Skip to comments.No Mora: The Case for Firing the Seahawks' First-Year Coach
Posted on 12/28/2009 12:08:11 PM PST by pissant
All season long, prudent Seahawk observers have resisted the urge to call for Jim Mora's head. The Seahawks weren't a good team last year under Mike Holmgren, and his are big shoes to fill. Furthermore, team management didn't do anything to address its malnourished running game in the off-season, and the Hawks have been at least as injury-plagued as last year.
Then again, quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has been largely healthy this season, and the receiving corps not nearly as depleted as when Holmgren's team essentially held open tryouts to get enough healthy sets of hands in uniform. And, most importantly, Holmgren's Hawks never quit on him like they have on Mora in the last three games.
Nobody expected Mora's Hawks to storm into Green Bay in what was a playoff-clinching game for the Packers and actually come away with a victory. But after consecutive blowout losses to Houston (34-7) and, most embarrassingly, Tampa Bay at Qwest (24-7), Seahawk fans could have been forgiven for expecting better than a 48-10 drubbing at the hands of the Pack.
All told, the Seahawks have been outscored 106-24 by three teams with a combined record of 15-24 heading into each game. And while Hasselbeck might just rate as the best signal-caller to ever don the blue and green beak, he's been nothing short of awful of late, throwing four interceptions apiece against the Bucs and Packers.

The sooner the better. We had him for three years in Atlanta and he coddles his players and has no clue how to lead a team.
Some would say, he gave the world Michael Vick and his rubbish after many warning signs which were ignored or brushed under the carpet in Flowery Branch...
The best thing about him is his “smoking hot wife” who is involved with many charitable causes even still here in Atlanta
Jim Mora -— the only guy who could make Dennis Erokson look good. He can’t plan his way out of a paper bag. No talent, no time management skills, lousy decision maker.
The 2nd best thing about him is his father’s classic “Playoffs?!” line.
She’s cute with a well fed healthy look
The more I see of Mora, the less I see of a man, or a NFL caliber coach. He is terrible, and his record in Atlanta and Seattle prove it. He is riding on his daddy’s coattails and isn’t up to snuff.
