    I don't know about the pre-snap calls, for the reason you mentioned. I just assumed they were where they were supposed to be (for the D called for the plays), but who knows. It looked to me like they were having a hard time shedding blocks, they took some bad angles at runners, the tackling all season so far could be better, and I'm sure it will get better, and it seemed like they were a bit slow reacting to plays as they unfolded. I'm not trying to say anyone had a bad game, just that I believe they will be sharper as the season goes on. All three look fast and athletic (Anderson has really looked good).

    I wasn't going to re-watch the game because I really can't deal with losses very well (I really shouldn't post here on the board for 48 hours after a loss.....seriously, I make an ass out of myself overreacting to losses). But in this case I'm glad I did watch it again. There were far more "positives" than negatives. I actually felt better after watching it again. Even the DL didn't look THAT bad......and Pep had a much better game. The guy was all over making plays.

    If Cutler can protect the ball better (and not fumble) and learn to throw some of those balls away safely - we win that game.

    Cutler,Cutler,Cutler.
    He's not going to walk on water ... he will get rattled in situations.
    Can he get less rattled in situations then in the past ?
    3-1

    As poorly as Cutler did play Sunday, he has handled the loss well and he was the guy pushing everybody to hurry up on their last drive. Everyone else was too tired or had given up, but he sure hadn't. That's a game in years past where he would've lost by 20. We will see what he learned on Sunday vs the Saints.

    1. Long I knew he would be good but I didn't think he'd be this good.
    2. Mills I am pleasantly surprised how well he doing as the Starting RT as a FIFTH-ROUND Draft Pick!
    3. Peppers he has really fallen off.
