Holmgren, vague on his future, touted to fill 49ers post
Nothing about the Seahawks' slip-slidin' away season has gone as expected.
But this week, the Seahawks are stepping into another team's misery as they prepare to face the 49ers in San Francisco. The 49ers' abrupt firing of coach Mike Nolan on Monday is a situation the Seahawks helped create, and one they eventually could resolve.
One of Nolan's biggest problems during his 18-37 tenure with the club was his mishandling of former first-round draft choice Alex Smith -- a once-promising quarterback prospect who went down, and out, with a separated shoulder while being sacked by Seahawks defensive tackle Rocky Bernard in the teams' Week 4 game in San Francisco last season. Nolan prodded Smith to return too early last season, which led to his having season-ending surgery last month.
The perceived answer to everything that continues to ail the franchise, meanwhile, will be standing on the opposite sideline Sunday in the looming -- and luminous -- presence of Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren.
Now wouldn't that be a kick in the face?
