Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune tweets that the Chicago Bears aren’t ruling out a position swap that would move center Cody Whitehair to guard and James Daniels (currently listed as the team’s top left guard) over to center.

Makes sense to try something new. I liked Whitehair at center at the time, because the writing was on the wall that slauson was going to be cut, and Cody was the best guy to take over at center at that time.
But that was then, and he has not exactly been lights out.
He needs to play, but it doesn't necessarily need to play the center

Wanted it last year, but it was too tough for a rookie to be expected to take over and make the calls.

I'm so tired of seeing our linemen getting dicked around. Put them at one fucking spot and let them develop and hone their craft!

It would make some sense to let these two go to their natural positions. I agree in general with not moving guys all around, but if HH thinks they should swap back to their natural positions, it makes sense.

Exactly. Put them in a spot and leave it. If you don't make this switch last year when it was supposed to be a "rebuilding" year, why make it this year when the the window is as big as it's been in more than a decade?!?!?

Whitehair is more prototypical Guard, was a guard and tackle in college and was drafted as a guard, he was stuck at center due to severe need at the time due to injuries and backups sucking hind tit. He has done OK, but his shotgun snaps are very inconsistent.

Daniels is more prototypical center and was a center in college but was put at guard and did well as a rookie eventually when he was put in.

I can understand not wanting a rookie at center when you are putting in a new offense, grooming a young QB and want your line calls correct.

If HH says it is the way to go I would call it close to Gospel.
