According to chicagobears.com, J’Marcus Webb is feeling good about competing for the right tackle position. When asked about the transition he would have to make, he said
“Things happen and you can’t control a few things, but it’ll be a great move… I can play right tackle … I can move my hands a little bit, so it should be fun” Webb also discussed his “improvement” over the last few seasons. “I definitely took a step forward and, like I said, I’m just here to help in any way possible.”
It seems as though J’Marcus has caught the Chicago Cubs virus. He promises success during the offseason, but fails during the regular season.
The only bright side about Webb’s words of wisdom is that at least he is, well, looking at the bright side. He claims to be trying as hard as he can to be a successful tackle in this league. However, it has gotten to the point where I cannot believe what he says. I can only believe what he does. Getting arrested does not show me that he really wants to help the team. It crosses the line. He’s probably used to crossing the line by now, given all the false start penalties he commits. I would have released him. I usually am fairly optimistic, but I am not a believer in J’Marcus Webb, even if he can minimally move his hands. Here’s something to prove my logic; sixth grade math.
On a scale of 1-100, 100 being John Hannah, where does J’Marcus Webb rank on the scale of good offensive linemen? Not only does Webb not play well; he also brings down the performance of others. Therefore, I give him a 0. Now let’s say he got 10, 50, even 100 times better. 100 times zero is still zero. I do not see J’Marcus Webb improving much at all.
I’m sorry for being so negative. I just don’t have faith that J’Marcus Webb will ever be a good player. Hopefully, I’m wrong. I hope he goes out this season and stops almost every defender who tries to get their hands on Jay Cutler. I hope he plays a major part in helping Matt Forte to rush for 1,764 yards. I hope he doesn’t give up a sack in the Bears 35-3 rout of the Colts in Super Bowl XLVIII. However, I don’t see any of this happening. If it does, I will personally buy the man an un limited supply of tacos for life. Maybe he’ll read this and it will motivate him to BEAR DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
