Are Mangini and Holmgren really opposites?

I've been reading a lot lately about how many seem to think that Holmgren will want to dump Mangini because they have different philosophies.  Mangini is a defensive mind.  Holmgren is a west coast offense guy.  Okay got it.  Just not sure how those two conflict since they occur on opposite sides of the ball.  This seems like a false comparison.

So we should be comparing, perhaps, their offensive visions.  I recall a lot of folks in the off season predicting that Quinn would be the starting quarterback because he was better suited to the west coast style of passing game that Mangini would want to use in his offense.  

Specialized terminology is not my strong suite, so perhaps you can understand my confusion.  If Mangini likes a west coast style passing game in his ball control offense and Holmgren is a west coast offense kind of guy, then where is the problem?  Does a true west coast game say "Screw you" to the running game to the point that the Mangini style and the Holmgren style just don't mix?

I eagerly await the input from those with a better grasp of the concepts than myself.
