It was, but not the call
All the roughing the pass calls were correct, they hit Cutler high. Cry much?
As many penalties as points :doh:
The single best decision Lovie Smith has ever made, was bringing in Martz. Something twinky Vermeil and I agree on. The reason Bears players are so high on Martz, is his confidence and willingness to take chances. A great example would be the pass towards the end of the game, which was designed to bring in a PI call against a defense that was making dumb mistakes. Martz is like a chess player, who likes the challenge - and not many DCs can play an entire game of chess with Mike Martz. Green Bay's DC certainly isn't one of them. The call worked, and while many haters will look at it as a bad throw by Jay Cutler - I assure you, Cutler was only doing as he was told. Sure, it could have failed, but that's Mike Martz. And that's what you get when you bring a guy like that in. He's one of the best in the game.
Martz is a gutsy guy - if Chicago can somehow convince him to stay, Chicago's offense is going to be scary good in 2011. That is, of course, Chicago makes the postseason. If not, the entire staff is out the door. It was a great win, and an expected one, at least by me.
Jay does still hold onto the ball a bit too long, and looks for the deep ball way too often. He needs to fix that.
the packers committed most of the penalties that were called. there were only a couple that shouldn't have been called. having said that, the bears were lucky to escape with a win. the packers almost intercepted cutler about 15 times. he was hitting the packer defenders in the hands more than his own receivers. if these teams played 10 times on a neutral field, the packers would win 7 or 8 times. this may have actually been a good early season loss for the packers so that they can work on a few details to get better (and maybe trade for another running back).
Awesome win last night!!!! :icon_smile:
It was definitely great to see Devin Hester return to the land of the living as a punt returner again!!! :icon_cheesygrin:
Not maybe, badly. Kuhn and Rodgers had more rushing yards than Jackson. He was only effective as receiver in the screen
