Here's a brain twister....

Re: Here's a brain twister....

You must be high bro. Seriously. You don't think, that with the Leaf controversy involved, that Mora's input on Manning didn't have ANYTHING to do with that decision? He only watched this kid grow up as a football player, right in front of his own eyes.

Jim Mora Jr. was on staff with Mora when all this was going on, and he said today on NFL Network, that he used to tell the press, during those training camps, that Peyton had a stronger arm, than any of their QBs at the time.

You have to admit, that's one hell of a coincidence, that Mora just happened to be the coach, when that QB decision was made.

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

I agree with TR...although I am high right now. Must be something to it.

The Saints must've had about 32 coaches and 32 GM's on their payroll back when Peyton was working out at the Saints' facility, because there wasn't one team in that draft that wouldn't have taken Peyton first.

I agree that it is ironic that Mora was in Indy when Peyton became availabe in the draft and it was ironic that they just happened to have the #1 pick, but I think they would have picked Peyton even if Mutt was GM and Jeff was head coach.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Welcome to the forum, Tjay1.

I like Mora. He was a good coach. I'll always remember him for his post game rants though! Those were the best!

Re: Here's a brain twister....

Coach Mora was on the phone with NFL Network today, and Jim Jr. said that one of his biggest pet peeves, was not being remembered for bringing two franchises up from the ashes, but being remembered for his post game rants... Only one person to blame for that really.... I like Jim though. Drove me crazy at times back then, but water under the bridge now.

Yes...those were good days, indeed...even though we never broke through, I wouldn't trade those for nothing. Dude had a temper.

It's early, and I'm bored again...so...keeping in mind that I'm an Ole Miss fan and was a Fourcade fan...

I remember back during the days when they had the strike, and then Fourcade entered the scene, then Fourcade stuck with the team, then Fourcade beat Hebert out for the starting job, then Hebert left for Atlanta leaving us only with Fourcade, then we went out and mortgaged the farm for Steve Walsh, then Mora removed Fourcade as starter and inserted Walsh, and then I called his weekly show and asked him this...

Me: "Coach Mora, I have a few questions if you don't mind?"
Coach: "OK."
Me: "Who has the better arm between Fourcade and Walsh?"
Coach: "Blah, blah, blah....Fourcade."
Me: "Who is the more mobile QB of the two?"
Coach: "Blah, blah, blah...Fourcade."
Me: "Who presently knows our system better of the two."
Coach: "Blah, blah, blah...Fourcade."
Me: "Then why in the hell are you playing Walsh right now?"
Coach: "You $%$#$%^%$. You don't know &*%$ about %$&^$ and you %$^&4# come here and &&^%%$& tell me this Y&^%^&?"

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

Re: Here's a brain twister....

Odd bit of trivia for you, completely off the posted topic, but related to what Saint_LB was saying.

Hebert & Fourcade were the opposing quarterbacks in the 1976/77 school year Louisiana High School Football Championship game. Hebert for South Lafourche, and Fourcade for Archbishop Shaw. South won the game, taking their second (and last!) State Title.

That is good! And I was a Fourcade fan too.
