    This was on J'Marcus Webb's facebook page:

    I'm not gonna jump to any conclusions, other than I'm pretty sure this came from the coaches on down. This is making it really hard to back the dude if he is the weak link early on.....

    Sounds like he got some unwelcome news from Kromer. Like..."your work habits have to improve and your job is far from secure".

    If so, frankly long overdue. Webb lived a charmed life under Lovie. How many 7th rounders start from the get-go and all 3 years with little if any real competition? And how many face so little consequences for repeated poor play and mental lapses?

    Camp Lovie is over, J'Marcus. Earn and hold your job this season or ride the pine and expect to not be offered a new contract.

    Wonder if he was told that he would not be the starter. Damn I wish even more we had kept Carimi

    Well by all accounts The RG and RT have looked like pooh since camp started regardless of who was playing.
    I did hear one good compliment about Webb though, they said he easily stood up Peppers on a play on Friday playing the LT position.
    The kid has the physical tools, he just doesn't seem to have the drive to put in the work to make it in the NFL. Maybe Kromer or Trestman sat his ass down, sounds like someone did.

    It shouldn't take a wake up call from outside for someone in the NFL, especially now in a contract year. Says a lot about where his head is (either up his ass or in the clouds).

    Having said that, I still have much hope for him to hang at RT just fine.

    I'm all for it if that's what happened. Trest reportedly has little tolerance for pre-snap penalties and Webb has been the master of jacking up the snap count. So maybe he's seen that and knows about JW's well deserved rep for mental laxness. When he focuses, you're right he's got the physical tools and can play pretty darn well. But all too often he looks good for a few games and then suddenly plays like he just toked up huge right before the opening kickoff.

    Yeah, he needs to take his job more seriously, get off twitter, stay away from fast food pig-outs, and stop making cheesy T-shirt ads. His career is on the line this year and he doesn't have papa Lovie here to coddle him anymore just because they're fellow Texas boys. Buck up and buckle down.

    Webb's got a short time to undo some bad habits and get his act together. I think he'll be lucky to be the swing tackle at this rate imo.

    I thought it was odd that Scott was the replacement for bushrod early on, but they obviously had reservation about letting him have reps anywhere else other than RT.
    It has been said over and over that he has the physical tools,but he was coddled. This is exactly the type of wakeup call that he needs.
    Hope it makes him a better player.
