Coach Mike Holmgren explained why he thinks the NFL should not change its rule that exempts a formation penalty from the list of offensive penalties that draw 10-second clock runoffs late in games. He said it's important to have a 10-second runoff for penalties resulting from a team's attempt to stop the clock. He said it's a diffent situation entirely when a team is trying to run a play, as the Seahawks were Sunday in St. Louis. Holmgren dismissed concerns about a team hurriedly snapping the ball and throwing it downfield by noting that, in his view, it's impossible because the referee would still beholding the ball. Among the other issues Holmgren discussed today: the shotgun formation, Maurice Morris' performance, adapting to life without key red-zone weapons, possible tensions with the Vikings, Josh Brown's psyche, the disappearance of the screen play from the offense, firing assistant coaches during the season and, finally, Steve Hutchinson.
