    LOL Yea reach for the diabetes excuse to explain away a clueless performance from a supposed 'franchise QB.' He looked like shit because that's what he is in reality, in terms of an NFL QB.

    Trestman said Cutler had received an IV, but he wasn't sick, no excuses from the coach or the QB. Both said the 4 turn overs were what cost the team that game.

    The turnovers were the obvious culprit, but I remain steadfast in stating that the impact the crowd noise had on the offense made a difference. You were constantly seeing guys have to adjust one another, and offensive linemen tap one another. While that's likely a league wide thing, I honestly think that between the Lions d-line and the crowd, that line wasn't giving Cutler any favors. That still doesn't account for his holding onto the ball too long, but the offense, while showing that a comeback after halftime was not impossible, could never get into rhythm, and the turnovers just made it that much worse on paper. Did the Lions deserve to win? Absolutely, but they shouldn't be able to drop 40 points on the defense.

    Well, the rational was that they had to go to the pass because they were behind. My response would be "You just had a 53 yard running play. How many of our passing plays were 53 yards? We seems to be able to run on them. Do it."

    Really, I think that pressure has changed Jay's game from when he first got here. And although the pressure was not bad (the OL did a good job), the pressure in Jays head is the only pressure that counts. He played like he had no time on a few of those. He didn't set.

    Well that could explain the change in his performance. He did play better in the second half. He was just off in the first half. his throws, his timing, his decisions. That COULD have been a result of his diabetes. I had that thought during the game as well, but had not heard about an IV until now.

    And NO, this is NOT an EXCUSE. It is a legitimate CONCERN.

    Hard to stay with the run if you are that far behind, there is not a team out there that would have stayed with the run after the second quarter scoring fest.

    I always see these stats about how if the RB gets so many touches that the team has an outstanding record. Well that is because the run game is an option, when you are trailing it requires an approach that can score quickly.

    The OP was talking about runs up the middle, and I tend to agree that against a big line running up the middle should not be the first option. It seems like you are not taking advantage of the weakness of a big guy (he is slower to the edge).

    Watching the Saints last night, it is obvious that Sproles is not the type of back that you want to pound the middle of the line with, and they did not run him up the middle often. BUT with that being said, you still need to stay balanced, runs up the middle sometimes work when you have set it up with runs to the edge and pass plays.

    If you want to hear crowd noise, come out here to Seattle -- but bring your ear plugs

    I'll pass. Just shows ya what the advantage of having a dome is, though. I know Seattle doesn't have a dome, but there must be something up with the way it was built (to allow the acoustics ) to get 131.9 decibels.

    That's part of it. The other part is that Seahawks fans are berserk! I can't even go to the freakin' grocery store without seeing "GO HAWKS" signs. Screw them. I still wear my Bears cap everywhere.
