I agree but that's not the point. It's not that "Cutler loses games". He hasn't this year (except for Detroit game 1 in which he did pretty much lose it 90% on his own). It's that he doesn't WIN GAMES. Not "big games" anyway. It's even worse that 1-3 this year as his one signature win was against an AFC team on opening day. He's 0-2 in the division and 0-3 in the conference. After crappy performances in Detroit and Washington, the Bears were handed a gift from heaven against Green Bay with Rodgers out and McCown surprising everyone with his solid ball-control performance. The very next week coming off that huge unexpected win on the road the Bears once again couldn't get it done in a BIG MUST WIN game. I do fault Trestman a lot for some very questionable tactical and strategic decisions but Jay (who probably should have been pulled as we've discussed) was utterly ineffective from the late-2ndQ on. That pick on the goal line was a horrible decision that flipped momentum badly. I blame Trestman for calling it (if he did, Jay may have been freelancing there) and Cutler for throwing it no matter what the call was from the sidelines. The D is a total dumpster fire, no argument from me there. But the D didn't lose Sundays game giving up only 21 at home to Stafford/Calvin/Reggie. The ineffective/inconsistent/opportunity-squandering O did. Again, Trestman and Cutler didn't get it done when they had to. All I'm saying is, concentrate on rebuilding the D this offseason while FT'ing Cutler (the O stays intact) and revisit the LT deal for him question next season. He hasn't shown enough to warrant a multi-year big dollar commitment IMO until he can show staying healthy, reducing avoidable TOs, making smarter/unsexy decisions, and regularly winning "big games" against high level competition.
