I graded Spencer as out best OLmen this season and that is why he is higher than Williams. I like a lot about Williams game, but I do not feel that he is as strong a player as Spencer.
Williams has been a pleasant surprise and the improvement is awesome, but Spencer has been a rock in the run and pass game while playing with a broken hand.
For Williams to be one of the best OGs in the NFL he would have to be a more physical player when the ball is being run towards hims. MOst of our early season big run plays were to the right side, granted with Williams pulling.
Statistical analysis begs to differ, the Bears rank 9th in the league when running between the LT and LG and 25th when running between the RT and RG. Now, granted Webb is a straight up beast in the ground game, but I think you need to look back at the tapes to see just how good Chris has gotten and how big of an impact he's had on Forte. If he's not sealing a block on the inside, he's the first man out of the pull and consistently shows up on tape making big blocks on the second level.
