The guy didn't say he would be the 5th safety off the board he said that webb had the 5th best passer rating as a safety in the country. Trust me the kid will run sub 4.5 I know this for fact so I'll take that bet.
So your faulting him for playing behind a great defensive line when Hooker,Lattimore and Conley basically played behind the same one? Also you say he not physical enough to play in the box you must didn't watch him play last year against Wisconsin, Penn State, MSU or TTUN. Actually at the next level he'll play free safety which is his more natural position. Webb IMO has proven he can play from the middle of the field to either side of the hash marks which was evident in the pic he had against MSU and the pic they took away from him against Penn State. From my understanding he 4.4 at the OSU combine training in May so........
I’m not Damon Webb II and I’ll leave it at that lol,lol...I feel your passion though. We on the same page it’s all good. And your right let’s win the Ship and it all starts in two weeks !
Well show me where in the last game he’s made a handful of mistakes. And him not being better then the last 4 years of safeties is matter of opinion. Those safeties to my knowledge were not asked to play man coverage 10-12 yards off the Wr. Also those safeties weren’t asked to play closer to the line of scrimmage against bigger TE’s and still maintain outside leverage. Von Bell and Powell played more cover 2 than anything when we had Apple and Durant. I totaled disagree on the fact that Webb plays more snaps cause he was the only returning guy, what sense does that make. Less not forget Webb was the starting Nickle his sophomore year and battled Conley to the end of summer camp the next year so I wouldn’t even compare Bell nor Powell to him cause it appears that Webb was more versatile than both. Does that make him a better player not saying that. So I take it in your eye site he hasn’t made any good plays if I’m not mistaken you even called the few interceptions he’s had weak...wow! Never heard a person criticized for the bad and had his Good criticized too !
I don’t see why that would occur him and Fuller play different positions and from what I’ve seen Webb never really leaves the field nor does Fuller. If anything Whoever plays Nickle might lose some snaps but I don’t see that happening either.
So Webb leads the team in tackles and picks and you rip him because he took one bad angle GTFOH! You say iyour getting tired of watching Webb why? he’s the consensus leader on the back in. Coach Meyer has even said he is good and is the most consistent player on the back end. Obviously the Head coach and Schiano have confidence in him. He has taken the most snaps on the defensive side of the ball. I’m all for criticizing a player but in this case your totally wrong!
I think Webb will have a great year, the game should slow down for him this year as a returning starter his leadership on the back end should be invaluable. Smith and Fuller are ready to rock and roll should be a good mix!
Would you quit being so anal....smh!
Don't see Webb moving back to corner that would leave no experience at the safety position. I do see Sheffield playing opposite Ward though. It wouldn't surprise me to see Coombs rotate 4 corners this year Ward,Sheffield, Arnette and Okudah with one of the latter playing the nickel.
My guess is Webb will start the whole season will probably be a lot better since he has one season under him as a starter. I don't see Fuller beating out Webb if he couldn't do it last year what makes you think he will this year?
I know yall probably don't care but the only remaining starter in the secondary besides Lattimore who will probably declare is staying (Safety Damon Webb) for what it's worth!
I'm curious as to know when talking about Webb do any of you who have commented take in his whole body of work? Or do you just count the passes that were completed on him. I say this to say what about the plays he defended pretty well. If I'm not mistaken Carr the WR caught 8 balls none for scores. He also added 7 tackles which was third on the team. Do you even look at the scheme the secondary is playing some of those completions were on routes that he had know chance to cover just because he was 10/12 yards off ? Now has he been a world beater no! From what I saw he played solid didn't get beat deep and when he had to play man in the red zone held his own quite nicely. They 7-1 not playing great but playing decent. If your gonna mention the bad when it comes to any of the players mention the good also if there is any.
Where did you see Webb's coverage problems ? I thought he played solid for the most part especially when it counted. Although they gave up a td pass I would give the QB credit on that one for hitting the wr in the seam between Webb and Ward.
Eric, I'm curious to know why you think Webb will be moving to safety and not competing for the open cornerback spot opposite Conley considering he was the starting nickle for most of the year and played more than Lattimore and Ward.
I believe the coaching staff has very high confidence in Webb playing the CB2 this year. I see either Lattimore or Ward taking over the nickel spot.
I can see Webb as CB2 with Lattimore or Ward as the Nickle. Although they will compete in the spring I give Webb the advantage cause he has played more in the past.
I like the Webb boys
Offense Weber- I'm hearing baby Los is hungry and is ready to eat.
Defense Webb- Having been the 3rd corner for the last year I think he chomping at the bit to man that corner full time.
Defense- Dante Booker
Any word on Webb playing more nickle or some corner he looked pretty good out there?
I like Webb in the rotation at the nickle and also to possibly back up Grant at the boundary corner.
Exact opposite Campbell is more passer than runner saw his high lights he slow as malasses lol,lol great arm though.
