Could help out in grooming Ashton Youboty, and add depth at the 3rd CB spot, maybe pushing Youboty for the 2nd CB spot. Will be interesting to see.

Like I said in some other Bills forum...Lower your expectations NOW, and itll save you alot of dissapointment when the season comes.

He is nothing but a short, slow, and injury prone CB. No joke. I think he let the highest % of passes be completed on his guy in the league (as a starter).

At best, I think he could be a decent nickleback. You guys seriously dont want to see him starting.

Ya, like I said tho, I feel that Ashton Youboty will start, but Webster could put pressure on him, but probably not. I understand what you are saying. He's only 5'9 and isnt very quick.

Sick, now I'm not so upset we didn't draft a corner!! Webster will be almost everything that Clements was for us, he is a good corner back!!

This was definitely not worthy of its own thread. Webster was absolutely terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible for the Falcons. Now, I do like the kid because he was once an Aggie, but damn, he is probably no better than Jabari Greer!

If I recall correctly he is a decent tackler for a corner though and if he can play zone defense at all he might be worth a roster spot on our team because of how insanely deep we are at corner. I don't think our defense will be too good at anything other than defending the deep ball, rushing the passer and stopping intermediate 5-10 yard passes. Everything between mid range to deep is going to be completed on us and we don't seem to have much of a run defense still. Going to be rough on defense for my Bills this year I think.

Webster was bad enough that for a short amount of time I considered him as possibly worse than Tory James. He wasn't, but the simple fact he earned consideration says how bad he really is.

Seriously, during the Falcons-Bengals game it was pretty obvious why all the Falcons fans said he was so terrible.

He got picked on big time in Atlanta. Teams would throw against him all day and he couldn't do anything to stop it.

Worst corner in the NFL. I don't think he can even play on this level.

He will be fine as your Nickel Corner, he's a very solid tackler, but he couldn't cover anything...much like Rossum in Atlanta except he's really slow too =/

Do we play the Bills this year? LOL =)

Oh god. Dont remind of that game. The way Webster was picked on over and over again...Forget Vick abusing dogs...what about Palmer abusing a human being?!

HAHA I know, the whole 2nd half I was screaming for them to throw at Webster then towards the end they got him on that 60 something yard bomb to Henry when it was obvious we were going deep.

I honestly felt bad for you all that he had to start.

What do you mean? We still have Terrence Mcgee, Ashton Youboty and Jabari Greer for you to work. Theres no telling, that maybe Webster doesnt make the team, or is 4th CB at best. Not to mention that we got KO and DW over the top!

05-21-2007, 09:41 PM
Not at all scared of Ko...not at ALL scared of ANY of your corners. DW is a baller though. Not to mention, I'm not scared of your pass rush, so your coverages will break down. I'm not so worried about beating you with the pass, it's not our strong suit.

05-21-2007, 09:51 PM
Considering we had 26.5 sacks from the DE spot on the team, Id they have a pretty good pass rush team, and many are aware of it.

I'll take him for depth. We needed another corner in there somewhere, but he seems like he should be our #4, maybe nickel but I'd probably rather have Kiwaukee out there.

Some people do overrate Ko, already expecting him and Whitner to be this great tandem, but he's still maturing and is getting better. He may have been our worst secondary starter last year on the whole (our corners didn't start out too well) but he has the upside and steadily showed improvement. We had one of the better pass defenses last year, and that wasn't all Nate, so we could be better than you think. Of course I still have worries myself.

No doubt you have the ability to get there, but young guys like that in the secondary don't scare me is what I was saying. I remember last year when Ko was a LOCK for first round on this site. It's just certain players certain places catch hype for no REAL reason. Heck I was trying to hype Patrick Watkins, who ended up being a starter in Dallas and having a very solid season. But Yeah, Ko can be fine, he's SUUUUPER young, that's the biggest reason I didn't want the Falcons to get him. At the end of his Rookie contract I expect him to finally start playing at his potential, but I am afraid it won't come until after he is re-signed or after he goes somewhere else.

Ok Ive sat back and watched your responses, but this one is just crazy. One, you should be scared of our pass rush because it is the strong point of our defense. Secondly you think Ko Simpson is underrated, but Patrick fricken Watkins had a decent season last year. Did you watch Watkins continually rubberneck while deep passes flew over his head? What you should be scared of is the fact that you have a glorified running back playing QB, and Schaub isnt there to bail his butt out if he continues playing like garbage. Before you throw the word overrated around maybe you should look at your team and realize that you have the most overrated, overhyped player in the history of the NFL on it. Im not trying to be a jerk here, but before you start telling us how you arent scared of our team, try to understand that the Falcons had the same exact record as the Bills last year. I cant sit here and predict the future, but unless Jamaal Anderson plays QB I dont see things getting any better for the Falcons in 2008.

