After one week of the season, the Arizona Cardinals will not be changing their starting quarterback. Head coach Jonathan Gannon told reporters Monday that Josh Dobbs would start again in Week 2 against the New York Giants, Arizona’s home opener.
“I’m excited about seeing what he does this week,” Gannon said.
Dobbs and the offense struggled on Sunday in a 20-16 loss to the Washington Commanders.
The offense did not score a touchdown and mustered only 210 total yards.
Dobbs was 21-for-30 passing for only 132 yards. He was sacked three times and turned the ball over twice on fumbles.
31 of those passing yards came on one play in the first quarter.
The Cardinals don’t have great options at quarterback, at least until the eventual return of Kyler Murray, other than to hope Dobbs improves and that many of the issues he had were the result of a very talented and tough Washington defensive front.
Their only other options are rookie Clayton Tune and veteran Jeff Driskel, who is on the practice squad.
Including his start against the Commanders in the season opener, Dobbs has played in only nine NFL games and has started three times. He is 0-3 in those starts.
