When Josh Dobbs cut, turned up the field and turned on the proverbial afterburners for a 36-yard gain during the second quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers’preseason-opening win three weeks ago, eyebrows were raised.

After all, Dobbs weaved in and out of Tampa Bay tacklers, made some Buccaneers defensive backs miss and accelerated past others with an apparent ease that reminded some of a young Michael Vick.

“Obviously, he’s a lefty,” Dobbs said, not exactly shying away from the comparison.

“I’ve known I was quick. I’ve been able to make plays with my legs (as well as) my arm throughout my football career.”
