Having McCown start this game was a blessing in disguise

    Guaranteed, Rodgers or no Rodgers, Cutler woulda shat the bed against the Pack, as is his wont. I hope McCown starts next week against Detroit, ESPECIALLY if Cutler is going to be at 60%. NO WAY he is going to be anywhere near 100% only 2 weeks after tearing his freakin' groin. Remember a few weeks ago, when Vick tried to come back too soon from a pulled hammy? I am going to be super p*ssed at Jay if he comes back too soon and wins up playing like pure s*** against the Lions.

    I think Cutler needs to sit out next week to be honest. I really believe McCown CAN and WILL beat the Lions.

    Cutler shouldn't rush to come back. He could make his injury even worse.

    Cutler has yet to play GB yet with Trestman calling the plays, so its impossible to say what WOULDVE happened...but fret not, youll have your opportunity to be proven right or wrong when we host them later this season.

    Yep, I don't see any need to hurry Cutler. McCown had great pass blocking tonight. Lions will bring more pressure. The test will be how he handles it. Another good game from Forte would help him a lot.

    Quite honestly, I am more worried about a healthy Lions team than I am a Green Bay team minus Rogers.

    If Packers can get Matthews, Rodgers, Cobb, etc, off I.R., they are still dangerous. That Lions game next week is really huge.

    Comparing last years Jay complete with last years O Line and without M Bennett and a fit and firing Jeffrey then sure I'd take tonights team and McCown. But that's not a fair comparison. Despite losing 2 of the 3 games against the decent teams we've played (Cinn, Detroit and NO) Jay has help up pretty well.

    Last years Jay and O might have won tonight once Rogers went down anyway because last years established past rush and line backers would've terrorized Wallace and stopped the run.

    Matthews would make a difference, but Rogers is the cog in the wheel. Without him, I'd rather face them again than face a healthy Lions team.

    I agree. We would have won with Cutler under center also. The key was GB losing Rogers
