What Sayeth You All?


According to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, the Dolphins have already have contacted Chad Pennington.  Another rumor is that he will be checking out KC as well to reunite with Herm Edwards. 

The word out of NY is that Chad Pennington, a Bill Parcells draft pick, is being released by 4:00 PM eastern time. So, what do you think about this?

By now I am sure you know that Brett Favre is the new QB in NY.

    Uggh…can’t believe I’m going to say this but yea. Why not? If we are looking at Quincy Carter then we damn well should be looking at Pennington.

    I think Pennington could be effective in our offense mostly because I think our philosophy is going to be 4 yards and a cloud of dust so his lack of arm strength shouldn’t be that big of an issue if we are able to have an effective running game thus keeping us in 3rd and short situations.

    The biggest thing I like about Pennington is his completion percentage. He’s got a career 65.6% completion percentage.

    The fact of the matter is that Pennington is being dropped by the Jets. I don’t care who it is, we cannot lower ourselves to pick up a player that was dropped by the Jets because he was inadequate.

    Pennington has an arm weaker than most of our offensive linemen. he is injury prone and i reiterate, he was dropped by the Jets.

    What Miami SHOULD HAVE DONE was trade for BRETT FARVE and have him come in here, get our receivers on track, run our offense and most importantly have him take Chad Henne under his wing the same way Drew Bledsoe did with Tom Brady in New England and later Tony Romo in Dallas.

    It would be truly degrading if we pickup the Jets garbage and try to use it. I think McCown can do just as much if not more for us right now than Pennington.

    I think we should pick him up. He truly can’t be any worse than the beck Mccown expriment. We should sign him and let him play until henne is ready. Lets be honest beck has a slim chance of not be traded. He is cameron pick and he is not doing well in camp. I was a big fan of beck when he was in college. I think cameron destroyed his ability by making him start to early. He should go to baltimore with camerons sorry ass. We should have tried to get farve he could have helped our young reciver core out.

    I live close to Knoxville, TN. -where Chad played.  I was hoping the Dolphins would have gone after Bret Favre.  I understand the Dolphins are not in a win now mode.  My question is: when do you want to win?  Chad is not the answer in my opinion and I hope the Dolphins would not take him.  They probably will.  I am on the injured reserve list.  I will play for a few million guaranteed if they are going to take Chad.  I am not for Chad Pennington.  Let him play somewhere else.  I hope Parcels knows what he is doing.  I will be glad to eat my words if Pennington does very well this year.

    A weak armed dink ‘n dunker QB?


  • Brian Miller

    Yeah, pretty bad when you have to talk about CP

  • Shady

    That’s nothing, there’s actually people over at the Phinsider who think it’d be a great move!!!

    Go figure…

  • nasrdamus

    I agree it’s craziness but guys c’mmon Quincy Carter?!?! I’ll take CP over Quincy Carter any Day! So if it does happen it’s better then nothing we have nothing to lose … aside from going 0-16 lol it can’t get any worse so let’s see what happens….think positive!

  • volsnascar9

    Bring in Kurt Warner.  No, wait!  Warner is good and can’t play here.  The Dolphins need another QB to take up space-Pennington.  If the Dolphins have all that money to spend, do it and stop spending it on Olympic size swimming pools, mansions-if that is what these coaches are doing.  Spend it on this TEAM and make them better. 

    Brian, what are your thoughts?  I am tired of these has been players.  Kurt Warner at least can play and is good-He is proven.  CP has proven he can collect a paycheck.

  • volsnascar9

    Just heard the Packers may be interested in CP.  Go Pack GO!
