as for everything else, i agree with everything u said. it is funny how the penny oranges will peg that san diego game on him when he left the game early with a shoulder injury. we could have still won.
also, i dont even need to ask u this, but im sure u r mad excited to watch this sundays game just like i am. i mean, i get pumped for every game, but i kinda missed pennington. its a shame how people just bash the guy whenever they can, and tend to forget the only happeiness us fin fans have had in our football lives over the past 8 years plus was because of pennington. without him, we would be right now on 8 plus years of no playoffs, and possibly 9. in my short life so far, it was one of the my happiest moments that year.
people love to say how he cant win the big one. well that is the biggest crap i have ever heard. there are plenty of incredible qbs who r ring-less, like Marino, Fouts, Tarkenton, Kelly, Moon, etc, does not mean they cant win the big one,( well maybe Kelly and Tarkenton bc they had their chances with solid teams) and im not saying Pennington is in those qbs league, but there r also qbs like dilfer, johnson, hostetler,etc who have won and Pennington is better than those guys.
with the right amount of talent, penny can be a leader on a Superbowl team. he wont throw for 350 yds and 4 tds weekly, but he deff is capable of reaching the Superbowl, considering the guys i have mentioned have won it, and guys like Rex Grossman have appeared in them.
the best anti penny one is how he does poor vs top tier defenses. no ****, that is why they are called top tie defenses. not because every qb throws for 350 yds and 5 tds on them, but bc they are dominant defenses. just look at rich gannon, 2002 mvp, great raider offense, faces a top notch bucs defense in the superbowl, throws 5 ints.
i got faith in penny and i am happy to have him back as our qb.
Well he'll use Marshall a hell of alot more than Henne.
Mallett or Luck in 2011
Deshaun Watson is the TRUTH!
could he use him any less, lol.Originally Posted by Phinatic8u;1063668332[B
all the henne lovers will say how marshall is on pace for his best season in rec, but ppl who watch the games know he is not being used right.
People, if Ross cleans house maybe we draft the guy in the 1st round. I'm not happy we may be set back but what is watching Henne throw pick after pick going to do for us? Should we be happy about that instead? Or waiting another 2 seasons to find out he sucks, is that what would satisfy you? **** that.
The sooner we get this thing restarted, the sooner we can become contenders again. I have news for you, Henning is toast. Henne, who knows. But this offense cannot continue, because we don't contend with ANY of the big dogs with what we had going for us. 0-4 against those top teams, not satisfied.
Now, call me a tool, or *******, or whatever, but I want what's best for this football team. I couldn't care less about individual players. They are here today, gone tomorrow. Proof in the pudding? Look at #99, all the proof you need.
Matt Ryan should be a Miami Dolphin.
- Greg CoteOn this night it was just the latest reminder that, for this franchise, it seems all the best moments are seen through the prism of the rearview, and ever-receding.
I still fail to see how this move to Pennington is anything but the coaches trying to save their jobs at the expense of the team long term.
Let us see Thigpen, let us see Henne...but this move leaves us just as screwed at knowing where the future of the most important position on the team is next year.
The most upsetting thing is that Parcells taught Ireland that QBs can be found in the later rounds, so even if we do draft a QB it will be some shaky prospect.
Well I'll be damned. WV was right again and called this weeks in advance and everyone gets mad at him.
Pennington is such a classy guy. Can't help but root for him. And hope we rebound somehow.
I just don't see it happening though.
Henne got ****ing screwed by Sparano and Henning.
Sparano and Henning are egomaniac, stubborn, one way conversation type of people.
-the perception that this was a desperation move that was made to save the coaching staff's jobs
-the perception that they cut Henne's development/evaluation period short (21 starts to be exact) for the sake of saving the coaching staff's jobs
-the perception that win or loss, postseason run or not, starting Pennington right now makes for a lot of questionmarks at the QB position in 2011 and beyoond
No mercy for posters who are:
-incapable of adjusting & reforming their original opinions on a player/coach
-incapable of complimenting a player/coach they don't like or criticizing a player/coach they do like
-believe that what they think they see is beyond reproach
-incapable of exchanging opposing thoughts & ideas to arrive at a new & more refined point of view
You know who you are...
