the reality is Caroll did put the Patriots in the playoffs 2 years in a row. That is a lot better than erikkson, nolan, and Sing have done for us. Carroll is an upgrade over Mora. Mora was bad. I think in a couple years the Seahawks will be much improved. It wil be interesting to see who he puts on his staff. Also Carroll was the DC for our Niners and is a SF born guy so don't hate on him too hard OK. Believe me I despise USC so I dont really like Carroll, but I do respect him.
Mora was bad?
I don't think so. He had his guys fired up to play.
The problem is that Willis took Hasselback out and with the extended play that Wallace had seen the years prior he wasn't as big a question mark as he was then. You knew if Hass was out you have to expect QB options more. They were solid running screen Passes as well.
The problem was they were just injured throughout most of the season.
Then on top of that they fired their GM. Effectively throwing in the towel on the season. But Mora had his guys fired up game in and game out.
Allen knew he was going after Carroll and it effectively made Mora a lame duck Head Coach.
Yeah they beat us because the Refs need seeing eye dogs to find the field, but Shattle wasn't exactly laying down for us either. Mora did everything a HC without a say in personnel can do.
So we can dispense with the Mora sucks references can we not?
