If he is a free agent, then he isn't a Miami dolphins qb.
I like Pennington, seems like a great guy. He's got some unfortunate bad luck, that's for sure. Hope he's able to come back from this in some way.
I know this, I'd take Pennington bum shoulder/knee and all over Dan O.
Even if this had happened on April 1 I would have never doubted it. Guy is breakable
We should get Pennington into our coaching pipeline. That guy would make a helluva coach someday.
Pennington was a great QB that one year in Miami. He was an MVP candidate that year. That was the last season he was healthy. The years he was healthy in NY he was very consistent. I think he'd be a great coach myself.
Vinny and I had several discussions that if you could put Chad's head on Carr's body you would have a truly elite QB. Didn't work out that way for either one.
That would be scary. Pennington had a weak arm, but he could work the field with his noodle passes and could get it done. His cement shoes always got him injured though.
Trying to look at the bright side you have to consider that this sets him up for an epic, never before done, probably never will be broken 3rd comeback players of the year award.
If you could put Pennington's head on most QBs, you'd have an elite QB. I truly believe the guy has an understanding of the game and reading defenses that rivals Manning. He just didn't have the physical package.
Need to get those smarts in the Texans organization.
Pennington was a pretty good athlete coming out of Marshall. His arm wasn't great, but on the level of pre-2010 Schaub. But, Pennington had a rotator cuff injury in 2004 and never could get much on the ball after that. How he continued to have success is pretty amazing.
Pennington was a Rhodes Scholarship finalist, so he's probably too smart to enter the NFL coaching world of 80 hour work weeks. He was a journalism major, so Pennington will likely become a broadcaster.
That's what I meant. He has had a couple shoulder injuries (maybe three?). Now this. His body just didn't hold up for him is what I meant.
