Webb Finesses Vikings To 17-7 Lead

Posted by cjsiewert on December 28, 2010 – 9:38 pm

Vikings rookie QB Joe Webb has given more evidence to his superior athletic abilities by weaving through the Eagles defense for a 9-yard “shake and bake” TD.

On the TD scramble, Webb rolled out to his right, couldn’t find an open receiver and made a quick sprint towards the front-right pylon. Just before reaching the goal line, Webb received a clear-out block from TE Jimmy Kleinsasser, opening the sidelines for the easy score.

Webb was perfect on the 7-play, 75-yard scoring drive, completing 3 of 3 passes for 20 yards with the 9-yard scrambling TD. Vikings RB Adrian Peterson jump-started the drive on consecutive runs of 18, 8 and 3 yards followed by an 11-yard reception on a screen pass from Webb.

Vikings WR Sidney Rice hauled in a 14-yard reception on the 5th play of the drive and was immediately hit by Eagles CB Asante Samuel. The hit was helmet-to-helmet contact, resulting in a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty.

    wow, I have to admit, I did not expect Webb to play that well. after not showing much poise in the pocket last week and looking very raw I didn’t expect him to handle the Eagles defense that well. nothing against him I just knew he hasn’t had much experience. I’m really happy for him. and is it just me or did the offensive line play pretty good? and is it just me or did the Eagles look like the Vikings have looked all season, lol. they had a ton of penalties and couldn’t protect their quarterback! great game by the defense, special teams, and the offense.

    The o-line did a good job tonight. I guess I should be happy about that, only instead I’m more p.o’d than ever. Where WAS this o-line when Favre was under centre?

  16. By Stephanie on Dec 28, 2010 | Reply

    I think that was the best all around win by the team this season. a game NOBODY including me expected them to win away from home after being cooped up in a hotel for three days AND against a team that is going to the playoffs…the Bills game was pretty good but this was a huge win against a legitimate team. the defense looked A LOT better than last week.

    Mr. Smiff, I know what you mean, lol. I was thinking the same thing. It looked like Joe was pretty comfortable back there and was able to scramble when he did get pressured. I was impressed by the o-line tonight with both pass protection and run blocking. also, the offense had very little penalties which is huge! they didn’t have too many third and longs.

    Well now— where are all the naysayers that laughed when I said I have a feeling there is going to be an upset of the century tonight? Hmm? I said we would win and everyone was saying it would be a blowout and the Vikes would be demolished— there were too many variables that said otherwise. Why are those jokers called commentators in such shock?

    CJ– you cannot be a weatherman and change your forecast mid-way through the day. For example this is what CJ posted before the game:

    Not a whole lot: that would be the answer to what we should expect from Vikings QB Joe Webb,

    NOW, after the game:

    Good to finally see Webb get his shot. He did great. I see potential. All he needs is more experience. He could be amazing!! Excited for next week. Credit the D-coordinator for the blitzing! I don’t know where it was when we still had playoff hopes, but the past is the past. I just hope we’ve learned for next year!

    Titus, I think we have seen how Leslie can rally this club! I was so happy to see Joe look so professional. The O-line did give him time and the only weakness was our secondary again. They could have had so many and just dropped em’. Hope this will be a sign of things to come!!

    What an awesome game. Frazier for Head Coach, and Joe Webb for starting QB. To answer you Mr. Smiff, Joe can scramble with the best, something Favre hasn’t been able to adequately do for several years now. But that aside, this win was a completely euphoric dream compared to this previous nightmare of a season. Good job Vikings.

    I thought they would play on fire for a couple reasons (of course, I knew in the world of reality it looked like we would get killed)
    One- the Vikings team still has a lot of talent– and this is the last chance to showcase that talent to a national audience against a premiere team– a win tonight was the only chance at redemption until September, 2011.
    Two, that talent wants to have Frazier as head coach– this win was needed.
    Third, sitting in a hotel as an athlete for three days at Chrlstmas away from your families– a lot of pent up anger and energy– I knew they were going to come out and play like mad men– ready to dominate.
    Fourth– Adrian Peterson– we are always a contender with a player like him.

    Defense was outstanding – I agree with everyone else who asked where was this O-line and defense all year.

    What also made me feel pride was watching how happy Brett was for the team & Joe Webb when they would score. He ran right out onto the field one time to fist pump when Webb connected with Harvin on a long pass. To see Brett run down the sideline with both hands in the air when Webb ran for his TD – seemed like the torch had been passed and Brett was sincerely happy for Joe W & the guys.

