After he left them and took a bunch of people from their organization with him to Seattle, Packer fans still cheered coach Mike Holmgren when he returned last night to Lambeau Field. After he left the field following what had to be the worst night of his professional life - four interceptions, two lost fumbles, six turnovers by himself and seven for the team - those same Packers fans were too numb to boo their quarterback, Brett Favre. But they cheered when backup Matt Hasselback was put in as a mopup replacement.

The SuperSonics will move to Oklahoma City for the 2008-09 season as part of a settlement with the city of Seattle, ending a contentious relationship that resulted in a trial in which the judge was due to issue her ruling yesterday. The settlement calls for Sonics owner Clay Bennett and the Professional Basketball Club LLC to pay up to $75 million to the city in exchange for the immediate termination of the KeyArena lease between the NBA team and the city. The team's name and colors will stay in Seattle.

Seattle pitcher Brett Tomko, who left Friday night's game with stiffness in his right shoulder, will make his next start Saturday in Tampa Bay instead of Wednesday in Baltimore. "We'll give him a little more time," Mariners manager Lou Piniella said before yesterday's game with Tampa Bay. Tomko, who was acquired by Seattle in the trade that sent Ken Griffey Jr. to Cincinnati on Feb. 10, left Friday night's game with the Devil Rays in the fourth inning with the count, 3-1, on John Flaherty.

Much has been made of the prestige and stature in the offing for Philadelphia next summer, when thousands of conventioneers and journalists arrive for the Republican National Convention. It's a notion discussed excitedly by business execs, tourism promoters and politicians, and it's the primary justification for the $35 million the city must raise to host the event. But even as representatives from major news organizations gathered in Philadelphia this week to tour convention facilities, discuss coverage plans, and scout backdrops for their convention broadcasts, events on the other side of the country provided a harsh reminder that - depending on what happens - the publicity for the city won't necessarily be good.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Tim Raines thinks Seattle is a fine city to visit. He just doesn't want to play baseball there. In response to an announcement by owner George Argyros that the Mariners were prepared to make an offer Raines could accept, the free agent told the Montreal newspaper La Presse that he had no interest in playing for the lowly American League West club. Tom Reich, the agent for Raines, said Argyros was "grandstanding" when he said he was ready to offer Raines a two-year contract.

SEATTLE - Russell Wilson threw four touchdown passes to move into second place for touchdown passes by a rookie, and Marshawn Lynch scored twice as Seattle clinched a spot in playoffs spot by routing San Francisco before a rocking audience. Wilson threw TDs to Lynch, Anthony McCoy, and two in the second half to Doug Baldwin to give him 25 for the season, one shy of Peyton Manning's record of 26. Lynch added 111 yards rushing and a 24-yard TD run on Seattle's opening drive that set the tone.

The father of Penn basketball recruit Andrew Coates said yesterday that his son has been accepted at the Wharton School of Business and that the family has sent a deposit to the university, a step that is akin to signing a letter of intent. Coates, a 6-foot-9, 210-pound power forward who averaged 20 points, 10 rebounds and 2 blocked shots last season as a junior at Eastside Catholic in Seattle, turned down a scholarship offer from Northwestern. Though Ivy League schools do not ask recruits to sign national letters of intent, Coates cannot be recruited by any other Ivy League school after his paperwork at Penn is completed.

Winston Moss said he doesn't know Ricky Watters personally, that they aren't old friends who go way back and spend time with each other in the off- season swapping shoptalk. But yesterday afternoon at the Kingdome, the Seattle linebacker got to know the Eagles running back pretty well. "The guy can play, no question about that," Moss said. "But he does some things that hurt him out there. I love to play against guys who slam balls down, run their mouths, and do all that high-stepping and dancing.

In what may turn out to be his most interesting goal-line stand, Brian Bosworth stuck to his guns yesterday and headed further toward a showdown with the men who run the NFL. After being selected by Seattle in the league's supplemental draft, the former Oklahoma linebacker said he would neither play for the Seahawks nor negotiate with the club. What Bosworth vowed to do instead was stick to his plan of playing for only one of four teams - even if that means sitting out the 1987 season and waiting for the 1988 college draft in April.

