This is a very impressive debut for rookie QB Joe Webb, is a quarterback now a position of need for the Miinesota Vikings in the offseason? Webb looked impressive in the preseason and his athleticism has never been in question but he does look pretty solid this evening while playing in Philadelphia, a hostile place to play.
After the first drive of the second half, Webb is 11 of 18 for 140 yards. WR Sidney Rice bobbled a 3 yard fade pass for an apparent touchdown and Webb did make a mistake by not hitting Adrian Peterson at the goal line on third down, but for his first career start in a game which has been nothing but routine, it’s an impressive showing.
The quarterback of the Vikings future might have been on the roster the entire season.
