Why Chicago Bears' Chris Williams Will Be Fine

Nicholas FischContributor IAugust 25, 2010

Many Bears fans across the country are worried about left tackle Chris Williams's performance. Remember, this is the same Williams who, eight months ago, with the help of Greg Olsen and former Bear Jason McKie, kept Jared Allen without a sack on Monday Night Football.

Now, the Bears have a blocking tight end in Brandon Manumaleuna and Dez Clark swung out at fullback. The Bears did not offer Williams this support against Kamerion Wimbley on August 21st. Wimbley, known as a sack specialist throughout college, was a first-round pick in 2006, and is another player considered a "bust" after being traded from Cleveland to Oakland in 2010. He's fighting for a job, just like Williams should be.

But since Tice guaranteed Williams's spot, there may be lack of motivation on his part to improve.

Williams will improve this year and be the left tackle the Bears hoped for when they drafted him 14th overall in 2008. He will also get a lot of help against sack specialists like Allen and Vanden Bosh this year, Bears fans, so don't worry. Yet.
