3. Final Words

How can we forget former head coach Jim Mora? Like the two coaches mentioned previously, he became a great sound bite and became great commercial material. Of all of Mora’s rants, this and his time Indianapolis stick out as memorable to fans.

His New Orleans Saints just loss a game to the San Francisco 49ers, 24-22. After, he launched into a presser nicknamed the “Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda” rant. His team was 3-3 at the time.

His rant must have done something because the Saints rallied around his outburst to rattle off nine straight wins, finishing the 1987 regular season 12-3. Unfortunately, they loss to the Minnesota Vikings by a landslide, 44-10.

To top it off, Mora received NFL Coach of the Year.

Go figure!
