I thought I'd start a new post for you guys to vent, analyze or rant about the game, while we get to writing. Remember keep it clean.
Head coach Jim Mora, who was in a fairly foul mood, basically called out Olindo Mare for missing those two kicks.
“There’s no excuses for those. If you’re a kicker in the National Football League you should make those kicks – bottom line. End of story. Period. No excuses. No wind, doesn’t matter. You’ve gotta makes those kicks.
The more he spoke the madder he seemed to get.

“Especially in a game like this, where you’re kicking and fighting and scratching your tail off and you miss those kicks, it’s not acceptable. Not acceptable. Absolutely not acceptable.
When asked if he would consider making a change at kicker, Mora said the team will look at making changes everywhere on the team.
“We’re not going to fight our ass off, and have a field goal kicker go out there and miss two field goals and lose a game. It’s not going to happen.”
That's not calling a guy out, that's pushing him in front of a bus.
Mare also called himself out as well, “Yeah they were just bad kicks,” he said. “Just two bad kicks and it kind of cost us the game.”
“You’re only supposed to do your job and I didn’t do it very well,” he said.
