The Holmgren buzz

The Browns and Chiefs are getting ready to kick off on a beautiful, sunny day in Kansas City. That isn't what everyone in the press box is talking about, though.

It's looking more and more as though Mike Holmgren will be named director of football operations for the Browns as soon as Monday. The clincher came Saturday when he turned down an offer to be president of the Seattle Seahawks in his home town.

The only question is - will Holmgren want to coach, too? It's looking that way. Holmgren could be president and coach and then hire an adept talent evaluator to run the draft and free agency. Holmgren would be his own boss and the boss of the general manager. It would be a unique setup.

I just don't see Holmgren sitting behind a desk. Coaching is in his blood. If it goes that way, Eric Mangini is obviously out. Some of his staunchest critics expect him to resign today. I don't think that will happen. He certainly deserves the right to finish the season.
