From 1990 through 2000, perennial Pro-Bowler Richmond Webb, owned the left side of the offensive line in Miami. He made sure Dan Marino's jersey was as clean as can be, even in those mud-drenched games in September on baseball fields.
Join Jason Sarney, as he welcomes Miami Ring of Honor Legend, #78 to the PhinCast! Webb talks about everything from his own draft experience on a Sunday in 1990 (that's when the 1st round was, Once Upon a Time in New York) to who is believes is the left tackle for Miami to select in the 1st round of this month's NFL Draft!
If Richmond Webb wants Miami to draft a left tackle in the first round, you listen!!!
Stories are told about #13 of course, as well as Webb's left side co-protector of Marino, guard Keith Sims. Jason and Richmond spend plenty of time laughing about the Miami and Buffalo rivalry, and the Ali-Frazier like game within a game, twice a season against legendary defensive end, Bruce Smith.
Spoiler alert - Webb owned him....basically.
In fact, across Smith's AFC East career, he averaged 1.1 sacks PER GAME against the Jets, 0.7 a game against the then-division foe Colts, 0.8 a game against the Patriots, and a meager 0.5 a game against Miami.
Essentially Webb, who should be in Canton, cut a Hall-of-Famer's average production against a rival in half compared to say, the Jets. Webb made Smith half the man the other #78 used to be.
No wonder why Bills fans hate the Dolphins....could you blame them?
Webb also tells tails about legendary Coaches Don Shula and Jimmy Johnson, his favorite moment on the field, and why it wasn't even close to the epic fake spike! I know...kinda took my for surprise too.
There were some excellent new Phin-Phacts thrown out there and confirmation on why playing with Dan Marino was unlike playing with any other human who ever tried to throw a football.
Don't take my word for it, just listen to how Webb talks about what it was like in the huddle with Dan The Man, and what it meant to him being a Miami Dolphin! The legends, the traditional '72 champagne perfection-pop, and a trip back to the decade that was the 1990's!
Additional, I learned that currently, the Webb household is doing something that is basically the family business...preventing. Mrs. Webb has been using her home-time wisely and productively in this time of Covid-19. She has been providing law enforcement and other local municipalities in Houston with home-made masks!
Even 20 years later, the Webb's are still keeping people safe!
Many thanks to Richmond and his family for his time and their work to help during this tough situation we all face!
Have no fear - we have a Webb helping out in protecting!
