Re: Mike Holmgren rips Browns' Trent Richardson trade

Obviously, Mike Holmgren has no inclination to work in the NFL again (even though there are still teams that would hire him...even after this. Haha). I think there is a large enough contingent that is thinking similarly as him to merit him saying what he said. It's not like he's saying something wildly insane. I would only call it poor judgement to say it if he were actively pursuing a job as a GM or coach, which he isn't. After hearing about the trade, even my first reaction was that the Browns were mailing it in for the season already, & I don't hold Richardson in some unmerited high regard. I can agree with the notion that he could be considered their best offensive player not named Joe Thomas, but that isn't saying much considering the lack of offensive talent the team has. Gordon is an off field liability and Jordan Cameron is a rookie on the rise. Blah....

Mike is suffering from reality.
Mike is just now looking in the mirror and understanding that he is not all that and a bag of chips.

Mike in GRB...Superbowl
Mike in SEA...GM & Coach...epic fail.
Mike in CLE...no redemption...fail again.
The magic man in GRB was Ron Wolf.

I would hardly consider his tenure in Seattle an "epic fail". He had 7 out of 10 seasons with a winning record, won their division 5 times, and went to a Super Bowl. Most coaches do worse than that in an entire career. Haha. The Browns are just an epic fail of an organization. I almost feel bad for any President, GM, or coach that goes there.

Re: Mike Holmgren rips Browns' Trent Richardson trade

I look at Mike and I see a guy that ran out on the Packers.
The talent floundered on the edge of getting back to the SB.
He could have had another titletown ring...but instead left and GRB stood in suspended animation while Ray Rhodes become headcoach.
