I am not sure where to start but he has surprised us all. Coming into the season everyone thought he would be second string at best. Dominique Foxworth was coming off of injury. Chris Carr was resigned to a nice contract. Ravens drafted Jimmy Smith in the first round. Cary Williams was a standout in training camp. All the while, Webb was working on his craft and making strides in silence. He led the AFC north in interceptions with five. Tied for third in the league in pass deflections (25) with Darelle Revis. Not to mention, he is the only starting corner in the league to not allow a TD pass.
In my opinion I didn't realize how much we needed Webb until the San Diego game. He had a toe injury and sat out that game. I'm not going to post stats because I still have a bitter taste. Lets just say he destroyed our secondary. In the postseason he registered three interceptions. Made a acrobatic snag against Tom Brady that set the tone in the game defensively. This year he has made his mark on this team and the league. Not sure if he is a shutdown corner yet but he is definetly on his way.
There has been some talk about moving him to free safety when Reed is gone. I say we leave him where he is. This guy has been a playmaker since day one. Another great find by our front office.
