Houshmandzadeh calls out Bears G.M. Angelo

T.J. Houshmandzadeh got a lot of attention this offseason because of what he said, in addition to what he did: sign with the Seahawks.

He’s been quiet on the field with his new team, trailing Nate Burleson and John Carlson slightly in receptions and yards.  But Housh isn’t done talking yet.

In advance of this week’s game against the Bears, Housmandzadeh was asked if he had any serious talks with Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo.

“Man, the Bears ain’t holler at me,” he said.  “Jerry Angelo probably
didn’t even think I could play. So I’m going to show him Sunday.”

Houshmandzadeh will have to show him without being fully healthy.  The former Bengal sat out practice Wednesday with a back injury, but Seahawks coach Jim Mora says that his wideout will be ready.

Matt Hasselbeck’s status is far less certain.  A broken rib kept him out of practice Wednesday, and the Seahawks are treating his injury as “day-to-day.”

Also uncertain is whether Houshmandzadeh is enough of a difference-maker to be worth all the money Seattle is paying him.  Angelo clearly didn’t think so. 

On Sunday, Houshmandzadeh gets to prove him wrong.

    Houshmazilly…..lock it up. Championship!!

    Damn Housh! Even if the Bears would have reached out to him, he still wouldn’t of signed.. He was out for money, not to win. Why else would you go to the Seahawks?

    Without Ochocinco, Houshmandzadeh is nada!

  4. ochostinko says: Sep 23, 2009 6:05 PM

    He should stick to what he does best – looking at the officials for a flag after dropping easy catches.

  5. CaptainFantastik says: Sep 23, 2009 6:05 PM

    The Bears “ain’t holler at me”? Ebonics must be purged from existence and every trace of it blasted from the surface of the earth. No better way to make yourself appear an ignorant, uneducated moron than to use that “dialect’.

  6. twindaddy says: Sep 23, 2009 6:06 PM

    Houshmandzadeh is a douche. He’s turned in to more of a disgruntled narcissist than Ocho Loco. Is it any coincidence that now that TJ is gone, Ocho is back to his old self?

  7. litemater says: Sep 23, 2009 6:07 PM

    He can show him on Madden 10, oh wait he is not rated that High! lol

  8. thecrazytomato says: Sep 23, 2009 6:07 PM

    Wow this guy needs to shut his trap and prove that he can play without Ocho.

    “Man, the Bears ain’t holler at me”
    Brilliant. Way to come across as a total moron. We need Larry Fitzgerald to give lessons on how to be a proper human being to 99% of the WRs in the NFL.
    What a joke.

  10. bearsrule says: Sep 23, 2009 6:15 PM

    Maybe he did holler at you, but you ain’t hear him. Must be some Northwestern dialect or something.

  11. Levito says: Sep 23, 2009 6:17 PM

    TJ used to be a pretty decent #2 WR, but he started running his mouth a few years ago with the “We were a better team even though we lost” BS.
    Lately, he’s just become nothing more than a mouth piece. I find it hard to root for someone with such an attitude and a big mouth.

    since when was it required to speak proper english in the nfl? we gonna ban tattoos next? earrings and other jewelry? cars with 22″ rims?
    you white supremicists make me sick lol

  14. Tdk24 says: Sep 23, 2009 6:25 PM

    Hasselbeck and Mcnabb, i thought the league made rules to protect QB’s. I guess not, because both of them were on the ground and got speared with a helmet to their backs and didn’t even draw a flag. Maybe if they relaxed the rules on QB’s a bit, the DL woudn’t be looking to literally kill the QB any chance they get.

    What the hell does that even mean?

    Great Idea! L Fitz can teach them how to assault the mother of his children.

    Glad Seattle paid him and not the Bengals….great number 2 but getting OLD! Glad to have Coles, Ocho, and Henry on our side. Good luck Housh…p.s. take some English classes. Who-dey!

  17. Tomb says: Sep 23, 2009 6:39 PM

    Seattle, you paid way too much for this guy, I hope you kept the receipt.
    Maybe you can figure out a way to write him off on your taxes.

  18. mnmaverick says: Sep 23, 2009 6:40 PM

    I don’t think anyone doubted his talwent. It was his asking price that was the problem. He wanted big money.

  19. Joe in Toronto, Canada says: Sep 23, 2009 6:51 PM

    “Man, the Bears ain’t holler at me,” he said.

    What’s wrong with a little English?
    I mean, really.

  20. This is not news says: Sep 23, 2009 7:05 PM

    Receivers go to Seattle when they wanna get (over)paid.
    Nate Burleson
    Deion Branch
    TJ Housh
    Koren Robinson
    Joey Gallaway
    It’s a miracle they didn’t pick Crabtree, cause he’d have gotten paid too.

  21. jimmySee says: Sep 23, 2009 7:09 PM

    Really, just shut up and play the game.

    He ain’t be listening in school either.

  23. CYGNUS X-1 says: Sep 23, 2009 7:41 PM

    why would the bears want to overpay a second rate receiver who the bengels didn’t want?what has he done so far in seattle to justify that contract?the receivers they did hollor at will be just fine thanks for asking douche!

  24. bearsfan says: Sep 23, 2009 8:03 PM

    Hey Housh,
    Why would we pay you when we’ve got Johnny Knox! And Devin Hester, Earl Bennett, and all kinds of unknowns that are about to shock the world.

  25. BEAR-A-HOLIC says: Sep 23, 2009 8:08 PM

    Seems like Crowder has company in the “Douche Bag Club”.

