With the Giants embroiled in a disappointing season, many are beginning to shift their gaze to the future. Davis Webb has been a constant topic of conversation after the Giants used a third-round pick on the rookie.
Interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo assured the media that he's not ducking questions about Webb, but that the organization is taking it day-by-day.
"I'm not trying to avoid [it]," Spagnuolo said, via Tom Rock of Newsday. "We're taking it one day at a time, one step at a time... I understand all the questions about Davis Webb and I think all that stuff will work itself out. We have to decide, too, if doing anything actually gives you what you want to know. A quarterback goes out there and gets a false sense of what he can and can't do. I don't know if that would be fair either. So, we're assessing all of it."
This week, Webb saw a slight increase in his meager snaps with the first team to 12. Both Spagnuolo and offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan have been impressed by Webb but don't want to rush him into a game before he's ready.
"Davis did a lot of good things," said Sullivan. "All the preparation, the things that he's done behind the scenes in the meeting room, you can tell that he's someone that was able to take that information and he didn't freeze up... In terms of just the operation and having a sense of what was part of it, he did a good job."
Spagnuolo already confirmed that Eli Manning will be the starter this weekend against the Cardinals.
