When Chilo Rachal got the start this week over Chris Spencer, it didn't really come as a shock to the football world, especially to fans of the Chicago Bears.
Spencer was certainly sub-par last week against the Green Bay Packers, and to say that offensive coordinator Mike Tice was furious with the play of his line would be an understatement.
It was clear that a change needed to come to the left side of the line, and it isn't that surprising that Tice left current starting left tackle J'Marcus Webb in the starting lineup for Sunday's game. Tice has been high on Webb since training camp began, and it doesn't seem likely that Webb will be pulled from the starting job before Sunday.
Putting in a veteran next to Webb helps to protect Cutler's blind side; last week the Packers attacked that side all day, and it showed.
Now that the Bears have legitimate help between Webb and Garza, the big question is, how well will Rachal perform?
The man he is going up against, Kendall Langford, is not a standout player by any means. He has yet to record a sack this season, and has only one tackle so far this season.
However, with the way the offensive line played against the Packers, there is no room for slacking. If Rachal can perform, the job at LT is his, and the Bears will be well on their way to winning this game.
