      How did he work out?.....Just fine.
      Do you think that was a good decision? Draft a QB who you hoped would never get playing time and then count on him as a serviceable back up? Wouldn’t you rather have a backup who actually had some playing experience so he could do a good job if Eli went down?

        Yeah well there's just too much manage a trois between BlueClue, Harooni and Webb to even stomach around here.
        Just when I don't think it can get any worse, I think of you Ray. I have been to the abyss....thank you for helping me stay positive.

          Great point. Some people think our #3 should come rescue this team. When he most likely gets a body blow that kills him because he's slow to read through his progressions and is green. People don't seem to realize the coaches look at them in practice and know when they're ready to take snaps in prime time. If MoreOn and Blue Clueless and Haroo...(can't even type his f'ing name) have their way, they'd put Webb out there against Philly to get body bagged.

            Thanks for taking the time to explain it to the oldie.

              I would have gotten him in more games. especially in 14 and 15 when we were getting destroyed.
              Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                Injury isn't the only reason. Poor play by the starter is another.

                  While it’s true that every rookie QB, in a sense, gets thrown to the wolves the first time they enter an NFL game that counts, while I want to see what Webb has, I’m not sure he could show much, running for his life every down, with no running game, and only one receiver in Engram, who is worth a darn!
                  The game isn’t going to slow down for Webb behind a ****ty line, with no running game and limited targets to throw to.
                  Or, if he’ IS he future, would he overcome it all to surprise us with a great debut?
                  Im torn! To play Webb or not to play him.....that is a conundrum.

                    And maybe he's mobile enough to be successful? To not play him is sticking our heads in the sand at best, or letting a QB in decline dictate at worst.

                      and to leave him as the 3rd string qb, getting very limited reps will stunt his development. I though he looked pretty good in the preseason, and by this point in his first year should be pretty far along.

                        Hopefully he gets some playing time and not just Genos replacement getting all the snaps

                          We just don't know but we should not be afraid to find out.

                            Here's the thing ... none of us have any idea whether or not he is even ready to play.

                            He was drafted as a project who would not play at all this year. Even McAdoo, who was itching to get Eli out of there, didn't even dress Webb after he sat Eli and essentially admitted that Webb wasn't ready to play yet.

                            If the coaches don't feel that this guy is ready to play, what will putting him out there anyway accomplish? I assume he would just play like someone who is not ready (which they already knew).

                            If they feel like he is ready, I am all in favor of getting a look at him this season.

                              The others problem is, however.....we’re discussing this in a thread that’s wrong, because he was not named the number 2 behind Eli, Spagnuolio announced that Smith would be the backup.
                              BUT.......conundrum number 2.......In order to see Webb, they have to dress the kid and activate him. They aren’t going to for this game.
                              So....the real question seems to be: Tastes great or less filling????
