Because I remembered some things and didn’t have anything else to write about.
Thought #1: Housh’s green jersey
There is really nothing worse than owning a bright green T.J. Houshmandzadeh Seahawks jersey. Studies show that owning a bright green Housh jersey is worse than getting herpes. Herpes only flares up on occasion, but a bright green Housh jersey is forever.
God forbid you’re in possession of one of these gems. Owning a green Housh jersey is akin to owning a million dollar gift certificate that can only be used to purchase floppy disks.
Fact is, you really cannot wear your green Housh jersey ever. EVER. There are a handful of reasons why:
1. Housh is no longer a member of the Hawks.
2. The bright green jerseys were phased out after one game.

A few new terms we’re introducing to your everyday vocabulary. For all the Seattle sports fans to utilize. Enjoy.
Hughmillenated (adj.): The act of getting your ass handed to you, verbally or physically, by former NFL quarterback Hugh Millen.
Ex. T.J. Houshmandzadeh was Hughmillenated.
Hughmillenation (n.): A state of shame, remorse, and embarrassment immediately following the act of being Hughmillenated; the aftermath of a Hugh Millen beatdown.

In case you haven’t noticed, the Hugh Millen vs. The Seahawks Receivers story has gained national attention in the past 24 hours. After we initially detailed the events shortly after they occurred, the story was picked up by Danny O’Neil of The Seattle Times, before making it to the hallowed pages of ProFootballTalk.com. The consensus from all parties was clear: the Hawks receivers were more or less out of line, and Hugh Millen is a genius.
We’ve discussed Hugh Millen at length before, so you know where we stand. The man is the Moses of football analysts, and questioning his word is akin to telling untruths with your hand on the Bible. Why the trio of wideouts felt the need to issue a veritable gang raping of Football Moses is beyond me, but suffice it to say everyone hates them and, in turn, loves Hugh.
Hugh Millen is only one man, but damn if he hasn’t become the mouthpiece for Seattle’s football fans in the past few years. How many of us have wanted to confront T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Nate Burleson, and Deion Branch the way Hugh did yesterday? Housh is a highly-paid big mouth that has been nothing short of a bust this season; Burleson fits under the same umbrella as Housh, though over a longer term; and Branch has epitomized unfulfilled potential after arriving from New England in 2006. All three of these guys are failures when it comes to on-field performance.

Listen to the Hugh-Housh fight by clicking here.
If you weren’t listening to 950 KJR AM around lunch hour this afternoon, you missed out on a rare opportunity to witness a member of the Seahawks exude passion this week.
It all began when regulars Nate Burleson and Deion Branch brought fellow wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh into the studio with them for their weekly show. Following their usual format, Branch and Burleson sat down for a cross-talk segment with midday host Dave ‘Softy’ Mahler before their show officially began.
A few minutes into their chat, frequent KJR contributor Hugh Millen joined the program via telephone and essentially littered the room with kerosene before lighting a match. (It should also be noted that Hugh Millen is close friends with Seahawks head coach Jim Mora, though that was not alluded to during the conversation.)

T.J. Houshmandzadeh has signed with the Seahawks and we should all be legitimately excited. Here we have one of the top receivers in the NFL, in the midst of his prime, coming to Seattle. You could argue that the Seahawks haven’t had an elite wideout since the Joey Galloway days (though Darrell Jackson would likely dispute that), so the presence of Housh should be glorified for all it truly is.
In order to get things started, we’re tallying off four of the best things we can think of regarding the newest member of the Hawks, outside of pure statistics. It’s a fantastic compilation, truly exhilarating, so enjoy!
1. His last name is “Houshmandzadeh.” Continue reading Four downs: A short list of the coolest things about T.J. Houshmandzadeh
ESPN is reporting that wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh is coming to Seattle. The free agent has been weighing offers from the Seahawks, Vikings, and his former club, the Cincinnati Bengals, over the weekend.
If these reports are true, it will signify a major upgrade at the wideout position for the Seahawks, who, at one point during the 2008 season, were without their four top receivers.
