Disappointing Bears Effort
Too many mistakes to win. The offensive line was weak. Cutler was sacked 7 times, but at least four of them were coverage sacks - Cutler has to throw it away. Clearly, Jay Cutler was terrible - you cannot throw late especially across the middle Jay! The play calling was debatable, but there were drops and poor execution by a lot of players. Brandon Marshall dropped a fairly routine TD. A couple of critical penalties (Carimi's unnecessary roughness and the 12 men on the field stand out). The D was pretty good but fell asleep on the fake field goal and Briggs dropped an interception - which were costly errors.
The Packers were better. But as bad as the Bears played, I still think they are a good team. They just made too many mistakes tonight. It was going to be tough going into Lambeau and winning. They have to get to work and get things straightened out. If they can beat St. Louis at Soldier Field in the next game then things will be fine.
