Webb has been good for half a game(Lions), not very good(Eagles), Awful(Bears) and Horrible(Packers) in his chances with real game time.
After 3 years, if you still look like you shouldn't step on an NFL field, it's time to go, sorry. In the NFL, you can't afford to wait 5 or 6 years for a guy to "get it"
I've changed my mind on this, I wouldn't be against getting him some reps at WR. He can't be any worse than Aroshamadon't or Jenkins.
He's a big guy with a TON of athletic ability... I mean, we desperately need help at WR.
I think we should trade him to another team where the coaches figure out what to do with his amazing athletic skills where he goes on to become a star in the NFL and a future HOF player. That way we can look back as Vikings fans and once again say..."If only".
I could find zero negative comments about his ability as a WR that weren't linked to PP.O. I did find a couple of decent positive nuggets though.
During the 2007 season, Webb saw extensive action, playing as a wide receiver, starting seven games and finishing the season with 30 receptions for 459 yards with three touchdown catches.
He took about 20 snaps at WR in 2011, all of them in that dumb ass Blazer formation, so it is impossible for us as fans to truly evaluate him at the position.Quote:
Here is a breakdown of Joe Webb’s Pro Day performances:
Bench Press (reps of 225 pounds) – 21 (best by a WR at combine was 20)
Vertical Jump – 42 1/2 (best by a WR at combine was 41 1/2)
Broad Jump – 11 1/2 (best for any player at combine was 11)
20-Yard Shuttle – 3.91 (best for any player at combine was 4.03)
40-Yard Dash – 4.43 (among WRs at combine, Webb’s time would be 5th fastest)
The only thing I can say is that the coaching staff felt he was a better QB than WR, if that says anything...
