QB Davis Webb
Postgame vs Browns
August 9, 2018
Q: What did coach (Pat) Shurmur say to you, you admittedly said you were amped up, what advice did some of the guys give you?
A: Just kind of calm down and play. Guys know I can do it, thereís no doubt about that. I showed signs of it tonight, throwing check downs. They did a good job over there playing two deep, keeping everything in front of them. A few times I was close, I forced a few but I was a foot off for barely missing. At the same time, if I make those throws, we extend drives and get better chances of getting points on the board.
Q: Thatís why the ball sails when youíre amped up? Thatís the reason the ball sails?
A: Yeah, I need to put it on the guyís chinstrap. Thatís what I want to do, thatís what I need to do. Yeah, I missed far too many, but at the same time Iím going to get better from it. Iím not too worried about it. Iím going to learn from it and get better for next week.
Q: Do you have a checklist of things youíre trying to accomplish from week to week? Things to do in terms of improving?
A: One hundred percent. The biggest thing right now is going to the film room with coach (Pat) Shurmur and coach (Mike) Shula and kind of learn from my mistakes. Itís the first preseason game, Iím going to get better from it. This isnít going to be the last time playing, so I got another opportunity next week in Detroit, go against them everyday in practice and going to be a good opportunity for our team to go against someone new on defense. Looking forward to it.
Q: Did it feel good to punch it in after the turnover on the punt?
A: One hundred percent. Scoot ran the ball really well, really proud of Jalen (Simmons). Jerell (Adams) played well, he blocked his butt off and that was a good feeling.
Q: No chance you were sliding on the play before that?
A: I thought I got the first down. I got to watch the spot, it was a questionable spot. We tempoed it and we got a good run out there, O-Line blocked their butts off and we had a good run in.
Q: We know how you like to prepare, how soon are you going to watch the tape? Tonight?
A: Oh yeah, Iíll watch the game tonight once we get out of here and have some questions ready for the morning and kind of get better from it. Itís the first preseason game, itís an extension of training camp and you just try to get better from that.
Q: Did you have a view of Saquon (Barkleyís) run?
A: It was fast, first one. The guy works his butt off and hopefully thereís more to come.
Q:† Coach said you were a little amped up, a little over-excited. Were you excited when you got out there today?
A: I was pumped up. It was my first time playing in a year, so I think the biggest thing was kind of just take a deep breath, let the game come to you. Again, Iím not too worried about it. I know I could make those throws and I know I will. I just got to get even keeled and ready to rock and roll next week.
