Quarterback Davis Webb
July 30, 2018
A: You have to change it to scheme. It’s all about matchups and players. Especially, with us, I’m fortunate to be around Odell and Saquon. He’s going to have to tweak against us, tweak against other people. So, it’s all about them. But, I’m definitely prepared.
Q: Do you keep all your games notes and preparation and study it in the offseason?
A: Oh yeah, I kept it all. I keep every binder each and every week of the defensive coordinator.
Q: What’s the best thing in camp that you like about your game in terms of mechanics or execution?
A: I think I really worked hard this summer on pocket movement and escaping, and avoiding the rush, and throwing on the run. That’s something I really try to enhance – throwing on the run once the play breaks down; getting out of the pocket.
Q: Talk about Eli Manning and what he means to you in terms of your progression and growth as a quarterback.
A: Eli? He’s the best I’ve ever seen throw it. I mean, he has total command of the offense – attention wise, route wise, teaching everybody on the fly on the field and off the field. He’s ready to rock and roll. We’ll all try to keep up. He sets that tone, and I know he’s going to play his best.
Q: How have these first few training camp practices been for you in terms of helping the rest of the quarterbacks in the room?
A: I think we all want to be successful. So, we’re all trying to help each other out so we can all have a successful practice. We’re all trying to be good teammates. Anything worth doing is worth doing right.
Q: You all have each other’s backs in there, right? (Quarterbacks)
A: Oh easily, yeah. We don’t ever look at it as competition. You just got to do the best you can and let the coaches decide for them. That’s their job. Our job is to throw it to the open guy.
A: I’m just really buying into the style of Coach Shurmur and what he’s preaching to us each and every day. It’s fun.
Q: With having a year under your belt, do you feel more comfortable heading into this season?
A: Yeah. I think you try to do the best you can to prepare, and when that time comes, hopefully you’re ready. I got to see the worst of the worst last year. I got a first-hand experience in that one, even though I wasn’t totally in the fire, I was a fly on the wall per se. I was in the meeting rooms, I saw how our team kind of got hurt, and things didn’t go our way. But now, this is great. We’re moving on, and we’re ready to rock and roll.
Q: How have you benefited from the idea that you all are learning a new system?
A: We’re all learning at the same pace. Obviously, [Eli Manning] he’s picked up quicker and he’s able to kind of go another step further than all of us because he’s Eli Manning. At the same time, we’re kind of able to have communication and say, hey – this is what we talked about in OTAs. How are we going to change it in training camp, and to the season? It’s been fun to kind of be on the same page. Our relationship had definitely gotten stronger.
