    It IS a problem, because he plays like **** for the first half, guaranteed. You're really missing the point, if you think that how poorly this offense performs in the first half (I'll give you a hint, it's part of the problem with such lopsided TOP in the game), and tries to make it up in the second half. ESPECIALLY in the Saints game, this was evident. The saints effectively "gave up" a lot of plays to them, allowing them to score, but in a "prevent D", which is designed to stop the big play, so that the offense has to burn a lot of time with the smaller plays, losing a chance of actually coming back.

    Are you serious? I think the accident outside my house was caused by Jay. Global warming got be because of Jay.
    Is Jay also playing defense to because that mantra is getting old fast. What you are saying now sounds exactly like when Lovie would spue "we get off the bus running. "

    Again...you are trying to make a correlation that doesn exist.

    "He plays like crap the first half." debatable, but fine. that still does not explain why scoring in the second half is a PROBLEM. The two things are unrelated. If he played well in the first half and STILL score more in the second, would that still be a "problem?" Of course not. your issue is with first half play, so stop trying to claim that stepping up and playing better the second half is somehow a "problem" simply based on first half play. (of course now im going to have to dig deeper and bust out some stats on this issue, so...fair warning.)

    IMO, it's not that the offense's 2nd half performance is a problem, it's just that it comes too little, too late to make much of a difference in the game.

    Yeah having a lead with a couple mins left in the game is to little to late.

    4th quarter comeback points aren't a problem but if you get them from what a defense is giving, scheme-wise, you're being led by the nose which indicates there's problems elsewhere...

    How about first quarter adjustments instead of halftime?

    Yes, they are related. It takes him time to learn how to read each defense, each game. It's at the 4th quarter, that he's "getting it". Basically, Jay Cutler is mentally a bit slow, for reading defenses.

    Also, I don't understand how you think that the defense being on the field for the majority of the time isn't blamable on the offense, in the slightest. Your impression is that I think this is primarily the offense's fault, which it isn't, it's that Cutler does nothing to help in the first half, and the defense DOES get gassed early, because of it.

    Bears have the win in their pocket in 4th quarter all the D has to do is hold on one of the upcoming 3 down sets. Can't do it Jays fault. This D has great alibi for their inefficiencies.
