    That is exactly what I thought. Now we have Jay 'Grossman' Cutler to contend with.

    Yep, how do you give 80-100mil contract to a guy that is very capable of having multiple games a season like that?

    A game like this will definitely go into evaluating whether or not Cutler is worth a contract extension. It's make or break time.

    I didn't think the recievers were helping too much. I though Alshon put in a good effort. There were two passes that I thought Brandon should have caught. Certainly frustrating on all accounts.

    That's a perfect overview of the situation.

    I agree the OL wasn't that bad. Sure they had their moments, but overall, against a stellar DL, they did give Jay enough time to complete passes. Jay was just off today.

    He's got the gene. I do (in fairness) believe he's a better QB than Rex Grossman on a "good day" but when "Bad Jay" shows up, he's just like "Bad Rex" was. Man, it makes me sick to admit it. But he has the disease. I believe it is incurable. Trestman isn't going to be able to cure Jay.

    It's easy to get too down on a bad day like it is to get too up on a good one. But your point there is really the crux of the issue and is why today is way more significant than just "one bad game". If Cutler truly can't be "fixed"--And I don't mean being turned into Peyton Manning but just purged of the horrific thumb-sucking crapfests he melts down into--then there's no point keeping him around after his year. It doesn't matter that he plays well the rest of the time or gets you into a wildcard berth or goes 11-5. He's not worth wasting any more time and money on after this season. And that means we are starting all over at QB with a rookie draft pick. That's what this year is about discovering. And today's game was very negative for Jay's future since we have seen this dog and pony show before.

    MP - the issue with that is if the object is not to waste any more time on a losing proposition (which BTW, I am not yet willing to admit), what would you put the time into? Blanchard is the only player we have that we could divert devopment time to. I would be ok with that later on in the season -- after we are eliminated from the postseason and if they do decide Cutler is not the one. So I understand and agree with the train of thought, I'm just thinking that it is too early for me to have pulled that mental switch right now.

    We aren't going to melt down. The problem is we always have " will the pressure get to Jay again this game?" in the backs of our mind whenever he takes the field.
