    Re: How I See It: NFC North Stock Watch

    With Frank Omiyale making his first career start at left tackle, and a right tackle rotation of Kevin Shaffer and rookie JíMarcus Webb, the Bears more than held their own against the Packersí pass rush. Quarterback Jay Cutler wasnít sacked after the first series of the second quarter, and the Bears' offense managed 18 first downs and 276 yards despite getting off only 48 plays and holding the ball for 24 minutes, 11 seconds.
    Anyone still question Cutlers talent?

    I don't think anyone who has ever watched him play has questioned his talent.

    I will question his heart, NFL smarts, work ethic and his attitude for a long time ... and it is going to take a lot more than an overrated 3-0 start to change my mind on those.

    Not that it can't be changed.

    Nice to see all the Adrian love out there, but I still feel that too many people are failing to notice the dominance of our defense.

    Our defense has played VERY well thus far this season and is going to keep us in every game.

    I think it is funny how everyone is already annointing the Packers and Bears as the teams to beat in this division when they fail to realize we have the same recipe going as we had in our 2008 NFC North championship season ... same recipe but with much better ingredients.

    I am very happy with the way the offense is willing to ride Peterson's dominance ... and I think that as we move forward and the passing game comes around (which it will) we are going to be in very good shape once again.

    I don't think anybody has ever questioned his talent. He's got one of the best arms in the game. his issue is attitude and leadership. There's a reason that Urlacher thinks he's a pussy.

    I don't think we'll see the int totals we saw last year, as Cutler gets more comfortable in the system, but he's not going to be the kind of guy that puts up huge numbers without mistakes. He'll have his share of mistakes. I see him alot like Phillip Rivers, except Rivers plays the role better.

    Although I relented a bit with the improvement JK brought last week, I still am a bit skeptical about the DL and its ability to get pressure on the QB and to consistently stop the run.

    I think both of those areas are being masked abit by our LB and Secondary play. The latter of course, is a nice suprise.

    I kindof lump him and Vick into the catagory of "Needs to Mature"......

    Best thing about Vick, he seems to have finally matured a bit. I assume young Cutler will over time as well.

    I think our DL will be ok .. especially after the bye and reviewing some of the things that are not working.

    As for the secondary. We don't have to use words like hope and maybe anymore. These guys are good.

    I am VERY happy with Cook after just one game. He is a physical corner and has the speed to jack you and then keep up with you.

    And calling Abdullah a pleasant surprise would be the understatement of the year. He is simply a player and will only continue to get better as he gains more game experience.

    I don't think anybody has ever questioned his talent. He's got one of the best arms in the game. his issue is attitude and leadership. There's a reason that Urlacher thinks he's a pussy.

    I could put Rivers into that same catagory.

    Truth of the matter is, I kindof like a QB who is a bit of a hothead, atleast early on in his career.

    Edit......there is someone on PPO who has questioned his talent. He should chime in shortly.

    I agree in a way, but Cutler isn't just a 'bit of a hothead', he also isn't a leader. He's doing better, but just doesn't seem like the kind of guy to command a huddle, to lead a team and take blame for his own mistakes. Rivers at least does that, Cutler, not so much.
