Report: Sometimes headlines are misleading.
An NFL.com article was headlined “Joe Webb will switch to wideout for Minnesota Vikings” on Sunday which led many to assume, you know, that the Minnesota Vikings were going to switch Joe Webb to wideout again.
That, however, may not be the case.
The source for this “report” comes from a Sid Hartman article in which Leslie Frazier gave a typical non-committal non-answer answer when asked about the possibility of once again moving Webb to another role in the offense.
“[Webb] is such a talented athlete that we want to make sure that we’re doing the right thing by him and our team, as well,” Hartman quoted Frazier. “That’s something we’ll continue to discuss as we go forward.”
Perhaps the league’s official site should have written a more responsible headline. ”Frazier Doesn’t Rule Out Webb At WR” would’ve been a little less deceiving.
Regardless, things are a little slow right now, so bring on some good old Joe Webb debate!
