    Both Cutler and McCown have had career years in Trestman's system. Really hate the Cutler vs McCown stuff that is going around here, because it is real simple, Cutler is the starter and McCown is a hell of a backup. I think if you are a fan it comes down to one thing either you like Cutler or you don't, and everyone likes McCown, because it is such a feel good NFL story.

    As for McCown in his last three games, he was 1-2, the loses against two lst place teams, then came Monday night against a horrible Cowboys team.
    I just think McCown is a better decision maker. Cutler has been in the league a long time and at this point it's highly questionable if that leopard will ever change his spots.

    I can see why the Bears would stick with Cutler for the playoffs, but if he has a bad game against a good defense the screams will get louder. I think this offseason the Bears have a big choice to make. They would be crazy to give Cutler a mega deal to stay. He's simply just not worth it, especially with a guy like McCown. The Bears need to start investing in the defense again. A good starting place would be to find a space eater at NT. I like Paea, but he's not a NT, he should be playing the 3tech.

    It actually comes down to money.

    McCown wont command much.

    While Cutler will likely seek 14-20 million a year.

    Thats what it comes down too.

    They don't have the best offense when Cutler starts. This game could get ugly if the Eagles jump to an early lead.

    On the AFC side, I will be watching to see if Baltimore, Indy and Miami win out. If that happens, the result will be: 1-Denver; 2-Indy; 3-NE; 4-Baltimore; 5-KC; 6-Miami.

    They really don't look that bad in most games, they just lose close a lot. They lost by 1 to KC, in OT to SEA, 3 to AZ, 3 to IND and 3 to NE.

    They can upset anyone it seems especially at home, they just haven't yet.
    In the last three homes games they have lost to the Jags and Raiders.

    Anyone can win on any given week but this game and the Raiders one should not cause many problems.

    Too many people over-react because of the SD game. Lots of teams have looked bad on Thursday night because of the short week

    SD already beat them in KC, and are playing really good football right now.

    Probably wont make the playoffs but they can play for pride, and Rivers is a competitor.

    But I do think they'll get the win in SD. They look good now but SD is not consistent. Indy seems not to be playing as well now that they've clinched the division, so I do think they win out.
    Colts still have a shot at a bye.

    I think if its a 3-way tie with Indy/NE/Cin at 11-5, they'd get the 2 seed.