    Josie, I totally agree. It seems Brett was passing a torch in a way and was truly happy for Webb and the team. as much as I’m sure he wanted to be out there playing, he seemed engaged on the sidelines and was cheering his teammates on. I’m sure he remembers being that young inexperienced guy and saw a little of himself out there.

    As happy as I am for Webb, I can only wonder what Favre could’ve done behind this o-line, in this game and all season (smh). Pro Bowl numbers, I am sure. Still, I’m very pleased with Webb’s performance. I think we have found our qb for the future. Tjack he is definitely not. We may not need to draft a qb after all. Good luck in Arizona, McNabb.

    well wispurplehead, I admit I didn’t know if Webb would be able to play as well as he did with the way the o-line was playing this season and the way he looked last game (partly because the o-line played bad and partly because he looked very raw and didn’t show much poise in the pocket). He surprised me because I thought he would take off running more, but he hung in the pocket longer and made some good throws. the offensive line played well for the most part and when Webb did get pressure he was able to make some moves. but look how Vick looked when he was under pressure. Vick usually can’t be contained. if the defensive line for the Eagles played the way the Vikings defensive line played, I don’t think Webb would have played as well and understandably so. Vick was harassed all night long.

    I have mixed thoughts on the Detroit game– the national stage is gone, the season is truly over and the players did win two road games with Frazier– so the head coaching job may be his– on the other hand, you have players like Peterson, Allen, Winfield, etc that never stop and the taste of victory is good– they may play very well. If they win, Frazier is probably a sure thing for next season.

    wispurplehead, you have a good point. I would much rather have Frazier as headcoach than Childress, so in a weird way this year could be good for the future! and Webb got his shot at the end of the season (and we were shown again that Tjack is not the answer, although I feel bad for him). I don’t think Webb could have played well at the beginning of the season either. He’s got some experience watching Brett and learning the offense…and at least tonight the o-line played better and there were hardly any penalties which have also killed us all season.

    It’s not a bad idea people. It’s not like Favre has regressed or anything. We all know why he has struggled this season. It’s not all his fault. He deserves a chance to make it right. And it can be a very good thing for Webb to have a competitor like Favre waiting in the wings. And Frazier has already said Favre will start against the Lions once he is cleared to play. He will not be averse to having Favre back. This could work, people!

    “bring chilly back now”…the players didn’t seem to respect him and I don’t think Childress dealt with the players well. this has stemmed back to when he first came here, so I think it’s much better that Frazier is the coach and I really like how he handles himself and the players.

The guy acted like he knew just as much as Brett, and wow did he fall flat.

    Mr. Smiff, Brett would only want to come back if he was the starter and he knows he shouldn’t come back next year. He’s got a lot of pride of always being a starter (I would if I were him too). but his body can’t handle anymore beatings after 20 years and being 41 years old. He seemed at peace tonight watching Webb play well and was encouraging him and the team on the sidelines. He seemed engaged and having fun on the sidelines. It’s clear he loves his teammates though and it’s too bad he doesn’t want to coach, at least not now.

    I think Brett would be okay not being a starter if he knew he could start an occasional game and be guaranteed to play in the playoffs– if he knew there was a chance at another ring- why not– I would. And not get beat up every game?

    Titus, I don’t really think it will cost that much. Let’s not forget, Favre never asked for the extra 7 mill, and at one point, he was willing to walk away from the 13 left on his contract. And the plan was to have Favre be the BACKUP qb, the one coming off the bench. Besides, he has already shown a willingness to sit out a game or two- hence Webb’s coming out party tonight. This could be a very good situation for them both. Question is, will Favre go for it?

  132. By Titus on Dec 29, 2010 | Reply

    Stephanie, I feel bad for T-Jack too, but more so for the fact that he did not prepare for the opportunity he had given to him– that is what we all face in life– regrets and it is horrible, but it was his choice– he had the chance to learn from the best, but like someone posted here– Sage was sitting with Brett and T-Jack was off somewhere, maybe looking for the orange gatorade because he didn’t like the lemon-lime– I don’t blame him, I can’t stand that flavor.

  133. By Stephanie on Dec 29, 2010 | Reply

    true Shawn, I find it hard to believe that Favre will be a commentator someday, but he may after several years want to get involved in football again and you know how he changes his mind, lol. so maybe he’ll want to coach at some level. I know he’ll miss the comraderie of teammates.

    Where I am not ready for Brett to play again, I could compromise and sign him as a player-coach. I think he could really do Joe a LOT of good. Have us pick up a REAL back-up QB and Brett could be the third string “IF NEEDED”!!

