The Buck Stops Somewhere Over There
Coach Mike Holmgren is one standup guy, isn't he folks? He leads his NFC Champions Seattle Seahawks into the Super Bowl, and sure he made some mistakes, but hey we are all human. We make mistakes. I am sure Mike will place blame exactly where its supposed to go. Facing a crowd of about 15,000 Seahawk fans Holmgren let them all know where the buck stops.
"We knew it was going to be tough going up against the Pittsburgh Steelers," Holmgren said. "I didn't know we were going to have to play the guys in the striped shirts as well."
Ok, not what I expected, I mean sure the Darrel Jackson PI call was tough, and Big Ben never crossed the goal line, but still can we blame the refs for everything?
Did the Refs throw a game killing interception? Did the Refs miss any tackles during Willie Parker's 75 yard run? Did the Refs completely blow protection on a gadget play that has been run by the Steelers in every game since November? Did the Refs cause Jerremy Stevens's hand to be made of tissue paper? (New Rule, putting 2 Rs in a name like Jeremy should disqualify anyone from being a parent)
Yes the Steelers did benefit from some key calls, but to hear a former Super Bowl winning coach be so oblivious to his own mistakes seems to be in of itself a mistake. Let's all relax people, it is still Seattle after all, two shots of expresso and this is all just a bad memory.
