The Dobbs effect: is it real?

Joshua Dobbs didn’t even know all of the players names on the offense.

Joshua Dobbs let the Minnesota Vikings to an outstanding win against the Falcons in Atlanta, Sunday afternoon.

On October 31, the Minnesota Vikings signed the Cardinals backup quarterback, Joshua Dobbs. Dobbs wasn’t planned to play, as he didn’t take a first team offensive snap with the team. Quarterback Jaren Hall, from BYU was planned to start against the Falcons.

Late in the first quarter, Hall stepped up out of the pocket and took a hard hit. Immediately his hands went up and the refs called for medics as putting your hands up is a sign of a concussion. Jaren Hall couldn’t return to the game, so newly acquired quarterback Joshua Dobbs had to relieve.

Dobbs’ first few drives were not so good. As the game went on, he progressively got better, ending the game with a 101.8 passer rating.
