    Berger's Blog On Morning Pract.

    CHAD RETURNS

    By Ken Berger
    I'm back. So is the blog. More importantly, so is Chad Pennington.
    It's only June 15, but today is a significant step in Pennington's return from right shoulder surgery in October. For the first time since training camp last August, Pennington is expected to practice twice in the same day.
    I just got finished watching the first practice, and Pennington looked smooth and in command -- but as expected, most of what the offense is working on at this point is the short passing game. Pennington's longest completion by far was a 35-yarder on a post route to Laveranues Coles -- on a blown coverage by Derrick Strait. Everything else was 15 yards or less.
    The biggest surprise was that it wasn't Pennington or Patrick Ramsey who strode to the line of scrimmage first with the starting offensive line. That honor went to rookie Kellen Clemens.
    To the media members in attendance, it certainly seemed significant that Clemens was getting the starter's reps in the rotation with Pennington, Ramsey, and Brooks Bollinger. Pennington scoffed at the notion, bristling at one point to a TV reporter who brought it up. Pennington explained that the rotation changes every day, and today it was Clemens' turn to get most of the reps behind the starting line in team drills.
    Clemens looked poised and in command, but he looked a lot better in individual drills and 7-on-7 than he did in full-squad drills. After consecutive passes that were intercepted by Eric Barton and batted down at the line by Bryan Thomas, one of the Jets' starting defensive players barked at Clemens, "I told you, rook, it's gonna be ugly for you."
    While I didn't come away with a strong opinion one way or another about Pennington's progress, I can say this without equivocation: this is a truly open competition for the starting job, and Pennington looks to me to be in for the fight of his career.
    I'll be back later to discuss the afternoon practice. Feel free to weigh in.

    It's early yet, but not exciting to hear that our short rookie QB is getting balls batted down at the line and presumably not seeing LB's underneath that lead to INT's..

    Maybe Bryan Cox is putting his stamp on the D all ready.

    Lol, I was already concerned when I saw his height especially next to the other QB in the rookie camp. All this does is provide evidence to turn my concern into a doubt...

    Yeah, they should have cut him before the afternoon session. So what he won't be playing a meaningful down until 2007 at the earliest.

    That was an attempt at sarcasm. Obviously, my expressing a concern about his height meant I wanted to cut him..

    Of course! Clemens won't see a meaningful down this season so what he does in a June 2006 minicamp is meaningless.
