Default Defense needs to play better (Cant believe I said that)

Never thought I would say that. Collins and Cutler had there way IMO. I think we have one take away and 1 sack in 2 games thats not going to work. Seem like Cutler had all day back there tonight.

I totally agree. There are a lot of threads blaming Reed and other factors (rightfully so), but not a lot of people are talking about how flat the defense was as a whole. This is more then just Troy being out too. Especially today they looked very slow and just not themselves.

I think they will bounce back, and they played OK overall. We're just used to and expect the amazing D we had most of last year. Still, this was not one of their better ones.

I thought the Defense played fine. They held the Bears in check most of the game and we had a chance to win.

Reed's first miss really turned the game around. The bottom fell out on the second miss.

Considering Troy was out, I thought D did rather well. You could almost feel the dynamic had changed without Troy though.

Cut the defense some slack...they more often than not hold up their end.

I was very disappointed in the defensive scheme or lack there of. I don't remember Cutler throwing a ball more than 5 yards the whole game and we were still playing off of the receivers and tight ends. What ever happened to press coverage. Their TE's caught about 20+ balls between them, were our DB's afraid they would get behind them. Maybe this is the kick in the Ass the team will need to get them going. It just looked like Chicago wanted the game much more than us. Oh well, there is a couple of bright spots to this game, our running game statrted to get on track and we didn't lose to a divisional opponent.

Translated= No Troy !!!

Defensively he brings so much to the table and allow LeBeau to unleash more exotic schemes. No Troy, we have to scale back. The defensive struggles today can be most attributed to that. We're gonna miss the kid the next few games.

What about Ben's interception (not all his fault) and two missed field goals, Santonio not making catches, etc.......................
There is plenty of blame to pass around.
