The performance of de facto rookie receiver Kevin White in the 23-14 loss to the Houston Texans may have been a reflection of inexperience and a lack of NFL time. May have been.
His broken route led to the third-quarter interception that was the turning point of the game for the Bears, and he continues to have hands that can only be described as suspect so far.
The story said the concern is Jay Cutler’s confidence in White, specifically how much of it Cutler may lose if White does not pull out of his shallow dive, and fast. Two of the three passes Cutler directed to White in the first half were incomplete (Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal, Zach Miller and Jeremy Langford caught all of theirs, by comparison). The story added that Cutler went over a quarter and a half without targeting White in the second half of the game.
