Whether or not Webb should have been the choice for backup is moot at this point. Let's look forward...
Was listening to Schein and Gannon on Sirius this afternoon...this very topic came up. Schein, in response to a caller, said he liked Webb as backup this year and, endorsed it for next year. Gannon countered by pointing out that "you should always try to improve the QB position." He went on to state that he thought the Vikes should bring in someone that could challenge Ponder... After which, I texted him, "I completely agree. I like Ponder, but, he needs competition AND experience if he is going to get any better." Gannon's reply, "no doubt."
Webb does not provide competition, he has charmed some fans and seemingly the coaches into this "change of pace is good" mentality. At this point, I don't care if the Vikes keep Webb and MBT...but, I'm convinced, and am hopeful, that they bring in a Free Agent or a rookie to challenge Ponder. I think it makes the Team better, and, hopefully, Ponder.
Regarding moving Webb to WR...I agree with Gannon. At this point, it's more than likely too late.