Whitner played great last year and McGee is a seasoned starter with good coverage skills. Ko wasn't as bad as you're insinuating (I apologize, as my post was also more putting him down while he actually did play well last year). He can be an impact player well before you're assuming him to be and I'd take him over Watkins any day. Youboty is the only big question but he seemed good for the defense. We actually get to see him in TC this year.

Webster's not a bad player by any stretch but don't expect probowl form, I used to love seeing him in Atlanta because it meant we always had a great matchup on that side regardless who was our second receiver/

LMAO. I never said KO was UNDERrated...and Pat Watkins DID have a decent season...he got burned a couple times, I never said he had a GREAT season did I? You should read what I write not what you want it to say. You're right, we have a RB playing QB, a RB with one of the strongest arms in the league who had been playing behind one of the worst OLs in History. You don't try to turn this on me, because while my QB is going out doing EVERYTHING including running the ball to win our team games but getting trashed for it. Sorry that our WRs drop like 15% of passes thrown to them, and sorry that we threw the ball less than any team in the league. Forget the fact that Vick single handedly kept us in and won us a lot of games.

And for Vick to be called overrated you OBVIOUSLY don't listen to the media, because they say he has the ability, but no one is pulling for him hardly at all and NOONE is saying that he's a great QB yet...so you need to just get over yourself. He's one of the faces of the league because he's unique and draws SCORES of fans, but it's not because he's the greatest QB to ever play the game. He has the tools to be a Hall of Famer, but he's far from that at this point. However if he puts it together this year in this new system...look out...but that's the story of Vick at this point...can a coach finally harness all of his ability and get a team to come around him instead of leaving him on an island.

DW missed way too many tackles and didnt have much impact in games

BTW the falcons are garbage....my brother is a huge fan...
you have NO recievers, and if u call that 36 year old a game changer.... then Lee Evans is a hall of famer

your QB is a runningback, and though he is an exciting player...... he brings fans, he doesnt produce...hes been sort of an underachiever these past few years

every year the falcons fall apart at the end of the year

c'mon losing to the Browns?....and Losing to Carolina when Weinke was QB>?

Oh yeah...I said the Falcons were Super Bowl bound didn't I? Oh wait...NO I didn't. Give me a break. We had some of the worst coaching in the NFL, ask anyone, I NEVER supported Knapp he was a moron and wasted Vick's talent and pretty much everyone else's. Vick saves coaches jobs with his ability to take over and single handedly win a game with crap no one around him, aside from Alge. You saw the Falcons without Vick a few years ago with his broken leg...THAT'S how much of a difference he makes. He took the Falcons from cellar dwellers to beating playoff teams at the end of the season when he came back.

Don't talk to me about Vick under achieving, when he puts it on the line EVERY time out there and the team lays down on him.

I don't anticipate our coaching staff letting our players give up like we have in these past few seasons. Mora was too buddy buddy and couldn't get through the tough times, always had an excuse, I'm anxious to see how Bobby handles "adversity" I think he's not afraid to ring people up and send them packing, I'm excited to see it.

No offense buddy, but you are blindly following Vick. At some point people need to stop blaming the line, wide outs, and coaches for Vicks problems. I suppose his o-line gave him the water bottle as well.

Yeah, but the NFC South has been in the conference championship since it's inception not to mention the fact that, okay Tampa may not look tough, but no matter what they are going to beat your brains in with that defense, even if you win your team is going to take some shots and be reeling from them for a while...Carolina...with a good QB is a very dangerous team. Saints...nuff said. Falcons...well...we'll see what happens. We have the biggest weapon in all of football on the offensive side, no matter what ANY of you say. But we have shoddy WRs...offensive line looks to be changing from a weakness, but it's going to take time, and our defense, none of us really know what to expect. A healthy John Abraham makes this defense a TON better, but without him we'd be relying on too many young guys for a pass rush, and we have a young secondary as well, so it could be really good or really bad. Atlanta is one of the harder teams to predict right now, between not know if we'll have our QB or not, or how well Petrino's scheme will translate into the NFL game. But the NFC South is definitely in the running for toughest division in football. Especially in NFC South play, these teams are built to dominate in the division, whoever one team drafts another team drafts a counter...it's great football down here.

Im sorry dude but your wrong about that. It WAS one of the toughest divisions in the NFL. You cant compare it to the AFC East, especially not with this Patriots team. I hate em but theyre probaly the best team right now.

I agree with you on all the Mike Vick arguments though. He willed that team to the Conference championship a couple years back
