    If he is getting no playing time with as decimated as the DL has been and as lackluster a rush as we have had (are we still in last place with sacks?), there is a reason. On the other hand, we have not let him go so they must feel he has potential. I think next year he develops to the point where they think they can use him, or they will let him go.

    By the way, where have all the smiley faces gone? How can we post with no smiley faces? This is a real crisis!

    What can you do? There are only two possible answers to whether Trestman should have pulled Cutler out earlier, and you can see that there are people on both sides of that argument. What seems clear to one person makes no sense to another. And that is for BOTH sides of the argument.

    Like I said.... what can you do? As long as people respect each others opinions, then all's good.

    as long as people understand opinions and not try to back them up w/some kind of flaky stat...sure. You cannot put up tackles and sacks of Peppers and think that he is not effecting the OL in ways those stats don't show, or not understand that the D might well be asking him to do things to sacrafice his stats for the sake of others, like stunting and taking on another OL for the sake of someone else on the DL.

    As for Cutler, there are clear reasons why there is a debate, it was obvious he was not 100%, but was still medically cleared to play, but yet you should sit the guy, the same guy that was called a "pussy" b/c he went out of a NFC game? He started hot, and got worse, so the real question is, WHEN should he have been pulled.

    :rolleyes: Well if Corn Wash was able to get 1 tackle on 4 plays then he logically should have had 10 tackles on 40 plays, play the man.

    Ah the obvious extrapilation. By that Forte will have 2K yards and 16 TD's. ;)

    Besides as I listened to breakdowns of the game, one of the first plays he had he was driven 5 yards behind the QB and never once tried to fight his way back into the play.

    Again as bad as Pepp/Bass are, he's worse, there is no story here.

    With Bass making the big interception TD, that pretty much assures his spot as back-up when McCkellin returns, so barring further injuries , CornWash probably won't get any more snaps this season. I was studying Charles Jonson pass rush tonight. He has 8.5 sacks this season. He is pretty much a power rusher, He takes a couple steps and bull rushes. They couldn't hold him out. He would have had a sack or two if Brady hadn't gotten the ball out fast. I checked his history. He also came from UGA in 2007 draft (Bearstuff: did you see him in college?). He was 270 in college, but now 285. All his draft combine measureables (40 yd., bench press,vertical jump) were good, but not as good as CornWash. He only got into 3 games his first season -- 1 tackle, no sacks. If CornWash could bulk up to 285 (add 20 pounds), maybe he can become more of a power rusher over the next couple years. Even if his speed goes from 4.55 to 4.75 with the extra weight, that's probably a good trade-off. Johnson was 4.86 in the draft.
