The Cardinals strategy for their Week 1 game against the Commanders has been unveiled, and it appears that veteran quarterback Joshua Dobbs will start, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

Despite the Cardinals‘ head coach, Jonathan Gannon, attempting to maintain a veil of secrecy around his choice of starting quarterback, the news found its way into the public domain.

Joshua Dobbs, a seasoned quarterback, is slated to lead the Cardinals onto the field in their opening game against the Washington Commanders. In a supporting role, rookie 5th-round pick Clayton Tune will be handling backup duties.

Ian Rapoport noted that the team plans to assess the quarterback situation on a weekly basis, but for now, the season will commence with Dobbs at the helm.

Coach Gannon had remained enigmatic about his starting quarterback, even quipping on Wednesday, “I ain’t telling you anything” in response to inquiries about who would be under center come Sunday.

“Players are aware of the game plan,” Gannon assured.

With this revelation, the shroud of uncertainty surrounding the Cardinals’ quarterback position has dissipated, providing clarity for fans and enthusiasts alike as they eagerly anticipate the start of the 2023 NFL season.
