Pressing questions for all 32 teams entering training camp - "Chicago averaged just 45 rushes-plus-completions per game, placing them 28th in the NFL. This is the sign of a poor offensive line." To fix this, J-Webb sometimes joined the rest of the OL at their weekly training sessions this offseason.

Matt Forte or Michael Bush near goal line? - Forte is among the NFL's most versatile backs, but he has never demonstrated consistent power running near the goal line -- even when playing in two very different offensive schemes under Ron Turner and then Mike Martz.

Four Downs: Cutler poised for best season? - "Fact or Fiction: By the end of the season, the offensive line will go from a weakness to a strength." Haven't they heard? J-Webb told us he's going to dominate.

Eagles taking another look at Brad Maynard - Former Bear ranked lower than 30th in gross and net yards. Still makes him a better punter than J-Webb is an OT.

Know thy enemy - Unnamed Lions player: "We're becoming the laughing stock of not only the NFL but all of sports." Yes. Yes, you are.
