Good for Pennington. This guy was always a class act who left it all on the field. Even though few of us were sorry to see him go when Favre came aboard, we never doubted his effort despite some terrible injuries over the years - injuries sustained while trying to turn around this hapless franchise. So now, all of those qualities are benefitting the previously hapless Dolphins on whom the football gods are now smiling. For the Jets, as usual, no one is smiling. Dolphins 31, Jets 20.

Big time Jets fan here. If the Jets loose Sunday, my hat's off to Chad. The Jets have no one to blame but themselves.

I wish Chad the best.As LetsPlay2 said he left it all on the field every game. A bad OL lead to all his injuries, and to Favre's shoulder this season. Whatever happens Sunday, Chad can hold his head high knowing he proved all his critics wrong.

This could be right out of a movie. Football team gets Hall of Fame QB, dumps the existing one. He goes to a division rival and nearly beats former team in first game of the season. Now former QB can not only beat his former team, but knock them out of the playoffs. As much as I hate to admit this, Chad will beat Favre Sunday, and it won't be pretty.

in hollywood, the only ending can be that the JETS lose to CHAD & MIA.

in JETS world, its not the same ending. here's why:

if the jets lose, ERIC the ROBOT is out and we may get a real coach (I said "may"). if they win, but don't make the playoffs (most likely scenario), they win give ERIC the ROBOT another year to continue ruining the careers of 7 pro-bowlers and the lives every JETS fan.

here's my guess: either JETS win and so do both BALT and NE -OR- BALT or NE lose and we also lose to MIA

either way, its all more misery


SO FRUSTRATING to be a long suffering JETS fan

Naw man Jets win. Farve has been under this kind of pressure countless times before. How about Chad? This is probably the biggest game of his career. It will be a great game.

Look...Penn wouldn't be having this kind of year with the Jets, the Jets & their fans wouldn't allow it to happen...even Penn basically said as much, the negative energy makes you question yourself no matter how good you are & that reflects in your play...Favre is seeing that too, when he isn't on his back.

Every Jets fan needs the Dog Whisperer guy to come up, jab them in the side of the neck with one of his "sssh" deals until they get rid of their negative "poor me" energy and start acting like fans that support their team & its players vs. fans that just want something but are unwilling to give anything in return until they get it.

Who knows? If he was still on the Jets and they didn't have Favre, he might have been sitting on the bench watching Kellen Clemans play.

...and in the Jets' defense, Pennington usually would be injured by this time of the season. The fact that he stayed healthy all year if the real surprise.
