Is this unexpected? The Bengals and Cardinals games last year both made me sick. This game ranks up there with them. I don't know if it can get much more pathetic on offense. Does the offensive line have no pride? No run blocking and no pass protection. What do you get paid to do? Get penalties, make sure the QB gets sacked or fumbles the ball. Here's your check. Spend your millions. And KNOW you're worthless.

Throw The Ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Throw The Ball!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Block!!Throw The Ball Jay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sure Brando it's all Cutlers fault, you keep telling yourself that.

Try run the ball to protect the QB, oh wait can't do that. Try not doing 7 step drops when your QB is getting killed. No don;t want to do that either. Open your eyes, Cutler was hurt long before he came out. He was running and looking the wrong direction at times, he started walking to the wrong sideline, and they sent him back out. Remember when they showed him being checked on in the first half? They sent him out hurt and he got hurt worse. Why don't you think about that for a second. Even Collinsworth started wondering if something was wrong with him 5 min before the half.

Open your mouth this week and see what happens. Don't you ever try to tell me about football again. I told you and everyone on this board about what would happen with that offense. I also told you what would happen when the defense faced a decent line that knew how to run. Be glad they took a knee at the end of the game.

2 QB's in one game. Is that Cutlers fault too? Moron.

wm,

Pride has nothing to do with the O-line. There is no talent. Blame Angelo and lovie for not drafting qualified players or acquiring good players via free agency. Those two do not know anything about evaluating players. Its a crap shoot with them every time.
It's you fault for not seeing this coming. Anybody in their right mind so problems at both lines going into this season with no quality wide outs. Now you see what happens when you don't have those elements.

ACCOUNTABILITY, O.K. Jerry, you and Lovie are holding players accountable for their play ? Fine, I hold YOU accountable for the concussion to Cutler and for the poor excuse of an o-line you put together to protect him. Rob Simms was available, remember ?But NOOOO, the only former Seahawk you were interested in was your buddy Tim.If you had ANY ability to judge talent, the organization would'nt HAVE to spend all this money on free agents you MORON !!

Creighton, val I interpret the harshness and it is warranted. But Brando and wm statements are valid.

After Jay was sacked the fifth time, I saw the look of discouragement in his eyes. If paying attention, it was obvious he had given up. I can't blame the guy. What the heck, you keep getting hit and the running game is not working either, it will make a QB despondent.

Some of our offensive players who were to be starters are hurt, but the back-ups should do a better job than what happen last night. This is why the game is played with an attitude. Smack the other guy harder than he smacks you. Why the O-Line is not performing at this level is more than talent. This is the NFL! It takes heart to roll over the other team, especially when your QB is getting his butt kick.

The O-Line line did not get pissed, mean, nasty and start moving the Giants defense back down the field off the line. Especially after our QB got knocked out of the game. We all know, if you hit the other guy harder than he hits you, the confidence level goes up.

Jay Cutler confidence left him by the third sack. When the fourth and fifth came he was was just trying to survive. Also, when the others came - well we saw the look on the guy face on the sideline.

Jay has to do one thing when returning, when it is a three and out, communicate with the offensive players by going and sitting with them and not by his self. Go over to the receiving corps and express the route should have went this way or cut it off. Talk with the O-Line, they are his best friends.

I feel for the guy because he is not communicating and getting his butt whipped for that reason.

Overall we are still three and one. Just a really bad game last night and every Bears' player from here to the end of the season should go on the field with a serious attitude of "I'm going to smack the other guy harder than he smacks me!"

Yes, our team was whipped, beaten and demoralized. Now let's see if they can come back and do it to other teams.

Go Bears!!

BTW, when do a coach know when to pull his star QB whom is having a bad day or having the crapped beat out of him?

Lovie, I know men are supposed to be tough and football players are to be even tougher, but you left Jay in too long.

That is a coaching decision. Pull Jay, send in Collins. Talk to Jay to make sure he is alright. If he's okay send him back in, if not he will sit such a game like last night out.

Lovie, please do not state "Caleb Hanie is our quarterback!"

Also Lovie, dressed down the O-Line, ripped them a new one! They got 66.6 percent of the Bears quarterbacks knocked out of the one game - the same darn game.

