Bears Insider John "Moon" Mullin breaks down Chicago's sluggish start and eventual hot finish in their 23-22 win over the Panthers - 10/28
John moon on who's around these guys -- twenty fours seven and and god willing thanks for the time if you emerged from a lot from -- -- got lots of us. News -- Nuggets not that I know one of the things you might not laid up with Eric -- about Robbie Gould's game winning kick. -- -- -- he came he said he noticed that. Robbie was down and use the word pouting a little bit on the sideline after -- missed the other 32 yarder. So I went over to him and flat said -- you're gonna make the game winner and have every -- you said -- kind of like you're playing for the crowd witnessed let's build the drama a little bit so. If not the robbing gold hasn't missed a -- pretty even if he was a little down. I don't like Eric Williams come over and saying something was Robby mentioned -- you have international pressure -- -- Jim Miller here are gonna talk to again I guess what was the talk in the locker room I mean could they put their finger on. Was it complacency. Wasn't facing an unconventional opponent. Like the Carolina Panthers I mean what was it today -- the Bears to be flat really threw three and a half quarters of this ball game. Judge and they didn't have a good answer and in fact -- they said we were flat. And yet I said well was it was a during the week you watched the one and 510 minutes -- that's the strange -- -- -- -- the -- we watch the better they looked. They were not a one and five Teemu that your -- play the tapes obviously of the you have 540 yards from last season. That Carolina did a few things like defensively. Or the linemen said they clearly washed the Detroit game and they start slanting more it was something that we had trouble with and we just knew we weren't able to really adjust to it until the second half. So they saw things but the another penalty was complacency just because these guys clearly said that more than one. This was not a one in five team from what we saw on film. Yeah I don't jump when the other things that happen to go on the other side of the ball was you know everybody is expecting that read option offense today. They're probably still looking for good normally you know they run with a -- of the whole hype that college. Read option offense. Things that you put that big on the back burner today we're back to regular pro style office. Yeah it was just think a couple -- did the deal Lyman said. We didn't slack off on a pass -- but we were much more concerned. You know obviously have to protect your lanes put against Cam Newton. -- the ends were saying let's we cannot lose contain against this guy and that to the tackles are saying. Yet it was controlled rush because this team clearly was coming coming out and willing to run the ball so. If they weren't getting the pressure that was part of the reason. Again and guiding Carolina blocked a little better. And and privately if you said and they apparently were calling hasn't defaced because that's what Carolina do roller longer were not happy about that. What about on the offensive side in the pass -- on Jay Cutler particularly in the first half. When you guys Mohawk who had to say about that. But again it was there they were showing some things like slanting. And in the got nothing to lose and this might have been an -- it was a flat thing. If he noticed a lot of the guys that we execute we met her first block we didn't hold our blocks wouldn't stay on things so. In almost implying they expect to cover to have the ball out or they didn't expect that kind of effort out Carolina but to the guys told me. We've we've made our initial blocks we made a cut and then didn't really stay on the guys that kind of thing so they didn't sustain blocks. Because a lot of the things were they were just turned loose way Ndamukong Suh was a little bit there -- you know a lot of almost second effort Saxon -- seems to say that the Bears. Enough that didn't play the second half -- in the Carolina Panthers play with more of them expect. No thanks very much appreciate the time and we'll look for your minimum fifteen at pieces on CSN Chicago dot com I mean I appreciate it.
