Fri, 10 Aug 2012|
Chicago Bears' Insider John "Moon" Mullin sat down with the CTL crew to discuss the Bears' shaky offensive line - 8/10
Brandon -- going to be a really good player out -- Jeffrey shows he's got the ability shield himself at that big body up. Make some plays I think Jason Campbell's a solid. Back up type quarterback way better what he had a year ago. Especially when I watch Caleb runner and a Bronco you're thankful he's awful and the offensive line. I know it's one game. It doesn't look good no idea and I think there's no way to disguise it. Privately or or publicly there's nothing to feel real good about it and it's it's there's possession of the some of the things you mentioned Jason Campbell well. One negative to me last night was. The fact that he wasn't very good Michael Bush what is something that didn't offseason -- was go out and get guys like Campbell bush. For Charlotte guard to get a bunch of guys who have been starters somewhere else Kelvin Hayden -- they should have been a lot better. You know that that should have shouldn't have been that bad with the backups but they're still. I kept thinking I've -- wrote the -- to -- and try to -- Can imagine what would have happened if Ryan Clady of them playing into the fourth quarter against Bears backups jamarcus refuge. -- is still out on the field children's project that he got big Mike Tyson is running yesterday's wow yeah. He should have been clearing out people and send troops -- -- did not play well. Got to get better because of all the good things that. Can't talk about last night Marshall and -- not. They're all things to be negated by the fact that this offensive line can't block yet and I can hit the ball those cats. Most putt and this is a huge concern evident that a concern for the last couple years Republican breaking news here and -- going to a single when let's be honest and I accept -- -- at Marshall or you know whatever. But -- if you look back to Lester -- without Cutler without Forte. You know it wasn't. This wasn't the varsity last night they still should have dominated the lowest scorers they didn't know it's a proud that they may -- had a better guard like a David to Castro from the it happened. By the way let's take a look at who they're David list for today because it plays right into our discussion. Today's daily -- these are the starting left tackle for the Bears if you go back the last handful of years. This week and one into the week one starters. It's kind of different guy every year I got there I mean. It's really hard to have continuity of your offensive line when the most important marquee position. Is different every year. It's not the first time. They have problems and -- retirement with a supply just like Jim Colbert was once upon a time don't you think you got your ankle problems and just from retired. -- still trying to find him Orlando Pace was ups it was a band that didn't work Chris Williams hasn't worked as the best drafters John -- didn't. Have a siren call huge injury issues at least right at the time -- he decided tackles and -- he was it was worsened and he played through it. -- in Europe as I do you know it was hard to watch what so. I'm wondering I mean how many plays is Mike Tyson I'm gonna have to structure with an extra time and use of the H back more I mean just just people that are gonna. Be able to put Adam had him and give Cutler a little more time and plus if they don't have problems elsewhere and I and a solid. CSN Chicago dot com and I've talked to Von Miller. Who flat out said OK creamy -- used that word for. If they're good at most other places you can cover up a guy who's just average or seen minus player you hope that's all the problems. But I I was struck by how long was opportunist in punitive. Think it was yeah like you're gonna play I can you tell afterwards not not not a punishment I'll do whatever they want you know -- the back of his mind he's thinking I was out here in the fourth quarter -- -- rector practiced -- wandered through it'll be back in competition with with -- I doubt it. You know still I think it's -- dropped to lose we took a step for losing is there somebody else other than those two kick -- and -- left tackle. I think you know if you Gregory made a laugh well he was left tackle with Wisconsin and there's some people who think he's got his body fat down proved. Dramatically acceptable when it up through 7310 and could play there that be a major leap. Is Lance Louis right tackle I don't know community and now you're really you're kind of coming up -- solutions let's see what to do with the varsity is I think Jay Cutler got a personal it. Think they -- last night. When he's in because the field is -- No I think he probably in the slot much with the baby itself -- -- commitment of the -- simply are you don't over analyze it it may be field conditions a little more in this case was for today. Possibly natural way he wasn't play that you did admit you were just want to see more Jason Campbell and and and bush -- In -- weather wasn't and they certainly played well down camp. So mostly but I'm curious though we talked about playing better with the varsity. How does the line blocked better. With Cutler at quarterback than when we're Campbell or anybody else well you saw in Minnesota last year with with Josh McCown. -- and jamarcus -- was a turnstile seven sacks. In that and does that I think girl have been five sacks in the last five games copper plate. It's psychological they shouldn't and nobody will ever so you do block better with somebody but if you know that for -- behind you. Colors that every -- there's a better energy to.
