This time, he did something spectacular with 2 of his carries, but they otherwise they could not run the ball and didn't appear to have any desire to try, despite having a somewhat comfortable lead most the second half. It's almost like they got Buzz Cutler Lightyear for Christmas and have thrown Woody Forte under the bed so they can play with their new toy.
I only hope that they get their heads on straight during the bye week, and maybe as the weather gets colder that will help as well. Otherwise, this week's performance will prove to be a fluke - he needs more opportunities.
Honestly my man, I am seeing the next Marino's out there right now in Cutler and Rivers. They want to win but they want to lead the win. I don't think the Bears have ever been even a good offensive team but they always ran the ball and fairly well. Now tehy have given up on some of that but even some plays where Forte is the #2 option Cutler forces the ball or look past the #2 to the #3 downfield option. I see the same thing wiht Rivers.
All kinds of records for QB's like this but no rings.
