Bears Mon Oct 04 2010

Footballic Ramblings: Cutler Concussed. Bears Fall Apart.

Yes, count along with The Count. Nine times, Cutler Bot 5000 was sacked (ah. ah. ah.)

This game was awful. Just. Awful. Cutler knocked out --be it by actual concussion or shame and bruised ego, who is to say. The petulant Cutler would not at all surprise me by feigning a concussion merely for the sake of his delicate psychological self. 9 sacks of Cutler. 10 sacks of Chicago quarterbacks. "Todd Collins, we hardly knew ye."

Unbearable Stats:

  • 10 Sacks.

  • Two Knocked Out Quarterbacks

  • Six! Six! First Downs!!

  • 0-fer on Third-Down Conversions.

  • Three Turnovers

  • 110 Total Yards of Offense for the Bears

  • 2.1 Yards Per Play for the Bears Offense

  • 2.2 Yards Per Carry for Matt Forte

  • 26 Rushing Yards for Matt Forte on 12 Carries

  • 13 Weeks Since Chicago Had a Rushing Touchdown

Cower Sons of Chicago. This is your plight and your doom when a defense comes equipped to handle your porous and pathetic offensive line. This is what happens when Cutler has no escape. Concussions, fear and losses.
