Mike Holmgren’s name was floated as a potential head coach for the San Francisco 49ers this offseason, but rumors never materialized. The team chose to promote defensive line coach Jim Tomsula instead, which may or may not end in disaster. Speaking with Rich Eisen on Friday, Holmgren shared his side of the story, via Pro Football Talk, and it revealed an interesting twist: “I...

Holmgren: Russell Wilson should sign deal from Seattle

Former Seattle Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren thinks Russell Wilson would be making a huge mistake to play out the 2015 NFL season under his current contract. Wilson is set to earn just $1.5 million if he and the Seahawks don’t get a deal done before the start of training camp—a self-imposed deadline. Many have wondered if Seattle has been low-balling the young star quarterback—a...

Mike Holmgren confirms Oakland visit… on Seattle radio

When I wrote up the rumors regarding Mike Holmgren potentially coaching the Oakland Raiders, I joked about finding out more on Seattle radio. Apparently, it wasn’t a joke as Mike Holmgren actually did just that. “Yeah, I did go down there,” Holmgren told Mitch Levy. “A couple of years ago, I had met with [owner] Mark [Davis] about possibly working with the Raiders, and it...

Is Mike Holmgren a candidate to coach the Raiders?

Mike Holmgren’s name is apparently in the mix with the Oakland Raiders, according to Pro Football Talk. Strong and persistent chatter has emerged in recent days linking Holmgren to the job. It’s a fairly obvious connection, given that former Holmgren lieutenant Reggie McKenzie serves as the General Manager in Oakland. McKenzie, who could be the next guy out the door in Oakland...

Mike Holmgren linked to Raiders coaching job

According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, former Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren was at the Oakland Raiders facility last week.  It remains to be seen exactly what this might mean, but the idea of general manager Reggie McKenzie bringing in someone he worked with in the past in Green Bay could make some sense. As Florio stated, Holmgren wouldn’t...

The Folly of the Smartest Man in the Room – How Mike Holmgren Nearly Destroyed the Cleveland Browns

WRITTEN BY JOHN STEVENS Introduction I wasn’t alive for the kinds of things that built the Cleveland Curse, or those events that truly hardened Browns fans for things to come. Even for the Browns Relocation controversy, I was only 6 years old, and while I knew it was a truly terrible thing for the city,  more of that was borne from just being a confused child; I had no idea how...

Mike McCarthy no longer resides in Mike Holmgren’s shadow In an earlier post, we took a look at the comparison between former Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf and current general manager Ted Thompson.

Joe Banner, the 3-4 versus the 4-3 and agent Jimmy Sexton

One of the scariest things for Browns fans in the transition from Mike Holmgren to Joe Banner was Banner’s decision to switch defenses. It isn’t that Cleveland Browns fans have that much of a preference, other than they have a preference against switching schemes all the time. You know, continuity and all that? The Browns were a 3-4 defense with Romeo Crennel and Eric Mangini...
