    Chicago O: wow, that was an abortion of qb play out there by Cutler. 2 td's in garbage time is nothing to hang your head on. Why did Forte only have 14 carries that entire game, and only 8 at 1/2 time? That's embarassing, even w/rec's he was under 20 touches, he NEEDS to be in the 25 range minimum, this game was not so out of control, even at 1/2 time that the team should have went soley to the air, especially w/how poorly Cutler was playing. Cutler is what Cutler is, and he's going to have these types of games...is he capable of taking the team to the playoffs and winning a SB, ya probably, is he capable of taking a team right out of the playoffs yep guaranteed. The OL wasn't horrible and on those 3 picks they weren't the issue. He threw into triple coverage and double coverage w/time in the pocket, that is unacceptable for a vet nfl qb.

    Chicago D: Gave up 40 points, sounds bad right, well much like how the O scored 40 last week and it was a mirage b/c the D created 17 of those, well the Chi O gave it right back to them this week and set up the Det O w/17 points. Again the DL struggled to get pressure and the DB's just didn't get the job done. Still the D had 3 TO's, and almost had another at the goalline, they essentially did their job. You asked for a Peppers step up, and he did, a sack, a qb pressure and a forced fumble. And other then picking up that forced fumble, where was last years 19th pick? No where. Even I thought he'd show more then this by now.

    Chicago ST: other then Gould, F complete fail on eveyone else on the ST's. Hester did okay, but nothing special, Podlesh didn't have a good game, and actually their poor tackling contributed to one of those Det TD's. Micheal Ford, thanks for that missed tackle btw.

    Chicago Coaches: WTH? You went away from Forte, you kept putting the ball in Culters hands even though he was way off, the game wasn't out of hand, just wth?


    Det: Folks welcome to the other side of facing the Bears the last two years. The O is nothing special most of the game, and the D just made the whole team look better then it was. Coaches were okay but nothing special either. The D was advantageous and took the GB approach to Cutler, let him throw the ball and he'll throw it to us eventually; and he did. The O made a handfull of plays to give them the win.

    I have to pretty much agree, Ric. There's a lot of things I could cite (missed tackles on Bush, Podlesh's shitty punts, weak pass rush) but those are all secondary. I didn't think the D or STs were all that good but that wasn't the problem. The problem was Cutler looked like Sanchez out there. He sucked in every facet--accuracy, decision-making, timing/quickness, ball security, everything. He was f*****g terrible.

    I'd take Matt Cassell or Brian Hoyer over that. Unacceptable.

    The OL was NOT the problem.

    This was pretty much the polar opposite of the Steelers game from last week. This was definitely a wake-up call for the Bears. Hope this doesn't become the trend down the road when they face teams considerably better than Detroit.

    Oline did it's job, for the most part. Cutler went into Brett Favre mode for the game.

    Long had 1 questionable hands to the face, but that was the only issue.


    Cassell helped the Vikings win today, Alex Smith helped his team win today, those are "game managers" that don't have 1/2 the overall ability of Cutler. Point being able to play w/in yourself is a huge key to today's NFL. Unless your Brees Brady or Manning the qb cannot force throws, and no qb, even those three can afford to have 4 turn overs in their name.

    Suh got through a bit, but he is a great player. The OL was not the problem. Now the D-line, they just sucked.

    the did get some pressure, and Peppers got a sack and a forced fumble, I wouldn't say they sucked, but they weren't great by any means, and now w/out Melton it's going to get even worse.

    Detroit had the passing game under control because Stafford got limited pressure. Their run game was very effective. Bush is a great back, but he was pealing off the yards at will.
