Mora Takes Up For Himself

Embattled Atlanta Falcons Coach Jim Mora defended himself today.

"I'm proud of this football team," Mora said during a news conference. "Our football team did some things that are overlooked when you lose a football game. We've won the most games in the NFC South for three years. We've got the fourth-most wins in the NFC over the last three years. We've played in the NFC championship game. We've won the NFC South. We've been in the hunt through 15 weeks last year and we're still in the hunt through the last week this year."

Mora apparently could be fired by Falcons owner Arthur Blank if the club, which is 7-8 entering Sunday's regular season finale at Philadelphia, misses the playoffs. Mora angered Blank with his recent radio comments that he would leave the Falcons immediately if the coaching job at the University of Washington, his alma mater, became available.

If what you're saying is true, Mora better be looking.

To be fair to Mora though, he is cursed with a QB who sells merchandise, but isn't very good as a QB.

I have this mental picture of Mora with a millstone around his neck called "Vick".
