    The Good: Cutler is showing maturity and leadership. As others have pointed out, there were some "firsts" in this game for the team under Trestman, and we came out with a "W"

    The Bad: Pass coverage & DL woes.

    The Ugly: We lost Melton, a Pro Bowl player for the season, at a position where we were already thin. Peanut Tillman is fighting knee and groin injuries. He's one player we simply can't lose. The defense already has enough issues without having to deal with "life without Peanut" now. Calvin Johnson will own us next weekend if Tillman isn't playing - and playing healthy.

    The Melton loss is a really big loss. However, Paea now moves to his natural DT spot where he was a beast at Oregon.

    Defense bails out this team again.

    Cutler didn't make mistakes in this one but if it wasn't for the defense we lose this game. Simply didn't make enough plays in the 2nd half.

    I wouldn't worry about the pass defense. Big Ben puts up big numbers on a lot of defenses.

    The same defense that gave up 400+ passing yards?

    You mean the same defense that forced timely turnovers and scored 2TDS and saved us, right? Because that offense crawled into fetal position after Major Wright's pick 6. 10pts from the offense, from that point on, doesn't cut it. 159yds from our QB, against a crap Steelers defense, doesn't cut it.

    So, as long as the defense scores, you don't care if they give up yardage that allows the other team to score?

    News flash. If they cannot stop anyone through the air, what are we going to do when we face a real QB with a real WR threat?

    The defense may have bailed out Cutler and the offense, but they also bailed themselves out. They need to pick up their jocks and figure out how to stop QBs from throwing the ball all over the field

    I think people forget just how good Roethlesberger is. He's not some bum QB. The secondary had a bad game but the defense redeemed itself. I'm more concerned about our offense CONSTANTLY doing virtually shit to help this team out. Game after game, when opponents are truckin the Bears the offense can't be counted on to bail us out. It is a recurring and annoying theme. So much pressure is put on this defense to carry the team game after game. How about Mr. 159yds passing figures out a way to elevate his game and take the pressure off the defense?

    Well, as has been pointed out, the D gave the Bears a short field. Hard to put up big offensive numbers when you have a short field.

    And yes, Ben is a good QB... one of the best active QBs, but he also had an injured hand.

    That dude is always injured. And it shows you just how much better he is than most QBs. Plays through injuries and is still more effective than most QBs that are perfectly healthy. I'm just going to chalk this up to being a very poor game by the Bears D. They took the night off.
