T.J. Houshmanzadeh speaks out again

Published on August 9, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports was out at Seahawks headquarters last week and checks in today with his piece on T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who — as always — made a few interesting comments.

Seahawks wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh continues wondering why he didn’t get the ball more last year.

Predictably, Housh told Silver he didn’t understand why he didn’t get more balls thrown his way last season when he caught 79 passes. But this time he took things even further, saying he was the lead dog in a better receiving crew in Cincinnati, so it made no sense why he didn’t get more action with the Seahawks.

“I came from a team with Chad (Ochocinco) and Chris Henry, where I was the go-to guy,” he told Silver. “People on the outside might think it was Chad, but those who were there know better – it was me. Not to discredit anybody, but we didn’t have a Chad on [last year’s] team, and I wasn’t the go-to guy. That confused me.”

Houshmandzadeh also said Matt Hasselbeck told him at one point that offensive coordinator Greg Knapp didn’t believe in getting the ball to specific receivers, preferring more of a spread-it-around system after his prior dealings with Terrell Owens.

While the Seahawks are taking today off from camp, there’s plenty of reading material today. Here are a few other national links:

Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated has an extensive Seahawks preview as well after also spending time at the VMAC. His report includes comments from Housh about never getting the ball when games still mattered, balanced by a little statistical nugget — 41 of his catches last year came in the first half of games, 38 in the second half.
