    Excellent young player

    Just giving an example
    He is great but will likely be out of our price range, where as a Glover Quinn will come cheaper.

    Ain't gonna happen!!
    Odds on favorite is that Cary Williams is gone and Jimmy Smith can't be trusted to be what they were hoping he'd be by now.
    Dude can't even stay on the field much less be relied on to be top tier.
    Webb just got payed a new contract IIRC and it wasn't to be a safety.

    Webb will be our safety.





    5 or more years from now.
    He's too good at CB and too young to be moved there before he's 32 or older.

    Webb will not be playing S anytime soon.

    And here I am thinking that ridiculous threads only creep up after a loss.

    Shame on me I suppose.

    Even thought Webbie played a little safety in college, this idea ain't comin' to fruition anytime soon. I realize the front office proliferates the "best player available" mantra when it comes to the draft, but come April, we will select a safety at some point. Bacarri Rambo, anyone??

    Re: Might see Webb moved to FS- dont be surprised.

    If you look at the cap situation, I dont think Ed Reed will be back. Moving Webb to S for a year makes good sense, easier position than CB, he has a very high football IQ. Plus, off of 2 ACL's he needs a buffer year and will his knees holdup to play CB is a valid question? Plus, with Graham, Brown and Smith and possibly Jackson or resigning Cary Williams you are set a CB for next year. If it fails at CB then if Webb is able to move back to CB you do that. Webb at FS can be Ed Reed part deaux. I just dont know if they trust Webb's knees, both knee injuries weren't gruesome but freakish WTF's types. Two torn ACL's isnt good for a corner news for a corner.

    Why does this always pop up? You don't move an all pro corner to safety unless they are too old.

    Usually yes, but the Ravens are in a unique situation. Webb would be a fantastic Safety. Webb has torn his ACL twice in 4 years. I'm not sure playing Webb at CB is in the clubs or his best interest. Especially with the amount of corners the Ravens have. Next year, I would love to see a healthy 100% Webb at CB and Reed back, but injuries and the cap might prevent that. I remember Webb talking about recovering from his ACL tear and said it took him 2 years to feel right and confident in it. This happening a second time will make it even more difficult mentally.

    Last time I think he tore it later in the season? The only thing I could find was this:

    "The good news is that Webb is on pace to return to the team perhaps as early as offseason workouts in May or June."

    The way they flip tackles, I could see it for one year if Webb isn't at full speed.

    Ugh... This ridiculous idea seems to get floated every few weeks and no matter how thoroughly it gets shot down, it rises again.

    I especially love the thought process on this one. Webb has fragile knees so we should move him to a position where he'll have to plant and turn nearly as much, AND would have to step up in run support significantly more and expose said knees to cut blocks from tight ends and full backs. Good plan.

    Maybe while we're at it we can move Boldin to QB... Ya know, since he played there in college.

    I don't see anyone on the roster who could take Reed's spot right now. It's certainly not Webb. Maybe they can convert Jimmy Smith since he can't cover one-on-one for shit. On second thought, scratch that.. He peeks into the backfield and gets burnt too much as it is. Picture all the long bomb TD's we'd give up if he did that playing FS!

    When Reed went down we got solid performance out of Zbikowski. I have no doubt that we will be able to field a solid safety tandem with Pollard, our CBs healthy (including Jimmy who I think has a very undeserved reputation on this board) and a healthy pass rush (in the form of a healthy Suggs and either Kruger or a developing Upshaw, Ed WAS a superstar once, but frankly he's playing on reputation and finding someone who can emulate what he currently does, and possibly be better at some things (see tackling and playing one's assignment) won't be exceedingly taxing I think.
