besides ditching taylor, they really have... great draft (henne, long, merling, etc), and they signed a ton of depth/solid starter types (very cheaply)...

i mean, they won't be great, but they are a better team.

Re: Pennington to the Dolphins

Pennington is a major upgrade of all the stiffs Miami started at qback last season. even with a noodle arm, and injury issues. to me, money well spent

Re: Pennington to the Dolphins

Good move by the Dolphins. They needed somebody, because Beck, Henne, and McCown aren't going to be doing anything special this season, not that Pennington will but he's an upgrade.

Re: Pennington to the Dolphins

Agreed, Pennington is a huge upgrade given the QB situation in Miami. This is a good move that Parcells made, and it gives Henne time to develop. Maybe the AFC East won't be so crappy this year.

Hey if I'm a Dolphin fan I would find this better than Beck/Henne/McCown.

Regardless of who is at QB that should be their game plan. They're not going to beat anyone through the air as it is. Might as well pound that rock.

Re: Pennington to the Dolphins

He was scheduled to make 6 Mil this year in NY and he signed for 11.5 over 2. He signed for below market value for a veteran starter, and below what he would have made in NY. He didn't even get an annual raise for inflation. My guess is that he was depending on that 6 Mil this year and it was removed from beneath his feet. Parcells, while many think he overpaid for Chad, probably just met Chad's needs and underpaid for a veteran starting QB (according to market value).

Re: Pennington to the Dolphins

Parcells drafted him back in his NYJ days so he knows what he is getting. Say what you want about Parcells but he does seem to turn teams around.

Pennington's WR's are Ted Ginn, Hagan and the big slow dude from Jacksonville who went to Va Tech. Outside of SF, Miami could have the worst passing game in the NFL. But I remember Hagan when he was at Ariz St. and he was a freaking animal. I thought he was going to be a stud in the pros.

I disagree. Favre has had at least two very reliable, and multi-playoff QB's come right out from under him. Matt Hasselbeck and Mark Brunell both went to the Playoffs multiple years, and Hasselbeck went to a Super Bowl. Kellen Clemons has the potential to be a franchise QB and take the Jets many places, especially given their recent additons to the offense. They are a good draft away from being Super Bowl contenders already with Favre at the helm. If they are indeed "rebuilding", Clemons should come out after Favre's short reign swinging for the fences. He just needs to pay attention and take advantage of the experienced mentor that Mangini went out and got for him.

As far as the 'Phins go, Pennington is an upgrade, but I really think that Tuna wants to look like he is trying to improve, all the while thinking about next years draft spot high atop the board.

Re: Pennington to the Dolphins

Hopefully, he will do well in Miami. He still is a good QB, but doesn't compare to Favre's numbers.

Do you think that was Favre, or do you think that was Ron Wolf and Mike Holmgren finding great west coast QBs in the late rounds?

I think, re: Clemens, that he's got a lot of talent, but Favre has nothing to do with whether he reaches it or not. Favre is simply blocking him from playing.
