Michael Boulware will remain the team’s starting strong safety despite what happened Sunday (allowing the decisive TD pass in the final minute against San Diego). Coach Mike Holmgren confirmed this today. Holmgren did indicate that takin Boulware out of the game should have been a consideration when the Chargers needed a touchdown to win the game. Boulware was in the game primarily for his run defense. Given that only a long TD pass was likely to beat the Hawks in that situation, the team could have replaced him with a better pass defender. Boulware has struggled against the deep ball this season, as you might have read.
