    The OP was referring to Holmgren as a "personnel guy" and so was I. He is awful at best.

    Holmgren as coach I would love to see

    As GM he might be one of the few like Matt Millen that make Jerruh look really good

    This.

    He's proven to be a great coach. He's also proven to be a miserable personnel guy.

    105.3 the fan reporting that Holmgren and JJ have always liked each other and have mutual admiration. They think he could end up here because of that.

    Take it for what it's worth.

    Personally I don't see it happening.

    That's how I feel. I will forever blame Holmgren for not getting RG3 when he had every advantage, and if I was the owner I would undoubtably fire him.

    They were offered a deal they couldn't refuse. RGIII in Cleveland wouldn't be the same RGIII in Wash. Wash has a much better team around him than Cleveland does.

    While I do agree, one thing about the NFL is, if you don't have a franchise QB, you are either treading water or sinking. RG3 was a chance for Cleveland to make a huge move in a positive direction and they didn't and will be treading water for the for seeable future unless another franchise QB falls in their lap.

    And CLE was pretty hesitant about giving up too much to get RG3, if they wanted him as much as washington, they easily coul've beaten their offer because no matter what the 4th pick > the 6th pick (not to mention they picked before washington in round 2 as well). The rest was just details to be worked out.

    He'd make an interesting consultant in Dallas. The kind of guy Jason could definitely learn things from. I could see something being worked out on an interim basis, and I'd be all for it.

    I hope Holmgren doesn't mind punching a time clock.

    I'm underwhelmed by Holmgren, but maybe they could hire him to be "game time clock management quality control specialist". :)

    As a personnel guy he is pretty bad. But he is a great coach. Plus from what I understand Holmgren and Jerry Jones are friends. Bring him in as a consultant to help bring along the coaching staff.

    You don't need his West Coast Offense expertise, just his knowledge of the game, what to do in certain situations, offense strategy and philosophies. Plus Holmgren coached Brett Favre, and whether we want to admit it or not, Romo's game is similar to Brett's.

    As long as Holmgren stays away from the draft room and personnel suggestions, I see no problems with him being a consultant here.

    I don't think Holmgren would mind that at all.

    But I think a huge opportunity was missed when Dan Reeves would not come here because of that. Jason could have learned a lot from him.
