My wide-ranging interview with Mike Martz at the NFL combine resulted in two different pieces. In Monday's editions, he talked about the controversy surrounding Jay Cutler's knee injury and his decision to use Todd Collins --- and not Caleb Hanie --- as Cutler's primary backup in the NFC Championship Game.
In Wednesday's paper, his thoughts on the offensive line, the receiving corps --- Devin Hester in particular --- and tight end Greg Olsen were published.
Finally, here's what he had to say about the improvement he expects next season.
"You had a whole new staff on offense and an offense that is not easy to learn," he said. "Once you learn it it's easy but the initial shock of it can overwhelm guys --- coaches too. Once they get it it's like algebra, you can figure anything out based on what you know. It's really neat that way. It's not rote memorization. When you call a play you don't just call a play you tell everybody what to do. That's unusual. We fought it a little bit early. It seemed like they were overwhelmed. Then it was like, 'OK, that's what it is.' Then things started to go much faster for them."
