Ryun did not win in Mexico City, but he did not run like a clown either. He was never the same after that.
Scott did not use good tactics in LA but was a great racer. Look at the number of sub 3:50s he did, and number of major wins (Oslo etc.). His best 2K is 2 sec slower than Spivey's.
Webb ran some great times but did not have that many great races against the best.
Multiple national champion, including over a prime Lagat. Beat Ritz at 10K his only time racing Ritz that distance & same with beating N.Symmonds at 800M his only time racing him that distance. Won GP's- winning means he wasn't time-trialing.
Scott had several top 10s at USA XCs. Lagat has a bunch of medals and faster at 1500, 3K, 5K than Webb.
Look back at what Scott and Ryun, and Liquori (plus Spivey and Lagat) did compared to Webb over say the peak three or four years of their career (need not be consecutive). Major meets (e.g., Diamond League or equivalent), national championships, WC/Olys, fast times, and world rankings.
Plus look at their bests for 2K.
