    No. Booker, then it goes back into the 70's

    Wow Booker started? I know he had 100 catches but that was one of those years where a shitload of receivers did...

On the one hand, the offense has generated more than 2 touchdowns only once in the last 7 games, on the other, the sack rate on Cutler in particular has drastically improved. If Cutler can improve his level of accuracy to his normal 61% career rate, a place he was at after the Seattle game, I think this team can make some noise.
    Cutler's been awfully inaccurate lately and a lot of it is due to his footwork. He's all arm right now and hasn't been using his lower half, he hasn't squared his shoulders. Even on simple short routes he's throwing behind his target. He's been terrible.

    The offense has been stuck in a rut pretty much the whole season though.They've shown nothing all year, even with better protection as you pointed out. I hope you're right though.

    If you look at the last game the receivers are responsible for 50% of that 1-11 run.

    I was worried that he would regress back after Martz was gone with his footwork and he has. But how can you really work on it with that line.

    What is Jeremy Bates' job? Just simple things, like a slant - you can see he just wings it. You watch almost any other QB in the league, terrible line and all, and you see at least the simple ability to square the shoulders. You don't see that from Jay, he's missing all over the place on some of the simplest routes.

    Jeremy bates ain't going to tell jay ****. That's why jay likes him, that's why jay hated Martz.

    Congrats to the Bears players that made the Pro Bowl. I think that Briggs should have made it, also.

    The LB position is gonna be pretty much stacked with pass rushers from now on.

    In the 4-3 scheme, you would it would be hard to find a better OL than Briggs.

    Yeah but they don't categorize them by the scheme they play so of course if some dude racks up 15+ sacks he'll get in over Briggs. Besides, Greenway blows him out of the water aside from the TD's.

    Greenway is probably the only one that is better.

    Greenway's miles ahead. I was reluctant to say that a year or two ago, but he is.

    Cutler pretty much does what he wants. That's probably part of the reason you don't have top offensive coordinators wanting to come here. Hopefully he shows up Sunday and the playoffs should we make it.

    I thought Briggs played well enough to earn a spot, but I can understand why he didn't make it.
