Holmgren says slow start hurt Seahawks as much as ugly end

Associated Press - September 17, 2007 11:45 AM ET

SEATTLE (AP) - Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren says the beginning was as bad as the end of the game at Arizona.

He told KIRO Radio that his team didn't match the intensity of the Cardinals at the start in falling behind 17-0.

Then after Seattle rallied and was in a position for a possible winning score, a botched handoff allowed Arizona to take a 23-20 victory.

Holmgren says it was a quiet trip home on the plane. He says the players will bounce back for next Sunday's game against Cincinnati.
