Holmgren Reacts to Bill Leavy Super Bowl XL Admission

Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren shared his thoughts on Super Bowl XL referee Bill Leavy's admission over the weekend that he made mistakes on a couple of crucial calls that went against the Seattle Seahawks, who Holmgren coached at the time.

Via James Walker of ESPN.com:

"Of course I was disappointed at the time, and because it was the Super Bowl, I still think about it on occasion," Holmgren said. "But like anything in this business, if you let it linger it's going to have an adverse effect on what you do moving forward.

"We didn't play our best football that day. Had we played better and coached better, those calls might not have made a difference. Everyone is human and everyone makes mistakes, and you can't hold one person accountable for the final outcome of that game."
