This argument seems to permeate throughout Bears circles, on Bears message boards on my twitter feed that it will be an OT selected at 19. I go over and over the reasoning behind why the Bears won't draft an offensive tackle at 19 but it never seems to sink in. The argument or points in the argument typically goes something like this
J'Marcus Webb sucks the Bears need to draft an offensive tackle
He allowed Jared Allen to give up three sacks
Pro Football Focus says Webb allowed 14 sacks on the season
Pro Football Focus says Webb was the second worst LT in the NFL
Webb gets beat like a rented mule
Webb is a turn style
Anyway you get the idea I think I've covered the majority of the arguments. What's lacking in those arguments however are a few points. My points which I'll cover primarily blame Mike Martz which a lot of fans won't like because fans liked Martz.
Each and every time Mike Martz has been a play caller in the NFL, except on his offense...
