Former Bears tight end Desmond Clark shares his thoughts on Mike Martz and the Bears offensive issues on CTL - 9/22
I got I think Mike Martz is that they're gone okay no they everybody's screaming about balance. The way -- Green -- might be through the air is that possible. I think what he's gonna do it is not about so much about balance is about when -- when involvement and when the ball then against Green Bay. You have to throw the ball he'll pull the ball. But this might not be the right game for everybody isn't rules -- down all the fans. To say okay we need to be balanced because like you say they get they've given up a hundred yards past and so why not go out and attack them and have because that's what have been vulnerable are. Well all of the first two games of the season. Extend and -- there we -- surprise. When you look at Jay Cutler. He takes an unfair beating from the media tons of the other day were watching the game in their -- headlines on the screen and try to win -- those are real headlines from this area newspapers after the NFC title game. And then the Tribune doesn't investigation most headlines ever ran was serious none of them. Who Cutler not a leader Cutler highest. And then if they are just the conspiracy like the guy that they showed Jay sitting all the way down at the -- and He had Troy Aikman goes. Joseph why did the same thing when I wanted to get away and they can be able to see the play but it's another agenda just -- What awful ballplayers -- USC defense you see our lack of doing that. When Dolphins on fill him in May want to of the -- at the far in the -- get a better view that's what abysmal. Seems like they have an agenda they hate Jay Wright and they are all of those Peyton Manning they'd show him look at the pictures with someone. But it really doesn't say -- they may never sort never they never -- -- I don't know woods pissed off bush and it's not that good stuff from home course and had a bit of relief when you -- do you blame him an offer be it as a Griese was about didn't hit so many times like. They're having this debate today on the radio and yet here's some of these so headlines and a absurd that's those are not there fonts I mean come out there right at the do you blame him at all for you know for aired it out with a QB coach and for being ticked off. You know it's sore than the pride do you leader but to CF to try to turnaround and be encouraging her we're. What do you think -- -- -- how much -- elect is -- you've got to hit them and sounds. How would you -- there and and the thing about it is you you don't get upset would say for showing his emotion. If He -- took us out on and its -- almost and then a bigger problem there too a light day because he's always Wie is He he's never talk to be anybody different and He wears his emotions on his least slow him one back in in Dillon had the our quarterback coach that's fine you know along loses it it is in the right context and it didn't seem like a quarterback coach had a problem when it. So it is all good I mean I've been on -- some money go to my coat and it wasn't a bad young and think is right you know. I'm hoping He I'll probably give me the ball you know Omar -- waddle who KKR call a play -- that they can -- missile -- athlete you don't know that the conversation that they may have been have. There's there's so many different kinds of leaders you do it quiet types are the guys that are -- raw -- are the guys you just follow you know how I play. Where would you put. What is his style in terms of getting the offense together and getting them going. Usually when he's trying to get everybody on is little bits and pieces here and there he's not -- guy he's not gonna get up and make a speech to get everybody going their way he's kind of got that. He's gonna. Knowing -- may be wrong bay hit comes to you and say all right this is what we need to do is not a guy get the whole offense together and the big task beats. But then again he's a guy that He wants to lead by example. You know -- his toughness all his grit. Through his emotion. If you He doesn't want one and not play football and know how to. You know protect his name. Do like I do and so I believe he's that type of guy what do you expect out of its Green Bay game because we she Green -- struggled to score it's -- -- defense. But this is a different Green Bay came they're healthier and great quarterback. They do but. This is their team knows how to play -- play against that Green Bay offense. You know it has been sometimes in the present agreement might -- -- they've been an NFC championship game. Kobe is gonna have like 273 yards in the first half against us it's also moves they make Cubs thought He began within reach but second half. Nothing just like an NFC champs have gained nothing and -- second half so -- knows how to play against his defense I would suspect that. Our defense is not play well against Green Bay's offense I think the game's not come down to how all our office plays against their defense. And does Lovie go into a game like this and tell marks. There has to be certain percentage of runs or. Is it still a go into the game and it's it's totally up to marketed to until March in terms of what He calls are sometimes I think -- -- to -- Say well must have to do. This amount of plays or. This morals in this. Because the game dictates that now sand that -- play in the game that's we've dictated that hit the ball forty times. But you -- once again say okay you gotta run the ball 3035 times because. Would have the runs you stop in and you didn't big chunks of yards in the passing game so you have I'd do about. How you wanna attack you want to attack it. Run the ball but it is -- -- little -- number of substance I think they come and -- the coast from this freedom to fill to have feel for the game. It seemed like the Saints most of their pressure came off of -- a lot of blitzes I would imagine the Packers are going to blitz a lot. Any concern because that just seems like it's more blitz pick up anything but the facts are that tight -- they didn't really be focused on that. Maybe more so than me up -- -- -- there is that the main concern is getting those other guys that to be able to recognize and and get their assignments. I think saw and this is that. Whole office of -- -- that's the problem is is not realize is not a runner president -- is just not a receiver and I tell you we all as a unit have to pick -- these -- But when you when you seen them didn't come -- dig in here it was mostly. All of -- little -- the first week also so it's something that they got to be able pick up. Make quick decisions and get big chunks of August to back of that Green Bay offense so they say -- -- You know too much -- is this kind of backed off little bit and more conservative defense tell us about your charity that you got somebody who are attending events. Just -- very committed to charities I am mom. I was just -- someone today. But I'm not playing football this is what I do. On my anyways youth organization is is a part of me in this moment in two. Movement to but we do have a charity event tomorrow night that very far but thanks to fifteen or Clinton. Then you give me in the Boston. I was delighted to have this partners who drink and then we can -- -- work with our own during -- radiate. With Ellis well you have to do that if -- out -- -- TV you want adults to show them very fired a lot of kids and so on and -- did narrowly because the ball's going to be Patten on Sweden. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And this is my second home so I brought this program from my home -- my second home. And I think it -- do good things okay congratulations appreciate their young Dez Clark.
