Keep joking about the AFC South at your own risk. According to projected win totals, it’s no longer the NFL’s worst division. And one team, maybe even a couple, could do real damage in the playoffs this season.
The two-time defending division champion Texans have a promising rookie passer and what could become the league’s best defense. The Titans have real pieces around their young Cheap Jerseys NY Giants star quarterback. The Jaguars (on paper, at least) improved significantly on defense. The Colts have Andrew Luck.
Even if the AFC South is not great, it’s competitive. Don’t be surprised if a team not named Indianapolis or Houston wins the division for the first time since 2008.
At one point, Webb’s arm and athletic upside as a Cal transfer from Texas Tech had him in the conversation to be an early second- or even late first-round pick. But there were enough concerns about his mechanics, pocket presence and accuracy that he couldn’t go to a team that needed a starter in 2017 or ’18.
The Giants had the luxury to draft for his potential, and so far, Webb is doing and saying the right things. A big step for him in camp, regardless of Smith’s health, would be improving consistently to pull even with the veteran.
Of the 14.2 points per game he is averaging this season, 12.0 points come from four play types that don’t require him to do much with the ball in his hands. He’s either spotting-up for 3-pointers, cutting to the basket when his defender falls asleep, using his length to score in transition or attacking the Cheap Jordan Jerseys For Sale offensive glass for putbacks.
