Good fit for them until Henne is ready.

$5.75 a year for a disabled QB? I don't get it!

Pennington is considered a Vet. And after ny told him to get the Favre out, it was only a matter of time before someone picked him up. Besides something about miami has to be interesting enough to write about. Besides losing Taylor to the Greatest Team in the World! (IMO) So good for maimi, now they just have to focus on winning more than 1 game! HTTR!!!

Week One NYJ @ Miami just got that much more interesting. Go Dolphins.

out of the teams involved in the brett favre trade, miami made out the best.

GB looks like a sack of rotting a$$holes
the jets overpaid to put a good QB in a new system at 39 years old that may walk away
miami gets a starting QB for up to 5 years, or until the rookie is ready...

and yeah, pennington is noodle armed, but he's still a lot better than what they had, and i do believe henne will eventually be better, but in the meantime this'll get parcells instant results (Which is a big thing with him).

This is too much money for what Pennington brings to the table. I'm not impressed with the Tuna.

Lol, my friend, whos a Dolphins fan, use to always to debate me about weather or not Pennington was a Pro Bowl caliber QB (which for a certain amount of time he was) now he has him on his team (keep in mind I was arguing in favor of Pennington).

I can not believe the dolphins signed him,especially that much money and to be a starter,why not go after Favre if you wanted a qb? I've always liked Pennington,but I thought with his noodle arm that he would have been lucky to find a backup job somewhere,boy was I wrong

As far as Farve, Pennington, and the Dolphins are concerned.

1. One of the main factors in completing a Farve trade was Farves willingness to be traded to the team involved in a trade with the Packers. A team like the Dolphins who are now in complete rebuilding mode is not something Farve would have agreed to.

2. The Dolphins have lots of cap room and Pennington can still play quality football. I mean the guy came out of last year with an 86.1 QB rating last year and in a very scarce QB market (which includes QB's already on rosters) theres a premnium on decent QB play.

3. Miami is not like New York in terms of wind speed, with the exception of hurricane season.

I will say Pennington is no longer a pro bowl QB but for a team like the Dolphins I think he's a very good fit. In fact I think an accurate QB like Pennington is perfect for taking advantage of the YAC ability that a reciever like Ginn comes with. I will also say though that he's better then Josh McCown (who somehow always seems to find a job) and it'll give Chad Henne time to develop. Dis r low rick hi rewards.

If they're paying him that much I guess that means he's starting. I guess it also means that the guy from BYU is history.

Pennington can accellerate the effort more than Josh McCown would. He's not high profile enough to block Chad Henne's development. Favre seems to block everyones development.

The other thing, is that Pennington came free of picks and at a price the Dolphins set. Favre would have cost a pick, and Parcells likely didn't want to deal with the sideshow. He never does.

My wife is so freaking pissed at the dolphins right now. She used to always say, "at least they still have my other husbands (Thomas, Taylor) on the team". Now they are both gone, and they are getting Pennington for a QB. I'm going to love football season this year!!! HTTR

Re: Pennington to the Dolphins
 
The money is commensurate with what middling starting qb's get. You know, I never get it when people freak about teams "overpaying" when they are under the cap. Are people really that concerned about the owners' money? Because with a short term, no risk deal like this, which will never really impact the salary cap, that is the only real consideration.

I guess you can remove any deep routes or hail marys from their playbook.
But in all seriousness, this is actually a good pickup for them. He gives them a better chance to succeed than any other qb on their roster.
