brag about the guy all the time. Brag about how good of a quarterback he was and his demeanor and his personality, and that’s why I was a little late,” Houshmandzadeh told reporters in Baltimore according to the Baltimore Sun after meeting with Flacco. “We were in there talking a little bit. It always helps when you’ve got a guy that can put the ball where it needs to be.”

    Jackson was Flacco’s quarterbacks coach with the Ravens.

    The Sun reported Houshmandzadeh chose the Ravens over the Raiders.

    Wish Hue mentioned Jason Campbell haha!? Or tried to hype up the opportunity to become a number 1 here...

    Hue?? I`m guessing if Hue wanted him badly, he would have been bugging Al big time to sign him........If Hue said, "Nope, we don`t need him" for other reasons......then fine....
    .
    .
    .
    .
    Or maybe Hue went to Cable and Al and said, "let`s get this kid now"......and Al said NO...............?????????? Who knows??????

    We all know who the boss is right?????????????
    Ted Nugent being interviewed by a British journalist.
    The journalist asked, "What do you think the last thought is in the head of a deer before you shoot it? Is it, `Are you my friend?` or is it `Are you the one who killed my brother?'"

    Nugent replied, "They aren't capable of that kind of thinking. All they care about is, 'What am I going to eat next, who am I going to screw next, and can I run fast enough to get away. They are very much like the French in that way."

    Makes sense. I married my wife because she used to date Brad Pitt.

    Yeah if Al wanted him here we'd have a receiver with a shiny new $50 million contract. It's probably worth noting he won't contribute anything to his new team for something like a month or two by which time we'd have Schilens back on the field (hopefully), so whatever. It would have been nice as an insurance policy in case Schilens never gets it together but Campbell will have to make do with what he has.

    I think the key phrase is "USED to brag". I would hope that Hue is talking about Campbell like that now.
