View Full Version : Chiefs If Favre goes to the Jets, does it affect the Chiefs?

My guess is they would keep Clemmons and let Pennington go. Would Pennington become our backup QB and Huard be sent packing?

IMO, Pennington is the younger Huard.

However, should Croyle get injured, I guess I'd prefer Pennington as a backup over Huard. Assuming that's the only option the team considers.

I'd make Thigpen the #2, unless there was a clear-cut better option, which right now, there isn't.

With the Jets going the signing vets route this offseason, going after Favre would not be surprising. As for Pennington, if he is signed to replace Huard I don't really see a problem with it.

Isn't Huard making like 2.5 million/year? Why would you eat that cap space just to swap out backups?

No. The NY Giants devalued him.

No way.

Croyle's the man unless he gets injured.

Yes, because Herm has defended Croyle through thick and thin. Croyle is the guy right now. I honestly don't see us getting another quarterback this year. If Croyle fails, yes, but no way we get another starter instead of Croyle right now.

It's not what he makes, it's what his signing bonus was.

If he's cut, his base salary goes away.

His signing bonus gets accelerated to the cap.

He has only one or two years left on his contract, and I don't believe his SB was all that substantial, so cutting him would have a minimal impact on the cap.

But he won't be cut.

Well, let's see. Brodie has been learning the new offense since, what, the day Gailey was hired? Pennington's been learning it since... never. So even if he showed up at Chiefs' camp 5 minutes ago, he'd be so far behind that he'd never catch up.

Also, Gailey designed the new offense around what his players can do. Brodie has a cannon for an arm and Pennington throws the ball from a limp noodle attached to his shoulder. Unless every single one of Gailey's pass plays involve routes under 10 yards, it may be something of a problem if his QB can't throw farther than that without launching up a wounded, wobbly duck.

Also, Pennington is 32 years old. If the Chiefs suddenly felt like bailing out on the stated goal of finding a young QB, and wanted to add a guy north of 30 for a season or two, why wouldn't they try to go after Favre themselves?

In summary, yes, if Pennington comes here (which he's not) he's gonna be a backup.

It wasn't meant to be serious, just ironic that his QB with the Jets has always been injured and the guy they want to be the Chiefs QB is the same story.

I am not so sure Pennington would be better than Thigpen. I also thought Pennington was a decent QB, but I have heard a lot of good things about Thigpen this season.

Despite the obvious hard on that Herm had for Pennington, I just don't see Pederson buying into the hype and bringing him in. If we are truly trying to get younger as a team then bringing in a weak armed 32 year old QB that has yet to really come back from his injury does nothing for us.

There was an article in the Star a couple of days ago that said Cox was the FB with the first team. He said the plays were the same as they ran at GT. So I am not sure the offense is being designed around what the palyers can do. And I see from Claythan today where a lot of short routes are being ran.


That being said. I have also seen/heard reports where the new offense is a hit with LJ at least.

New York Post
"Yesterday at Hofstra was Day 4 of the Jets quarterback competition and Day 3 of the Brett Favre watch. There was not much progress on either front. Neither Chad Pennington nor Kellen Clemens has stood out yet, and the Jets remained quiet on whether they are working on a deal with the Packers. Pennington has been better than Clemens so far, but camp is only a few days old and this competition figures to last the entire summer. Clemens continues to turn the ball over in practice, fumbling a snap and throwing an interception again yesterday. Jets coach Eric Mangini did not single Clemens out, but talked about how turnovers drive him crazy. "Some mistakes are obviously more apparent than ..."

Would not surprise me at all if hte Jets went for Favre. Tannenbaum and the Rat (the other Rat) have clearly chucked the Belichick method of building teams and have invested everythign they can to WIN NOW in order to save their jobs after last year's pathetic excuse of a season.

They signed some talent, of that there is no doubt. We'll see fi they can put it all together and at least not embarass themselves like they did last year.

And they had talent before, but much like KC, it was inconsistent or injured.

This should be a rebound year and I fully expect a playoff push. But I also expect a 2 year window and back to the suck...

If the Chiefs end up with Pennington, it will be because of the continued lack of confidence in Croyle. Pennington in KC means by week 4 he is the starter, not the back up........imo.

Let me say this, if you are hoping the Jets release Chad "Glass Arm" Pennington so your team can have a shot at him as a starter, you are going to have one hell of a long season. Pennington is one of the worst QBs in the league.

You guys got Herm, that was a total failure. If you guys get Pennington too, you should become Raiders fans.

Who would want him as the starter? I just asked if Favre went to the Jets, do you think Pennington will become our backup. I could see it given Herm likes Pennington.

no one WANTS Pennington for anything. If he ends up in KC it is because of Herm. And because of Herm, he will become the starter. I will become a Raider fan if that happens.:cuss:
