The kicker to Seattle's loss

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Jim Mora on the two field-goal attempts Olindo Mare missed in Sunday's game.

"No excuses for those," Mora said. "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, it doesn't matter. You've got to make those kicks, especially in a game like this where you're kicking, scratching and fighting, playing your tail off and you miss those kicks, not acceptable. Not acceptable. Absolutely not acceptable."

So, coach Mora, can you tell us how you really feel about the kicking situation? Mora was asked if the team will consider a change at that position.

"We'll look at changes everywhere," Mora said. "We're not going to fight our [behind] and have a field-goal kicker miss two field goals. It's not going to happen."

Here's Mare's quote on missing the two kicks.

"I blame myself for that," he said. "I feel bad for the all the guys in here who worked so hard all week , and to let it come down to one guy to screw it up for everybody. It's a tough pill to swallow, but I'll be back, you know."
