Against the Bengals Tillman was poor in coverage against AJ Green. Well he gets an even better all pro receiver this week in megatron..
I'm hoping Tucker is smart enough to play Over on CJ the whole game. Hopefully with Stafford not being mobile when we do blitz he isn't going to slip the net like Big Ben can.

I can't decide if our pass rush was much better last week or that was just the Steelers awful line making it look good. I guess we will find out this week.

We found out all right

Shocking, simply shocking

Cutler was awful (understatement)

Horrible game. The scoreline completely flatters us.

Cutler was poor. Took too long in the pocket for the sack/fumble/TD AGAIN didn't protect the ball like he didn't against Jared Allen and the Vikes. Two of his 3 picks were ridiculous pass attempts.

I'll be positive too....

Jeffery had a good game, and Peppers finally showed up aswell this season.

Need to address a few things at practice this week or the Saints will kill us next Sunday.

Bears were 2nd best the whole game.

It starts with the D-line; dominated 4 games in a row. If you can't stop the run you can't defend the pass; this will be a problem all season by the look of things.

Good Cutler needs to be in his happy place... or bad Cutler comes out. Every bad trait Cutler has showed up: over-thrown pick, fumble a long time after the ball should have gone.

I'll say it again, it all starts with the D-line. If you can't trust your Defense, you can't be patient on Offense; it is exactly why Cutler stinks it up against the Pack.

We've got the talent on Offense to improve; you can't have 2nd and long, reasonable gains on 1st down increase your options on 3rd down.

Alshon is the real deal.

Improving on Defense is another matter though. If you are simply not good enough up front there is little you can improve on.

We have to beat the Giants and Skins, no excuses.

overhauling an ageing defense may take some time (and money) - mind you we did it with the O L to an extent
