He was so busy preparing to leave that he didn't get his team ready to play a much less talented Denver Bronco team. What in the world would make you think that he'd want to come back after the way he left?
NDPackerFan said:OK Steel Wheels,
Where did you read this stuff about TT wanting Holmgren back in GB? I haven't heard anything of the sort.
packedhouse01 said:At the time he left he was so full of himself that he thought he could coach anywhere and be a GM anywhere and win. What he wasn't smart enough to realize was what a special place Green Bay was. If he and Wolf could have put their differences aside and just worked together they could have built a true dynasty here. Instead he got greedy and left to become king.
NDPackerFan said:Ron Wolf should be given a HUGE amount of the credit for turning this franchise around. He saw a young gunslinger in Favre that Glanville had so buried in Atlanta, he couldn't even see the light of day. Then what did he do? Coerced Reggie White into dawning the green and gold and bringing a SB trophy back where it belongs. I can't sit and listen to someone bash Ron Wolf, the guy was a flat out genius.
Why do teams still try and talk him out of retirement? The man is a proven winner for what he brought to this team and he should be held in the highest regard along with all Packer greats IMHO.
NDPackerFan said:Steel Wheels,
I actually think you have this situation backwards. Wolf wasn't the credit hog you proclaim him to be, instead it was MIKE HOLMGREN. He's always wanted to be thought of as a genius who should sit on the same level as a Bill Walsh, etc. As far as I'm concerned, his ego got in the way when people started bringing up the magic that Ron Wolf had worked to bring a Packer team from the doldrums to the promised land. Mike could never handle that and therefore, he's doing an "average at best" job in Seattle right now. I know I posted that I have no huge problem with Holmgren and I really don't, I just don't think it would work a second time around if he were to come back, that's all.
