Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports via Twitter that quarterback Chad Pennington will undergo surgery on Thursday to repair an ACL that he tore while playing basketball recently.
Per Salguero, Pennington isnít ruling out playing in 2011.
It makes sense. If the lockout lasts into September or beyond, quarterbacks with the ability to step in and play will be in demand. Pennington demonstrated three years ago his ability to do just that; after he was dumped by the Jets for Brett Favre, Pennington helped turn a 1-15 Dolphins team into an 11-5 division winner.
Though the rehab will be more of a challenge since heís on his own, the last guy weíd ever bet against is Pennington.
[QUOTE=gcherd;3995532]People who doubted Chad Pennington in the past have always been proven wrong; it will be no different this time. :yes:[/QUOTE]
In 2008 he game managed Miami to a playoff appearance, in which he threw five interceptions in, and has managed to throw in four games since then.
I'm not quite sure what you think he's going to do at 34 years old coming off yet another shoulder surgery, two of them actually, but also a torn ACL.
Your love affair with Chad is beyond belief. I respect him, as do many, but the fact that you think he can still be a consistent viable Quarterback is beyond any thought or comprehension in this universe.
I am about as tired of seeing his name as I am of seeing Brett Favre's name quite honestly.[/QUOTE]
