    That's fine, but that doesn't mean Housh is going to go somewhere and constantly beat double teams week in and out, he's slow, he's a guy who runs great intermediate routes and can work the middle, nothing more.


    It would be a disaster if he stayed in Cincy and Chad left IMHO, I really like Housh but he's at the point where he needs another good WR opposite of him to have nearly the same effect he's had.

          Would be a good signing for Seattle. Hopefully they don't overpay for him.

            We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

              Eh, these people who think Housh has somehow passed Chad in skill don't seem to watch Bengals games. Housh plays against #2 corners. Chad plays against #1 corners + double teams.

              Losing Chad in 2010 will hurt. Losing Housh now will hurt less.

                Exactly. Houshmanzadeh is a good receiver, but he has already reached the peak of his potential. He is a #2 slot type receiver that is adept at running routes, making those tough catches in traffic, using his toughness and willingness as a runner after the catch, and he can be a good player in the redzone working the slot. He is reliable as they come. He is a #2 though, always has been, even in his prime.

                To say Chad Johnson would be a smaller loss than T.J. Houshmanzadeh is a bit off base. It's a matter of position. Andre Caldwell is our most promising young receiver and plays the slot just like T.J., he was Housh's backup a year ago along with Antonio Chatman. Johnson's backups were Chris Henry and Jerome Simpson, who are all more natural split out wide.

                As for Caldwell being a backup type, he may be, but he didn't appear to be going in that direction at the end of the year. Caldwell may be a Florida Wider Receiver, but the guy is very promising. He is quicker and faster than T.J. ever was, but he also has the hands, toughness, willingness, and developed quickly as a route runner in the slot. Caldwell also is a very good Kick Returner who adds the ability to take it all the way. I admit, I was not high on Caldwell early, I was skeptical, but he has convinced me and the team seems to really believe in him.

                  It is easy to say it won't hurt when you know he is going to be gone but deep down inside you are crying about it.

                    I realize you're just taunting the Bengals posters to start crap, but honestly are you oblivious to everything that has happened in Cincinnati recently?

                    Anyways, the lose will hurt, obviously. No Bengals fan is going to tell you that Caldwell is better than Housh right now. But he has the potential. And honestly, both Chad and Chris Henry are better than Housh. Yes. Chris "Jail is my home away from home" Henry is better than Houshmandzadeh.

                    The Bengals may not be very good at many things, but they certainly know how to find receivers. That's why none of us cried about the Jerome Simpson pick and it's why none of us are crying right now.

                        I dunno if Housh wants to go to another losing team. I think he'd love to go somewhere with a shot at a ring, especially because he's 31 (did anyone else think he was younger than that?) so I'm guessing he'll want a playoff team.

                        With Plaxico looking gone, he wouldn't be a bad option in NY no?

                            Yah, but he's also never had a mega contract in Cincinnati. From the talk of the last couple of years from Housh it's less about winning and more about getting respect. He thinks he deserves a big contract (and maybe he does).

                            Also, there was an article on Bengals.com that said if Housh got paid what he wanted by Saturday night then he would go to that team.

                            http://www.bengals.com/news/news.asp?story_id=7529

                            They're not out of it and the sides are talking, but there is no midnight deal looming like there was with him four years ago.

                            Quarterback Carson Palmer has turned into Tom Daschle without the limos and is lobbying Houshmandzadeh hard. He called Houshmandzadeh on Thursday while he was working out.

                            "He just said, 'Don't forget us,' and I told him the same thing I'm telling you," Houshmandzadeh said Thursday night. "If they're fair, we'll make history. If not, we can still hang out and be friends."

                            Houshmandzadeh said he wants to be on a team by Saturday night.

                            "I don't want it to go into Sunday," he said.

                            He said the Bengals and agent Kennard McGuire have talked and there is a sense that both sides would like to reach a resolution that keeps him in Cincinnati.

                              C'mon Ravens fans, we have to gang up on the Steelers fans. They just won a Super Bowl, we have to stir up some trouble with them.