  26. Bob Loblaw says: Sep 23, 2009 8:28 PM

    Well, the Vikings did “holler at him”, but Houshmandzadeh then went for more money and gave a lame excuse about not wanting Tavaris Jackson as his QB. So he wasn’t going to sign with the Bears unless they paid him even more that Seattle, especially considering Kyle Orton was the Bears QB at the time.
    Funny thing is he now has Senaca Wallace throwing to him, while the Vikings and Bears have Brett Favre and Jay Cutler. Good luck showing up Lovie Smith with a bad back and a CFL-caliber QB throwing your way.

  27. GoBears84 says: Sep 23, 2009 8:37 PM

    yeah right housh……tillman will give you some real back problems as hes stripping that ball faster than some paint thinner. dudes garbage, who is gonna get him the ball, wallace? hah get ready for the goon and brown wallace!!

  28. Piro says: Sep 23, 2009 8:38 PM

    That’s big talk for a career second-best WR who looks like the Aztec dude from the Black Eyed Peas.
    We’ll see how that back holds up on Sunday.
    Go Bears!

  29. Franchise says: Sep 23, 2009 8:52 PM

    The Bears didnt go after him because they didnt have anyone to throw him the ball.
    Now that they overpaid for a QB, Housh may have been a decent addition.
    He didnt want to sign with Minnesota due to the fact he wanted a quality QB throwing to him. I hope he enjoys Senneca Wallace tossing the ball the rest of the year.

  30. Philtration says: Sep 23, 2009 9:21 PM

    If the Bears wanted to overpay a second rate receiver they could have just resigned Bernard Berrian.

  31. NoFootballtalk says: Sep 23, 2009 9:36 PM

    All this post and its comments informed me about is that an overwhelming majority of the PFT readers are white guys who are strangely particular about the way people speak. Stop acting like you can’t understand him, guys. I know you can. But if you really can’t understand him then you’re probably too old to be using a computer. old and shouldn’t be using the internet. It’s too complicated for old guys

    Maybe you mean intelligence supremicists, since you seem lacking.

  33. Packers29 says: Sep 23, 2009 9:44 PM

    He is an above average possesion receiver, but totally replaceable.

  34. danno1212 says: Sep 23, 2009 10:18 PM

    It’s gonna be fun to watch him get beat up by the Bears. Over-rated, Over-paid, and soon to be salary cap casualty!

  35. Stone says: Sep 23, 2009 10:39 PM

    @NoFootballTalk
    Its the principle of the matter. This guy is getting paid millions of dollars to play for an NFL franchise. As such, he should represent the organization in the best possible manner. Speaking to the media as if he were negotiating with the local gangbangers for a re-up on his package is not the best possible manner in which to represent his organization. The organization paying him millions of dollars. Did I already mention that?

  37. Jabberwocky says: Sep 24, 2009 12:27 AM

    What’s with the liberal use of the word douche on this site? I’m in my late 30s and haven’t used that term since the eighties. It’s pretty funny to see people call Housh a moron when using the word.
    The Bears would have no use for him cause Hester, Knox, and Bennett are working out just fine so far.

    ..white and black supremicists make us all sick

  39. shaunypoo says: Sep 24, 2009 6:45 AM

    While he had some really good years while he was here in Cincinnati, and we enjoyed his work ethic and production on the field, most of us saw this coming. With the trash he talked about the Bengals after he left, and the complaining he was constantly doing on the field, why is what he is saying now a suprise. He doesn’t seem to realize that he is a number two receiver, and neither did Seattle. Glad he could do what he wanted to do and get paid. Even more glad he did it somewhere else. And he is injured again. Caveat emptor, Seattle.

    Only a moron would think that someone who speaks like this would be hired for ANY job that doesn’t involve garbage cans or dirty dishes?
    It wouldn’t matter if the interviewer was white or black…he’s not getting the job.

    only two receivers on that list support your statement. you obviously don’t know much about football.

    I love the irony of telling someone to take some English classes, then follows it with “Who-dey!”

  42. purpleguy says: Sep 24, 2009 10:10 AM

    Sure glad this dope didn’t sign with the Vikes, although had he signed with the Bears, he would have been the only receiver on that team that knows how to run a disciplined pass route.

  43. Fanamine says: Sep 24, 2009 11:21 AM

    It seems the bigotry is quite evenly distributed in these posts. I agree that his English is quite lacking. I say this as he is a college graduate. His school papers could not have been written with such poor skills.
    This may seem petty, but due to many posts containing the word, ‘supremicist’, it should be noted that the word is spelled, ‘supremacist.’ It does tend to take a little out of your supreme rantings when you cannot spell the word which personifies who you are.

  44. John says: Sep 24, 2009 12:47 PM

    And this from a man who has a college degree? well, maybe attended a college…WTF?…..”ain’t holler at me…”

  45. coachslife says: Sep 24, 2009 1:28 PM

    For those that do not seem to know….there is a dialect for the streets and there is one for formal matters…..The Owner of the conversation gets to choose, not us.
    Housh, gets to choose… as we do each and every day!
    By the way…why shouldn’t he take the highest contract? Football is a very dangerous game and I hope he gets as much as those thieving CEO’s and crooked politicians! Just because you are an athlete, does not mean you are suppose to please the fickled public. Now, that being said, Go get him, BEARS!

  46. texasPHINSfan says: Sep 24, 2009 3:47 PM

    jesus, shut up Housh. When you start performing like an elite #1, you can act like it. Right now you’re following a tight end on the team.
