Former Coach Disagrees with Former Kicker’s Assessment
Jim Mora, former head coach of the New Orleans Saints, recently voiced his disagreement with Morten Andersen’s comments about the team’s performance. Andersen, a former kicker for the Saints, expressed his frustrations with the team on social media after their latest loss. However, Mora quickly dismissed Andersen’s opinions, questioning his football credentials and current residence.
Saints Fans Deserve Better?
During an appearance on a postgame show, Mora was asked if he agreed with Andersen’s suggestion that Saints fans deserve better than what they saw in the recent game. Mora firmly disagreed, emphasizing that the players and coaches give their all on the field. He also pointed out that despite their current record of 7-8, the Saints still have a chance to make the playoffs.
Questioning Andersen’s Expertise
Mora didn’t hold back when questioning Andersen’s qualifications to comment on the team. He highlighted that Andersen currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia, and criticized his understanding of the offense and defense. Mora argued that it has been 20 years since Andersen played for the Saints and that his opinions should not carry much weight. He firmly stated that he does not believe in Andersen’s ability to evaluate the team’s performance.
Mora’s Credentials and Final Thoughts
Mora, who ended his NFL coaching career in 2001, had success during his time with the Saints. While he disagreed with Andersen, he did credit the former kicker as a great player. However, Mora’s frustration with Andersen’s comments was clear throughout the interview.
As the Saints continue their season, it remains to be seen how they will perform and if they can secure a playoff spot. The opinions of former players and coaches, like Andersen and Mora, may differ, but ultimately it is up to the team to prove their worth on the field.
