Moon on Bears PGL: Does win help save Lovie's job?
Time now for our view from the moon this time coming by. John moon my fifth since coming out -- Bears -- joining us outside the bears' locker moon thanks for the time and the patients getting hooked up there. Not a whole lot of talk from Lovie at least all of these mouth and you don't expect as much about this team -- tried to push into the playoffs. For his sake with all the jobs speculation are rotating around his future. Now Crist and that's an interest in part of the student and one hand you say you know he's he is well liked by his players and it wouldn't be. He's the generic stretch to say well maybe score and there is saying let's wouldn't you guys listen we're all in this together when one for me kind of win one for the gipper. Completely the opposite that as a couple guys told will be out of character for -- he has gone the other direction and they talked about -- -- areas of scenarios of the playoffs. Early last night and that's about it I saw a couple of guys around the hotel and it's and again very clear the lobby once these guys relax and yet to. Focus on one game I mean it's cliche but that's exactly where's my citizens is trying not to loaded up with any added significance. Well -- Jim Miller here -- while I'm all for one and one for the gipper but pretty shocking that they use. Reverse psychology to to go -- get the win what my meaning is the Bears come out throwing the football. Granted Ken Whisenhunt wanted to challenge over Brandon Marshall Burlingame but. They were Chuck -- all over the field against probably one of the better pass defense is in the National Football League I mean is that a winning strategy. Well when you look at it from the Bears and what were what were they saying about that strategy tenor of the game because it was not successful. At all. He had Jim -- that's hard when to figure because obviously every player goes to the quarterback and if the quarterback he's. Mike -- gave him discretion with all -- So if he's electing to go to 1580%. Of the time. I guarantee you Mike does is not calling 80% of the plays to go through one player I know he wants to use Brandon Marshall you know heavily. But -- nearest your completing one for eleven in your first. Eleven passes something is clearly not working it's an odd mixture of having you as a series all year long. They're still outscored the and that's that's kind of unfortunately this is a fourteen point performance against a pretty good defense. But you know the Detroit Lions dysfunctional as they were put up ten points against -- so. Yet it's still a mystery to me how how the game plan is put together his case involved in that and then by extension Brandon marshall's involvement of Jews so. Why why you come out of the strategy like that militarily to candid about that -- -- I don't Stew about the offices. That is the the passing game coordinator. You know in Germany -- how much say does he have -- what goes into this game plan and what happens on game day. Yet again it -- b.s Jay Cutler is pretty much handpicked guy. And I wasn't it bigger picture with this as far as how much you know obviously he's involved -- play designing the -- a position coach for color just went my prices that is the position coach for the O line. It one thing in general that Mike Tyson is done and maybe to his detriment whereas Mike Martz was the Padilla mark net he decided OK -- of I'll take what you say but it's going to be that you are really not that interest him. Mike Tice is a -- a consensus builder and somebody said last night to me. Maybe he's too much that way maybe he's too accommodating is trying to bring everybody into the process at some point maybe you're getting too much input or. -- the compass is getting lost a little bit so it's specifically how much is Jeremy Bates. Hard to say but it's if he's -- That many -- going to fifteen I got things and nobody actually -- pulling them up pulling up from that.
