Rookie CB B.W. Webb gets counseling from quarterback Tony Romo after bad game

Count quarterback Tony Romo as one of the people rookie cornerback B.W. Webb sought advice from after his bad outing in the 19-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders last Friday when he gave up six catches for 65 yards in coverage and fumbled a punt that led to the game-deciding score.

Coach Jason Garrett was critical of Webb's demeanor and confidence in the game and the rookie fourth-round pick acknowledged that he let his poor play at cornerback bleed into the fumbled punt.

"Yeah, I guess I thought about my bad plays too much," Webb said. "I didn't really put them behind me. In this league you to put those in your back pocket and keep going. I kind of dwelled on those too much and it led into the punt, dropped the punt so it was just...I got to put things behind me and get on on with the game."

Webb said he talked to a few people after the game for advice, including cornerback Brandon Carr and secondary coach Jerome Henderson. He also approached the veteran quarterback for his perspective.

"His position is crazy and you have your up and down games," Webb said. "He really told me you got to be able to put that in past. He told me he messes up at times and coaches jump him and it's on to the next play, just getting that perspective from especially him."

In two games, Webb has played 108 plays. He has been targeted 13 times, giving up 10 catches for 94 yards, according to Pro Football Focus.
