Mike Holmgren wins last home game as Seattle coach, beat NYJ 13-3

It has been a rough final for the only coach to ever take the Seahawks to the Super Bowl. From AP-

Seattle’s Maurice Morris sliced through the snow like a sled for a season-high 116 yards and John Carlson scored the only touchdown on a short pass from backup Seneca Wallace as the lowly Seahawks ended New York’s stay atop the AFC East with a 13-3 upset Sunday.

“Three points is obviously not enough. There are a lot of reasons for that,” Favre said. “We are well aware of what opportunities that have been there for us. That’s what’s disappointing.”

Holmgren, who’s taking a sabbatical from football in 2009, walked around the edge of the field with tears in his eyes immediately after the second win in eight games for Seattle (4-11). Green Day’s “Time of Your Life” blared over the public-address system amid a weird scene of snowballs pelting down around the 60-year-old coach.

The Jets go to 0-4 for west coast games this year with this defeat. The slumping Jets who were once 8-3 and atop the AFC East can only make the playoffs if they beat the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo beats New England next weekend.

I grew up following the Jets, so whenever they and Miami play I have mixed feelings. Its my hope either one of Jets or Dolphins win the AFC East and the cheating defending champs are knocked out of the picture by Buffalo.
