You need to let go of that "Iowa State fan-boy" perspective.
I would vote to move Webb to the secondary.
And if we need a backup QB I think TJ will be available soon. If we brought him back I think he could actually be ready to be a starter in a few years. He just needs a little more time.
Webb as in game back up is where he will excel the most. Just as someone else pointed out in this thread...when he comes in mid-game the other team has not prepared for his style of play and he can make things happen when plays break down. In a short term situation as a mid game replacement his athletic ability can take over and he makes plays.
It seems in many cases when back up QB's get forced into game action they usually seem to do better than when they start the game. I think that's because the pressure is less, the other team hasn't prepared for their skill set, and there are not the same expectations.
That is why Bethel-Thompson will end up being our backup to Ponder this season. I can't wait to watch him toss the pigskin around tonight.
My prediction will be that Ponder, Rosencopter and Bethel-Thompson will be our three quarterbacks this season. I have no idea what will happen to Webb, but if he keeps performing like he did last week he might end up in the unemployment line.
Maybe we should use Webb as a D. palmer type rb. He has serious running talent, sure he can catch a simple swing pass. He has the arm to throw an option pass if the running lane isn't there. He needs major work in the pocket, however a play or 2 a game he can be electric.
