The Rocket Scientist Quarterbacking a NFL Playoff Contender

From a Wall Street Journal story by Andrew Beaton headlined “The Rocket Scientist Quarterbacking an Unlikely NFL Playoff Contender”:

When quarterback Joshua Dobbs subbed in for the Minnesota Vikings last week and led them to a dramatic victory just days after they traded for him, it amazed his teammates whose names he barely knew when he stepped onto the field.

It also left his former colleagues dumbfounded—which isn’t exactly easy to do considering they’re rocket scientists.

“The quickness that he absorbed that playbook is astounding,” says Scott Colloredo, NASA’s Director of Engineering at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.
