Ravens Cornerback Lardarius Webb joined The Vinny and Rob Show Friday afternoon on 105-7 THE FAN to discuss the Ravens upcoming Training Camp and season. Webb has been working hard this off-season to rehab his torn ACL from last year.
Everyone wants to know whether or not Lardarius would be ready for week 1 and be a full participant in next weeks training camp. Webb did not give Vinny and Rob any straight answers on whether or not he would be game ready but Webb did say that he has been working extremely hard to get where he is and doing his best to be ready for Denver. Webb also said he is almost too anxious to play with his teammates and needs to be held back sometimes so he does not over do his rehab.
Lardarius has a Super Bowl ring from last season but he has real motivation to play in and win a Superbowl while he is on the field. Webb is proud of his teammates and their accomplishments but after tearing his ACL in week six it is obvious how hungry Webb is to make an impact on this season to get back to the Superbowl.
Webb’s teammate Joe Flacco had come under considerable criticism before going on an unprecedented run in the Playoffs and taking his team Super Bowl. Lardarius had always been a supporter of Joe and said he could not wait for him to have his breakout year to silence his critics. Webb believes that Joe winning the Super Bowl and being the game’s MVP should do just that. Another Raven who has come under fire is Tandon Doss. Doss had two crucial drops in the Ravens Wildcard game versus the Colts but Lardarius Webb had this to say about Doss “He some of the best hands on the team and that’s by far. We know what he’s capable of doing. Dropping the ball. Thats just a game he had…He can catch the ball. He just needs some playing time…You will hear of Tandon Doss this year. You will.” The receiving corps looks like it will be Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones, and Tandon Doss for this upcoming season.
