Webb progressing, according to Tice
Bears left tackle J’Marcus Webb looks like he’s had a rough season, particularly of late. But offensive line coach Mike Tice insisted that Webb is “having a good year.”
“Last week I thought he had a little bit of a setback,” Tice said. “He struggled a little bit in the pass protection. He’s been blocking extremely well in the run game, especially on the backside of runs. On the backside of runs, he’s cut out the backside of the defense, time and time again. The whole season.
“He’s developed into a solid run blocker, and an excellent run blocker on the backside. Which is what we do. Pass-wise, he got beat inside on that first third down, and he kind of went into a little funk, I couldn’t get him to snap out of it, It was some technique things that fell apart on him. I look for him to bounce back and have a good, solid game.”
All in the family
Heading into the final week of STATS National Fantasy Football Championship, brothers Michael and Joseph Treffiletti are vying for the $100,000 top prize.
There were 322 teams, with the entry fee at $1,400, and Michael holds a 9.69 point lead on his brother.
So today, on Christmas, they’ll be fighting for $100,000.
“Not counting the year our house almost burned down because of the chimney fire, this will be the most eventful Christmas we’ve ever had,” Joe said, according to Yahoo! Sports. “There hasn’t been any trash talk, just cautious nervousness.”
