(ESPN)   "Cutler, for the record, had the same number of touchdown passes Monday night as the Packers punter, Tim Masthay". Which would be zero, because the game was on a Thursday, but it happened then too   (espn.go.com) divider line 54

Rodgers also only had one TD pass. There are plenty of ways to make fun of Cutler for that performance, but that was a really stupid one.

Yeah, can we please not make cutler haters out to be mob mentality idiots? We have a lot of legit reasons to hate him.

I'm convinced that his offensive line is a team of trained killers. Marshall had a case of the dropsies, too.

I think his offensive line was trying to get him killed. The pocket collapsed almost instantly after every snap. I'm not sure when I noticed, but I think it was halftime and Cutler had seven passing yards.

Fantasy football hilarity--in our league we draft individual defensive players rather than team defenses. My opponent this week has Aaron Rodgers. However, I have Clay Matthews on my defense. I honestly never thought that a defensive back would score more fantasy points than Aaron Freaking Rodgers. I'm still giggling.

Fact: I saw the fake FG touchdown and, not having checked who my opponents had in their lineups, said "well, I must be up against the Green Bay DST this week."

So I check, and damned if I'm not up against the Green Bay DST. F*ck fantasy football.

You're right - defensive backs are people in the secondary. Matthews is in no way a defensive back. I mean, I could MAYBE understand it if we're discussing coverage linebackers, but Matthews is on the line 90% of the time rushing the QB.

/only time I played IDP there were DBs, LBs, and DL

Cutler was plenty bad last night, but the offensive line was worse. It didn't help that Forte went out early in the 3rd either.

That said, losing a divisional game on the road doesn't doom the season. As long as Forte's injury isn't serious, I think the Bears can bounce back. The defense played really well on short fields; holding Rodgers to 219 passing and 1TD isn't anything to scoff at.

All said it was a bad game for the Bears, and GB deserves bragging rights until December, but I think CHI is still a good team. There weren't any fatal flaws on display last night; the better of two good teams won at home, as they should.

Thinking back to his days in Denver, I don't think I've ever seen a good game out of Cutler during a night Primetime game. Turns on the lights and he goes down the crapper.
 
2012-09-14 11:43:03 AM
Another dumb one from NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert: "I really only have one thing to say about the first half of this game.

The highest-rated passer in this game is Packers punter Tim Masthay, whose shovel pass to tight end Tom Crabtree on a fake field goal has accounted for the only score of this shockingly defensive-controlled game."


Given that the pass went down as 27 yards for a TD, Masthay had a perfect rating. Masthay, unless he attempts another pass, will be the highest-rated passer in the NFL and will have a higher rating than every QB in every game this season, in all likelihood, and no one will have a better rating. So that "thing to say" doesn't mean a damn thing.

Umm, are people really pretending that the Packers looked 'good' last night?

If it wasn't for the fake FG and a questionable INT ruling, that game could have gone the other way.

Both teams sucked last night, the Packers just sucked less.

Jay Cutler became Mr. Irrelevant as soon as he joined the Bears, continuing a long tradition of quarterback futility by the Bears.

There was that one at the end that bounced off the turf, but hey the refs were tired and who's gonna review a 4th down incomplete that's a turnover on downs anyway?

There was a guy at the bar wearing a Cutler jersey, so in the fourth quarter I sent him a Shirley Temple.

Neither defense "sucked" last night; while the Packers had the dropsies again, and minus one horrendous "route adjustment" aside from James Jones, the Bears deserve credit for keeping Rodgers from going downfield at all.

S(imilar)SB

Went to a bar as a couple with our Rodgers Jerseys on. Everyone had a pack jersey except one guy witha grossman jersey. In the fourth we played darts with him and promised we wouldn't try to catch them before they hit the board.
 
2012-09-14 12:12:12 PM
Oh, and the fact the front four were getting pressure on Cutler all night helped, but I give Dom Capers credit too for realizing that his "exotic" blitzes, which almost never f*cking work by the way, were unnecessary last night, and let the Bears get clowned by his base defensive packages.

Yeah, that one was double wrong (maybe, I realized it was 4th down so I didn't really care whether it was an INT or not and didn't really look closely at the replays) but hell, calling it an INT helped the Bears (cost the Packers yardage) - and if they called it a catch, then he sure as hell wasn't down by contact and should've had a TD.

Killer Cars: Neither defense "sucked" last night; while the Packers had the dropsies again, and minus one horrendous "route adjustment" aside from James Jones, the Bears deserve credit for keeping Rodgers from going downfield at all.

Rodgers will pick apart most defenses who do that. The reason the Bears can do it (and why the 9ers did last week) was getting consistent pressure with the front 4 and keeping containment with LBs. Not many teams can do that. By the end, when the Bears D-line was worn down from being on the field all day, Rodgers started connecting more consistently

Michael Bush is an excellent running back, the Bears won't be screwed like last year when Forte went down. This was a freak injury, though, high ankle sprain from someone landing on you...(shiver) Forte should be back after a month or so.

The interesting thing is that the TD should be an offensive TD, not Special Teams TD. It was probably the 7 sacks and 4 INTs that hurt

I watched the game with my brother who is a Detroit Lions fan, he was pretty excited at how weak both offenses looked, thinking that the Lions could take the division. I had to remind him that they struggled against the Rams

I'm convinced Cutler's doucheyness has an adverse affect on any team he may join. When you have to work with the officeteam douchebag, doesn't it adversely affect your output? Even when said douchebag has 'always been nice to me", he's still a douchebag.

Since you brought it up...

Here are the guys I had starting on my fantasy team from the game last night and their scores. Last week's scores are in parentheses. Why I am I posting this when I know no one cares? So we can all laugh at my failings as a fantasy GM and I can feel a little better about the absolute ass-stomping I am going to take this week. Also, you may think the points are wacky, but it is a PPR and PP Completion league, so 200+ points is the norm.

QB1 - Rodgers - 34.76 (69.52)
WR3 - Marshall - 4.40 (28.90)
RB2 - Bush - 10.80 (20.40)

The only real change I would have made was starting Beanie Wells or Pierre Thomas instead of Bush. No way would I have not started Marshall, but I could have slotted in Miles Austin, Dwayne Bowe, or Michael Crabtree, if I were a time wizard.

Best part is the guy I am going against got 26 from GB's D. So he has over half the points I do and I have already played 3 of my highest scoring slots, while he only played his second lowest. FML.

Agreed. I wonder if there has every been a more unlikeable player in professional sports than Jay Cutler.

Barry Bonds was pretty widely disliked - the press hated him, opposing fans hated him, and some teammates hated him. Giants fans, for the most part, liked him, because he was one of the best players in the game and gave them a better chance to win. But he seemed to revel in the experience of winning and playing baseball.

Bill Laimbeer was hated be all of his opponents and fans of opposing teams. But teammates and Pistons fans all liked him, with maybe a few exceptions.

But Cutler seems like he almost makes an active effort to alienate opponents, teammates, fans and opposing fans. And he acts as if he hates being out there.

I honestly couldn't care less about Jay Cutler or the Bears but, wow, I really don't think I've ever come across a more unlikeable guy in all of sports. I'm sure I'm forgetting some people, though.
