I brought this up last year, some of you might remember. One thing I don't like about Josh Dobbs are his legs. They're long and thin. But on top of that he has some knee inversion when he plants.

I've been surprised he hasn't had an injury considering how much running he's done in college.


damn that dreaded knee wobble...

Joke all you want, inverted knees are a legit worry with a mobile QB. Robert Griffin being an extreme example.

Josh Dobbs has NEVER missed a snap in his Tennessee career. I don't even think he's missed a single practice let alone game. The guy has not had a single injury of any kind in his 4 years at Tennessee. Which is pretty remarkable when you consider how many designed carries he's had running the ball and how many hits he's taken in the pocket because his offensive line was dreadful.

Some guys just know how to avoid contact and some guys don't. RG3's injury issues are mainly because he exposed himself to a number of brutal hits. He did the same in college which is why he tore his ACL there as well. Dobbs on the other hand has a quality about him when he runs like Russell Wilson where he rarely takes big hits. He knows how to protect himself. And he has incredible presence in the pocket to avoid contact.

I think you're barking up the wrong tree with this one. Durability should be the least of anyone's concern with Dobbs. He's been remarkably durable his entire life. This is a kid who had perfect attendance for 13 years in school. He didn't miss a single day of class from kindergarden to the 12th grade. So I'm not sure he even gets sick. Laughing

All this blabbering aside, inverted knees increase the likelihood of lower body injuries. The fact that he hasn't been hurt doesn't mean those concerns are to be ignored. I didn't say he's been hurt or said he will be get hurt. I'm just noting a concern.

inverted knee wasnt RGIIIs issue tho. Him taking that hit against the ravens on his knee ruined the integrity of his knee with the bad field just finishing it off. inverted knees was never the issue for RGIII. If it was he would of had more issues in college.

Are there any more examples of inverted knee actually being a concern?

I never said inverted knees were Robert Griffin's demise. I just said he is an extreme example because his inversion was really bad. I haven't gone back and studied his injuries in detail.

Oh, well that's settled.

When you're an athlete you don't want inverted knees. It's not that difficult to understand.

I'd never seen an ostrich sh*t before.

That'd be a b*tch to clean off of a car windshield.

Oh, I sent a request to see your draft google docs.

Btw, you should look into joining BDL. Packer fans are especially welcome.
