For instance, if the OL was so bad, why did Jay insist on holding onto the ball longer then just about every other QB in the league? At that point the OL, while a problem is actually worse b/c of the QB, the QB did not help them become better. And Cutlers holding onto the ball was in fact a problem, it's a statistcal fact that he held onto the ball longer then, I believe, all but 3 or so qb's, or maybe 1/3rd of qb's, regardless he's still holding onto the ball to long. Were the WR's a problem, yes, but when Cutler is holding onto the ball before the WR makes their break, he does them no favors, as the catch becomes that much more difficult since the D has already reacted to the break. And that is also a known problem, Cutler wants to throw to an open WR, not throw to the spot the WR is to be. So again the is the qb making an already sub par wr group better? No. so again you have a qb who gets the excuse that the WR's were no good. So in these two instances you can have both a reason and an excuses. The reasons are valid, but to then abdicate any blame of Cutler makes them an excuse; and far to many Bears fans have left Cutler blameless in the issues of the offense.
