La Russa & Mike Holmgren: Cross-Sport Doppelgangers


Mike Holmgren is in the midst of stumbling through his final year as head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.

Today on the sports blog of our sister paper, Seattle Weekly, former RFT staff writer Mike Seely has an interesting take on the likely legacy of Holmgren.

Seely speculates that Holmgren will go down as the Tony LaRussa of the NFL. Why? For starters, the pair have nearly identical career winning percentages.

It's worth a read, if only to get another look at this priceless, puppy-faced picture LaRussa.
