    I agree. Cutler is going to have some bad games, but we would be 1-3 instead of 3-1 if he had not delivered in the clutch in the 4Q of those 3 games. Matt Schaub blew the game against the Seahawks with a stupid pick-6 today. But he will win some big games, too. Cutler is still the best Bears QB I have seen in my 50 years as a Bears fan -- warts and all!!

    Our biggest problem is no pass rush. I don't know if there is a solution, but I WILL blame the coaches if they don't experiment around to find one. Blitz with Briggs and Williams. Bench Shea and try Cornwash and slide Wootton to tackle on 3rd and long. Would that work? Hell, I don't know, but we all see that what they've been doing isn't hacking it!

    That's interesting that you brought that up JABF99. I suspect you are or were a police officer?

    It really is time to experiment with that D line. After 4 weeks of weak play it's time to do something fast.

    Meh. Get up, dust yourselves off, and get ready for the Saints. The Bears offense, and in particular, the offensive line, were affected by the crowd early and often. Jay and Stafford both started rusty, but the Bears were unable to adjust to the high percentage plays the Lions were throwing their way. Defense didn't do as bad as advertised, and this is obviously a case of the offensive line having a hiccup as it's getting together. Mistakes begat mistakes, and eventually desperation. Saints have a decent defense, but we're at home, and their 3-4 front isn't that fearsome.

    Jay Cutler has a horrible game. No way around it. But the defense played shit poor as well. The Defensive line sucked, the special teams sucked, the coaching sucked this game as well. Be honest, everything sucked.

    Cutler may get the majority of the blame, but the whole team shit the bed this time around

    For me Benj, I'm just trying to sort out what is "fixable" this season, and what isn't. Some stuff, like the OL, is going to be 100% fine. I actually was encouraged by the OL play, even though they got owned at times. You could see that we have talent there, that will be fine.

    The DL though is a talent issue. No fixing that mid-season. So, I'm thinking if that is the case, then how bad will that be for the team this season. My thinking is that this is a serious problem. Bad DL = Bad Defense for 2013. Melton isn't coming back this season. Pep has lost a step (he isn't suddenly bad, but he's not the player he once was). We are crapping ourselves if we think the remaining cast is going to magically become studs this season.

    Cutler is the worst issue. I don't think he can be "fixed" - ever. He will always be a good QB in most games, especially against weaker teams. But he has a fatal "head problem" in some games. He actually loses games that are winnable. The game today was against a good opponent. I've been saying that here all week. But this game, in spite of the "D" problems, was winable. This was a game that would have been won - except for Cutler's play. He gave the game away. This Cutler problem is an old one. I don't believe he can be fixed. What we see now, is what we have in him. It's not going to get "fixed" during the season. In fact, I think this may be Cutler's last season in a Bears uniform. We aren't going to win a Super Bowl with a guy who wets the bed in big games.

    That's my 2-cents worth anyway :)

    This defense has taken a major step back!!! Cutler blew it today for sure but i'm still going to back him because he is still the best option. The special teams always seems to give up that one big play a game as of late. Also i cant remember the last time I have seen a Bears team that was this bad at tackling. So far I am not a big Mel Tucker fan but i am willing to wait till the end of the year to see how this Bears team finishes. I never expected the Bears to march to the super bowl this year but I do expect to see some major improvement offensively and in the player development area. Next up Drew Brees and the Saints with a much improved defense. I hope Mel tucker can figure this shit out by Sunday or were going to get LIT the F up.
