    What are the odds on Dobbs playing against KC? How many minutes? Ben gets Wednesdays off but does practice Thursdays. But he did not practice this Thursday. Is he exaggerating this injury as he has in the past? Is he faking the injury as an explanation (excuse) if he sucks against KC? Oh it was my elbow! I had an ouchie! :shrug: Is Ben just jacking Dobbs around? ;) Is this a planned ploy by Ben and Tomlin to throw off KC's preparation? :hehehe:

    You really hate Ben don’t you?
    Faking it? That’s just moronic.
    Jacking Dobbs around? Also moronic.

    It is in the best interest to this team, to the chances of making the playoffs, that Ben plays. There's no room in that scenario for Dobbs. Unless of course, it is a blow out and he goes in for mop up duty to hand the ball off to the back up running back.

    I am betting you confused your baby powder with an astringent after your last shower. Don't notice the puckering? :eek:

    He's getting practice in with the 1's. Hopefully he's ready but I think ben is playing or at least starting.

    Dobbs starts Sunday, we're 0-1-1. Period. Dobbs is total garbage. He has a weak ass arm and is a run first QB. He will never be a full time starter in this league. I honestly don't think there is a single team in the league right now he could start for.

    Ben starts on Sunday. I have zero doubts.

    Let me guess, you didn't think Dobbs would make the roster? :hmm:

    Obviously he's not total garbage or Landry would still be here.

    His arm isn't weak, not even close.

    He's athletic, the more comfortable he gets with the game the less inclined he'll be to take off. I'm glad he has the ability to do so, though. Its not a bad thing.

    Time will tell if he is starter capable in this league, any declaration that he is not at this point is equivalent to a fart in the wind.

    Plenty of assumptions yet no evidence to base it on.



    We will have to see how Joshua does; him starting assuming Ben cannot.

    Ben is playing but at least this gets Dobbs some first team reps. Hahaha and like Fitchner said it would make the RPO much better with Dobbs in there. (Insert green font)

    The only reason Ben shouldn't start is if his arm is hurt to the point he can't throw a ball. Any other reason is ludicrous IMO.

    the only reason Dobbs made the team over Landry was they believe Dobbs has more room to develop, not to say he is there yet, but may eventually become better. In my opinion Landry was the better QB at this time, but they didnt want to lose what Dobbs may have. Landry being a backup, it was better to have potential over known.

    There certainly seems to be a lot of hostilities around here still, over the decision to keep Dobbs....
    If anyone is still feeling sorry for Landry....pretty sure you can reach him at home....:smiley1:

    Bruised elbow on his throwing arm, if he's not doped up to kill the pain Dobbs will get playing time.
