Will Chad Pennington go the way of Don Majkowski?:

Great story. I didn't realize there were rotator cuff problems with some QBs. Is Pennington playing this afternoon against the Jags?

Gee, I just read back to back fillers about Chad and Jeremy. Makes me want to break out in song.

A good story that poses some very interesting questions.

Ah the Majik Man--I had kind of forgotten about him.

I remember those days of the Majik Man... He was suppost to be the savior of Green Bay and he did a good job while there but the day he went down will always be remembered by all Green Bay fans because that was the beginning of what I believe as one of the greatest QB's to ever walk on a field and not just because Im a Packer diehard and now its depressing to see such a wonderful career come to an end not to long from now

I know what you mean about Him. Then Favre comes along and we forget about the Majik Man. Favre was able to do was Don's injury wouldnt allow...

They've just pulled Chad early in the third quarter. He doesn't look comfortable even standing on the sidelines. Eugggghhhhh. I remember Majkowski. There was a lot of hope with him, and when he went down, the Packers just got lucky with Favre. They could just as easily have had no QB for the next decade (cf. the Bengals).

I wonder what Richard Todd's up to these days.

I wonder what happened to Lynn Dickey

Ahh, reminds me of Tony Mandarich, for some reason. There's still a poster of Don Majkowski in my brother's old room upstairs in my mom's house. Majik man indeed!

Pennington sure as shit looks awful so far - and you've gotta worry about that arm strength. He was having difficulty hitting 30 yards in the first two weeks. It doesn't look good.

Regardless, The Chuck Cecil Story on DVD needs to happen.

C'mon chuck cecil? Please tell me your being sarcastic.

Pennington looked terrible against the Jags. There was nothing on his passes at all. The defenders could stack the line, knowing that the long ball was a near impossibility.
posted by rcade at 12:30 PM on September 26
Chad's got some severe problems. His passes were floating like balloons yesterday, and now it sounds like the Jets may be down to Brooke Bollinger at QB (maybe Vinny will be coming back). It's beginning to sound an awful lot like Majkowski. Majik hails from right up the road from me, the Polish quarterback captial of the world, western New York (Majkowski, Depew High School) and Ron Jaworski (Lackawanna High School), both outside of Buffalo.

C'mon chuck cecil? Please tell me your being sarcastic. No way. Any time a little guy playing safety makes the front cover of Sports Illustrated's NFL preview issue under a headline like "Is Chuck Cecil Too Vicious for the NFL", they've got a lifetime fan in me.

Hey, Quincy Carter's available, as is Jeff George and Tim Couch. (I wonder if the Jets, Cards or Packers have called, say, Anthony Calvillo.)
posted by chicobangs at 02:33 PM on September 26
Cavillo? who is he? AM I supposed to know him?
posted by daddisamm at 02:35 PM on September 26
daddisamm: Anthony Calvillo. Though on second look he's a little old, he's a proven QB who has won at the just-below-NFL level and whose arm is miraculously still connected at the shoulder. Seriously, though. If I was a GM anywhere, I'd make sure I didn't rule out anyone who's ever read a defense and still has all their limbs in working order. Arena League, Europe, sandlots, YMCA pickup leagues, troops currently serving in Iraq, whatever works. And it's only week three.

Hey, what about Shane Falco?

Let us pretend that movie never happened. Keanu should stick to playing French-Canadian goalies in sports films.

Jets Quarterback Chad Pennington Out for Season With Torn Right Rotator Cuff Three games into the season, and it is over for the Jets. Maybe for Chad Pennington, too. And we're not talking season. We're talking career.

Damn, and with the schedule they have comming up. Curtis Martin is going to get worn out in the next couple of weeks, if he already wasn't there.
posted by jojomfd1 at 12:03 AM on September 27
"From now on it's Brooks Bollinger's team." ... And that's the sound of a million Jets fans turning the channel. Pennington's 29 now, so he ain't no spring chicken. He's probably done.
posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 07:52 AM on September 27
I love "J-E-T-S: Just End The Season." So by the time the Jets draft a new QB and get him up to speed, we're talking another two or three years, which means Curtis Martin's basically finished too. Maybe they should consider a draft-day trade involving Martin, who still has some good years left in him, as bait to procure maybe two high picks. They'd have next year to get them up to speed and the Jets could aim to be where the Bengals are now in '07. I could live with that possibility.

The above is of course assuming they go something like 4-12 and get a high draft number, which seems like a decent bet now.

I know this is long gone as for a post but yes I remember good ol' Chuck.He was one of the hardest hitting S.O.B He was another legend in my eyes that walked on Lambeau.The thing I will always remember bout Chuck is his nose and everytime he hit someone hard it broke open and started bleeding.
