Talk about trying to save face after giving up a 1 for Deion. From the Globe. Former Patriots receiver Deion Branch totaled 53 catches and four touchdowns in his first season with the Seahawks, but Seattle coach Mike Holmgren still believes he was worth the first-round pick (24th overall) and big salary the team surrendered to acquire him. "If I got to 24th and I knew I could take Deion Branch, I'd take him," Holmgren said. "It worked out well for Seattle. He'll be a good player for the Seahawks for a long time." I know DB is and will be a good receiver for the rest of his career, but let's compair him to our first round pick in 2 years. Holmgren is trying to justify this move now that his team has no 1st round pick. Damage control at it's best.
