I've been saying since the very first preseason game against the Chargers that Jay Cutler wasn't going to make it through the season.  I'm not happy to report that came to fruition on Sunday night as the Giants sacked Cutler 9 times - yes NINE times and had to leave with a concussion.  The Giants went on to win 17-3 in a game where the score was not indicative of the beating the Bears took.  They were physically abused at the hands of the Giants.

The offensive line was completely and totally manhandled on Sunday night.  Either Mike Martz didn't have any adjustments or the Bears offense couldn't execute.  They couldn't run, they couldn't pass, they couldn't execute a simple screen pass, they couldn't find the hot receiver.  Simply put, it was the worst offensive performance in recent memory.

Give Julius Peppers and the defense some measure of credit for keeping the Bears in the game.  Even though the Bears had been sacked 9 times in the first half, they only trailed 3-0 at the half.   They seemed to wear down as the game went on and as many predicted, the Giants were more persistent in trying to run the ball and topped 200 yards on the Bears' #1 rush defense.
