Holmgren runs the west coast offense. Timing routes, three step drops, etc. That's why Mariucci, Gruden, and Reid (all of whom were his assistants) ran the west coast offense on their own teams.
Whisenhunt runs a vertical offense predicated on the power running game. Remember the Steelers in the 90's with Jerome Bettis? That's his coaching pedigree.
But you can certainly believe that I'm making this stuff up if you want. I was just trying to explain to you why the combination of coaches you were suggesting is unrealistic. You obviously like Holmgren so someone from that style of offense would make more sense as an OC.
And the stuff about Whis getting offered a coaching job and being close to another while Holmgren hasn't gotten an interview isn't an opinion.
