In the wake of a late-night deal that sent Brett Favre to the New York Jets for a conditional draft choice, Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum informed reporters that starting quarterback Chad Pennington would be released early Thursday morning. Will he end up in Kansas City?

Favre was dealt from the Packers to the Jets for a conditional draft pick that could land Green Bay anywhere from a 4th to 1st round draft pick, depending on Favre’s ability to lead his new team to the Super Bowl.

The trade wasn’t a surprise, because the Jets have been one of the most active NFL teams this offseason. Tannenbaum was hoping to land Favre when it became clear he wanted to play football again, but still had respect for Pennington.

“He gave his heart and soul to this organization for a long, long time," said Tannenbaum of Pennington. " I really appreciate everything he has done."

Acquiring Favre puts the Jets in a position where they no longer need Pennington, however. New York is committed to Kellen Clemens, who will be Favre's backup.

The Jets have to cut Pennington before they officially add Favre to the roster, because they have to clear nearly $12 million in cap space to complete the trade.

It’s logical that Chiefs Head Coach Herm Edwards would have an interest in Pennington because of their close relationship when Edwards was in New York.

Will it happen? According to our league source, Pennington is a vested veteran, so he does not have to go through the normal waiver process. He can choose to sign with any team.

Per that same source, Pennington has the Chiefs at the top of the list of teams that he’d like to play for in 2008.

The good news for the Chiefs is that they have the cap room to absorb both Pennington’s contract and veteran Damon Huard’s contract.

The Chiefs, who are preparing for their preseason opener against the Chicago Bears tonight, had planed to play Huard in the second half. But those plans could change if the Pennington rumor heats up throughout the day.

Stay tuned to Warpaint Illustrated.com for more breaking news on Chad Pennington and the Chiefs. Look for our review of the Chiefs-Bears game Friday morning.

Pennington would be a Trent Dilfer insurance policy for a team with a strong defense and a promising rushing attack. One of the kids is the QBotF and Pennington would be in the same role as Huard (#3) unless the Chiefs were making a serious run at the AFCW crown. Not gonna happen.

I think if and when Croyle is injured, we should sink or swim with another young quarterback... like Tyler Thigpen. Any veteran should just be the emergency 3rd. I don't believe Pennington would be our emergency 3rd, do you?

If the Chiefs pick him up the only action he better see is if Croyle is broken. Croyle better get this ENTIRE YEAR at least. Logically it makes sense because Hutard is THE BAD, but I can't trust Carl and Co to make the right decision with Croyle. Posted via Mobile Device

That's the problem. If Croyle gets broken I'd rather see Thigpen. Thigpen would get the start ahead of Huard, but not ahead of Pennington.

And in that case, what does it matter who the number 3 is? Find another young guy somewhere and play him. Why pay a vet any more than you are already paying shitty Huard.
The problem with Pennington is that Herm would be, IMO, antsy to play him as early as he could.

Chad Pennington would be the best, most prepared backup QB in the league.

He's smart as hell and would be great to have in the meeting room with Croyle. He would need to learn the offense so would not be a threat to Croyle until late in the season and only then if Croyle falls flat on his face. Brodie would have nothing to fear if he performs even marginally well.

It's win win.

Would this really be the worst thing in the world? Some of you guys are taking it WAY too hard. Pennington is better than Huard, I'm not sure anyone could disagree with that, so he would immediately improve our QB ranks.

Also, does anyone truly, truly believe that this is the season Brodie Croyle makes it through a full season? Pennington would be a very nice insurance policy for when Croyle is laying on the ground grabbing his knee around week 4.

all it says is that pennington is interested "per our league source". well you'd think that being out of work, he'd be interested in work pretty much anywhere.

saying he is "interested" is zero risk to the writer, because even if he signs someplace else you can say "he was still interested".

The Chiefs, who are preparing for their preseason opener against the Chicago Bears tonight, had planed to play Huard in the second half. But those plans could change if the Pennington rumor heats up throughout the day.
Are we to believe that just a ridiculous, unfounded rumor is going to change the Chiefs plans on who is to play at QB, less than 12 hours before the game?

