ESPN writes: “In 2018, Roethlisberger finally follows through on that retirement threat. Dobbs, a former student of rocket science at Tennessee who spent two years backing up Big Ben, grabs the controls in 2019. Headline writers fire up their rocket puns.”
He hasn't seen action in a regular season NFL game so far this year, but in the preseason Dobbs completed 59 percent of his passes for 406 yards and two touchdowns over four games. He also rushed for 34 yards and a score.
On the Steelers’ quarterback depth chart, Dobbs is listed third behind Roethlisberger and Landry Jones. So, to eventually take that starting job when Big Ben calls it quits, he’ll have to beat out Jones, a four-year veteran.
