He had to say something his team tried to win the game, to bad they did not have fan support and any leadership other than there QB.

I lost all respect for him as a coach, and before this game I thought was a good guy. And what was up with his greed Motivational speech before the game,

Holmgren showed the Seahawks the winner’s share ($70,000+ in 1 dollar bills I guess it was all about the money baby for the Seahawk team.

Cowers Speech, lets win this one for Mr. Rooney, Jerome and the city of Pittsburgh.

X -Holmgren Fan No excuse for after the game behavior, none.

X- Bradshaw Fan No excuse not to be there for his team and the Burgh.

I can't believe he was so pathetic he wouldnt shake Cowher's hand! I dont care about what he says or any of that crap, but to not shake his hand after the game, he is a POS. Please tell me we play them next year, please! If we do, I feel sorry for their team, that will be the only game I want the Steelers to run up the score as much as possible.

We aren't going to play you unfortunately, believe me it would make more than the Seahawk fanbase's year to play you, as to why it happened...simple, pure chaos. Mike and Bill are friends in RL, a football game will never change that, unless you are the part of the media looking for a story to sell.

Mike himself was angry he couldn't get to Bill and shake his hand, end of story, unless you really believe that he would be so classless, check his Superbowl loss before this and you have your answer.

I believe Tunch & Wolf both have said that Holmgren later went to the Stiller lockerroom to congradulate Cowher as-soon-as he could.

With the tightly-scripted-for-time post-game presentation to be televised onthe fieldd, it's entirely possible (probable? ) that Holmgren couldn't get to Cowher, who hasn't made a fuss about this subject:
if Cowher is OK with-it, I am, too.

Whatever chaos there was after the game Holmgren should have made the extra effort to find Bill Cowher and shake his hand on the field!! not in a hallway outside of a locker room.

The Bottom line , we win!

I do beleive Holmgren would have shaken hands, no matter what he think of the refs, he can`t blame Bill.

I`m just pissed that Ben under htrew a wide open Wilosn in the endzone, or we would have been up 28-3!

HEY Remember This NFL Network Commercial


"The First Thing I'd Do, is Fire Mike Holmgren"

Remind you of a commercial?

Hey Holmgren Let me Shine My Shoes With Your Butt Ugly Jersey You Assjack
(Not Really But Holmgren is an assjack)

Default Re: Holmgren sucks!

Just wanna chime in and correct a couple of misconceptions about Holmgren before everyone has him burning in Hades...

1. Holmgren DID look for Cowher at the end of the game, but both coaches went to the wrong 25 yard line. By the time they realized the other one was on the other side of the field, the losing team and coaches were being escorted off to prepare for the victory rally. Holmgren then waited in the tunnel until Cowher came off the field, and shook his hand then.

2. Holmgren's speech did NOT center around the game's paycheck of $70,000. This is an internet rumor that got started on gameday and has passed through a lot of message boards. I believe it first appeared in an editorial column somewhere Sunday evening.

3. Holmgren has only made ONE comment about the officiating since the game, and that was when he told the crowd at the Seattle rally that he didn't think the Seahawks would have to battle against the men in stripes (in addition to Steelers). That was IT! Considering how controversial a lot of people think the officiating was, I think Holmgren and the rest of the team has done a stand-up job of not making a big deal out of it.

You guys can hate on Mike Holmgren all you want, but I just want to make sure it's not for the wrong reasons!
