    Bears lost three players yesterday. Two for at least four weeks... Tillman, is injured but still playing (dont think he will miss time, but an injured Tillman hurts the team) Two others have been lost for the year.

    I'll say Cutler, but Briggs is pretty damn huge. Cutler was on a career path minus a few hickups(including yesterday), but Briggs was a beast yesterday, and although the D wheels were all flat and unhinged yesterday, the minute he went out the wheels completely came off, rims and all. The team is now down 2 pro bowlers, has 2 probowlers over 30 and playing hurt. The D NEEDED Briggs at a high level, and now has him out 4-6 weeks.

    Still Cutler is a bigger loss, not just for the next few games, but for the potential impact it could create going into next season and beyond.

    Bushrod's quote said it all yesterday when he said "We lost our leader" today. Briggs is a huge loss too. He was the leader on defense.

    I'd with Cutler. Cutler can make the 4th quarter comebacks I'm not sure McCown can.

    Briggs is a leader and have played really well in this season prior to injurie but I still think Cutler is the bigger lose because he is the bigger playmaker. But it's really 50/50 because we need them both badly.

    I think Cutler will be the biggest loss. Obviously the D will suffer with the loss of Briggs, but it won't matter what the D does if the Offense doesn't put up points and while McCown looked good yesterday, I've seen him play well for one week before, but I don't think he'll be able to do it consistently enough for us to stay competitive.

    Cutler of course. Everytime Cutler goes down the whole team falls apart.

    The defense sucked with Briggs calling the shots. Don't think it can get any worse.
