Mularkey has pushed right buttons
You can't say enough about the job coach Mike Mularkey has done with this team, or why he's one of the few in the world chosen to lead an NFL team. He showed exceptional patience in staying with quarterback Drew Bledsoe when everyone was screaming for the veteran QB to be benched.
He also picked the perfect tempo to bring along RB Willis McGahee. Most of all, he didn't let this team quit. He kept pushing his players and kept them inspired -- and that's why they have a chance to make the playoffs.
