1. Cutler is capable of dialing down his gunslinger tendencies
Cutler averages 7.4 yards per attempt for his career and is always going to be on the prowl for big plays, although Sunday's 6.2-yard average was acceptable since he completed 71 percent of his throws and was so efficient along the way.
2. Learn to live with unimpressive stat lines from Harris
It's difficult to get noticed by Pro Bowl voters when you are only getting one tackle per contest and not making the highlight reel, but while Harris may not be the dynamic force he was a few years ago, he's still a difference maker up front.
3. Aromashodu pulled his quadriceps at the wrong time
Even though Aromashodu was a great story and earned a lot of praise from Cutler for his ability to make plays, Knox has proven he belongs, brings an element of speed this offense needs desperately and seems to be a natural as the No. 3 receiver.
4. Lovie is still selling out to stop the run too often
De facto defensive coordinator Lovie Smith believes in old-school football – running the ball on offense and stopping the run on defense – but is stretching his secondary thin in the process and asking for trouble through the air.
5. Peterson is a better secondary ball carrier than Wolfe
While Wolfe deserves a lot of credit for turning himself into a force on the coverage units, he's never going to be Chicago's version of Darren Sproles and perhaps should have been behind Peterson on the depth chart all along.
