    I was feeling pretty good about this game until I watched the Giants last night. They sacked Cutler 9 times in the first half and he left with a concussion.

    Our O-line has not been the best at preventing the D from getting to Schaub, what do we have to do to make sure we don't have the same problem?

    I watched the game last night with the same concerns. The Giants were going through the Bears line like it wasn't even there. Now, I don't know if the Bears have a good line, a crap line, or what but I do know that we need to prepare for this. The part that worried me most was how easily the Giants seemed to stuff the run. We have to be able to run on them to keep them off Schaub. Being able to run the football will win that game.

    I think most of the 11 sacks have been Schaub's fault. He needs to get rid of the ball quicker. Well, maybe not most, but I think he can do a better job. Plus, if we run the ball effectively we can keep them from coming after Schaub with reckless abandon.

    That system is why Cutler got roasted.

    They don't have max protect schemes. 5 receivers every play. it's why Kurt Warner got destroyed before he left STL. Mike Martz is going to get Cutler killed.

    To be fair though, Cutler did hold on to the ball a little too long on a couple sacks. Also though, the Bears didn't try to establish a run game. Texans no doubt will do the opposite.

    Matt Forte is always stuffed though. Look at the other RBs who have played against the Giants. They did well.

    Yeah, a lot were Schaub's fault. Three out of the four sacks against Dallas were Schaub's fault. He should have ran for a close first down or threw the ball away.

    Yeah most of those sacks were on Cutler. The Bears also don't run enough. I think we have to start out running the ball against Giants. We have to keep it close so we aren't forced to pass. And for the love of god, keep the pass routes short.

    Giants rushed mostly 4.

    Cutler was the cause of most of his problems. He held the ball way too long trying to waitl till someone deep was open, instead of taking the open short receivers.

    Agreed. Cutler was very, very bad in the game last night. He was being selfish looking for the big play every down rather than hitting the man who was wide open.

    However, I still think we've got a tough task ahead. The Giants have been a Jekyll and Hyde team so far this year too. Which one will we get?

    He will. Two to go. We're missing Brown pretty good right now. I'm unbelievably concerned. We have got to run run run all day long. This is the game where we really need the old Owen Daniels. I also expect a bunch of dump offs to Slaton and that scares me a good bit. Next week is gong to suck. At least their offense is a joke. Takeaways is the name of the game.

    Their O-line has been in dissaray without their LT williams. As you can see Butler is killing it at LT for us. Our O-line has become a strength instead of a liability and Schaub should be able to call protection for himself better than Cutler did.

    We have better receivers, a running back that can block, and a better left tackle. I think we should be ok.

    This.

    In addition to establishing the run game we need Schaub to play sound football, find the open receiver quickly and take whats available.

    I'm also expecting that we'll see a fair amount of screen plays to slow down the giants DL.

    It seems to me that Schaub did a better job yesterday of getting rid of the ball. I can recall at least three times he heaved it out of bounds.

    My concern is that our secondary will cause the joke to be on us.

    I REALLY hope that a 56 in the mix will change the dynamics of this defense considerably.

    My main takeaways concerning the Giants DL after watching yesterday's game:

    1. The Bears OL is terrible. A few of the sacks were off of players rushing in completely unblocked. Just too much confusion on that line. They had sack issues vs Dallas too, but Cutler had a great game.
    2. Cutler held on to the ball way too long. Granted many of the WR routes were too far downfield to have enough time to develop, Cutler repeatedly opted to ignore his checkdown man and just take the hit.
    3. The Bears have nearly no sign of a run game. They have been going empty backfield a lot this season, and even when Forte does run the ball, he's averaging <2.5/carry. And if you aren't running the ball effectively, then you can do what the Giants did and just pass-rush like mad.

    But I gotta give some credit where credit's due. 9 sacks in the half was nice.
