Mora Reportedly Leaves Radio Job In Wake of Vick Comment

Former NFL coach Jim Mora left a radio job with Fox Sports because of his recent comments regarding Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Mora agreed with a host's comment that Vick is a "coach killer" because of his erratic passing. The Falcons are coached by Mora's son, also named Jim Mora.

A shame. I have always liked Coach Mora and he was a fine commentator on FSN.

And Vick is the most overrrated player in the NFL. Pretty pathetic when you are the 29th rated passer (as he was last year) and still can make the Pro Bowl.

If the Falcons were smart, they would trade him and start Matt Schwab. He is the best backup QB in the game now. Sort of like Danny White was with the Cowpokes when he was backing up Roger the Dodger.

I refuse to believe that Mora, Sr., left the gig because of his comments. Outside of Atlanta, the comments were ignored, and in Atlanta, they were pretty much accepted as boilerplate sportstalk radio gunk. I assume he left because (i) he didn't like the job, (ii) he wasn't being paid enough, or (iii) he wanted to spend more time with his family.
