Joe Webb

Joe Webb remains an anomaly in Vikings history simply due to his tenure with the team. A sixth-round pick in the 2010 draft, Webb was originally a WR/QB prospect that former head coach Brad Childress emphasized he would exclusively play under center.

While his game against the Eagles in 2010 may remain an upset win, when called upon as a starter in big moment games is when Webb would flounder. Most notably in the 2012 Wild-Card game against the Green Bay Packers, where Webb went 11-for-30 for 180 yards and a 1:1 TD to INT ratio.

Webb would then be converted into a wide receiver for the following season. He bounced around the league from said position back to quarterback and even a contributor on special teams.

A utility player that never panned out, the Vikings simply couldn’t count on the UAB player to get the job done under center.
