Davis Webb Week 2 film study: Reading the tweets

New York Giants Hats , and throwing the ball better Davis Webb read the tweets.It has become one of the more common tropes on everyone’s favorite social media website. Usually implemented when an athlete is struggling to perform to their standards, those watching and live-tweeting the game start to get their digs in. However, if and when the athlete turns their performance around, other users are quick to chime in with “[Insert name here] read the tweets.” The implication being that the athlete in question saw what was being said, and was somehow inspired to play better. I mean 鈥erhaps Twitter users have a somewhat overinflated sense of importance, but that’s an issue for another time 鈥owever, one might believe that New York Giants’ quarterback Davis Webb read the tweets after his rebound performance against the Detroit Lions. After a preseason debut that saw Webb struggle against the Cleveland Browns, the second-year quarterback turned in a much more impressive performance against the Detroit Lions, completing 14 of 20 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown, with the short touchdown pass to Wayne Gallman capping off a lengthy 17-play drive that saw Webb make a few impressive throws. After his performance against the Browns, many evaluators — myself included — were wondering if Webb could improve in certain areas. As I concluded in this piece:So while Webb’s production was improved from the first preseason game, how did he fare in these areas? As we will see, the improvement was there as well.Release pointYou really did not need the film to conclude that Webb missed on some throws against the Browns, completing just 9 of 22 passes can lead someone down that road. But when you turned on the tape you saw that the young QB was missing on throws, particularly high, and even on some of the passes he completed, the throw seemed high. Perhaps he was too “amped up” for the debut, but when looking at his game I found an inconsistency in his release point. Some passes were thrown with more of an “over-the-top” delivery, while others were delivered with a lower release point, much closer to his ear/helmet. The consistency I was hoping to see? That returned against the Lions.Webb’s first impressive throw of the night, and perhaps his best, came midway through the first quarter on a 3rd and 17 play. The Giants come out with Webb (5) in the shotgun and in a 2x2 formation, with Evan Engram (88) and Sterling Shepard (87) in a wing alignment on the left. The Lions show Cover 1 on this play with cornerbacks in press alignment to each side of the field:Shepard runs a corner route, working against man coverage. Nevin Lawson (24) is the cornerback in coverage New York Giants Hoodie , and he is in very good position here, right on Shepard’s back hip. This requires Webb to make the perfect throw ... and he does:What stands out is the release point. Webb shows a very crisp release here, much closer to the ear. With this throw under his belt I wanted to see if later throws in the game were delivered with the same type of release.Later in the game Webb connected on a deep shot to Russell Shepard. Watch how the release point on this throw mirrors the corner route to Sterling Shepard:As you can see here, both on the live shot and the replay, Webb’s release point is very similar to the release point on the earlier throw. This consistency in release point will contribute to a consistency in ball placement. Both of these throws were put in a perfect spot, and it begins with the release.In a moment we’ll talk about the decision-making process from Webb against Detroit, but on both of these plays you have to be impressed with the decision-making and execution as well. On the first, Webb knows he has Cover 1, so he goes to the best man coverage beater on the play, the corner route from Shepard working away from safety help. On the second throw, Webb uses a pump fake, as well as his eyes, to influence the safety to one side of the field before dropping in a perfect throw to Russell Shepard on the right side. Very well done.Decision makingWhile the thought process on the previous two plays showed an improvement over the first preseason game, I want to highlight two other plays from Webb against the Lions that show similar progress. The first is a first-and-10 play later in the first quarter, during New York’s lengthy 17-play drive that culminated in a touchdown pass from Webb to Gallman. The Giants come out with Webb under center and with 21 offensive personnel in the game, in an offset I-formation:Look at the defensive alignment. Because of the down-and-distance, as well as the offensive personnel, the Lions have their base 3-4 look in the game, and walk the strong safety down toward the box over Engram. Detroit is expecting a run.But the Giants use a play-action pass here, and after coming out of the fake Webb looks immediately to Cody Latimer (12), the receiver on the right side of the formation, who is running a Bang-8 post route:What I love about this decision is two-fold. First, Webb identifies a defensive weakness in the pre-snap phase and immediately exploits it. When Detroit walks their strong safety down toward the box over Engram, that creates a window to the other side of the field Cheap Customized New York Giants Jerseys , where Latimer is running his route. Had the formation been different, with Engram on the right side, the SS would be in that alley, taking away the throwing lane. Second, Webb’s decision is immediate. Because he sees the defense pre-snap and reads it well, he knows that he has the throw to Latimer. So he comes out of the play-fake firing, and the Giants move the chains.The touchdown pass to Gallman highlights the potential of this Giants offense to create mismatches, regardless of who is lining up under center. Facing a third-and-goal at the Detroit 8-yard line, the Giants line up with Webb in the shotgun and implement a 3x1 alignment:Here is where the Giants can be very difficult to defend in the red zone. New York goes with a “Y-iso” formation here, putting Engram alone on the left in the 3x1 formation, with Gallman in the backfield next to Webb, shaded to the left. Up in the booth before the snap, Chris Spielman, a former NFL linebacker himself, begins talking about how a defense needs to “highlight” Engram in this situation, given his size and ability in the red zone. Detroit runs Cover 2 Man Under on this play, and as Engram releases vertically he draws not only the cornerback, but he also draws the attention of the safety to that side of the field. That leaves Gallman isolated on second-year linebacker Jerrad Davis (40). Gallman runs a quick Angle route, flashing to the outside before cutting back on a diagonal across the middle, and the young linebacker overcommits to the outside:Easy throw, easy catch. Again, Webb sees the mismatch in the pre-snap phase and knows exactly how to exploit the situation. Webb’s outing against Detroit was certainly a step in the right direction. Whether he can build on the positives from that performance remains to be seen, but Giants fans should feel a bit more optimistic about the second-year passer as the season approaches. Or you can just keep tweeting. Maybe Webb really does read the tweets ... The only number that really matters for the New York Giants at the mid-point of the season is their record, a miserable 1-7. That means they are headed for their sixth playoff-less season in seven years Color Rush Alec Ogletree Jersey , and fifth losing season in that time. They are headed toward their third top 10 draft pick in the last four years, and could end up with the first overall pick for the first time since 1965, when they chose running back Tucker Frederickson.Each week during the season we provide a “By the numbers” post that gives some numbers of significance leading up to that week’s game. There is, of course, no game for the Giants this week as they get a bye to lick their wounds. With that in mind, let’s look at some of the numbers that tell us about the Giants’ season to date. Specifically, why the Giants can’t score enough points.Eli Manning and statistical anomaliesESPN on Wednesday produced a post detailing misleading quarterback stats for 2018, and with Manning that’s a perfect place to start. There are basic, raw numbers that would lead you to think the 37-year-old quarterback is having some type of renaissance season:68.3 percent completion rate — more than five percentage points higher than his 2014 career-best of 63.1.2,377 yards passing. That is fourth in the league and puts him on pace for 4,744. That would be the second-highest total of his career, behind 2011’s 4,933 yards.297.1 yards passing per game. Again, second-best of his career behind the 308.3 yards he averaged in 2011.An average of 7.5 yards per passing attempt, also second-highest of his career.A yards per completion average of 11.1, best since he averaged 11.6 in 2014.A passer rating of 90.9, best since 2015 and above his career average.An interception percentage of 1.9, by far the best of his career.Yet, the facts (1-7, a team that is 28th in the league in scoring at 18.8 points per game) and the eye test tell you those are mostly empty numbers.Much of it has been accumulated at garbage time of lost games, and thanks to the run-after-catch ability of Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr.Manning has been sacked 31 times, second-most in the league. That puts him on pace for 62 sacks, far more than the career-high 39 times he was sacked during a full 2013 season. Many of those are because of a porous offensive line. A fair share, though Youth Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey , are because of the action — or inaction — of an aging quarterback who doesn’t trust his offensive line.Manning’s touchdown percentage (6 TDs in 315 throws) is a career-worst 2.5 percent. He has been sacked on 9 percent of his drop backs, easily a career-worst. Here are some other numbers from Player Profiler that aren’t very pretty:Red zone completion percentage (41.2 percent, 41st); Deep ball completion percentage (27.8, 29th); Production premium, defined as above or below league average using several categories (-27.4. 35th).If you are interested, here is a Pro Football Focus chart that shows where Manning has and has not been successful throwing the ball this season.ESPN also points out that Manning leads the league in “failed completions.” That’s a stat developed by Football Outsiders that tracks. completed passes that fail to gain 45 percent of the needed yards on first down, 60 percent on second down or 100 percent on third or fourth down. Manning leads the league in both number of failed completions (72) and percentage of failed completions (33.5 percent).There is quite a bit there that tells you why the Giants have not been able to score points. Some of that is on Manning, some of it isn’t. Regardless, it’s not good.SB Nation’s signature statsWe can’t do this look at midseason numbers without spending some time dissecting the work of Bill Connelly over at the SB Nation flagship.The Giants rank fifth in the NFL in creating big plays (The percentage of plays gaining at least 20 yards from open play — i.e., plays between your 10 and your opponent’s 30). They rank third in the league in a category Connelly calls “marginal explosiveness”. Yet, they are 27th in “marginal efficiency” and 26th in “third down success rate.”The Giants, despite Barkley’s brilliance, are last in the league in “rushing marginal efficiency,” with 18.8 percent of their plays getting less than expected or needed.Team Rankings tells us that the Giants are 31st in the league in the red zone, having scored touchdowns on only 10-of-25 opportunities (40 percent).Connelly’s numbers break that down even further, extending to the opponent’s 30-yard line.The Giants are 26th in the league in success rate inside the 10-yard line, last in the league in success rate from the 11 to the 20-yard line, and 26th in success rate from the 21 to the 30-yard line.One red zone problem has been the inability to get the ball to Beckham, who has just 3 receptions in 13 red zone targets (23 percent) with a touchdown and an interception on passes thrown his way.Find the full chart and Connell’s explanations of the categories here.Pro Football Focus numbersBecause I know you love to argue about these, even though the reality of it is the raw grade is a) subjective and b) doesn’t really give you a clear, complete picture of how well or how poorly someone is playing. I’m just going to put them here, and you can do with them what you will.Highest offensive gradesLowest offensive grades