If we were talking about the 3rd quarterback I think I would prefer sticking with Huard anyway. He has a rapport with both the young guys. Croyle was talking about that recently, about how much he was learning from Damon and how supportive he had been last year. Let's stick with the guy Croyle and Thigpen know and are comfortable with as a mentor.

That's why QB rating is overrated. A QB's "rating" goes up if he takes a sack instead of throwing the ball away. It also gets inflated if he throws a bunch of dump-offs to RBs instead of pushing the ball down the field.

chiefs1okie
08-07-2008, 10:36 AM
We have a new offensive co-ordinator who in turn scrapped what was left of the "Vermiel Offense"
All of our quarterbacks are learning a new offense (as Pennington would have to do)
Our #1 WR has a grand total of ONE year experience but could very well make the pro bowl this year
We have the best (arguably) TE to ever play the game
One of the most dynamic RB's a position in which we are loaded at by the way
Our defense has continued to improve over the last couple years with several top ten rankings in defensive categories last year

We may be a "young" team, but we DO have some extraordinary talent on both sides of the ball.

Suppose, just for a minute that we are 10 games in and are sitting at 6-4 just for arguments sake. We need to win 4 of the last six to at least clinch a wild card..... Croyle does indeed get hurt and is listed as week to week.... now we are not interested in developing future talent, but instead are focused on winning NOW to secure a play off berth.... humor me....

Huard is not hungry anymore, it was his team and he got demoted to third string... he has nothing to prove and is ultra conservative using check downs and safety valves in order to manage the game..
Pennington sees an opportunity to show why he was brought here as a game tested and playoff experienced QB, and is excited about the chance to be the hero as happened in N.Y. and is striving to get the ball in the hands of Bowe or Darling streaking 40 yards down the sidelines....

????

Who would you rather have sitting in the wings?

If Brodie Croyle can't handle a guy coming in to be the backup, then mentally he will never make it in the NFL.

I don't care if we bring him in or not. If at some point someone beside Croyle is starting that just means Croyle is a failure and we should be looking at QB's next year. It doesn't matter who his backup is.

If the Chiefs sign Pennington and Croyle ends up sucking, you will see 09 as the year of the Chad. Herm will make sure of it. Then if Chad fails in 09 then we'll see another coaching staff and a house cleaning finally.

How is my statement bullshit? First, whether he can make it in the NFL or not is already in question. Second, Croyle has already expressed that he is more confident knowing that his job is secure, opposed to competition.

1. No one doubts that the Chiefs are interested in Puss-arm. But if an article is going to make the claim, then it has to have sourced information to support it. This article doesn't. The headline is false.

2. I'm not worried about Croyle if we bring in Vag-arm. I'm worried about Herm.

I don't care if we bring him in or not. If at some point someone beside Croyle is starting that just means Croyle is a failure and we should be looking at QB's next year. It doesn't matter who his backup is.

We already know Chad isn't the guy. If Chad's here and Brodie isn't starting, then Chad starts. That means that we don't get to find out if Thigpen is the guy.

Jets | Chiefs interested in Chad Pennington
Thu, 7 Aug 2008 10:11:57 -0700

Claythan, of Warpaint Inc., reports The Kansas City Chiefs are interested in acquiring New York Jets QB Chad Pennington, expected to be released as a result of the Jets acquiring Brett Favre. When asked about possibly becoming a Chief, Pennington responded, "Are you kidding me? Behind that O-line? Tell Herm thanks, but I'd rather just hold a clipboard here and live."

This is what I am basing the statement on:

Q: Does this camp feel any different knowing you’re the starter as opposed to competing for the job?

CROYLE: “Of course. Last year at this time, I was competing to get a starting job. This year it’s a different kind of pressure. Last year I put pressure on myself to try to win the job. This year people are looking at me to put us in the right plays and put the ball where it’s supposed to be. There’s always going to be pressure, you just deal with it and play with it.”

So...if Croyle sucks and Thigpen sucks, then what? It seems to me it will be very difficult for our other young offensive players to improve when the QB's suck. How do others improve when the person leading the offense can't do the job?

Pennington is a better QB than Huard. If Pennington gets hurt - big deal. It isn't like Huard was going to carry the Chiefs to the Super Bowl. If you believe any of the accounts of practice it doesn't seem like Thigpen has a shot either. Pennington can come in, dump the ball off and execute Herm's system. With his experience he could pull out a few wins against other bad teams. All of the other young players get experience and Herm and Carl get a few wins which buys another year.

