    Chad thinks the game cerebrally about as well as any QB we've had since Don't Strock. His problem was always one of not having the tools to make certain throws reliably. He lacked arm strength to throw the deep out to the wide side of the field, or the bomb without winding up and putting a lot of air under the ball. So, he checked down a lot when those throws weren't wide open.

    He could easily call/teach a far more aggressive game for a strong armed QB with a quick release like Tannehill. Remember, we run a variant of the WCO, which Bill Walsh designed in Cincinnati specifically for a weak armed QB, and improved it in San Francisco for a QB with a less than stellar arm.

    Pennington's short passing style suits the WCO, and he would likely feel very comfortable in it.

    I'd love to see Pennington pursue coaching. But, like everyone else, he needs experience before he merits an NFL assistant coach position.

    Pennington understands how to play the position and is very intelligent as well as articulate. Regardless of whether or not you think he was a GOOD quarterback -- and he was certainly a limited one -- I do think he is the sort of person who could be an excellent coach and if he is actually interested in jumping into a position like that I think he would be an interesting addition to the staff.

    Philbin, on if Pennington might be here on more than a part-time basis: "I don't know about that ... He's a busy man, a family man."

    Pastor stands up in Church from the pulpit and asks the congregation if they know what the resurrection is about? Small child in a pew puts his hands up and would like to answer, pastor asks the child to answer, Boy says "If the resurrection persists over 4 hours you have to call a doctor"

    I agree we need RT to attack the field a little more than the way Chad played, but Marino would be the worst QB coach EVER IMO. What Danny did, probably NO one else can do. He did so many things wrong so often you would think he was a rookie, but he found a way to make them work. He WILLED the ball to go where he wanted. Sometimes it looked like he TRIED to find the man double covered, so he could prove he could get it to him any way. The vast majority of his throws were "OH NO, good throw Danny" types of throws. He threw to windows that were just not there, yet some how he would get them there. That is NOT the kind of player you want teaching a young player.

    Chad didn't have one tenth the talent that Danny had, but what talent Chad had he made the most of. Chad played better than he was, I am not so sure you can say that about Danny, too often Dan's ego got in his own way. I personally feel that Chad would be the better coach between the two. I know I will get flamed for this, but that is really the way I think it was.

    Yes. I would definitely welcome Pennington back as an intern quarterback coach. Our current QB guys will benefit greatly by Pennington's insights and experience.

    Next to Marino's fake spike touchdown to Ingram, the hook-and-ladder play comes in second. What a beauty.

    Chad played the way he did because it was the only way for him to be effective. As a QB coach, I strongly doubt he'd try to limit Tannehill and mold him into CP2, instead trying to aggressively make the most of his arm and movement skills. CP is as football smart as they come. I think he'd be the perfect QB coach for Ryan actually
