“You need to win the game! You don’t play to just play it,” was an infamous “Hermism” made by then-New York Jets coach Herman Edwards after a Jets loss to the Cleveland Browns left the team 2–5 in the ’02-’03 football season. San Francisco 49ers Jim Harbaugh lost it after a bad call. Quarterback Derek Anderson didn’t think it was funny he lost either and told reporters. Former 49ers coach Mike Singletary went off on needing more winners, but retired NFL coach Jim Mora was probably the most notorious ranter of them all.
“Playoffs? Don’t talk about playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game,” Mora told reporters. That rant was even used in a Coors Light commercial.
