More Mora

I absolutely hate those coach-press conference beer commercials. Just the thought that someone would think that is how a press conference is, just is repulsive to me.

However, I can't get enough of Jim Mora.

"Play-offs? Play-offs?''

My favorite Mora memory comes from his time with the Saints. It was a particularly bad day at training camp in Wisconsin. The Saints were scrimmaging the Chiefs. After it was over Mora met with the media.

A New Orleans TV reporter was looking for something positive. So he asks Mora, "Coach, how about Tommy Stowers today?

And Mora looks at the guy and says, "Stowers? Stowers? Let me tell you about Stowers. He was cut by the Kansas City Chiefs. And today he was the best player on the field for the Saints. What does that tell you?''

It was classic.

Mora doesn't get the love and respect from either the Colts or Saints fan base. But the man could flat out coach football.
