J’Marcus Webb got some rest Friday, had a good meal.
And the whole no sacks and locking up a starting job didn’t hurt, either.
The Bears left tackle had a solid night, and while they haven’t made an official declaration, it seems he has a starting job secured, something he’d still like to hear.
The Bears first offensive line, long a trouble spot, didn't allow a sack of Jay Cutler in a 20-17 win over the Giants.
“I got a good nap in, and I’m feeling pretty good now,” Webb said after the game, via Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times. “I have to look at the film, and in addition to the chicken, the shrimp and the pasta [I ate], it really made it a good night.
“Man, that pasta was . . . nah, I’m kidding. I would like some resolution, but you know, that’s not up to me. I feel like I keep working hard and playing the way I’m playing, and everything will work out on its own.”
Webb has been involved in a competition with former first-rounder Chris Williams, but seems to have distanced himself in the preseason, and a clean sheet against one of the best lines in the game helped.
“[No sacks] was definitely a good sign,” Webb said. “You definitely want to move the ball up and down the field, work as a unit that feels good and strong, and then come out with the win.
“I think we did a solid job, but just got to look at the film. Can’t give you anymore than that right now.”
Along with a nap and a good meal, it’s hard to ask for any more than that.
