I know I should probably save my ramblings until tomorrow, but I can't go to bed until I air out my thoughts. I'm not trying to come off sounding like a fair weather fan though.
I don't really want to rehash what we already know but some of it I'm going to have to cover, because it just pisses me off. Cutler looked HORRIBLE tonight. Yes he threw only one pick, that was of course on the last drive of the game. The interception monster has gotten a hold of Jay and is now residing in his head on a couch watching TV all day rewinding all of Jays bad moments. He so afraid to make a pick he's overthrowing his receivers. I'm sure we all saw how he's throwing off his back foot and not getting his hips turned or anything. Not sure what Pep Hamilton does but it sure as hell isn't teaching mechanics. I don't really have much else to say about Cutler, he needs to pull it together and try to have some fun out there it's really just painful to watch how he has regressed this year. I don't know what to do to fix it but something has to give somewhere.
Now onto my buddy Ron Turner. Seriously his play calling sucks huge monkey balls. I never have been an offensive coordinator and I realize there are a lot of factors that go into how a play actually comes off to be determined a success. I have noticed the plays he calls do not establish a rhythm or flow at all. The Iggles were all over the screen tonight and yet he kept calling it in all the wrong situations. Middle of the field appeared to be open on occasion as well and we didn't seem to attack it. And if the passing game wasn't bad enough, I had to see Hesters ass on my tv during the replay of his catch.....
Someone needs to tell Forte this is not dancing with the stars, seriously Matt find the hole and hit it, if it's not there don't just run into a pile of 5 or 6 guys and fall down. It was nice to see Bell get that huge run and he looked to be running with a little more heart than Forte. Still overall take away the big run and our run game sucked once again.
The Defense played pretty well for the most part, but again I'm just frustrated with how soft of a D that it is. They did force 3 turnovers but the offense didn't help them out and do much with them. Gaines Adams was a waste of a second round pick, you don't believe me watch Alex Brown match up against the same guys for a lot more success. Run D sucks and we still don't tackle all that well. The absense of Brian Urlacher was all over the Sean McCoy touchdown.
I think it's safe to say that the playoffs are just about out of reach, I think I chances were on life support to begin with but now I think someone just needs to give our hopes a DNR. Time to go back to the drawing board and figure out a way to win a few games down the stretch and try to be competitive. Anyway I've ranted enough, thanks for letting me get this off my chest. Your thoughts on the matter are greatly appreciated.
