    And that was "after" the starting line up was in place with contracts he negotiated on only last through that year/his term end. One Superbowl visit, the players were done in Seattle. Not a coach who "built" anything made to last.

    No argument with that. How many Superbowls had Seattle been to before that? How close had they ever come?

Since he was the "controller", how can he be labeled a good coach/GM after allowing the team to go 4-6 years backwards due to his horrible drafts, contracts and trades? Holmgren may have taken the Hawks to the big one but, he thoroughly damaged the team at the same time.

    And, Hasselback and our running back who makes me so sick I won't even mention his name were two of the most over-rated players every to dress in blue. Our offensive line and defense won us the Superbowl. Not the Candy-pants running back who would slide like a quarterback almost every play to avoid being hit.
    didnt that running back whose alma mater will win the national championship tonite also win the NFL MVP , lead the league in rushing, 3x Pro bowl, 2x All Pro

    I think I was 8 or 9 years old still wearing my cotton Steve Largent jersey that was about two sizes too small by then. I still have the Seattle Times Newspaper with Largent catching the record breaking pass. I also still have the sports page cover where Largent took revenge on that corner back who took a cheap shot on him...can't remember the name at the moment but, Largent de-cleated him. It was magical!

    You give teams a year’s worth of tape to look at and they figure you out.

    So while the Seahawks is my 2nd most favorite team in the NFL and RW has indeed had a fabulous year, just like Johnny Football, let's see what happens next year and thereafter, at least that's what I'll do before I start comparing them to the ELITE/Hall of Famers etc.

    It has yet to be seen whether these guys are 'Flash in the pans' are real game changers. Takes more than one year(The First Year) to figure that out.
    Yep look at Aikman 1-15 with the win coming from his back up, Steve Walsh. thats why they call it a career not a year.
