Mike Holmgren is a rotten GM. Horrid. Awful. Donahue-esque. Holmgren's personnel decisions while in Seattle were so frequently abhorrent that it would be criminal to mention only one of them...but here is the worst: he actually signed Jeff George as a backup QB. If that doesn't cinch it for you, I don't know what will. He can't evaluate talent like Walsh. He was a really good offensive coordinator, and a pretty good coach...but as an exec, he is the sh*ts.
Shanahan? Really? Quick footnote the the "hire Shanny" crowd...He was a great offensive coordinator....but he couldn't win sh*t after Elway retired and Terrel Davis' injuries caught up with him. Take away his stars, and you take away his wins.
Guys...do you really want ot start this sh*t all over again next season? Really? Stop the f*cking madness, and understand that our defense is as big a problem as our offense right now. Why don't we see how the team finishes out before we start talking about who our next new coach is?
You didn't mention that Mike Holmgren is known for his role in developing the likes of Joe Montana, Steve Young, Bret Farve and Matt hasselbeck. I wouldn't consider that a bad thing. Pretty good resume if you ask me.
Have you also considered that he tried doing two very demanding and tough jobs at the same time? I don't think that anyone is capable of focusing and doing both jobs at the same time and be very successful at either.
But not to worry because right now he seems to be interested in the Cleveland Browns.
