Twitter can certainly be a dangerous avenue for professional athletes. (Hello Matt Garza.)
With social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook, professional athletes are now being monitored 24-7 365.
That may not be the best of things if you are a former seventh round pick in the NFL still trying to prove that you are capable of being a starting offensive linemen in the NFL.
That would be you, J’Marcus Webb.
If Webb put as much effort into his performance on the field as he does on Twitter, then it is possible that there would be no debate of whether or not Webb is capable of starting in the NFL.
But this is Webb that we are talking. The same athlete that believes in a self-created Webb Nation.
That is not to say that Webb does not have potential.
Webb clearly has potential based on his 6′ 7″ 333-pound frame and the fact that he has managed to impress the new regime of the Bears to the point where he is expected to be the team’s starting right tackle.
For Webb, something may have finally clicked–not on the playing field, but off the field.
Webb presumably signed off Twitter for the foreseeable future with a tweet that he posted on Sunday night.
I’m going dark. I won’t be on for awhile. I need to prioritize, change up some things and make better choices. Peace.

No word on why Webb is taking a hiatus from Twitter, but hopefully by prioritizing, the offensive lineman means focusing on what he does on the football field.
