TJ Houshmandzadeh Not A Fan Of Kyle Orton

It saddens me that I have to start every post by saying "It's not like the Bears were going to actually take a shot," but it might not matter. During a recent interview, TJ Houshmadzadeh not only didn't seem too high on Orton, but is counted as a fan of Rex Grossman.

ON HIS GUT FEELING OF WHETHER OR NOT CHICAGO WOULD BE A GOOD FIT FOR HIM?

Houshmandzadeh: "No, I don't know. You know what's funny, man? Y'all probably going to laugh at me when I tell you this; I kind of like Rex Grossman."

ON GROSSMAN DEFINITELY NOT BEING BACK WITH BEARS NEXT SEASON

Houshmandzadeh: "No, but I'm saying ...I always watched on T.V. how they give Rex Grossman a hard time. I don't know why. He takes chances, but when those chances pay off, nobody talks about them.

WADDLE EMPHASIZES THE FACT THAT GROSSMAN IS NOT CARSON PALMER

Houshmandzadeh: "Oh yeah, yeah, I know. I'm just saying, you know, just his arm strength; he gets the ball down the field. He has that cocky confidence about him, and I don't even know him. It's just from what I see on T.V., and I liked that in him. When he had Bernard Berrian, he did pretty well getting the ball down the field, and you put Devin Hester in that position, had he had got a chance to play some games this year, I think Devin Hester would have had a better season just because of the fact that he's going to get the ball down the field. He's going to give Devin Hester chances to make plays with his speed and his explosion."

ON IF HE IS A FAN OF KYLE ORTON

Houshmandzadeh: "I don't know much about Kyle Orton. I know he went to Purdue. I know he played well as a rookie. I know he was a starter this year, and I know he fought his way back from an ankle injury because he didn't want Rex Grossman to play too well while he was hurt. He played well, though. He played well since his first year from starting compared to his rookie year. So, he did really well. I'm open to everything, I promise you that."

Warner and TJ are gone before we even had a shot to not go after them. Brace yourselves....it's shaping up to be a typical Bears offseason.
