Packers-Bears II: JWebb Nation, stand up
By Kevin Seifert
The Chicago Bears didn't practice Wednesday because their beat-up roster needed an additional day of recovery. Clearly, however, their players' mouths -- literal and virtual -- are unaffected.
We've already discussed receiver Brandon Marshall's challenge of the Green Bay Packers in advance of Sunday's game. Let's also note that Bears left tackle J'Marcus Webb, who like Marshall had a rough game in the teams' Week 2 meeting, is promising a big performance Sunday.
Via Twitter, Webb said:
You'll recall that Webb was part of a Bears offense that allowed seven sacks in that Sept. 13 game. Webb was responsible for two of them, according to Pro Football Focus, and played poorly enough that quarterback Jay Cutler bumped and yelled at him in frustration on the sideline.
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, who had 3.5 sacks in that game, practiced Wednesday and could be in line to play for the first time in more than a month after straining a hamstring. The JWebb Nation could have its collective hands full.
