Frank hustled out to practice so here's a couple more notes from Holmgren's press conference.
Even after another bad performance from Seattle's secondary Holmgren believes they can bounce back. Holmgren said he expects the defensive backs to play better this Sunday because that's been the team's track record after performing poorly the week before.
Holmgren said linebacker Lofa Tatupu is playing "just OK" right now. He expects guys like Tatupu, Matt Hasselbeck, Walter Jones, Marcus Trufant and other Pro Bowlers to play great. And when they don't play well, the team's play obviously suffers. Holmgren went on to say that he believes Tatupu's best football is ahead of him.
Holmgren said the challenge against Green Bay, even though the team's running game is struggling and they have an explosive receiving corps, is still stopping the run.
Holmgren again addressed the team's struggles on the East Coast: "As much as you guys have thought about this Eastern stuff, I've thought about it more, I want you to know that," Holmgren said. "It's a bugger. I am so disappointed in how we played that football game. And we get another crack it down the road here in a couple weeks and hopefully we play better."
Holmgren went on to say that Seattle was 5-5 on the road in the last 10 game prior to playing the Giants, which included road losses to Atlanta and Carolina after Seattle clinched its playoff berth.
Holmgren also said he met with the offensive and defensive staff early this week to go over changes that need to be made on both sides of the ball.
