I just listened to Mitch Levy's interview of Mike Holmgren this morning, and a couple things jumped out:
1) While discussing Justin Forsett, he said that his decision at the end is either with the Seahawks or elsewhere. He essentially acknowledged that Forsett will not get through waivers if they try to place him on the practice squad. He also said he realizes that there could be a public backlash if the guy is cut.
2) Regarding T.J. Duckett, Hugh Millen was very critical, saying that he is a one-trick pony whose one trick is not that effective. Holmgren did not really defend Duckett, instead acknowledging that "the pile is pretty big" in front of him, meaning the other running backs. He said the Duckett decision also will come down to the end.
3) Mitch used a Woodward and Bernstein interviewing technique in which he basically said he believes Lawrence Jackson will be the starter. The beauty of that technique is that it hypothetically forces Holmgren to either say, No, No, Jackson is not the starter. Or to ignore what Mitch says, thus sort of endorsing. Holmgren not only didn't deny it, he said that if it turns out that way, Darryl Tapp has to suck it up. He also said Tapp knows that most teams don't draft guys No. 1 and not expect them to play. So there you have it.