Pennington has value to Herm and Carl and Hunt. I personally don't think Herm could make the Super Bowl if he had Joe Montana in his prime. I don't want Herm and Carl around at all, but I realize that Hunt has apparently bought into Herm. If Croyle sucks and is yanked, or gets hurt (likely) then Pennington affords Herm and Carl and Hunt the best chance of winning a few games which lets them tell the season ticket holders we are on the right track.

IMO, Gailey is going to run a system that Herm approves of - power running and a safe, short passing attack. He'll play to the strengths of the players more than Solari did, but at the end of the day if the OL doesn't work nothing is going to change.

Whats the difference. Huard provides no threat to the development of the Chiefs younger QB"S, were as Pennington does, it gives the dulisional true fans something to hang the 7-9 hopes to. Give them a reason to boo any young QB that is trying to develop in a very none QB friendly offense.

Seems to me, if Croyle sucks and we bring in Pennington, who I believe is better than Huard and Thigpen, at least the rest of the O will get a chance to improve. Then we bring in a new young QB that will be working with a semi established/improved offense.

I'm serious. I walked away afraid of that. We have talent at the offensive skill positions, and I think we have improved at CB, DT, and at LB (just a hair). The only place we've stepped back is DE.

as far as Pennington is concerned.

Its not comfortable to sit here and just be ok with losing. Mentally our team needs wins to know what that feels like.

According to Adam Schefter, the Chiefs are interested in Pennington. I think he said Pennington would rather go to Minnesota though, not sure but I think he said that.

A true playoff/super bowl contender (Minnesota), or a 5 win team (Kansas City)...hmm, go figure!

I think Minnesota is better off with Tavaris but it wouldn't hurt to bring in Chad...if I were Minnesota I'd take a chance and make him the backup...and if they start 0-2 because Tavaris blows then you put him in...but if any team (other than maybe Miami) brings him in and anoints him starter, they are being dumb.

I'd love to see him be our backup, Thigpen 3, Huard cut. We have enough cap space to eat his $2.5M...maybe someone gives us a 7th for him? I've seen crazier things...hell, he's a great #3 QB according to the Patriots...

Then that's what they are.

You don't have to have the #1 pick in the draft to get a good QB.

How many franchise QB's are out there?

With Herm...and what Herm wants to do...all we need is a dominant defense and a Jeff Garcia and we can win a Super Bowl...

Problem is, we don't have a dominant defense...

If our defense was dominant, like it will be in a few years, I'd be all for getting a Chad Pennington or Jeff Garcia EVERY year until our defense can no longer win games...

Herm is building a team that wins with defense...so instead of wasting years with the Brodie Croyle's of the world, I have no problem with a Jeff Garcia veteran every year...until we stumble into a franchise QB...something most teams don't have as it is...

The defensive improvement continued for the Chiefs a year ago as Kansas City ranked in the NFL’s top fi ve in nine different different defensive categories. The Chiefs led the league in thirddown defense (31.3%) and forced a league-high 121 negative plays. KC also ranked second in the NFL in Red Zone defense (14.5 TD pct.).


Well, then we are at least knocking on the door. BTW, I'm comfortable with vet QBs, too.

I thought we were more than solid at times last year but there is no doubt, without Jared Allen, we took a major step back...at least for now.

Not trying to be obnoxious, but....

Isn't this the philosophy that we have been working with since 1969?

Per Rotoworld.com

In addition to the Dolphins, the Chiefs are reportedly interested in free agent Chad Pennington.
Pennington wouldn't fit Kansas City's maniacal youth movement, but at least he'd make the NFL's worst QB depth chart look a bit more respectable. If the Chiefs acquire Pennington, Damon Huard would be shown the door. Aug. 7 - 8:05 pm et

I call Bullshit....

Herm might want to get to 11 wins on a season before he magically learns enought to coach a team to a super bowl victory...

As long as I am alive, Martha nor Herm will every sniff a superbowl victory.

That article never stated that the Chiefs are actually interested. I'll believe it til I hear a comment from the Chiefs themselves.
