    If Peppers doesn't get the fumble, Steelers looked like they easily march down the field and put 7 on the board taking the lead, with the way they were manhandling the Bears D. And then everything falls on Cutler to get the Bears out in front. And with the way Cutler was playing, I'm not sure that even happens.

    Okay, take away the Pep TD and give 7 to the Steelers, the Bears still have more points

    Not quite.

    Cutler had the TD drive to Earl Bennett before that, giving us a 34-23 lead. Even IF the Steelers drove down the field and scored a TD, they would still be down by 4, and all the Bears would have to do is kill the clock, or the Defense to keep the Steelers out of the endzone if they got the ball back.

    Peppers' TD only destroyed any hope they had of a comeback, it was Cutler's TD that was the clincher.

    You're right, my thoughts from last night's game were a bit fuzzy. I still don't give Cutler the clincher because I'm sure of the Steelers march down the field and make it 34-30, Cutler gets us a nice 3 and out or worse.

    Doesnt work that way. You cant dismiss the drive he DID have, because of some hypothetical series of plays that never happened. The fact is, the game could've gone either way until Cutler drove down and threw a TD pass, giving us an 11 point lead. Peppers simply put the game to bed (still an amazing play though)

    Jay was clutch in the 4th as were Marshall and Bennett on two great catches. Overall, the O was hampered by a desperate and still very good Pitt D AND by Trestman's decision to go ultra-conservative on his play calling during a long stretch during the middle. He seemed content to run into an 8 man box and risk no downfield throws. The best think Jay did during this stretch was to protect the ball. He got rid of it quick, threw it away, didn't force anything, and took sacks when necessary to avoid backfield fumbles (like Ben had twice). That goes against all of Jay's gunslinger mentality and habits and I thought he shown good discipline to Trestman's strategy. If Jay had made even one dumb mistake during that stretch, Pitt could have won.

    It's a good feeling, seeing Jay responding to Trestman and doing things we have all wanted to see him do here. I'll bet we see Jay continue to get better as the season goes on. He'll get more and more comfortable with this offense and trust Trestman's coaching. If he can do that, then we will have one of the best QB's in the NFL. Jay always had the talent, but now he has the stuff that goes WITH the raw talent that makes a QB solid. He's matured, and he now has a better offense to work with.

    Trestman will get better too, as this season progresses. It's going to be pretty cool to watch all of this come together.

    It does work that way when you follow the trend that Cutler has shown as Bears QB. He simply has not closed out opponents as a Bears QB. He doesn't play well in these pressure type situations where you need him to close a team out. Which is why Peppers TD is bigger than many want to recognize.
