    I would say Cutler.. If it wasn't for those 3 picks they could have won.

    The whole f'n team. Horrible game by Cutler, too many drops by the receivers, no pressure on Stafford, LBs and secondary embarrassing.

    Wake up, Chicago. It's gonna be a long way to the playoffs.

    3picks and a fumble returned for a TD by the Lions. He was just horrible in that 2nd quarter. Turning the ball over and delivering 3 and outs. We've gotten way too used to the Bears D holding every game close and scoring pts and I think Cutler and this offense have also gotten to used to that. At some point this offense needs to start leading the way, as opposed to always expecting the defense to keep it close.

    How can you not blame Cutty for this lose? Yes there are some goofy things that could of should of would of affected the game but it didn't. No one can have that many bad throws in a game and still be in it in the end.

    This could very well be the game where the Bears brass realize that this guy is just too inconsistent to be a franchise quarterback. I'd really like to see Jay succeed but he's not making his self any future money with performances like today. This team has had a lot of problems with evaluating qbs through the years. Jimmy Mac wasn't pretty but he sure got the job done.

    No, the D has not played up it's former level despite keeping most of the players. The major changes are Urlacher and Marinelli. Urlacher might have helped in getting players in position, but DL pressure is on Tucker (IMO). So far Tucker has not impressed me.

    Yep, it was a team loss, but I think qb is one position they have to take seriously next draft.

    DL.
    JC.
    Coaching.
    Missed tackles.
    Penalties.

    More or less in that order. I voted the entire team. DL doesn't get any pressure, doesn't seal up the lanes and gives up too much yardage, lions score a couple times and JC starts slinging it all over trying to get back in it. Coaching deserves a BIG share of the blame. Where was the urgency in the 2nd half? the team needs to work on the tackling skills.

    JC. - J.H.C. can you settle down and quit with the double cverage throws?

    Podlesh had a shitty line drive kick inside the numbers that no coverage team could defend. Otherwise ST was ok.

    The D got gashed by Bush in the first half but rallied in the second. Stafford and Megatron were held in check. It's wasn't a good D performance by any means but it wasn't terrible.

    Jay Cutler lost that game by regressing back into the same dysfunctional QB he often was pre-Trestman. He missed easy open throws. He brain farted his way into sitting back there for avoidable sacks and a sack-fumble. He tossed ducks off his back foot. He turned the ball over 4 times and couldn't convert a 3rd down to save his life. It was classic BAD JAY. No excuses. He played like Sanchez.

    Cutler now has 1 game this season w/out a Int, against a horrible Pitt D, Det is actually 18th in Pass D and they owned Cutler today, This is all on Cutler, he had the time and he did what he did all last year, threw into double and triple coverage and held onto the ball to long.

    That was Jay from last season. He was hearing the footsteps and played into their hands. It's embarrasing because the team is better than that. Stafford had all the time he wanted. Their o-line owned our front four. Pitiful.

    I think a big part of Jay's problem has been that he doesn't know when it's time to give up on a play, pitch the ball OB, and move on to the next play. That killing fumble/TD is a good example. He held onto the ball WAY too long. That invites disasters. On interceptions, he sometimes forces passes, although I think the last one was an overthrow when Jeffrey was open. BTW, Jeffrey had an excellent game today. The OL had protection issues -- 3 sacks, 6 QB hits, and numerous pressures. That contributed to Cutler's errors.

    Nice game from Peppers. Unfortunately, his 1 sack and 1 QB hit were ALL that our DL had all day. McClellin was totally shutout. If he is not getting to the QB, he's a big liability against running plays. They were just ripping holes for Reggie Bush. I would like to see him benched. Cornwash did get into the game today for one series. That's a start!

    Our OL owned their DL also TB, but the difference is that Stafford took what the D gave him, and Cutler didn't, he forced it to where he wanted to go.
