    Mike Holmgren, appearing on his weekly radio show on KJR-AM 950 on Friday, made it crystal clear he's interested in speaking with the Seattle Seahawks about their now-open general manager's position. "Absolutely I would like to talk to them," Holmgren said on the Dave "Softy" Mahler show. "I think I'd made it pretty clear I'd like to go back to work after this season. I didn't know where. "This is a bit of a surprising development in Seattle, but this is an opening. I've also said the people and the team have to want you, the situation and opening have to be right. So I've tried to keep an open mind and not get too emotional about it. "This is not news. Everyone in my family is there and I have a strong attachment to the city and my time there. But I also know things change. You never know. The organization has to feel you're the right fit and things. So I'm keeping an open mind. "I'd like to talk to Paul (Allen) and Tod (Leiweke) and anybody else. If the fit is right, who knows?" Holmgren said whatever job he lands this coming season, he wants an active role, no matter what title is given.

    Him being coach and GM is what didn't work, as a GM I think he can be quite good as long as that's where he stays.

    Holmgren will get the GM job and look to see Holgren bring back Darell Jackson 82
    ( Holmgren drafted Darell Jackson)

    Holmgren wanted to be HC and GM at GB too but the Packers denied his demands. Well, we got Mike Sherman for those 2 jobs back then..... :bad:

    This is the same guy who thinks Vick is the future of the Eagles Platoon. As for Holmgren, he can succeed because he is happy in Seattle.

    Besides one or two teams, every other team would benefit with Holmgren at the helm. Dude knows his stuff.
