Ross on the Verge of Grabbing Starting Corner Job from Webster

It looks like on the heels of the Giants win over the Redskins Sunday that a change will be coming in the teams secondary. First round pick Aaron Ross is on the verge of grabbing a starting corner job away from Corey Webster. Sunday Webster was benched by Tom Coughlin in the second quarter after giving up some plays. Ross was inserted, the Giants won 24-17, and it looks like the team will stick with him. “You need people to be in a position to make the plays when they are there and this is just something that Corey has to fight his way through,” Coughlin said. “His performance level has to increase.”

The play that seems to have sealed the fate of Webster is a 49-yard pass play that QB Jason Campbell made to wide out Santana Moss. On the play, Webster was back in zone coverage and it looked like he was in position, but Moss made the play, sending Webster to the bench. “It looked like he was in great shape,” Coughlin said. “And then we didn’t make a play on the ball.” Ross has been playing well for the most part with the chances he has had, and it looks like for now he will be the starter until either he falters or Webster can win the job back somehow.