  136. By Titus on Dec 29, 2010 | Reply

    I know what it is like to be a boss and how it is to be a part of a team that is under a boss– I get a sense of why Favre does not want to coach– he does not want to be ruling in that way– he wants to be a leader on an equal level with his teammates– I don’t think he will ever coach.

    Great effort by everyone today! This is probably the best win for the vikings this year. To beat a playoff team when there isn’t much to play for anymore, that gives us fans a lot of hope for next season. They players did a great job both offensively and defensively. But my hat is off to coach Frazier. To get this team fired up and prepared both mentally and physically for this game after putting up very poor performances the last 2 weeks is just unbelievable! Now that’s what a good coach does! No matter how bad the situation is, a good coach never gives up and never lets the negatives get to his players. The defense finally appears to be back to its old dominant self and the offense is getting there. I really expected the vikings to get a very bad beating. Shame on me. Great win for everyone. Especially a great win for coach Frazier!

  158. By Stephanie on Dec 29, 2010 | Reply

    Titus, that’s so true! Brett likes to take his time explaining things and pauses often to make sure he’s saying the right thing. I think the things he says so often get blown out of proportion that he tries to cover all his bases, lol. so he wouldn’t be a good commentator. this might sound funny, but I think Brett is more of a loner and likes to keep to himself except when it comes to his teammates and joking around with them. I don’t see him wanting to be on TV at a desk every week.

    Fred Smith– you are twisting reality with your spin on the context and content of what ACTUALLY happened. Favre has always been the number one starting QB and it looked like his injury kept him from playing– Webb was going in, and then Favre felt better-the starter goes in. You have a movie or play– you have a major star get sick, the understudy prepares, the night of the performance the major star feels better- you put the star on stage. No one is insulted– this is not kindergarten, it’s life.

    Stephanie, after all I have seen tonight, I now know that Frazier can will his players to do great things. He is still Favre’s biggest fan and the feeling is mutual. The Wilfs still like him too. Unlike Childress, I can see Frazier making all the right moves to strengthen the o-line and provide quality weapons for Favre in the offseason. I can see Frazier and Bevell going over plays with Favre and accepting imput and ideas from him. And unlike TJack, I can see Webb listening to Favre like a sponge. With Favre on the roster for 2011, there needn’t be a 5 year rebuilding process. We can be right back in the playoff mix.

Webb looked much better tonight and the o-line played much better. the whole team played better. hats off the Webb and the entire team.

    Call me crazy, but I get a sense that Favre could really live vicariously through Webb as his QB coach next year. Honestly, he could make use of Brett’s 20 years experience, knowhow, and play action. Seriously now, did you guys see how much his face lit up and hoisted his arms every time Joe kicked some eagle tail?

  178. By mr smiff on Dec 29, 2010 | Reply

    I think Favre is now getting used to the idea of not having to answer the bell every time. Which makes the idea of him coming back in 2011 as a backup qb all the more feasible, if not likely. But that’s just me. Goodnight, all.

  179. By PurpleParody on Dec 29, 2010 | Reply

    Wow, we have some interesting optimism about the return of Favre tonight. Does he love the game enough to return as a backup/mentor? It would be an interesting proposition, but we still need to find a solid player to put in the #2 QB spot and/or compete with Webb. The kid showed promise tonight, but we have to be realistic and give him time to develop into a starter.

  180. By PurpleParody on Dec 29, 2010 | Reply

    On another note, this game (and the player endorsements afterward) gave me much more confidence in Frazier as our head coach. I still would like to see one more good outing against the Lions next week before I am completely sold on him. Don’t get me wrong, he’d probably be a good coach for us, but there is no reason to pull the trigger yet, especially with the rumors of Billick coming back to take over.

    One other scenario that I think should solidify Frazier as our HC would be the Eagles winning the Super Bowl. It would say alot about the guy who was able to turn around a losing team enough to beat the eventual champions.

  181. By Alex on Dec 29, 2010 | Reply

    I agree with what a lot of people are saying about Webb. But i still think that we are going to go and get a veteran QB to play as our starter next year. Get rid of Tavaris Jackson and give Webb second stringer. Let him run the wildcat offense. He still has a lot of growing up to do. If Favre is cleared to play on Sunday he will start. Coach Frazier said he will play if he is healthy. Well lets improve the secondary and get a wide receiver to take Berrians spot. Lets face it he sucks. Other then that we need to improve on our right tackle position. Loadholt isn’t doing very well. Other then that we have a good defense and lets keep it that way. So GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO VIKINGS.
