    Even after all that Jay threw a couple pass's in the endzone that should have been caught. If AJ hangs onto either its a different story line. Having said that Jay should have been out and its on the coach to make that call.

    Regardless of what Cutler or any other player believes, the head coach has the final word regarding who plays and who doesn't. Hopefully Trestman learns something from this so he doesn't make the same mistake again.

    Granted, Cutler did a decent job when he was out there, but once he started showing signs he was hurting, Trestman should've pulled him.

    Absolutely. If you really believe it's the System, you sit Cutler the whole game imo.
    not trusting McKnown to run the system well after he already did fairly well twice just seems totally out of character for Trestman. ?????
    seldom is 60 or 70% of any player better than the guy behind him. Cutler and Tillman need to sit until they are healthy. They are going to stay dinged up all season long if this continues. Seemed like an endless procession of replays of Jay going down painfully at the end of the play. Tillman looked lke he was fighting very hard to hide his pain. Every tackle looked like it punished him.

    The consequences of this mistake by Trestman possibly cost us a division championship. We had the hated Green Bay Packers on the ropes with our win over them at Lambeau, Rodgers out for multiple games AND a loss today to the Eagles. They gave us a big opportunity to take over as the big dogs in the division.

    And then this.

    We let the lowly Detroit Lions beat us in a game that was SO winable today. For that matter, our 1st game against Detroit was winable too. But today we just gave a game away.

    Now I'm thinking we may end up in 3rd place in the NFC-N, and no playoffs again. I'm getting so sick and tired of it. We'll probably be bottom feeders with the Vikings. We'll see how the rest of the season plays out. But my gut feeling is that today cost us bigtime. It makes me sick. What makes me crazy, is the fact that we FINALLY have a solid backup QB who can win games for us - and we decide to not use him. How crazy is that?

    Losing a game like this is nothing short of aggravating, frustrating, and sickening. We'll probably finish ahead of the Packers this year, but end up falling short of a wild card spot.

    yeah, JABF. Before the game I thought the results of this game would probably decide the division. Obviously, we don't give up and we can still take it, but nothing has changed my mind. And that is not just being upset because we lost the game. You have two pretty good teams in the Lions and the Bears (oh my... sorry couldn't resist the Wizard of Oz thing)...
    Neither one are prone to stumble very much going forward so I felt that the team that had the advantage after this game probably keeps it, and that is the Lions.

    I agree. And once Rodgers returns, Green Bay will be winning and could win out the season. Detroit is for real this year, so they'll probably be the division champs. I don't even see us getting a wild card. This was a HUGE game today. When we look back on where the season ended, we'll probably point to this game as the critical point where we blew a golden opportunity to take over the NFC-N. And if Trestman played Cutler because he was afraid of hurting the guys feelings or something, then all I can say is the monkey is running the zoo now. The HC has to grow a pair and tell the man he's sitting until he's ready too play. Period.

    I was already depressed about this loss. Then I looked at the Lions' remaining schedule, and it gets worse. They are in the driver's seat in the division.
