    Mike Holmgren would be an instant upgrade at HC and OC.

    Don't think it's going to happen, though.

    Holmgren would be a lame duck coach who would have no vested interest in the team's long term success. Would probably only stay 2 or 3 years. I smell a guy who wants to come here for one big fat payday before he retires.

    No thanks.

    17 years as a HC and produced a winner in 14 of them.

    Excellent track record working with QBs. Helped develop the careers of Steve Young, Brett Favre and Matt Hasselbeck.

    I want him as an OC. Having this coach/cooarnator dual job is just not working for us. In a perfect world we bring in he as a HC and downgrade Red to OC

    Red's worst aspect is his horrible OC skills. So....NO!

    Jerry is waiting till Tuesday to see if Brian Kelly wants to coach in the NFL. He is another Jimmy Johnson type coach.

    I'm not saying Holmgren would be the ideal choice. Maybe he would, maybe it'd be better to keep Garrett - I honestly don't know. But I don't think his accomplishments should be dismissed; think of the two teams he led to the Super Bowl.

    Green Bay has been a consistent playoff contender for so long than I think people look back at what Holmgren did and take it for granted. They forget how moribund the franchise was before him, and for how long that'd been the case. He led them to two Super Bowl appearances, and one win.

    And the Seahawks...? Think about it. He took the Seahawks to the Super Bowl. Which they may have won if not for some very poor officiating. And he did it with Matt Hasselback at QB.

    The man can coach, and teach, and call a good ballgame. I don't doubt that at all.

    Anything longer than about 5 years in today's NFL is an anomaly, so 2-3 years is about par...no problem with that as long as the results are good. As an aside, we're probably only 3 or 4 years from blowing up this team in large part and replacing a few key components anyway...win now. The only reason a team rebuilds is to win sooner rather than later...this 'long term' stuff is BS.
