John "Moon" Mullin spoke on a number of topics, including the highs and lows of Lovie Smith's tenure, after the Bears' win over the Lions - 12/30
The -- and all this. View from the moon and down -- long was your sense then they had to be happy about it victory but again there's there's so much hanging in the balance that they have left out of their hands. Well it is presented a couple guys who said. The -- it does this feel pretty good intelligent on RF three hours. So you saw the little mini theater going on in the locker room as the -- of the players are watching -- Minnesota Green Bay game. It was so involving at one point one -- -- couple people black and Ilya. You bear staffers were advocating just yelling to throw the challenge flag and this was like one of their own game figuring getting wrapped up and go to. Players are watching this Wimbledon and there with a huge amount of interest obviously. They say John that was Warner in terms of the big picture of the types of things there's a lot of talk around here you couldn't won't know. About love his stats -- this football team from your perspective. To give us what you think of been the positives and the negatives so far the longest tenure here with the Bears. What columns are show. Pass. You know I I come down to get cut to the at the end first I come down on the fact I believe you should you become the first time security team in over 501 career. And has a lot of positives with this team is -- a top ten defense for most of his time here the offensive problems are obvious. I don't know what they'll do Agassi at the the positives and you know built up so quickly and he won he got for the players of Kyle Orton and you have with Ron Turner got there with Rex Grossman got there with the with Jay Cutler. I think a lot of the problems they're having are not -- you Lovie Smith related. That some -- some things besides they're fortunate to be rectified this offseason. Page on Jim Miller here again obviously happy new year to year and a couple days but. You if you look at the offense still today struggled to score points but. I didn't see an offense that really got frustrated they had a lot of different personnel groupings are different targets were being present a lot of a lot of holes in my opinion would Jay Cutler and they actually moved a lot of guys that lineup at times I saw of Jake Scott give removed at right tackle in Korea meet. Was in there but an offensive did not. Get frustrated when you look at the -- -- the Bears what what where the players talk Monica's seem like they were focused on the task at hand. That's your spot on -- and back and talk to I love it nickname hot tub. James Brown thumb and I Patrick indicated just like that -- so it's OK but. There was a lot of focus. The frustration was into them told Reese -- we just are still doing that. One of us makes a mistake and it seems like when we get inside the good -- at the other -- seven different possessions went inside the thirty Taylor got one touchdown. The Iraq they did not get frustrated. I think they kept their cool it was funny because. Yeah hot tubs you know it the veterans really help me keep my cool -- just a minute turnaround artist rural Garza roll around with brook Alabama -- the gravity of the senior members -- to keep everybody calm but. Now they they kept their composure. I think the mistakes were made that they didn't feel it protected Jay Cutler all that well. But that's that's kind of been there where the whole season -- point to come out finger.
