J'Marcus Webb

According to a new article Chicago Bears starting left tackle J'Marcus Webb is not among the worst pass protectors in the NFL.  According to a three year study by ProFootballFocus, Webb does not make the list of worst in the NFL.

The list rates the 15 worst offensive tackles in the NFL over a three year period.  Curiously Webb is left off the list, providing hope that perhaps Webb is not as bad as initially thought.

In order to qualify for PFF's list, a player has to have taken a minimum of 1,000 pass protection snaps during the last three seasons.  According to single year pass protection lists, Webb would qualify for the list.

Although Webb has only been in the NFL for two seasons, that would not seem to disqualify him for making the list of worst pass protectors on the list.  Anthony Davis of the 49ers made the list, and he was drafted in 2010, same year as Webb.

While Webb has made the list of worst pass protectors in the NFL by PFF ratings in 2010 and 2011, he's absent from the overall three year list.

According to PFF's two year total for Webb, he's spent 1,080 snaps in pass protection during his first two years in the NFL.

As a RT in 2010 Webb ranked as the worst in the NFL in pass protection posting a pass protection efficiency rating of 9.18.

The question now becomes is Webb missing by mistake, or is he missing because he legitimately is not among the worst 15 pass protectors in the NFL?
