    Defense and Mel Tucker.

    How can people blame anybody else?!

    Hell, I'd have him at the head of the class...

    I agree injuries are playing a part & also agree the blame starts with the players on a lot of individual plays but the lack of fundamentals/basics are directly attributed to Tucker IMO. You play like you practice & I don't believe these guys are studs during the week & duds on Sunday. Can't believe that we have no structure on defense all cuz of the players...just can't.

    It's a combination of injuries and the defense in general. With a healthy d, I believe we squeak by with a win, but that's not good enough. RG III burned us on the read/ option the whole game.

    On the bright side Detroit lost today, but it looks like the Packers are on their way to make it a virtual 3-way tie in the NFC North.

    This is kinda the twilight zone for me since I ALWAYS bash the defense and always defend Jay. I do agree the D lost the game for us, but mostly because they had so many injuries building up and got winded. Peppers and Conte are the worst and they have no excuse. We know Biggs is no play caller but we saw when he went out, the play calling got actually worse. At lest Biggs for the most part tackles. Tillman of course is the MVP of the defense and has been since the season started. If they cleaned house defensively only Tillman should stay. I know he missed an INT today, but the man is human. Also ZERO pass rush.

    As for Offense and Trestman, they can't be blamed, they put up 41 points. umm, hello, FORTY. ONE. POINTS. (okay, not all of the points were from offense, but the majority were). The bigger mystery is Jay. Being a Jay defender I'm am now really worried about him. Maybe there is some truth to the Jekyll and Hyde of Good Jay and Bad Jay. I say this because if dusty old McCown can come of the bench and do that well, what is wrong with Jay? If Jay doesn't get better and get us to the playoffs this year, he's done with.

    Lastly Gould gets a mention because he missed a rookie FG that in the end may have effected the out come.

    Maybe that's telling us something about Trestman's estimation of how much of the playbook each QB has mastered. Another interpretation, Cutler is constantly changing the plays toward more passing while McCown ran what was actually called. Lots of ways to read this situation.

    If Cutler is out for a while, and we see this "opened-up" playbook on display for the McCown led games; that'll be an interesting turn of events. The haters and the lovers will have a field day.

    It hasn't been talked about, it was a small Trestman post game quip, but he said something along the lines of I just called plays, and McCown ran them, I wasn't having to go over plays and having to get approval....was that a small, or not so small shot accross Cutlers bow?

    I missed that one. If it's true, we may well have seen the last of Cutler as a Bear. I doubt T-Man or Emery will put up with that and offer him a good contract based on the results we've seen so far. Cutty's been good this year, but no more so than most of the QBs out there. Even McCown outplayed him yesterday.

    I wonder if we sign Matt B back after week 10. Definitely we draft a QB or maybe 2 next year. But we need DL and safeties as well. Another difficult draft/FA coming up for Emery.

    Right now the team has 30 people under contract next year, out of 52. That's a lot of holes to fill while also possibly looking at getting rid of your guys under contract(Peppers/Hester). Now you're at 24, The team will be lucky to get 3-4 starters/backups in next years draft, and probably 1-2 impact players.

    I still cannot see Trestman/Emery getting rid of Cutler next year. The team has to many pieces to replace to not at least FT him for a year. Much like Melton this might be the catalyst that prevents the team from having to break the bank for either of them.

    670 just redid the quote from Trestman:

    It was a quip about "not having to ask what he liked or didn't like, I just called the play according to the gameplan."
