Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon, now working as a color commentator for the Seahawks, joined CTL to break down Sunday's matchup in Chicago - 11/30
What sale and NFL hall of Famer Warren Moon easy radio analyst for the Seahawks to just kind of talent he joins us. You know Buffalo Wild Wings hot line I want my question is for you first stop is. This thing with the Seahawks they win at home they struggle on the road they did beat the Bears last year's Soldier Field although Cutler didn't play a night game. Does the road where on them -- to look at their schedule and you guys have traveled five times over two time zones and you're part of that and does that. Affect these guys are what is your series to why they can't seem to win. On the road the over several years now. I think just a small part of it no question about it a lot of between west really struggle when they go all the way on to the East Coast and different times -- If you look at the other way epic James struggled real -- -- from the east where -- The time zones and travel there. Through the hole to -- all those things take a little bit of a hole which you can use as an excuse. I think this is a young football team -- to try to find themselves -- They've improved a lot different areas throughout the season workers are now on offense or red zone offense. Another extra early to come overcome as a football team is tomorrow to win on the road and they've been in every road game this year all the game got out. Almost the last struggle but. Football game. He ever does stop football team or are they they need to make sporting news that there were so. Get over that hurdle to what that I think history will take off and Malia. That mature in that area and be much better on the road. They -- Frankie -- here I guess for fans around the country this story for the Seahawks has been. The play of quarterback Russell -- I mean he just look at a rookie coming into the league and how players summoned his stats there's this incredible army has. Seventeen touchdowns again against apex is. His as quarterback radius in 93 the last four games have been an even higher that he's had a quarterback rating. Over a 100006 as as a former quarterback are you assessing his -- I really enjoy watching him -- not gotten no Russell pretty well the last few months and we talk a lot. In the week also after games and just continues to improve and ID works so hard -- as one of the reasons why it ever success. The first guy in the building everyday won the last one of the league. -- has great physical skills no question about it being election a couple inches in height but. He makes up for that but inevitable -- and make plays street so. One of the guys and nothing's gonna help this team overcome that you grow low walls. He has the ability to make big plays measures up to give him the football those situations. That endorsement because. Struggled on the road earlier this need to but he really played well the last two ball games on the. And Warren Phil Rodgers with the Tribune thanks very much for doing the show with us. And earlier we're talking about these fines that the NFL just throws around with penalties. You know whether it's an unsportsmanlike conduct or or he had a horse collar tackle. Do you think the fines on top of the penalties really do anything to limit. You know that type of a play in a game can -- that your players react to it. I think to a certain extent they do but I don't think. Stricter about that when you're at a football game. You know you're you're one up there's just try to make plays all the football over sometimes we're over here it is contract or whatever you're not trying to do that but. In -- appeared that way just because maybe of -- -- body position -- whatever right but look here is also about your allies that that that's a pro player. Just can't control of the game moves to trap so. There's certain penalties maybe oh unnecessary roughness. -- gut punch a guy or something like that. And Mike -- -- you -- fine but some holes later it happened. In the reaction time on an actual play I don't think I'll go to the attention that much because. Even though you say a year under your control because you're the one going to. You're not totally under your control because all you do is try to make a play on a guy you don't know where that guy's gonna end up -- you go to make that it. They weren't also -- from the Tribune. Haven't seen Seattle since the infamous Packers game. Well which we expect from the defense against the Bears are they in what kind of schemes really in a blitz laughter. What do you expect. Really Brigham and a jury you know. How could you tell us you like -- I think he's got bigger picture -- when you have a good quarterback like Jay Cutler you've got to try and -- brings to confuse him a little bit you know you gotta let -- go lay back and own some can't let him know exactly which -- or because. What -- 00 -- or and then he'll be able to -- effective. The -- -- need to play a little bit better than they have been over the last three or four weeks. Haven't been -- dominated because there were earlier in the season opened their label that train passion that they Lakewood earlier in the year. Maybe because relate a year -- got started -- look retire but that's no excuse either because. Everybody started nobody is banged up this time you're used to it got it up there and trying to push yourself. To play -- -- high as -- -- characters -- because of the playoff -- games now -- -- out there and play well on you got to play your social. I would ask you about -- Jay Cutler when you played like for the Oilers you had such great receivers are thrown Haywood Jeffries Ernest givens drew hill. Right now he's basically had he base -- grand Marshall and guys who just have not had the results. Do you look at it as. Colors and have the support system around him or he needs to make those receivers better is that even possible. Well that's what great players do they make receivers. Are you look at. Manning. In Indianapolis whoever notebook here goes on and all this does Williams -- -- so. Same thing out there in Denver right now to know what Eric Decker and in some of the other guys on the football and you'd make him he's got better players there what they were before he got -- so. That's what Jay Cutler has to do would order. To make himself well ultimately quarterback story to tell the the other around the make them better because who he -- his work ethic and what he demand doubles. Warm or thank you very much for the time and enjoy your weekend here in Chicago we really appreciate you joined -- Picture here we weren't a great week. For you.
