What was the point of saying it was a competition? It was obvious bullshit from the start. Then 5 days in, you have a winner? Has Eric Mangina caught a case of the dumbasses from Jets upper management?

Only questions about Pennington's health even opened up the starting spot in the first place. According to reports his arm strength is better than expected and he finally seems to be over his injuries from the last few years.

Overall I think even a health Pennington is a liability at QB. Even at his best, his arm has been really questionable. He has a nice touch, but can't throw an out with enough velocity to keep it from being picked. Jets are screwed in that Pennington is just good enough that you think you have a good QB, when in fact you don't.

Man-gina should go back to opening day last year to refresh himself on what he is in store for.

Isn't their offensive coordinator a Schottenheimer anyway? Does it matter who their quarterback is?

Just want to let you know that Mangini was just on 1050 ESPN radio and stated that nothing has been decided.

Just another bad rumor.

When healthy, Pennington has been one of the highest rated QBs in the history of the league. Sure, he has a noodle arm, but he could be a really good WCO qb. Too bad they're not running the WCO anymore.
