Mora controversy in Atlanta

Atlanta Falcons head coach Jim Mora said today he was kidding. We at The Four-Seamer don't buy it.

Mora went on a Seattle sports radio show Thursday and sprouted his passion for coaching the University of Washington Huskies football team, despite his team being in the thick of the playoff race in the NFC.

In fact, he went on to say he would leave the team in the midst of a race to join the Huskies staff.
Mora's claim that the comments were made tongue in cheek seems far-fetched. If he was being fictitious, he might want to consider a future career in acting, because nothing sounds that dead-pan serious that was meant to be a joke.

Regardless, we felt Mora's job was in trouble headed into the season. This incident, combined with what might very well be the second straight year that a team with a surplus of talent has missed the playoffs and Mora's own father saying phenom Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was a coach killer, should mean Mora will be looking for a new job come January.

Based on his more-than-hinting comments about Washington, we would argue Mora already has a pretty good impression of his fate.
