  • Mora's Falcons Hungry For New Beginning

    The best offense is made up of a complementing defense, something the Atlanta Falcons lacked last year. Coming off a playoff from two years before versus Green Bay, the Falcons management retooled. The acquisition of Jim Mora Jr. and Rich McKay was a bold move.
    Arthur Blank is a serious businessman and in the NFL knowone wants to be another Bill Bidwell especially in Atlanta where sports teams are mediocre besides the Braves. And even they disappoint in the playoffs.
    With a healthy Mike Vick in the lineup and a new west coast approach and Mora 's knowledge of the NFC. It will be a good season in a tough division.
    With the addition of an arsenal consisting of Peerless Price,Dez White, Brian Finneran, and rookie Michael Jenkins, the birds are set for flight under Greg Knapp. The only concerns is how well the defensive front can hold opponents in the red zone.And that task was assigned to Ed Donatell to fix last years breakdowns.
    So the Atlanta Falcons will only soar if and when all the pieces come together. And Mora thought Terrell Owens was a big headache. Falcons season record should be 8-8 and a playoff hope.

    Re: Mora's Falcons Hungry For New Beginning

    I like the read, but the latter part of the article about Mora and TO from all I've heard is untrue. Mora and TO never had problems w/ each other, during the 2002 season when the Niners loss just about every single player in the secondary to injury, TO even came up to Mora asking if he could play S if need be. Mora and TO never really had problems (or Knapp beyond that tirade last season), Owens problem was with upper management.

      Hi Daredevil25,
      Thanks for the kind words on the article. But the truth of the matter was that Terrell Owens was all about me me me and not enough about the whole team concept.
      Sources around the Bay Area have confirmed since his departure to the City of Brotherly Love that his disdain was not only with upper management but at times with the actual coaches who wanted to involve other prospects to defy the defensive schemes designed for Terrell Owens.
      But not knowing Owens personally all i can say is that the ***** are better off this season. And as for him still bitter. He recently made comments to the effect that if had been with a QB like McNabb all along he would have had a Championship by now. He basically was poking at the ***** and espcially Jeff Garcia.

        Agreed, TO is taking every stab at Jeff that he can. Honestly its just silly IMO, his #'s were great w/ Garcia and he acts like Garcia wronged him or something. The only part I agree w/ him is that had he played w/ Steve Young, his #'s would more than likely be higher. He's in Philly now though, and "for his sake" his past traits of playing down against good competition.

          Now they beat the lowly niner's whom we should kill(come on Marc ,spice it up!) they are hungry for what.......cheese puffs? The Falcons should be a gimme , providing we cut out the T/O's in the red zone. IF the Falcon's are hungry, better eat some alka setzer now for that ****ty feeling they are gonna get in their gut's after this loss!!!!!!!

                Not to talk smack, but you've got some crow to eat. This is why I don't talk a lot of smack when I go to opposing team's boards.

                  Mora Fired from Falcons...

                  Mora fired as Falcons coach Click here to find out more!
                  NFL.com wire reports


                  FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (Jan. 1, 2007) -- Atlanta fired coach Jim Mora on Monday, just two years after he led the Falcons to the NFC Championship Game.

                  The decision to dump the fiery coach followed two straight disappointing seasons. The Falcons lost six of their final eight games in 2005 to miss the playoffs, and they finished 7-9 this season by losing seven of the last nine contests.

                  Owner Arthur Blank made the announcement at the team's suburban training complex.

                  Atlanta went into the final weekend with a slim chance to slip into the playoffs with a .500 record. That ended Saturday night when the New York Giants won at Washington; the Falcons closed the season Sunday with a meaningless 24-17 loss at Philadelphia.

                  Mora's final game was in the same stadium where the Falcons lost to the Eagles for the NFC championship at the end of the 2004 season, coming up one victory short of the Super Bowl.

                  The 45-year-old Mora, son of longtime NFL coach Jim Mora, went 26-22 in three seasons as Atlanta's coach.

                  A former defensive coordinator in San Francisco, the younger Mora led the Falcons to the NFC South title in his rookie season. The team slumped to 8-8 a year ago, then endured his first losing record.

                  "This was an extremely difficult decision for us," Blank said in a statement before holding a news conference to announce the decision. "We had the highest hopes and aspirations for a long run with Jim as our coach, but we feel this decision is in the best long-term interests of our franchise. I have great respect for Jim's passion for the game, and we wish Jim and his family all of the best."

                  Mora had two years left on his contract, which was extended before this season. He could not immediately be reached for comment; a message was left on his cell phone.

                  Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports Atlanta Falcons head coach Jim Mora might get fired after the 2006 season if his team fails to make the postseason. Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt would be a top candidate to replace him.

                  Rams Upcoming Opponent: Playoff Bound Atlanta Falcons Baby!!
                  by Guest
                  My Atlanta Falcons are going to the playoffs! Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus!

                  Hopefully you guys can turn around your team in short order as well. Here is your recipe:


                  1) Hire Scott Pioli and pay him whatever it takes (the "Patriot Way" worked wonders in the A-T-L with Thomas Dimitroff)

                  2) Hire a great coach (Spagnuolo, Schwartz or maybe Josh Johnson the OC of the Pats.

                  3) Sign free agent QB Matt Cassel to come in an anchor the offense.

                  4) Draft an offensive lineman....

                  Watch the turnaround and

                  The Falcons will be featured on HBO's Hard Knocks this summer.
                  The Falcons could have declined participation because they made the playoffs two years ago. Instead, they chose to volunteer. Hopefully, we'll get a glimpse into Julio Jones' rehab off another right foot surgery and rookie RB Devonta Freeman's progress. The show premiers Aug. 5.
