I'm working on reserves from the past day (i.e., little sleep). So I'll trudge along in the most coherent manner possible.
What's the scenario that you hoped for with the Pro Bowl? Chad Johnson scores a touchdown and increases his anti-Bengals position? Perhaps T.J. Houshmandzadeh representing the team in a positive manner? Or perhaps, nothing at all. Did you watch the game?
Houshmandzadeh caught four passes for 44 yards and two touchdowns. His second touchdown was impressive. Ben Roethlisberger threw up a pass towards the back right pylon. Houshmandzadeh jumped and reached over Marcus Trufant stealing the pass destined to hit the cornerback's shoulders. Chad Johnson caught two passes for 30 yards -- both on first down.
T.J. Houshmandzadeh is entering his final season under contract with a base salary of $2.5 million.
"I hope Marvin and Brat were watching."
