  1. Marcus will cry if Seattle drafts Desmond (unlikely) in the same offseason they pretty much told him see ya wouldn’t wanna be ya.

  2. Screensmoke says:

    Trufant would be happy and proud!

  3. No USC QB?

  4. raymaines says:

    Mike Holmgren is charming and entertaining to listen to but it’s almost painful to read a transcript of what he says. I don’t think he’s ever uttered an actual complete, whole sentence in his entire adult life. When you listen to him you understand what he’s saying, but most of his remarks don’t even make sense when you read them later.

  5. raymaines–kind of like Carrol’s run-on sentences?! LOL!

    Im over Holmgren. I always supported him, especially after he admitted he screwed the pooch cutting Jay Bellamy (because he wasnt a vocal leader) and letting BOTH Sam Adams and Phillip Daniels go for nothing…in Daniels case, he was perhaps the finest DT in football, and Holmy lost him for about 400k. Moron.

    But last year he came out and refuted all that and seemed to have amnesia about just how awful a GM he was. He ignored the PI expose on Jerramy Stevens, pretty much denying the guys a creep, and actually said he’d draft him again. Aside from his antics outside football, the guy sucked onfield. Holmgren came off as his usual arrogant self, and you could see why they called him The Big Show.

    I was bummed when we didnt hire him after Timmay! got his ass canned, but Im so damn glad we didnt now.

    My favorite Seahawks coach is still Chuck Knox. Second is Carrol. Thats how much my feelings on Holmy have changed.

  6. I love Big Mike 1st, then Knox, then PC (until he gets us to the SB and we win it).

  7. Holmgren was always overrated in my book. He took all the credit for Brett favre winning in green bay. 1 sb victory with an average qb in hasselbeck would have done a lot for his career in terms of prestige.
