08:01 AM ET 08.08 | For now, according to Mike Tice, J'Marcus Webb is the Bears' left tackle. However, Webb is far from overwhelming Tice with his play to this point. He'll need to step forward in the exhibition games. If he doesn't, then what? If the Bears thought Williams was a solution at left tackle, he would be there. It's Webb or bust, with the Bears hoping it's not [Jay Cutler] being busted. "I thought one guy would separate himself and really just jump out there," Tice said. "I don't think that has really happened. ... I'm not in a rush to change for change's sake and we're hoping that a guy in his third year, Webb, will step up and mature as a football player and as a person and get better and show us that this means something to him."

Sounds like the dude doesn't care. It also sounds like there aren't any alternatives behind him.

I guess "Cut him" isn't an option.

A story about an assistant coach and a tackle? T&R are digging a little too deep.

I think you nailed it. Those last cuts before the first game may be the option they are looking for to find OT help.

Jay Cutler doesn't want to hear that his survival depends on somebody else's castoff.

Ware will be looking to pad his sack total in that game.

I'm afraid that's what Jay Cutler may be doing at the end of a lot of plays this year.

Tice dares Webb to 'step up and mature'

Nah, the Chicago Tribune reporter heard it wrong. Tice said "Don't step in the manure."

Comes with the natural turf.

Mornin', Wa-Wa.

Compared to 90% the the T&R stories this is prime stuff. At least it is something that has real implications for the season. Beats the hell out of the usual "unnamed source says absolutely nothing interesting" crapola. And I agree with some of the comments here regarding Cutler. If I were him I'd be concerned and pissed off.

The Bears could have another McKinney on their hands.

His name is J'Marcus....I think J'Marcus/Jamarcus means "I don't care" in Swahili

(its just a joke guys relax...its ok coming from a Black guy!) LOL

I thought Jamarcus meant "fat toad"...

Thanks for clarifying.

Great. Two days after the Bears announce Webb has secured a starting job at OT...
