    Maybe Webb should look at the 10,000. I think he might do better there.

      Maybe, but to ask a young 1:43/3:46 dude to move to 10,000 at this point probably isnt the answer.
      phsstt!

        Webbs comeing along but im starting to think its too slow for a serious national campaign. I think webb still has some crazy times left in him, probably not for this season though. Great run by manzano, especially after carson.

          Webb's problem is that he looks thick, heavy, and slow. By about 300m, it seemed pretty clear that he was fighting just to hang on..
          Too much junk food?

          Not a good start for this point in the season. I'm starting to wonder if AW really wants to be out there.

            I fail to see how Webb is coming along. He looked heavy and wasn't competitive.

              But the winner here looked even worse in his last race than AW did here.

                Speaking of hyperbole alert!

                There has rarely been a combination of such high expectations, occasional great results (time wise, not competition-wise), and yet so many perplexing races. Most all of us posting here really have no clue as to what is ever going on in the Webb camp, but from the outside in it has too many train-wreck moments for Webb to be taken seriously at this point. I know that most of us would wish otherwise, but reality keeps hitting us (and AW) in the face.

                  Last year was a washup for webb and this year is starting to look like he is up to his old tricks again.When he started the outdoor season he looked like he might be on track,but after this race I dont know what the hell is going on.

                    Webb needs a new coach, or he'll just continue with great times at random occasions mixed in with a series of bad performances. Whoever his coach is, the program ain't working for Webb.

                      Manzano!!!

                      I knew Adidas was a fluke.

                      Looks like Manzano's win has turned into another Webb thread.

                      *Sigh*

                        I agree with Kuha that Webb looked thick and over weight and sluggish...just nothing there. He's definitely not ready for a good 10,000m or anything else. I think it's not the same as manzano because he (manzano) didn't lose his confidence after Carson...but I feel like Webb's confidence has steadily waned over the last couple of years. I for one will be surprized to see him come back strong.

                          Manzano ran 3:55 mile last weekend in St. Louis.

                            I just don't see the fire in AW's eyes anymore - haven't seen it since his phenomenal '07. For the last two seasons, it looks like he's showing up for a 9-5 job that he doesn't enjoy.

                                Yes, after his last two races, I'm guessing that he had a cold or something in Carson. He's obviously in very good shape.
