I was of the opinion that nothing could really get worse than today’s news that the Miami Dolphins have turned to the Cleveland Browns reject to fix their anemic offense.
I was wrong.
According to Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post, Chad Pennington is going to try and come back from his fourth shoulder surgery because he still has the “fire” within.
IN other words, there is the Dolphins veteran QB they have been looking for.
Pennington is also a 100 percent endorser of new OC Brian Daboll and made his feelings about the man known.
“A lot of the coverage knowledge that I have, and understanding defenses, comes from Brian,” Pennington said. “The year I spent with him, I just learned so much about how defenses attack offenses, and all of the nuances of coverage that I didn’t understand before.”
“He made me a better quarterback,” Pennington said, “and helped make me become a quarterback who not only understood what I was doing, but how to do it, and why – why we are running certain plays and why we were attacking certain coverages the way we were.”
Hear that Sparano? Daboll? Ireland? Pennington is using the right words to make sure you don’t cast him off summarily into the retirement heap just yet.
And you thought it couldn’t get any worse. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
If I were a betting man, I would put money down that after Sparano gets canned sometime in the next three years, that Mangini will be his replacement.
I’m just saying.
