    Which reporter asked the question that led to Mora's famous rant?

    I believe it was the heavy set guy with the Coors Light.

    IIRC, Dave Calabro, a local TV guy, asked the "playoffs" question.

    The beginning of the presser (Mora's opening statement) was a thing of beauty, too, that gets overshadowed. It had such gems as "five interceptions for a touchdown? That's got to be some kind of record" about 3x, about 10 "we sucked"s and the classic "we didn't do diddly-poo" line.

    I finally figured out what IIRC means. It only took me five months. Nice.

    Those are classic meltdowns. Mike Ditka had the good one too.

    "Mike why are you in such a bad mood?"
    "What do you care?"

    I'm glad to hear that since Calabro would ask the most fawning of questions.

    Not to pick nits, but I'm pretty sure the diddly-poo line was part of a completely different rant from when he was in New Orleans.

    It was.

    It was. The Panthers absolutely ran over the Saints in a game in Charlotte in '96, which prompted diddly-poo and a couple of horsesh_ts.

    Mora resigned a few days after the disaster in Charlotte.

    I was about to say, that would have been the best press conference ever.

    sort of a threadjack but why did espn.com's headline say "mora lands on his feet as seahawks DBs coach" yesterday? "lands on his feet"? i know he got fired but i'm guessing not a single person was worried that he wouldn't "land on his feet."
