I would seriously consider it..Holmgren was stripped of his GM duties and the team did much better & made it to a Super Bowl with Ruskell taking control of the team's front office. I don't know why some people are so hot on guys like Holmgren and Shanahan, I don't think their next steps will be nearly as successful as where they had previously coached.
This is like giving George Seifert all the credit for Winning the Superbowl in 1989 when CLEARLY, the players he had were the one's Bill Walsh put together. If Walsh had stayed a couple more years, it would have been a back to back Superbowl for him and may have even been a 3-peat!
If you read what Fox sport is saying about Ruskell today, they didn't think he was so hot.
