Let's defer judgment on whether Rachal is an improvement for Bears offensive line

Chicago - September 19, 2012 - My thoughts on the Chicago Bears offensive line were that the Bears had better get the recently-signed Jonathan Scott ready to take over for J’Marcus Webb on the left side, and I was hoping that Chris Williams would get moved back to guard to replace the clearly overmatched Chris Spencer.
Remember that Spencer was a first-round draft pick of Tim Ruskell in Seattle, and now that the Angelo/Ruskell nightmare team is gone, the Bears can be free to admit the mistake.
The Bears did make a move, but not one I had hoped for in moving Williams back to guard. Instead they have benched Spencer and replaced him with backup Chilo Rachal. A move had to be made, but I will defer judgment on whether Rachal is any improvement. If we thought he would be, why did he only start three games for San Francisco last year before the 49ers let him walk? Time will tell.
And by now everyone has heard that nickel back D.J. Moore has apparently criticized college and pro teammate Jay Cutler for the quarterback’s outburst against Green Bay. Of course the 'real' media is all abuzz with the latest development.
It was when I was listening to Moore’s comments that I remembered that he and Cutler played together at Vanderbilt as well.
The media will make as much as they can out of this, but to me it’s no big deal. This will be forgotten if Cutler can win a few big games. The only thing I see coming out of this is Moore getting sat down by his coaches for speaking out, then we’ll see Moore won’t say a damn thing to the media again.
