The Big Show
It’s understandable that Cleveland Browns President Mike Holmgren feels friendly enough with Seattle media to speak to one of their radio shows.

After all, he coached the Seahawks to multiple NFC west titles and their only Super Bowl appearance.
But, Mikey, you probably shouldn’t have gotten cozy with Seattle media the same week your Cleveland Browns are hosting the Seahawks.
Reportedly, Holmgren was already rubbing the Cleveland media the wrong way for being difficult to reach during the team’s struggles on the field.
It appears he did himself no favors by opening up to the Seattle media.
During the interview, Holmgren spoke of adjusting to Cleveland “because of the people” and noted that his children and grandchildren still live in the Seattle area.
When asked how long he expected to run the Browns, he said, “I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be 10 years.
I’d like to see improvement here and lay the foundation here so that they can feel good about the team again before I make any changes.”
Holmgren went on to express his frustration over the Tennessee Titans barring his former Seahawks quarterback, Matt Hasselbeck, from speaking with him before a Browns/Titans game earlier this season.
Do Cleveland media have a legit gripe?
Based on Holmgren’s comments, it certainly seems like he openly misses Seattle and doesn’t plan on hanging around in Cleveland for too long.
