Mike Holmgren: Re-signing Trufant "the right thing to do"

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Coach Mike Holmgren openly says during the season that he doesn't do much meddling in terms of the defensive gameplan during the season.

That doesn't mean he doesn't have opinions about that side of the ball. Especially when it comes to a player like Marcus Trufant, whom the Seahawks chose in the first round when Holmgren was still in charge of personnel.

And when the team announced Trufant's signing on Wednesday, Holmgren attended the press conference and talked about his belief that a long-term agreement to keep Trufant in Seattle was the right thing for both the franchise and the player. Listen to the mp3 of what Holmgren had to say with this file: Mike Holmgren, March 26.mp3.

I like Trufant, be he was simply overpaid. Since when did he become a shut down corner???? One above-average season is worth 50 mil???? My goodness. Another near sighted contract extension that'll he'll never live up to. There's a big difference between an above average corner, and a shut down corner. Trufant has been burned way too many times to get shut down money.

Half these guys, if it wasn't for football they would be selling used cars or aluminum siding!
The ticket price isn't worth it anymore, they don't care what the contract is...the fans are going to pony up, not Paul. I really don't think us fans of football are getting the bang for our bucks, unless one thinks a male player wiggling his ass in the end zone is worth the money?

Great move this week in signing Tatupu and signing Trufant to long term deals. Now get Peterson signed and the O line. and we are ready to ROCK
