    Just what I wanted for christmas news that they're considering wasting last years first round pick and starting another mediiocre qb. Webb is not the answer and anyone that has watched him play know his accuracy is worse than t jacks. Seriously when can our team get a legit gm and coach that put together a football team and stop all this gimmick shit. The only time gimmicks work is when your regular play work well enoguh for your opponent to practice against it all week. Ponder has played bad at all and yet considering our line is so crappy its cost us two stars in 5 minute We need an o line before we start worrying about anything. Man remember when we had mckinne hutch and birk? We made gus ferrotoe a pro bowler with equally crappy recievers.

    If Webb plays the way he has been, he becomes valuable to us in another way. Webb is not really the type of QB you want for a backup to Ponder. They play completely different styles. There are two other teams right now that are playing with QB's that Webb's style would fit as a backup. Webb behind Newton would seem to be a perfect fit. Maybe he could become somewhat valuable trade bait for us with Carolina. Although Denver probably will not stick with Tebow, if they do that is another system that could use Webb as a backup without having to completely change their offensive scheme. If I were running either of those teams, I would be taking a good long look at Webb. If you lose your starter it is beneficial to you having a QB that plays the same style as your starter. Just a thought.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Here's another thought. Keep Webb. We've all heard of change up running backs. Why not a change up QB. It seems to work every time Webb comes off the bench. If they're killing Ponder put in Webb and watch the magic. Just a thought. It's hard for opposing teams to adjust once they're prepared for Ponder.

    Yeah Keep Webb, its important to have a good backup and if you can have him come in and run the option a few times during the games, thats just a bonus if it can throw the defences off.. So im all for it, unless someone wants to drop a first rounder for him, but that aint happening.

    I am all for keeping Webb, but giving him any sort of look as the starting QB is just smokescreening by the front office in what I think is an attempt to get a trade offer on him.
    He is a perfect change-of-pace and backup type quarterback, and obviously has played well when given a chance out there. But when he was the starter and teams got to prepare for him, they made him pay for his lack of vision and his lack of accuracy.
    I would love to see us have more packages with him involved, including with him and Ponder on the field at the same time, but I don't think he is full time starter material in this league.
    If the front office can convince some other team that he could be a starter though, then I am all for unloading him for a third (or maybe fourth) round pick or better.

    Not sure where the "change of pace" QB talk is coming from. It is maybe a good thing with pitchers or running backs, but not quarterbacks. You want a QB to be able to come in and run the same offense the rest of the team is practicing and running in the game.

    Something to "Ponder" over the Deadskins game.

    1rst half - O-coord primary offensive looks were bunched sets. OL struggles, QB struggles.

    2nd half - (Afer AD and Ponder go down) - Multiple WR set packages. Toby and Webb run at will. WR's are open. OL doesn't struggle.

    Tale of two halves my friends. Still don't understand why Musgrove won't give Ponder multiple WR sets when he is out there.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
