    Cutler without question. He played IMO his best game of the season so far. He was Good Jay tonight.

    Jennings.
    Without Jennings, we just lost this game.
    Was that Earl Campbell I saw out there running over Bears all night?
    oh, it was some guy that was sitting on his couch 2 weeks ago!

    Jennings. Pick 6 ended up being key, and the INT to put the game away (since we werent able to keep them out of the endzone anyway)

    Jay, no question. Trestman gets the brain dead play-call award for the sixth time this season.
    Jennings gets the golden horseshoe award. He easily could have had this loss hung on his cap with the idiot unnecessary roughness he got away with or half dozen times he got burned on deep slants only to have Manning miss his man.

    Another good game by Cutler and Jennings.

    Still, 27-21 against a 0-5 team is nothing to be proud of.

    Jay Cutler did play a good game but Jennings 2nd int sealed the game because the Giants were definitely marching down the field and got to the Bears 40 or 30 yard line (if not mistaken)before Jennings intercepted the ball.

    I don't know, I guess Cutler. I loved how he threw the ball away more than usual, and also had a few scrambles when he couldn't find a receiver. He wasn't spectacular by any means, but for the second straight week, he took what the defense gave him and didn't make mistakes.

    The defense was maddening. They only gave up 21, but the Giants moved the ball all night and would have scored more had they not gifted the Bears a few INTs. The Bears' offense moved the ball pretty much at will for most of the game, but they failed to put this game away. Just a frustrating game all around. But we'll take it.

    A win is a win, Giants still have their troubles but they did score on the Bears, defense was good/problemly, but both teams missing key players,
    may as well expect a wacky game. Defense got their licks in with a score tho and interceptions.
    I expect a more controlled game with the Redskins, I hope Cutler not try the long bombs and get some good fast dishouts, lets control that ball and march down the field to score keeping the redskins out.

    Cutler.

    He was smart and threw the ball away and evaded avoidable sacks. One dumb "Bad Jay" mistake and we would have lost.

    PS: Alshon needs to make that catch. It was 6

    oh, the Giants were throwing blitz after blitz, that might be a sign of a desparate team trying to win but the Bears worked that out.
    Its weird to see a team that won the Superbowl not long ago not even favored to win it blew the opponent out, now winless at this point.
    sorry bout that Giants, try again, but GO BEARS!

    and BTW, I'll give the game ball to the defense, they did stop some key plays and got a score.

    Agree. The O is definitely much better and has better weapons but T's play calling still isn't impressing me.

    Jay deserves it, but I voted for Marshall. It was the pair of shoes TDs.

    Eli Manning because he secured the win even though Jay Cutler played a great game again. If you listen to the announcers Eli is never at fault for his horrible play.

    That first series had me yelling at the TV. Take the 3 points. It turned out OK with the pick 6, but that doesn't make it any better. While in Montreal Trestman gave away a game or two in his Montreal career with a questionable, risky play call. Sometimes he may be too clever by half. He also has to remember that he doesn't have a short yardage QB now, nor a yard off the ball.

    On the flip side, according to Cutler and Trestman, they're still working with a limited playbook while the O learns it.

    I actually liked the 4th and 2 going for it, Cutler threw the ball a little late and behind Marshal or that an easy first down, and maybe a TD; follow that up w/a pick 6 by Eli and the game is 14-0 in the 1st and the tone of that game is set.
    Didn't work out that way, and the O started to struggle in the 2nd half, but at least the team started fast for once.

    Wait, you can "agree" with a post? How the hell do you do that? All I'm seeing is "like" and "dislike".

    Anyway, I forgot about going for it on 4th. It's good to trust your O line on 4th and short, but this wasn't really trusting them because it wasn't that short and we didn't run. It was unncessarily risky, and this is the second or third time this year Trestman has gone for it when he shouldn't have. As the clock ticked down from about 10 minutes left in the game, I kept thinking how different it would be if the Bears had that FG, putting them up by 9 points. The defense was doing nothing at the end, and if Eli doesn't overthrow that receiver, I think the Giants would have scored and won. I appreciate the desire to go for the jugular early, especially after a turnover, but You've GOT to take the points early.

    I think it was another poor game for Trestman, or at least a poor start playcalling-wise. I hope he is using this to get re-acclimated to the NFL and can adjust his playcalling, which is something our offense hasn't been able to do since, umm, probably ever.
