Why I don't mind this loss


Well, you never like a loss, but our squeaky win over Carolina bothered me more than this, and this wasn't anything like our loss to Green Bay.

We played well, overall, and if Cutler doesn't go out i think we win this. There was a lot of bad luck (fumble bounces), poor officiating, and backup quarterbacking, and we were still in position to tie or win against a VERY good team. In particular, the line held up well, and receivers were able to get open occasionally (even if they dropped a ton). On D, we held them to few points, made the right adjustments against the run in the second half, and had good pressure at times.

There is plenty to nitpick about (stop running Forte up the middle, when he's so explosive on the outside), and I'm usually incredibly pessimistic about the team (glass half empty and all that) even after wins, but in this case i think we can go away, if not happy, at least not too upset.

Assuming, of course, that Jay comes back healthy next week.
