It was brought up during Mike Holmgren's press conference that the MNF broadcast mentioned that Holmgren said that Chris Spencer and Rob Sims would be good players for their next coach. This is how he addressed that:
"Did they really?" Holmgren asked. "I was kind of joking around because you know in those production meetings you have to have fun. They were asking the typical question. I said that. I probably had no idea that it would create that kind of reaction. I have been straight with you guys. You know my contract situation. We are taking it one year at a time. I love this football team, and I love Spencer and Sims. I think it is fairly safe to assume that if they play as long as Chris Gray has played, they will probably be playing for another coach."
