Pennington is a short-passing QB with no arm. There is no way, NO WAY a QB like that can take a team to the Super Bowl. I don't care anymore about completions or his QB rating, I WANT A QUARTERBACK WHO CAN THROW!

Chad AT HIS BEST is a QB who will get you a 10-6 record and a first round playoff exit. His high completion percentage is totally misleading because most of them are passes that only go about 5 yards through the air. Defenses know that he is not a threat to throw deep and it absolutely kills any chance of the Jets putting points on the board when absolutely necessary. Also it is very hard to get any kind of running game established when every defense in the league stacks 11 guys in the box.

I think that with Chad's intelligence that he would be a great coach, but unfortunately he just doesn't have the physical tools to be anything more than a mediocre QB. Time to bring in Clemmens and see what he can do as the starter.

Pennington doesn't have a gun for an arm, but it's strong enough to stretch the field a bit and take some chances downfield -- the high-percentage, short-passing approach isn't getting the job done. It would also help if Jones could gain a few yards every now and then to take the pressure off the passing game, too!
