Houshmandzadeh still unhappy with Seattle

Every few weeks, T.J. Houshmandzadeh speaks his mind and calls ‘em as he sees ‘em. And, for whatever reason, we feel compelled to pass along his words. (The guy can be refreshingly honest.) This week, Housh, on Sirius XM’s Mad Dog radio (via Pro Football Talk), rehashed his release from the Seahawks and shared his feelings about Pete Carroll.

In case you don’t recall, the Seahawks released Houshmandzadeh shortly before the start of the season even though they were still on the hook for some $6 million.

“To be honest with you, of course, because I felt like the way it went down -– I don’t really want to get into it –- but the way it went down was shady to me,” Houshmandzadeh said. “But it is what it is. Hopefully they’ll keep winning and we will, too.”

Housh suggested that Carroll kept him around pointlessly long after deciding that Mike Williams would be the team’s No. 1.

“I just felt the way things were going when I was there, I knew what was happening, and I felt like if you’re gonna do it, you know you were gonna do it months ago, just do it then,” Houshmandzadeh said. “Don’t try to string it out and do it that way where it makes it very tough for me to get with a team and contribute. Luckily I was able to come here [to Baltimore] but it is very hard to come to a team the week prior to the regular season starting and contribute in a way that I’m used to doing.”

The last part is interesting because it sounds like the veteran wideout might be hinting that he wishes he had a bigger role in Baltimore. Obviously Houshmandzadeh is not going to stir that pot at this stage of the season, but don’t be surprised if he speaks up come spring.

Houshmandzadeh still unhappy with Seattle

If TJ didn't like Seattle holding on to him trying to find a trading partner so they didn't have to eat most of his salary once they cut him then why didn't he just retire.  To complain about it now makes makes him out to be even littler than he was while in Seattle.  The Seahawks signed him to a huge contract to be a big contibutor and he gave them very little.  He was going to give even less this season so he got dumped.

Houshmanzadeh cursed

Always has been one of the biggest punks in sports. Hasn't changed.

It's OK. He's cursed, anyway.

He stomped/desecrated the Terrible Towel, and this causes a curse.

He stomped on it, then weeks later Carson Palmer got his knee blown out by Kimo Von Olhoffen. The Bengals then STUNK, till they traded him to Seattle. Then, and only then, Cincinati got good again. Check it -- facts.

Seattle, with him now on this team, sucked badly.
 Check it -- facts.

Now, he will curse the Ravens chances. They will never win the championship till they cut him.

By the way, this curse also destroyed the top-seed Titans a few years ago, and they never got better until they PERSONALLY apologized (for real, to the charity the Towel supports) for stomping on it. It was stomped on by Lendale White. The WEEK after they apologized publicly last year -- THE TITANS BEGAN TO WIN! Check it all -- all facts.

The Curse of the Terrible Towels.

TJ's cursed. Sorry.

Houshmandzadeh still unhappy with Seattle

I agree with you Steve, he has been a solid reciever but never a great one. His career is on the downswing and the Bears need a reciever like V-Jax to join the team someone that can bail out Cutler on bad throws. Every team needs someone like that to take the pressure off a QB every once in a while. A guy who you just throw the fade at the goal line and he'll go up and get it. That is one reason the Bears are so bad in the red zone. You cover Olsen that means that the big bodies are covered. With someone like V-Jax or even Malcom Floyd who you can just throw it up and he can make a play for you. It would be nice to see the Bears have someone like that. They have plenty of speed, Hester and Knox provide plenty of that. Time to get a big body for Cutler to throw too. Then fix the O-Line through the draft and you have a very solid offense to go along with your Defense. I would also love to see them draft Casey Matthews. Urlacher is getting older and Casey could learn behind him a few years and take over when he retires or even play along side him and Briggs. Tinoisamoa sucks. They need another outside LB and he would fit great.
