Jim Mora – Playoffs!

Football News

On November 25, 2001 Jim Mora gave one of the best post game press conference speeches the NFL has ever seen after his Indianapolis Colts lost to the San Francisco 49ers dropping their record to 4-6.

Mora was quick to blame the offense – which included Peyton Manning. The offense commited five turnovers, four interceptions, one of which was returned all the way for a TD and the other three leaving the 49ers in excellent field position to score again.

He even went as far to say that they couldn’t have beaten a high school on the day.

It got fun when a reporter asked Mora if he thought the Colts could reach the playoffs:

“What’s that? Ah — Playoffs? Don’t talk about — playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game! Another game.”

What great belief Jim had in his side. Well maybe he was right to, as the Colts did indeed fail to make the playoffs. At least they won a couple more games though.

Let's hope Manning puts in a better performance come Super Bowl time than his four interception display that led to this rant.
