Wednesday Press Conference

by: Michael Steffes

The feed doesn't seem to be working, perhaps because of the new website.

Anyway, here is what I got.

The only player out for this week is Will Heller. Matt and Deion are going to try to work and see if they can play. Coach says they will need to practice before they can play.

If Matt can't go, Seneca will QB again. Coach says he is better than Sunday night showed. He expects that Seneca will play better, and he thinks the team will play better offense this week.

Julius got upset because they pulled him out for the two minute drill at the end of the half. Coach didn't know that there was a problem till after the game. They talked yesterday, and now everything is good. He understood Jones' point of view.

Still, there is a way to handle those situations, and Holmgren addressed the team on that subject this morning. "What happened is done."

The running game is good, and all three players are doing well, so they will have to accept that there are only so many carries and they will be split up a bit.

Art Theil pressed Mike on the Lame Duck situation. Holmgren doesn't seem to sense any problems with the situation. He says the problem is that he doesnt have the team that he lined up on the first day of training camp. Injuries are the reason. Also, they need to score more points.

Holmgren says Seattle is his home, and this is his team. The future is all speculation.

That is all I got. ~END~
