Well, from the recap, it seems like the word that will stick in your head will be “annoying” because that’s what the Bears were in this game. I thought Cutler should have sat out this game too but he continued to prove to his critics that he isn’t a pussy. We get it. Cutler is not a pussy and has never been one. However, if he isn’t 100%, he shouldn’t be out there. This isn’t the argument of “Josh McCown is better than Jay Cutler” because he isn’t, the thing is, McCown is better when Cutler isn’t healthy. It was a must-win game (as they all are) but this one, sucked ass. The Bears must have a better record than the Lions to win the division rather than have a tie-breaker. The Packers lose but they still have the same record as the Bears. Things are looking bleak.
Offense: Annoying. Numerous opportunities. Trestman fucked up quite a few times. The Lions gave the Bears every chance to win this game with a whole bunch of penalties but the Bears also bailed them out with penalties of their own. McCown finally gets put in on the last drive, gets a touchdown and then, another bad call by Trestman. He’s done more than good for this team this year but this game, the plays he called weren’t all that great.
Defense: Hey defense, you see that big guy wearing #81? Yeah. Go after him. In fact, stick two defenders on him. He scored the touchdown that ultimately, won the game. By the way, Charles Tillman. Yes, you. Good job with those face mask penalties. You’re making a habit out of that. Well hey, Chris Conte actually played well today. Too bad he couldn’t score a touchdown.
Special Teams: Nothing.
Next up: The Ravens at home.
