It’s not normal that we take pleasure in seeing a classy NY Giants player leave town, but there’s an exception to be made here for quaterback Davis Webb. We all knew that Webb was planning on making the move to coaching sooner than later. It was his plan before last season, but he ended up suiting up for the Giants for one last go.
Webb was able to start against the Eagles in the regular-season finale, scoring the first two touchdowns of his career. That contest has proven to be his last with the G-Men, and in the league for that matter, as he has been hired as the new quarterbacks coach of the Denver Broncos.
Davis Webb is off to be the next QBs coach for the Denver Broncos and Sean Payton
Webb’s final action as a player saw him rush for a touchdown against the Eagles, and hit Kenny Golladay for a score. Who would have thought Golladay’s first-ever NY touchdown – likely his last as well with the Giants – would come from Webb? That’s exactly how things ended up going down for these two.
Looking ahead to next season, Webb will be tasked with trying to help Russell Wilson get back to his old self. Wilson’s first year with the Broncos was a complete and total nightmare. No one would have thought that Denver, which gave up five draft picks for the former Super Bowl champ, would look so bad in 2022.
Now that Sean Payton is the new head coach of the team, the Denver fanbase is starting to believe again and a lot of people like the Webb hire. Hey, we didn’t want to see Webb pack his bags and leave the area, but he’s earned his shot to be an NFL assistant. There was a small chance Brian Daboll was going to be able to add him to his staff in the offseason.
As soon as it was announced that both Shea Tierney and Mike Kafka would be back, it felt like Webb was almost certainly going to be going elsewhere. Payton put an offer on the table and Webb took it. We can’t blame him for it at all and we wish the best for him.
