    This one is on Trestman.

    McCown is playing with a hot hand right now. McCown has a QB rating this season of over 100, and today he had 123.4. The guy is playing some good ball for a backup. There was no need to rush Jay into playing today. By starting Jay too soon we risked losing him for a longer time this season than is necessary. Factoring in the Green Bay situation, a McCown win today would have been HUGE. I will always believe that with McCown starting this game - we win. And consequently take over sole 1st place in the NFC-N. Now though, we have lost 2 to the division leading Detroit Lions. It's a tough break for sure. Trestman didn't help us by starting Jay too soon, and he hurt us with some bad play calling today, IMHO.

    Man, we GAVE one away today. Absolutely gift wrapped it and mailed it in. We should be sitting at first place in the NFC-N right this minute, with a good shot at being division champions this year. Instead we shot craps. I just hope Trestman learns from this today. That's the only "positive" I take away from this loss. I believe he's better than Lovie and will learn from this.

    The running game is a separate issue.

    But the QB hits are not all on the OL, Jay is to blame for some for waiting so long to throw.

    Marc Trestman. Period.

    And thanks to Slauson for that stupid penalty.

    Goddammit, we could have won this freakin game.

    While I tend to agree w/that sentiment, the run game is not a separate issue, and McCown was hurried all last drive also.

    Its separate in the fact that they can be good in one area, but suck in another.

    That two point conversion was terrible....a play action to the slant.... would od been O.T. Just having Jay out there was bad. Let him heal and we could of won the game with Josh.

    Too many red zone failures. The INT, two end zone drops by Jeffrey, the holding penalty on Forte TD, not taking the FG, dumb play calling. This was a very winnable game. Depressing.

    Trestman gets the deflated ball on several counts, but mostly for waiting way too long to bring in McCown.

    Cutler is saying the groin wasn't an issue today. It was the rolled ankle. I guess I was wrong. It sure looked like he was hindered in the first half to me, prior to the ankle, but Jay says no, it was the ankle.
