"I'm a firm believer in doing things when you're ready," said Holmgren, 40, who is a headmaster for the first time in his career. "I'd be foolish if I wasn't a little nervous.

The closer Mike Holmgren gets to the end of his coaching career in Seattle, the more reluctantly he seems to be going. Recently, Holmgren said he might not be done with coaching and even raised a question about the sabbatical he has planned with his wife. Two weeks ago, he gave his version of how his divorce with the Seahawks took effect. Holmgren said he told the front office he probably would retire after the 2008 season, then went to Phoenix for a vacation with his wife. Upon his return, he told the team he might want to discuss an extension.

Mike Shanahan agreed Tuesday to become the coach of the Washington Redskins, the latest step in a major overhaul of a troubled franchise. Shanahan's decision to join the team was confirmed to the Associated Press by an official within the NFL. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team was not commenting on its coaching search. The Redskins announced that they would hold a news conference today, although they did not say why. The deal with Shanahan is for five years, The Denver Post reported on its Web site.

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Flyers coach Paul Holmgren looks as if he could lace up his skates and go out there and knock a few heads right now.His stomach is flat. His legs are strong. His hands can still make fists big enough to put the fear of a haymaker into your head. And the desire is still there. Oh, yes, the desire is still there. One look at his glazed eyes after a particularly tough loss and you know the man still has the psyche of a player.Holmgren, 35, who ended his 10-year playing career in 1985, uses his head to play hockey these days.

SEATTLE -- About the only thing Bill Parcells and Mike Holmgren appear to have in common are long coaching careers and Super Bowl wins. But don't completely believe what you see. Parcells is the iconic, 65-year-old Dallas Cowboys coach who has a 19-year NFL head-coaching pedigree built upon rugged defenses. His reputation is also rugged, hardened by coaching both New York teams for a combined 11 years. Parcells is irascible, often caustic, to inquisitors - many, he believes, try to "antagonize" him. "A legend," is what Holmgren calls his self-described friend on the eve of their first postseason meeting since the Super Bowl in January 1997.

M&T BANK Stadium is big, but it may not be big enough tomorrow for the robust egos of both Mike Holmgren and Brian Billick. Entertainingly robust egos, we must point out. Both men have Super Bowl rings. Both have Brigham Young/Bill Walsh/Bay Area/quarterback roots and connections. And both have had to stand tall against heavy criticism about their respective decisions to install young, inexperienced quarterbacks as insta-NFL starters. But whereas Billick unceremoniously showed veteran Trent Dilfer the door after the Super Bowl win, Holmgren merely asks Dilfer to stand on the sideline and give the Seahawks a backup quarterback who knows how to manage a game.

Mike Holmgren is new to the Seattle Seahawks, but he knows their neighborhood. It is smack in the middle of mediocrity, just south of football nirvana.The Seahawks haven't seen the klieg lights of the postseason since quarterback Dave Krieg and coach Chuck Knox threw the switch in 1988 after a 9-7 regular season. That 10-year playoff drought ranks as the longest in the NFL, but it's nothing new to Holmgren, Seattle's first-year general manager and head coach.When Holmgren reported to Green Bay as a rookie head coach in 1992, the Packers hadn't been to the playoffs in nine years and three coaches.

Playing for their playoff lives, Eli Manning and the New York Giants were efficient, focused and dominant. Playing for their new general manager, the Washington Redskins (4-10) did a good job of convincing the boss that maybe everyone ought to be fired. The Giants kept themselves in the postseason hunt Monday night with one of the most lopsided victories in the long, storied series against their NFC East rival. New York scored on six of its first seven possessions and controlled every facet of the game in a 45-12 win that wasn't as close as even that margin of victory would indicate.

And now comes Mike Holmgren opening the discussion about possible retirement (not the first time). Or maybe staying for a final year. Or even re-upping for the future. There used to be a time when, if an NFL team made the playoffs, the last thing on the organization's agenda was looking for a new coach. This year, though, the Washington Redskins' Joe Gibbs unexpectedly quit. Admirably, Gibbs is choosing family over profession. That was followed by the annual Tony Dungy soul-searching in Indianapolis.

DETROIT -- Darrell Jackson may be the player who most exemplifies the underdog Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's Super Bowl. The six-year veteran is one of the NFL's best receivers that no one knows. Unheralded as a third-round draft pick in 2000, Jackson quickly outdistanced, among others, his one-time University of Florida teammate, Travis Taylor, who was chosen 10th in that draft by the Ravens. Still, after 378 career catches and despite two big games in this year's playoffs, Jackson, 27, feels he is slighted in any discussion of the league's elite receivers.
