Team reactions stun Houshmandzadeh

From ESPN:

RENTON, Wash. -- No one in Seattle will ever confuse T.J. Houshmandzadeh with Steve Largent.

The outspoken Houshmandzadeh is "shocked" with the fuss being made in his first Seahawks season over his angry gestures and comments about not getting the ball enough, in a city where people are used to their star receivers being quiet yet ultra-productive -- like Largent. Seattle's Hall of Famer was so understated he wouldn't even spike the ball following any of his 101 career touchdowns.
....

Last weekend in Dallas, he angrily gestured toward Matt Hasselbeck to throw the ball with more loft immediately after he tried to zing a ball to the tightly guarded receiver near the Cowboys' goal line in the first quarter.

The discussion between the two players continued at the bench. Both made gestures but did not appear to be arguing so much as explaining themselves.

Then in the third quarter, Houshmandzadeh was seen angrily shouting on the sidelines following the end of another possession in Seattle's eventual blowout loss.
....

Asked to assess his season, Houshmandzadeh quickly replied, "Oh, terrible."

"People lie. Numbers don't. As of right now, I'm not doing anything. I don't know why it is like that. ... I like myself man, I really do. I feel like I'm always open. And there's times that I'm not open, and I'm supposed to feel like I'm open," he said.

Yes, Houshmandzadeh thinks he should get the ball on every pass play.

"You watch the tape, you'll see the same thing I'm seeing," he said. "That's why I'm optimistic.

I hope they collapse

Him and Jim Mora Jr. will ruin that team in 2-3 years even more.
I thought Houshmandzadeh was a good guy and not a prima donna? I guess thre's no such thing as a WR without a massive ego.
I love it....

I never quite understood the fascination a lot of people had with Mora Jr. People saw him as this great coach and it makes me scratch my head.

Who would have guessed that the loud mouth cancer that left Cincy was TJ and not Chad Johnson.

Well, Houshmandzadeh is a WR and they can be jerks ... so I can't say this surprises me.
