I realize, the clock is running, and Jay needs the play in ASAP as the Q.B. and the leader, BUT....In a meaningless FIRST PRE-season game, and after all the $ Chicago threw at him, he's still got the attitude?

Not that a crap attitude can't win a S.B., but it sure doesn't make him loved as a teammate or player IMO.Supporters here will scream that 'body language', demeanor, etc. don't impede performance, and that Brady, Manning, etc. have outbursts too.However, those Q.B.'s are generally liked/ respected by teammates and fans alike, while Jay continues down the path (or image) of the whiny, doesn't care, po'd person that most outsiders think of him as having.Still pulling for him and our Bears, I just don't think he'll ever put it all together as the true leader we all hope him to be. I hope I'm very wrong..

Jay's job is to lead the offense. Part of that is time management. The Bears have had problems since he has arrived with getting play calls in on time. If I were him, this would be a major source of frustration for me as well.
Personally, as much as I have criticized Jay's inability to stay healthy and win a big game. I also used to criticize his inability to come back but that has been completely eliminated.
While I don't think he has matured as quickly as everyone expected, he has been put into REALLY shitty situations that were out of his control. Having to run so many different offenses over his career has really prevented him from taking the next step.
The sky is the limit for him and I like what I'm seeing with Trestman.-mM
