It's funny how the different interviewers try to get Jim to say "IT", just now while watching NFL network Rich Eisen tried by asking him about some player that was injured but might be able to come back for the ............Then Mora jumped in and said he wasn't going to say "IT" and not to even try to get him to. It was funny and I have heard that happen on Sirius NFL radio also.

that will always make me smile

Its such a contrast to what coaches say today in pressers. He was never scared to outright say a part of his team sucked.

I agree although part of me wishes that Mora would have been more critical of the anemic Carl Smith led offense that pulled us down year after year.

In my opinion, Mora should be on the NFL gameday set in place of Mooch.

Have the Saints ever considered putting him into the Ring of Fame at the dome (or is that the dome that actually does that)? I would think that he'd be a perfect candidate.. he's the one who finally turned the whole losing attitude into a winning one. As bad as some of the teams have been since he left, there have never been teams as bad as the ones in the 70's and early 80's.

LOL I've been trying to find the "You think you know, but you really...don't...know..." sound byte, too. The meltdown clip after the Carolina game when he quit is the best out of all available. :hihi:

Yea, that was a great one. Is there even a transcript of it?

"you think you know, but you don't." You don't know and you never will."

When things build up over time, sooner or later the levee breaks.

Can't fault a man for that, dude. Great to see his emotions in that segment. Knowing what he stood for over the years, most of us know that Mora isn't a "woos." Can't say the same for his son, though. They're not cut from the same cloth. :eek:

I was mad at Mora for leaving the Saints like he did. But as the years went by, in looking back, ...I'm glad Benson put Mora Sr. in the Saints HOF. :cool:

:gosaints:

And for the record I loved the fact that Mora wore his emotions on his sleeve. After games the man had no filter between what his heart felt and his mouth said. I prefer that over the cliché filled sound bites and the “you don’t deserve to share the same air I breathe” arrogance (I’m looking at you Belichick and Parcells) that many coaches exude after games.

Post game clips of Green (“They are who we thought they were!”), Edwards (“Hello? You play to win the game!”) and Gundy (“I’m a man! I’m 40!”) are memorable because a) they’re hilarious, and b) they’re “real.”
