Now that’s decisive. Following another poor performance Friday by J’Marcus Webb, he of the world-beater body but egg-beater approach to professionalism, rookie Jonathan Mills has been elevated to starter at right tackle. If the change sticks, on opening day the Bears may have two rookies as starters on the right side of the offensive line.
A lot could still change. The fifth-rounder (Mills) could prove ineffective. Webb could get the message and shape up his act (but in four seasons this hasn’t happened.) One thing is for sure, the new coaching staff isn’t pulling any punches with this player. Which is refreshing.
