With the Pittsburgh Steelers needing 20 yards on second down from their own 5-yard lineearly in the fourth quarter Pittsburgh Steelers T-Shirts , it would have been understandable if Steelers Nation was anxious watching Joshua Dobbs take his first meaningful snap at quarterback with Ben Roethlisberger sidelined. But those fears were quickly dismissed when the young quarterback threw an impressive 22-yard strike to JuJu Smith-Schuster for the first pass of his NFL career. While Roethlisberger would return to field on the following play and take the Steelers the rest of the way, the brief appearance by Dobbs was critical to keeping the scoring drive alive. With the offense close to their own goal line and a backup quarterback in the game, it was something of a surprise to see a pass play, but it turns out a run was actually the call all along. Speaking with reporters after the game, Roethlisberger confirmed that his young backup had called an audible on the play https://www.steelerssportshop.com/hats , checking to a pass with devastating effect and impressing the veteran starter at the same time. As relieved as Dobbs will have been to know Roethlisberger wasn’t seriously injured on the play that sidelined him, it would have been understandable if he’d hoped to see more than one snap. Ultimately, the former Tennessee product was just happy to have had a chance to play.Prior to Week 9, the only opportunities that Dobbs has seen so far this season have come on kneel-down plays at the end of a game. A stat line of two runs for minus two yards in situations that gave him no room to audible were hardly learning experiences, but the first-year quarterback is sure to take something positive from this latest game action and he should enjoy his 118.8 lifetime quarterback rating while it lasts. In the world of sports betting there is a market for everything Pittsburgh Steelers Hoodie , and it should come as no surprise to learn that one of the latest markets available for the Pittsburgh Steelers involves where Antonio Brown will be playing football next season. Before Art Rooney II spoke to the media on Thursday, the Steelers were heavy favorites with any sportsbooks offering the wager, but since then the market has taken a notable turn. At odds of 4/1 (+400), MyBookie.ag currently has the Atlanta Falcons listed as the favorites to be the team Brown is on come September 1, with Pittsburgh now behind five other teams as joint third favorites at 7/1 (+700) Franco Harris Jersey , However, if Atlanta really does end up being Brown’s ultimate destination in 2019, he should be wary of the reception he might get from his future teammate and fellow wide receiver Julio Jones. When caught by the cameras of TMZ on Friday, Jones seemed far from enthused about the prospect of having AB join him on the Falcons roster. Ask if he would like to see Brown in Atlanta, Jones responded.Given how little AB appears to have enjoyed sharing the limelight with JuJu Smith-Schuster this season https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Rod-Woodson-Jersey , it is hard to imagine he would be too excited about fighting for the attention of Matt Ryan with Jones on the other side either. From a financial perspective, it is also difficult to believe Atlanta would be willing to invest so much money into one position group given how much Jones is set to cost them in 2019.For those consider a wager on his future, it is still hard to ignore Pittsburgh, especially at odds of +700 considering they were -500 only a few day ago. While the San Francisco 49ers are also attractive at the same odds in light of Brown’s apparent interest in them on social media as of late.
