Steelers Tape Study: Joshua Dobbs’ 2016 3rd Down Incompletions – Part 2

In a previous post, I wrote about how poorly new Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Joshua Dobbs performed on third down pass attempts during his college career at Tennessee and in it I indicated that I planned on digging deeper into his 2016 tape in order to see what really happened. I have now started a study related to that topic that includes me breaking down all off Dobbs’ 2016 incompleted third down throws from his 2016 season.

In my first post for this series I looked at the third down incompletions Dobbs had in his first two games of the 2016 season. In today’s post, I will show you Dobbs’ third down incompletions in Tennessee’s next three games against Ohio, Florida and Georgia.

In the three videos below you’ll see all of Dobbs’ third down incompletions from those three games and underneath them are the charted play-by-play accounts complete with air yards from the line of scrimmage, snap to throw times as well as a brief description of what happened.

As usual, I invite all of you to comment on my assessments of each play in addition to any other analysis you believe is necessary. This series should take roughly a week to finish and at that point I will post a recap of the data. Thank you for following along.
