    Give it to Conte. He is absolutely killing us.

    No. I'm not buying "AJ dropped a pass" as an excuse for Jay Cutler. He consistently burns timeouts, avoids the dumpoff, and makes a BAD pass or two each game, that he certainly deserves blame here. How many games are we going to have to watch him get his **** together in the 4th quarter, to even make it a game? He played like this against the Lions and Saints, and we got the same result. I'm not saying we replace him, but jesus christ, he's not gotten any better in the first 3 quarters this year, than he did last year. This is the type of crap he pulled under Tice, and we blamed Tice for EVERYTHING. We're now seeing the flaws in Jay's game, that keeps him from being in the "elite" category.

    Defense!

    If they had won McCown should have won the game ball. He actually didn't play bad.

    Okay, then Josh McCown is clearly better at reading the defense and it's Jay's fault that we didn't run the ball at all to start out. When the hell have you ever seen a team lose its starting QB and then OPEN-UP its playbook? Where the hell was the offensive strategy the first half?

    Trust me, I understand where you're coming from, but even under Tice, Jay somehow "magically" got his **** together in the 4th quarter, game in, game out. What I'm saying is, we've seen these same bad habits out of Jay Cutler, enough times, under different coordinators, to see that a lot of the blame goes with him, for slow starts on offense.

    You score 41 Points and you lose. It's all on the defense.

    He is listed as other.

    Bad scheme? Maybe.... but I think the lack of healthy players is more to blame than a bad scheme. Sooner or later, you have to put the blame on the players. Bad scheme or not, they need to get the damn job done. They have sucked for the most part of the year, failing to cover properly, and failing to tackle properly.
