Former Atlanta Falcons head coach Jim Mora said he has left an imprint on the city of Atlanta and as a result, he has been able to recruit many top players from the state of Georgia. Mora currently serves as head coach of UCLA. Mora also took a shot at the Falcons for their lack of playoff success. "The bottom line is this: The last time the Falcons won a playoff game, I was the head coach," Mora said. "Kids remember that game, the 47-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams (in the 2004 divisional playoffs). A lot of kids around Atlanta, the state of Georgia and the Southeast follow the Falcons. They know that was the last time that the Falcons have won a playoff game ... For all the success that the Falcons have had since we left, they still haven't won a playoff game - and that resonates with people."

I guess you've got to watch what you say to anybody anymore. I'm doing an interview with my best friend, joking around, and all of a sudden it's a big story.
