Seattle's T.J. Houshmandzadeh Guarantees Playoffs

Washington Redskins v Cincinnati Bengals
T.J. Houshmandzadeh is sounding more and more like Chad Ocho Cinco everyday. The guy that was cool and confident in interviews during his time in Cincinnati now is sounding cocky and arrogant. Here is what Housh had to say in a couple recent interviews:

"I just want to let everyone know that Matt Hasselbeck and I will be leading the Seahawks to the playoffs this season," Houshmandzadeh said. "And we'll be going to the Pro Bowl as a tandem."

"We're both going to have top five seasons: He'll have a top five quarterback season, and I'll have a top five receiving season. I'll put up stats I've never had before yardswise because they're allowing me to be a complete receiver."

They're allowing you to be a "complete receiver?" Yes T.J., that means you will no longer have single coverage and won't catch 90 plus balls this year. Your team was just as bad as the Bengals last year and your quarterback hasn't been healthy for several years. Way to guarantee the world to Seahawks fans Ocho Cinco... I mean Housh.

I have no problem with TJ or Chad showing confidence. Is TJ supposed to go out there and say my quarterback sucks and he we have no chance of winning?

I like the confidence. I liked when Chad sent the Pepto Bismol to the Browns DB's, that was confidence. I don't like Chad trying to beat up his coaches and calling out his quarterback at halftime of a playoff game that his team is winning. I don't like Chad going through his big mouth agent to demand a trade right after signing a huge contract. Big difference.

Yeah, I don't get the TJ hate.

I didn't include the whole interview and really started to dislike T.J. this past season. All he did was whine on the field and it seemed every time the camera was on him he was crying about some "bad" call.

Personally, I think he was a product of the Bengals system and his numbers will drop this upcoming season. He was all about the money and frankly at the age of 31 wasn't worth the $40 million over five-years that the Seahawks forked over and didn't consider taking a pay-cut for his "hometown team"

All he talks about in his interviews now is how he disliked Cincinnati, couldn't stand the fans, etc. If you don't believe me pick up the June 22nd issue of The Sporting News and read it.
