While Eli Manning is currently penciled in as the 2018 starter for the New York Giants, his potential heir to the throne is showing coaches and fans alike that he has what it takes to be a franchise quarterback in the NFL.
Davis Webb has dominated OTAs since its beginning last Friday. Head coach Pat Shurmur stated, “Everyday he gets a little bit better.” Development is only gauged by visual progression, and Webb is certainly showing everybody that his nonstop work ethic and offseason training is paying dividends.
The New York Giants have a new crop of rookies and a ton of talent on both sides of the ball. You won’t want to miss out on any breaking news stories, updates, or every-day activities! Sign up for FREE to receive premium content delivered straight to your email.
On day one of OTAs, Webb, the second-year passer, displayed his arm strength, accuracy and impressive long-ball while being inserted into the new offensive scheme. Wide receiver Sterling Shepard stated several weeks ago that he would often run through the playbook with Webb at their apartment complex. Webb would stay up late studying the playbook and already knows the schemes like the back of his hand.
That’s the type of quarterback you want on your team; one that’s willing to go the extra mile to earn the opportunity, and one that doesn’t only physically practice, but trains his mental prowess as well.
