"A Tale Of Two Cutlers" - which one shows up this week?

The one that dominated the season opener against the Colts and scored 41 points, or the one that throws 4 picks and gets sacked 7 times.....

Rams riding high after their *ahem* "win" last week, but I just can't see that continuing this week. Also, the Rams "D" line is certainly not the same as the Packers - and strong pass rushers seem to be Cutler's Achilles Heel. Plus, I'm sure the adjustments were made on the O-Line too.

Sorry Lambs, don't get me wrong, you've looked fairly impressive so far - but I think this is where the wheels fall off.

Bears -9 (or whatever the line is at gametime)

Don't let me down Jay!!!!!!!

If Jay has time, (which he should) look for the long ball like week 1. Marshall and Jeffries should have big games. RG3 torched 'em last week deep. 

Bush will fill in just fine for Forte. (Bush actually has better numbers in a lot of categories minus receiving).

I don't see St. Louis putting up many points. The run game will be shut down early and Amendola will not have another career game. Let's not forgot what the D did to the Packers last week with much more fire power than St.Louis could dream of having. They're old but still get it done and will create turnovers. They held GB to 6 1st half points. The td was scored on a sp. teams trick play. They got worn down a bit in the 2nd half but to be expected after the futile play of the offense. They remain the backbone of this team... For now. Turnovers will be in the home team's favor. 

Speaking of home teams, this one isn't played in one of those comfy domes. Welcome to grass and elements St Louis. Not to mention, a very enthusiastic Chicago crowd at home that will be roaring. The weather is changing and the wind may be a factor as gusts have reached 30 mph today.

I have Bears at max bet -6.5. It should be a good day to be at Soldier Field with extra rest. I look for a Rams let down and will put money on them elsewhere with more points another Sunday. 

As far as the locker room, Jay always has been and always will be a jerk. I see little bearing on that in this one. 
31-13 Bears.

Rams dont seem to have a pass rushing offense that would discombobulate Cutler.  But that being said I'll take the nine points.

Rams +9  

Chicago has moral issues as evidenced by crybaby Cutler. The bears get rammed in the behind.

I get the Bears at home and the Rams a dome team but,if you watch bradford last week,this boy is throwing well and you can throw on the Bears.Bears should win but have no business giving these Rams a TD plus as they didn't quit at all against the Redskins.

401 STL +7 (.5u) - more of a anti-Cutler-push-the-OL-man bet

I'll take the 9pts gladly with a surprisingly good looking Rams squad, VS a struggling team to get cohesive with alot of emotional baggage.

Let's see the protection Cutler gets this week, should be interesting.

RAMS +!!

Anyone have trends on Cutlers next game after a "freak out" the week prior?
