I am soooooooooooooo sick and tired of people blaming Jay Cutler for Bears losses. The "so-called" Bears fans that like to post comments about the Bears, are nothing more than fair-weathered, whiny little bitchy "fake" fans that know absolutely NOTHING about Football! And, AGAIN, CUTLER IS NOT A PU**Y!! Over and over again, he shows how he stays in the game when he is not 100%. RANT OVER!
This was a pretty good game by two average teams. This was also the first time Detroit swept the Bears since 2007 and with Green Bay losing, Detroit is now the team the beat in the NFC NORTH.
Marc Trestman and the Bears medical staff should have taken Cutler out earlier than at the 2 minute warning of the 4th Quarter. It was obvious that Jay hurt is other groin, although they keep saying it's his ankle, and by leaving him in there, there were many throws that he made that did not make it to the target....It's hard to push off on a bad groin and ankle.
Some reasons why I think the Bears lost this game: 1) The offensive line did not play well with regards to the Running game. Forte had no holes to run through. 2) 4th and 1 from the Detroit 27 in the first half of a tie game, you KICK THE FG!! Instead, they went for it and failed! Always take the points in a tie game! Greedy, greedy, bastages! Those 2 reason, in my opinion, are the reasons we lost this game.
So, with 2 minutes left in the game, Trestman decides to pull Cutler and put McCown in. He takes us down the field for a TD to make the score 21-19. The Bears go for the 2 point conversion but fail.....but, wait! Penalty on Detroit! Re-try! So, what do we do? We try to run the ball, which hadn't worked all game and......... FAIL! The on-side kick also failed and that was the game!
On the defensive side. our defense FINALLY played well....or played better than they had! But, at the end of the day, it's a loss.......it's a loss to Detroit and it's a loss at home! NOT GOOD!!
