    Jay is making better decisions too. He kept a cool head, and that helps the rest of the team keep calm in clutch situations.

    Though he did make better decisions, Jay had little to do with this one in the 4th. I am a big fan of his, but the title of this thread is off.

    Belief goes a long way. It's contagious too. Let's just not immunize ourselves against it.

    Just so you know. I didn't make up the title. It was the title of the article quoted.

    I will say, that Jay made some solid plays at a time where we needed them to seal the win. Also, a year ago there was a thread about Cutler, as to whether or not he was a leader. I argued that he wasn't much of a leader. But I have to eat some crow here. Jay has been a good leader of the team - especially during crunch time. I've read articles this season, that he's really solid under pressure in the huddle, and our players on offense have said this has been a big help. They feed off of his leadership and poise. It is good to see the positive changes in Jay Cutler. Sure, there is always room for improvement. But I"m pretty pleased with the changes in Cutler this season. Good stuff.

    I have to disagree. If he didn't orchastrate that 4th quarter drive, momentum would likely have stayed with the Steelers.

    Agreed. And especially his 1st down battering ram play. without that play, that drive is over and the steelers grab even more momentum.

    Jay made three HUGE plays on that drive, and likely a fieldgoal would not have stopped the rally from Pit. While we were leading at the time, that drive was just as good as those of the previous two weeks. Jay is definitely clutch.

    Actually it was Peppers who was clutch, sealing the win. Cutler had the deer in head lights look many times in that 2nd half. he made a nice throw to Bennett but the offense struggled with Cutler in that 2nd half. 10pts by the offense in the 2nd half is hardly what I call a clutch performance. 159yds is hardly clutch. Peppers saved our ass.

    I thought Jay had a good game. He is improving with each game. He kept his head on straight when there was pressure. I think we have all been waiting for that. I though he played better than the plays being called, but he followed the game plan.

    So his 7 points were the difference? Take away those 7 points, the Bears still win. Peppers did not save the Bears ass
