    Agreed. However Trestman didn't help either with going for it on 4 & 1 instead of just going for 3.

    Shouldn't have started McCown, JC's first drive was a TD, and he looked good until sometime in the 2nd when he looked to have a bad knuckle and grabbed his groin. THAT's when McCown should have came in.

    The game wasn't televised where I live , so I can't really comment about specific events , but I thought it was a bad idea to start cutler in the first place. I hope nothing was reaggrivated.

    McCown should've came in when Cutler was clearly showing signs that he was hurt.

    His throwing motion looked off to me from the beginning, even though we had a great first score. Maybe I'm imagining it, but it was my first thought watching the game. I agree though, at the very worst he should have pulled Jay from the game earlier. I will always believe that McCown starting = win today, and we would be a game up on both Green Bay and Detroit. Losing this game really hurts.

    I missed the opening drive. But what I took away from that 1st qtr, is that even hurt Cutler can make throws that stretch the field that McCown just cannot. McCown can dink and dunk w/the best of them, but he cannot stretch the field, which means there was no way to take advantage of a Def that was stacking the box to shut down the Run, and no way to get them out of it.

    But yes they needed to pull him at 1/2 time.

    Jay had a GREAT first half for a QB that wasn't 100% ready. So, no he should have NOT started McCown.

    McCown should have come in the 3rd quarter, yes. We can all agree on that.

    I agree LilB, hell the guy had a td, and a int, but was at 60%+ comp % and every drive was over 3min's. the O was moving the ball well against a really stout D.
