4-1 gets noticed

Posted Oct 13, 2009

Posted: 8:50 p.m.

The Bengals 4-1 start is getting noticed. They are to be featured this week on NFL Today, CBS’ national pregame show and Shannon Sharpe is going to be at practice Thursday to do interviews.

Plus, Seahawks wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh admitted on Sirius radio this week that he wanted the Bengals to lose every game this season once he left via free agency back in March.

Now he says he’s pulling for them when asked if he’s surprised with the 4-1 start.

“No, I’m not shocked. They have a lot of good players in Cincinnati. They’ve got players on that team that are really, really good,” he said on the air. “I am not shocked at all and I told somebody yesterday, you know what is weird when I left the Bengals, I wanted to stay, but I had to go. And there was something in me like, man I wanted them to lose every game.

“And it’s almost like you get a divorce from your wife. You really don’t want to be with her but you see her with another dude and you’re like, ahhhh. And it really doesn’t bother you, but it kind of does and then you finally get over it. So you know what? I want them to do well. Carson is my boy. Chad  is my boy. I’ve got a lot of boys on that team and I want them to do well and I’m happy they are doing well. I really am. But, initially, I didn’t want them to do well and I don’t know why that was the case.”

    Before this week’s games were played I don’t think you could have found one person on the face of the Earth that would have said that Eli Manning would finish as this week’s #1 fantasy QB, and Kirk Cousins would completely implode and throw 4 INTs and just 1 TD. And not that it matters for anyone outside of 2QB leagues, but the Bills finally benched E.J. Manuel in favor of Kyle Orton on Monday.
