Joshua Dobbs has been a Cardinal for all of a week but he’s already pencilled in to start week one and he expects to be ready to go. With franchise QB on the PUP list, and missing at least four games to start the 2023 season, Arizona are looking to start a QB who has had very little time in their system.
Dobbs has been in the NFL for 6 seasons but has played just 8 games and his record is less than stellar. With a 61.6% completion rate, 1,638 yards, 9 td and 9 int. It has started a debate with Cardinals fans over whether the team are tanking, and is Murray even the future of this franchise.
JOSHUA DOBBS READY TO TAKE HIS CHANCE
“I know the QB situation’s gonna play out however the coaches see fit,” Joshua Dobbs said. “But, for me, I come in ready to compete every single day. I push myself, but also approach the room in that way, and so I’m excited to be a part of it and be a part of the team.”
“If that is the case, you know, I put in a ton of work,” he said. “I have a ton of sweat equity, and I’m extremely prepared for the opportunity, but that doesn’t mean I’m ever complacent, using every hour, every minute of the day … to continue to prepare for that opportunity, whatever opportunities come after it.”
Dobbs is the kind of player it’s to root for, but reality may well have a very cruel say in how this story plays out.
For his part new Cardinals Head Coach Jonathan Gannon is keeping his cards close to his chest. “I won’t name a starter because I think it’s a competitive advantage for us going to Washington,” Gannon said. “We have a plan in place, but I want to see them play football still. “We have some work this week and the following week we have some work. So I feel good with that.”
So while Joshua Dobbs is ready, the Cardinals may still pull another twist.
Are the Cardinals tanking or trying to win? This decision could help us figure that out.
