T.J. Houshmandzadeh says Seahawks ready to flex their way into spotlight
Posted by Danny O'Neil
Receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh appeared with Mitch Levy on KJR-AM on Tuesday morning. Here's a link to the on-demand audio for the interview.
Levy said afterward he felt like a dentist early on in the interview, but later on, Houshmandzadeh got rolling and 15 minutes into the interview he broke into an assessment of the season.
"We're going to be good," Houshmandzadeh said.
Really, Levy asked.
"Real good," Houshmandzadeh said. "Everybody stays healthy, ah man. We're going to be something special. The talent we have on this team and then coach Mora brings everything together just right. Cool dude. Not because I just got there, but everything I've seen from Jim Mora has showed me that we're going to be really good just the way he relates to the players. The other coaches he has on the staff, Greg Knapp, ah man, I couldn't believe it. Just being around him the short period of time I've been around him, I'm surprised his name hasn't been brought up for a head coach.
"Gus Bradley wants around the building with a smile on his face. High energy. We're going to be good. I can't wait to smack some people in the face. They didn't put us on TV so when we start running through everybody like a wet paper bag, don't flex us in late in the season when we're the best.
"Don't flex us in, we'll have our coming-out party in the playoffs."
