    It's what we've been saying all along. He's a good QB, if he has time to make his reads. It's obvious his keying on BM was because he didn't have time to make the reads. That and our other "WRs" rarely got open or could hold on to the ball. It's all about the O-line.

    The Bengals blitzed just under a third of their pass rushes and STILL didnt get a sack? impressive OL protection.

    The OL was solid, but this stat is also on Cutler b/c he didn't hold onto the ball until the WR was open. He was throwing to the spot that the target was supposed to be. In Sunday's game, not only did the OL do their job, but the QB also did theirs, and it meant Cutler was clean all game.

    670 has Biggs on, he said that during blitz's the Bears kept 1 or 2 extra blockers in to help pick it up.

    Don't mind Cutler keying more on Marshall if he's also making them pay with other guys. Marshall's such a beast that I don't see purposely ignoring him at times just to balance it out to satisfy some of the talking heads out there.

    As the year progresses, I see Cutler's confidence growing with everyone else to the point he can't help but find them.

    Tark, but that was the beauty of yesterday, he didn't really key on him. Ya he lead in targets, as any 1 should, but here is how it broke down, it was very even:

    Marshal 10
    Jeffery 8
    MBennett 6
    Forte 6
    Earl 1
    Bush 1

    I wouldn't mind 2-3 more targets to Earl but that's how I'd like to see it break down, Marshal leads in targets, but not more then 2x's the next 2. That means he's finding the open man and not forcing the ball.

    Very true, ricza

    Just that it's still easy to find that criticism out there even tho it's not the case...so far.

    The haters are just gonna keep hating no matter what he does...

    well I haven't been on the interwebs much so if someone is saying he was still Marshal centric then they are just ignorant haters. That was a great game played by Cutler, and PFF(this shows how you have to take everything they do w/a grain of salt) gave Cutler the highest rating of any QB on Thurs/Sunday night; including Manning. I don't agree w/that, but I will say that Cutler was the best done for the Bears in a very long time.

    Do you think we could beat the packers, 49ers, and Falcons? They have high-scoring Os. As we progress, we may be able to improve our ability to score and hang with those teams. After the Broncos game, it is apparent that you need at least 7 Tds to beat the best AFC team

    Falcons, ya I think the Bears could beat them. Could they beat GB or SF, not so sure about that. SF has a complete team, above average in both O and D. GB has owned the Bears for years, I'll have to see the Beras beat them to believe they can at this point.