I'm not going to state the O-Line do not have talent. They do not have a mean, nasty streak. When it is time to get down and dirty, they act like gentlemen. Maybe you need to have Dikta talk to them, because you are too much of a gentleman and it is not working.

Nothing wrong with being a gentleman. Just do it with the wifey, lady friends and other female associates. When on the football field there is supposed to be a certain amount of control anger on the field. The Chicago O-line is not displaying it.

I have been saying this for months now and all along I have been accused of being a "hater" or not a true Bears fan. Well, I want to see all the kool-aid drinking, saturday night live imitating, "fan's" now. That, last night, was an embarrassment!! And to have those weasels Collinsworth & Michaels up in the booth with their girlish giggles and smug "know it all" attitudes made it even worse.

Yeah, a couple of those sacks were Cutler's fault, but what do you expect. After 3 1/2 games, he's shell shocked. The look on his face yesterday was something from the Peter Tom Willis, Henry Burris days. And can we get off the Johnny Knox and D. Hester band wagon. Hey geniuses, if you happen to see your corner or the safety that should be over the top head towards your QB, BREAK YOUR ROUTE OFF!! But, no, there's JK running like he's got a bottle racket in his A**.

And as I said in preseason, congratulations JA and Lovie. In 17 months you have taken one of the most raw talented, strong armed, young, quarterbacks and turned him into a concussed tackling dummy. This falls squarely on their shoulders. Where are all the posts now about what "value" the Bears got with Wooten and Lefevour?? As I said back in late April. "What value is it, if your franchise QB is laying on the turf or sitting on the sideline?" And where was Cutler?

The trading deadline is a couple of weeks away. I would be on the phone today seeing if McNeil is available.

Where was Lovie last night? I know he has been heavily criticized in the past for stupid challenges, but there were 2 occasions last night where a "spot" challenge might have been nice. The first was in the 3rd quarter when the giants had the ball deep in their own territory and Manning hit Smith for a short gain and I think it was Bowman who whirled him around and tackled him. Now, I know the ball doesn't get spotted back where he was whirled around to, but there was no way Smith made it past the 1st down marker. The second was the Jacobs fumble. The only player to touch Harris when he landed on the fumble was Idonije, but the refs spotted the ball back where he first came into contact with the ball. In the first scenario, the Giants went down and scored, and in the second scenario, well, the Bears needed all the yards they could get.


"Former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka said he would have gone ballistic if he had been on the sideline Sunday night when the Bears lost 17-3 to the New York Giants.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was sacked nine times, and Ditka said part of the problem was the time it took Cutler to release the ball."

"I don't think anybody was open down field, because they had seven in coverage, but the quarterback has to get the ball out of his hands, too," Ditka said Monday on "Mike & Mike" on ESPN Radio. "He looked like he was not even aware of the pressure around him.

"That's all part of football, the quarterback has to have that little clock in his head that says 'I have to get rid of the football.' Jay Cutler didn't have it yesterday, that's for sure. "

That was Ditka and his thoughts on Cutler. There was 5 times in those 9 sacks that I counted and seen on the clock he had 4+ seconds to git rid of the ball. I once saw he had 6 seconds and well he got sacked. Yes the O-Line had a bad game but on some of those plays Jay Cutler got sacked and he did have underneath stuff(dump offs) put that isnt Cutler style so it is both ways King Savant Creighton.

Ohh yeah I guess the group of people that I was watching the game with were also morons for thinking why doesnt Cutler throw the ball.

Bad O-Line play and bad running and bad Cutler and Bad Collins and bad WR play just all of it was bad on offense last night Creighton. I dont blame Cutler for the loss heck it was 3-0 at the half so.... Todd Collins and Forte stunk in the second half so did the line it was a group effort loss!

Gearheadboy you hit on the head about JK and Hester. There are so many players who could use a game off for not playing, Forte can't block or run but lets keep him out there. It is time for Taylor to be the feature back and activate Bell while Forte stands on the sidelines. Harris needs to be released, even Collinsworth said when watching film Harris is always on the ground. I don't even want mention the o-line, enough said. Time for JA and Lovie to go.
