    Joshua Dobbs balls out this preseason and Mason Rudolph doesnt does Jones stay or be cut? I ask because it seem Dobbs hasnt had a fair chance to show anything im just of the belief that before u can be annointed the next coming u gotta show something Mason hasnt yet Dobbs small serving size seen so far.

    Hasn’t had a fair chance? Did you see how much playing time he got during preseason last year? I bet you think Tebow was never given a fair chance as well.

    They are absolutely high on Mason''s potential and Landry i's the solid backup. So in the event of Dobbs ball ingredients out it would force them to keep all of them. An article on steelers.com covered how this happened in 95 with Stewart and Miller

    Edit: my personal belief is no matter what Dobbs is PS bound

    In 95 teams typically kept 3. Last year 19 of 32 teams went with only 2. Today, keeping 4 would be much more of an anomaly.

    Apparently in 95 because they kept NOD, Tomzack, Miller and Stewart as a rookie. I never liked Miller's game but Cowherd and the coaching staff did

    No, if you remember, Cowher gave him like 1 quarter of a game, yanked him and never played him again. It had the appearance he had been pressured to play him and quickly benched him in J Ville I believe. Miller had some moments as a Bear though.

    Clearly you weren’t paying attention. Dobbs took more snaps than any othe. Qb on the roster.

    Obviously you weren’t paying attention. It was far more than a few snaps. He had 64 passing attempts, so double that to account for rushing attempts, and he had approximately 128 snaps.

    Can I tell from that many snaps he wasn’t ready to be an nfl QB? Absolutely.

    Can I tell where he is now after a year of practice? Absolutely not.

    I don't think teams are breaking down the door for Dobbs. I think he may last on the PS for a year and if not we bring in another next year. :cool:

    Only thought is, to go on the PS I believe he first has to be released? He would have the option of going elsewhere, if even on another practice squad, if only for a better opportunity.

    If there is someone that wants him. Many teams are only keeping twoqbs and trying to keep one on the PS or just going after a FA that doesn't have a team right now if something happens. I don't think it's a great loss if he does go elsewhere, but I hope he sticks around for now. Other undrafted guys are out there too and other cuts will be made.:cool:
