Funtional??? LMAO.. if the function of the line is to let the qb get killed.. then.. YEP.. functional it has been.

Instead.. hes slow off the ball. and holds his guy all the way to the qb.. that is.. if he even gets a hand on him beacuase hes doesn't realize the damn play has started half the time.
Carimi.... This guy is injured... his knee gives him ZERO lateral movement. The movement needed to pass block. He can run block pretty well. Thats why they like to run off right tackle a lot. He has the ability to push forward, but the knee slows him on his lateral slide step. That is why he keeps getting false starts. He is trying to compensate for lack of lateral movement and keep moving early.
The guards and center.. are servicable at best but when your book ends are soooo bad.. you need to help them.. which takes you off your responsibilities and you end up getting beat. I give the guards and Center a pass for now just because of that reason...
Which brings us back to JAY. The record speaks for itself. The numbers speak for themselves. This guy is on pace to break all of the franchise records in about 7 years. (not saying much because bears passing records have stood for 60 years.. LOL) His starting record in the last 12 games he has started and finished is something like 12-1. (not an exact number but pretty close) Does he make STUPID plays.. YES!!! but for every bonehead throw.. he makes 2 amazing ones. Does he hold on to the ball too long at times.. YES.. and NO... Sometimes it just looks like he does because the D linemen are in his face almost immediately. And yes.. sometimes.. he does.. but.. Jay is suffering from what many qbs who have been just pounded go through.. Hes a fraid to step up in the pocket... and rightfully so... he is the most sacked qb in the nfl for the last 3 years. Id be afraid too.
Give this guy an O line.. PLEASE!!!
Am I saying Jay is Manning.. or Brady.. or Brees or Rogers... NO!!
But he takes a ton of completely undue critisism. I was watching the packers play last week and they showed Rogers on the bench.. by himself... pouting... and nobody sais anything... But if that was Cutler.... OMG!!!
I wish this guy would just have a shot to prove himself a little better. Thats all I ask.
