Kurt Warner -- as he's been doing to NFC West foes all season -- torched the Seattle secondary. He ended his day early with 263 yards and four touchdown passes. Two of those scores were to Larry Fitzgerald, who concluded yet another strong season in the desert. The game itself, however, took a back seat to a few things.
First of all, Mike Holmgren coached his last game for the Seahawks. After a very strong tenure which saw Seattle become a regular in the playoffs and visit their first Super Bowl, Holmgren steps down as easily the most decorated coach in franchise history. They visited the postseason in six of his 10 seasons, and they had only done so four times in their first 23 years of existence. After the game, he was -- understandably -- quite emotional.
"I started talking to the team, and I couldn't talk," he said. "I'm an emotional coach, anyway, and I told them I'd visit with them (Monday), because if I tried to do it now, it'd be ridiculous."
