JWebb named NFL’s Defensive Player of the Week
on Sep 14, 2012
After a horrendous showing at Lambeau Field Thursday night, Bears left tackle J’Marcus Webb was named Defensive Player of the Week by the NFL, even though all other games this week have yet to be played. Although he plays offense, Webb earned the award based on his contributions to a Packers defense that sacked Jay Cutler seven times, forced four interceptions, and hit or hurried the QB 40 times during Green Bay’s 23-10.
“Well I guess it’s nice to win an award for JWebb Nation,” said Webb, referring to his fan base of roughly 15 people. “Maybe next week I won’t get repeatedly abused by anyone on the Rams like I was by the Packers and my own quarterback on Thursday.”
The only player Webb could seem to block was his own quarterback, as after one of the teams three and outs, he refused to let Cutler back onto the sideline. Teams all over the league are on the lookout for the six-foot-eight, 330-pound death machine of a lineman.
“Did you see the way that guy tried to block?” asked Vikings DE Jared Allen. “I can’t wait to line up against him twice this season. I might get named Defensive Player of the Week by the end of the first quarter.”
