It won’t be long for Chad

One AFC scout said he was stunned by the lack of zip on some of Chad Pennington’s deep passes against the Raiders. Oakland secondary coach Ron Lynn said, in his pre-game film study of the Jets, he noticed that Pennington’s long balls tended to float.

Some people around here are acting as if this is some kind of revelation. As Herman Edwards would say, “Hello?” Pennington never was billed as a strong-armed quarterback, remember?

Pennington enjoyed so much success this season because of uncanny accuracy, good decision-making and a system that fits his abilities. He also was well-schooled by coordinator Paul Hackett. read more

Final Goodbye to 2002 Season
2003-01-14 12:00:00

The most chilling aspect of the National Football League season is its end. There is a unique finality to it all.

In this case, the players return from a cross country trip, get maybe four hours of sleep, return to the complex, clean their lockers, attend a team meeting, and then meet with the press.

Chad Pennington’s passes were sailing high and off target. Or short and low. He still thought he’d lead the New York Jets to another victory.

After all the amazing things Pennington has pulled off this season, he couldn’t do it this time in the Jets’ 30-10 AFC playoff loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

“There’s a saying that as the quarterback goes, the team goes,” he said. “I didn’t go today. read more

Raiders end Jets’ run with 30-10 blowout
The Oakland Raiders found the surest road to the AFC championship game: Stay at home and avoid controversy.
No tuck rule. No snowy night games in New England. Instead, another victory against the New York Jets at the Black Hole.

I think we all owe Chad Pennington and the New York Jets a Standing Ovation! That’s right, a standing ovation.

It hurts to lose a game like that for the Fans. Now take all the built up frustration you’ve had all season. The emotions, the feelings of being so close to the long awaited Super Bowl appearance and then lose. Take all of that, bottle it up from every Jets fan and it wouldn’t even come close to how the Jets players feel right now. read more
