Shouldn't it be easier to appreciate the good stuff once he's gone? I liked MM, just like I liked Sherman. Both were kept beyond their effective date, but they contributed more good than bad in their respective tenures. I wasn't crazy about Holmgren in his final year. Doesn't mean I need to shit on him.
I understood why Holmgren left. He wanted to run the whole show and that wasn't going to happen in GB. But a LOT of people shit on Holmgren with the way things ended. People thought he was mentally checked out and looking ahead to his future gig in the 1998 season. Now imagine if his last two seasons only netted the team 13 wins.
I think if he did stick around another 5-6 years there's probably another SB trip in there somewhere but I think we would have also seen Holmie and Favre clash much like Rodgers and MM did.
