(and it's something I've contemplated previously viewtopic.php?t=15913 )
I'm not entirely sure if it's "creativity", a belief that he belongs in the slot, or just the outcome of Pringle limping and Pettis sucking.They also move Mooney into the slot much more than he had been. He is in the slot on 63.8% of his routes this season, which is up from 43.6% last season, and 36.1% during his NFL career.
Some of that is added because Allen Robinson was better off in the slot, and it made the Bears keep Mooney outside. With ESB on the outside as a strong blocker, they can get more creative with Mooney.
I'd love to see his numbers split out by inside/outside over his career.
