Obviously, head coach Jim Mora knew he was going to be asked about the much-talked about and debated segment on KJR yesterday with receivers Deion Branch, TJ Houshmandzadeh and Nate Burleson.
Not surprisingly, he hadn’t listened to the segment, but knew the gist of it.
“I didn’t hear a word that was said,” Mora said. “I’m sure it was good radio though. I’m sure it boosted rating. I don’t know if my man Hugh (Millen) liked it a whole lot, when they threw out his career stats. I’m sure it was good radio.”
Mora was asked earlier in the press conference about Houshmandzadeh’s comments which implied some frustration level with offensive coordinator Greg Knapp, and if he believed the players had a trust in what Knapp is doing and the plays he’s calling.
“I would hope so,” he said. “I think it takes time to build that and success certainly helps. We’ve struggled to have consistency for a number of reasons. That’s an honest question.”
It’s an honest question that apparently Mora is distancing himself from answering. And he certainly didn’t go out of his way to back or even offer some endorsement of Knapp.
And if anybody doesn’t think that Housh wasn’t implying criticism about Knapp when he said:
‘When you bring guys together, No. 1, you have to trust the people that are making decisions,” T.J. Houshmandzadeh said. “You’ve go to trust the people that are calling plays. You’ve got to trust everything that’s going on in order for things to work.
“If that trust is not there, you’re always going to second guess things.”
