Ruskell's contract fuels Holmgren-to-Seattle rumors

We posted recently on the rumor linking former Packers and Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren back to Seattle, where he would be installed not as coach or G.M. but as the boss of both positions.

Adam Schefter of ESPN has an intriguing nugget that serves only to fuel this rumor.

Current President of Football Operations and G.M. Tim Ruskell, per Schefter, is in the final year of his contract, with no talks regarding an extension.

But the question becomes whether Holmgren would thrive in a Tuna-type role with any team.  His tenure as both G.M. and coach of the Seahawks wasn’t successful, and he didn’t begin to thrive as head coach until he gave up the General Manager duties.

    The Seahawks were robbed of the Superbowl, because the Steelers had way way way more marketing potential. They are at a disadvantage.

    Seattle is the perfect spot for Mr. Holmgren. Please come back. Ruskell pushed you out. Please push your way back in. Once you do, get rid of Mora. Gruden maybe?