BYRON MAXWELL sees an environment in Philadelphia like the one he experienced in Seattle, Maxwell said yesterday. He did not seem to be referencing the wet ground or the blustery skies, as Maxwell introduced himself to a new city after signing a contract billed at 6 years and $63 million, with $25 million guaranteed. "It was just an easy match, it was just a perfect fit," Maxwell said. "A lot of the things they're doing here are similar" to Seattle. "It just meshed. " Maxwell referenced the emphasis on "daily habits," Chip Kelly's "win the day" dictum.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Love them or loathe them, the rowdy Seahawks will have first dibs on the NFC title for the foreseeable future. Yes, the Seahawks who started a fight during New England's victory formation at the end of the Super Bowl. Yes, the Seahawks who took two penalties at the game's end, and led the league in penalties this season. Yes, the disrespectful, disrespected Seahawks, whose bunker mentality and persecution complex make them a dangerous cell of football fanatics.

YOU'VE HEARD the term "costly turnover"? For Warriors point guard Steph Curry, it's a reality. According to the San Francisco Chronicle , Curry's mom, Sonya, allows him three turnovers per game.

WHILE REPORTERS were asking Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez yesterday about Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett's saying that Philadelphia police should look into Sanchez "trying to impersonate a good quarterback," after Sunday's game, a jersey sat draped over a box in the overflow from LeSean McCoy's NovaCare locker stall. It was Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman's white No. 25, and across the blue numeral 5, Sherman had scrawled a message in silver Sharpie, congratulating McCoy for becoming the franchise's all-time leading rusher.

THE EAGLES are still in pretty good shape to win the NFC East, after yesterday's 24-14 but-not-really-that-close loss to Seattle. Feel free to wonder, though, what the point would be of getting to the postseason, given the way this team has played against the league's best. One-hundred-thirty-nine total yards yesterday, the least the Eagles have managed since Chip Kelly arrived, the least a Kelly-head-coached team has ever amassed, college or pro. If this is how your offense looks against a top defense, in December, in your stadium, where you hadn't lost since last season's playoffs, well, an Eagles trip to Seattle or Green Bay at any point in January is going to be a big boost only to the airline industry.

THE EAGLES' crushing victory over Dallas left us Birds fans giddy with visions of the Super Bowl dancing in our heads. It made for an incredibly fun Thanksgiving weekend. But, as usual, our pessimistic side has crept back in. People have been stopping me on the street (under the misguided view that I know what I'm talking about) and asking, will we get home field advantage? Will we win the division? Are we certain to make the playoffs? WHAT'S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN? That phrase made me think back to my days as a law student, when I lived alone in an attic apartment on 22nd Street and a hit song of that era was, "Worst That Could Happen.

THE PICK This will be the Eagles' biggest win of the season, if they can pull it off, and I think they can. Seattle, after scuffling a little there for a while, is healthier now, and back to being really, really good. But the Seahawks are 3-3 on the road, 2-2 outside their time zone. And as good as Marshawn Lynch is, the run is what the Eagles' defense does best. Even without DeMeco Ryans, they would much rather you run at them than go deep against Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams all day. I'll be surprised if Seattle churns out a whole bunch of points.

Chip Kelly and Pete Carroll may not seem much alike on the surface. Kelly has an East Coast edge. Carroll is California cool. Kelly is offensive minded. Carroll has 40 years of experience as a defensive coach. But they do share one coaching trait - aside from being successful at the highest levels of football - and that is having a core philosophy, making it work, and maintaining belief even when things fall apart. Carroll believes in playing an attacking brand of defense and has since the 1970s when he worked under Monte Kiffin at Arkansas.

Chip Kelly visited the Seattle Seahawks' practice facility in November 2010. Oregon had a bye week and Kelly liked to spend that time seeing how other teams practiced. Pete Carroll was in his first season coaching the Seahawks after leaving Southern Cal, so Kelly dropped in on his former Pac-10 rival. "I've got a tremendous amount of respect for him," Kelly said. "I visited the 49ers after that. I visited Air Force. Whenever we had an open date during the season at Oregon, when we weren't practicing, I tried to go visit somebody that was close.
