Some people were Housh haters during his time in Seattle. I was not one of them. I like his competitive edge and confidence. He appears to be struggling in Baltimore with only two catches through three games, and is now starting to talk again. He sounds contrite, but you have to feel for a guy who might have made two bad choices as a free agent.
During this piece by Dan Kolko, you can see the frustration building:
“I knew it would take time, and I was willing to say to myself, ‘If I don’t get the ball, then I’m not gonna make a big deal,’ so to speak,” Houshmandzadeh said. “It mattered, but it didn’t matter, because I was new. But I didn’t even play, let alone get the ball, so that’s different for me. And I didn’t expect that. Hopefully, things will change.
“Is it frustrating? Yes and no, because the only time it becomes frustrating is when you expect things and look forward to things, and I didn’t expect them. So it’s still frustrating, but it’s not as frustrating [as it would have been] had I been on this team all training camp and things of that nature.”
Here’s to hoping Housh finds his way and makes an impact on a good Baltimore team.
