And it was only 1 game...he's played pretty well on other occaisions. I just wonder how/why he would suddenly look so much worse. I mean were they really so sure that Ponder would play that even Webb was completely shocked he was the starter? Something smells a lil fishy...
But, I definitely agree with "always trying to improve the QB position." And I won't be disappointed if we draft another guy who takes Webb or MBT's spot, but would prefer to bring in a vet presence who can light a lil fire under Ponder's seat, and actually give us a chance to win with our running game and defense should CP end the season injured again.
I've always been a sucker for athletic ability and the dreaded "potential", but you have to know when to cut your losses and move on. It's that time for Joe. Wished it could've worked.
Of course, there are people who will criticize the team for keeping Webb when he was so bad. but then again, these are the same people who would have been up in arms if they had cut him... Guess you just can't win them all.
(Honestly, I think that the coaching staff DID screw up by trying to appease the masses and keeping Webb. But hindsight is 20/20. ;)
Well, if they knew he was that bad and kept him knowing that we could need him any time they should have their heads served on a platter.
He's had one good game, where he came off the bench and almost led a comeback (highlighted by an 80 yard run) But make no mistake, his arm did not lead us anywhere.
Against the Bears, he stunk it up. Against the Eagles, he had a game that would be considered subpar for any other QB. Against the Packers, he flat out sucked. After 3 years, I need to see better. I don't care where you're drafted, or where you played college, if you are on an NFL roster, you are expected to play like you deserve to be there. Webb has not.
