2. Can DeMarcus Walker win a good matchup for the Chicago Bears?
One of the biggest disappointments from the Chicago Bears' first game was DeMarcus Walker. The Bears signed him to be an impact free agent, but he was a big issue. We knew he was not the best pass rusher, but he was pushed around in the run game as well. Was this a waste of money, and is there a reason why this was not the most praised signing?
If he does not show up in week two, we have to have a serious conversation. The right side of the Bucs offensive line is an issue. Cody Mauch is a rookie who looked up and down in his debut. Mauch comes from North Dakota State, so this has been a big jump for him. He can be beaten. At right tackle the Bucs are rolling with Luke Goedecke. He struggled at guard as a rookie and was benched. Now, the team is trying his second position in his second season, and he was not looking good in week one.
Still, Bucs fans see DeMarcus Walker and think this will be a bounce-back for Goedecke. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears need to see Walker be the one who is bouncing back. Can he?
