Chris Williams Looking to Stick at Left Guard

You probably didn't need me to tell you that. But the Bears have a lot riding on Williams being able to take a hold of the left guard position and play it ably enough. After his inconsistent play last year, according to Brad Biggs, Mike Tice gave him a checklist to work on when camp began.

 

Williams didn't complain about being bumped from left tackle, and he has attacked a checklist Tice game him when camp opened. His to-do list was topped with improving his footwork. When he went to punch defensive linemen last season, he occasionally would lift a foot up, opening an alley to the backfield.

"We're seeing what kind of player Chris can be now that he has had a training came at guard." Tice said. "He's playing with confidence." 

 

I think Chris has the ability to play guard if he fixes a few of his flaws, but he also has to know free agent acquisition Chris Spencer will be hunting for playing time, especially if Garza holds the center spot. Even without Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora, the Giants should still be a test for the line, and we should see a much better performance than whatever that was on Saturday.
