Thread: Chad's playcalling at the line is a HUGE reason for the Jets' success this year

    Chad's playcalling at the line is a HUGE reason for the Jets' success this year

    Pennington's ability to make calls at the line of scrimmage in the no-huddle offense has been a major reason for the offense's productivity this year, if not the major reason. It's well-known that the no-huddle prevents the defense from making substitutions, to bring in rested players, or players who would be beneficial in a particular situation. This, combined with Chad's ability to quickly read the defenses, and determine exploitable weaknesses, has been a huge factor in the Jets' offense.

    If you recall early in the season, the Jets were having trouble with both their running game, and their defense. It was the playcalling at the line that gave them those early wins. The no-huddle plays into Chad's strength, his brain. In the few seconds he has while the play clock runs down, he has to analyze and process a lot of information in a short period of time. He is very good at that, being aware of the game situation, the state of his team and the opposing defense, reading the defense and finding weaknesses, and determining what kind of play could exploit that weakness. This decision-making and leadership at the line has probably been the biggest factor in their success thus far. Credit should go to Mangini and Shot, for seeing this and allowing Chad to thrive under this. It is quite a turnaround from the Hackett system, where Chad was basically a slave to the coordinator's calls.

    Sure, Pennington has made some bad decisions, but he's made a lot, lot more good decisons as opposed to bad ones. I think this is what Eric Mangini is referring to when he praises Chad's decision making. His accuracy has been off on some throws, but that is to be expected after going through two shoulder surgeries.

    A lot of his decision-making comes down to the hard work he and the coaches do in scouting the opposition. The extensive preparation they do plays a major role in the game execution. An encouraging thing is that the more Chad plays in this system, the better he will get at it. It must be complicated having to do make so many decisions in such a short period of time, but that plays to his strength.

    The biggest drawback is that a noisy crowd could make it difficult for him to communicate with his teammates. Miami could pose a problem in that regard.

    Totally agree, great post. Not worried about crowd noise in Miami, however. There will be plenty of Jet fans at the game.

    One of the thing I noticed early on is Chad was not leading his receivers on the swing or outlet pass. As of late he is leading the receiver and not hesitating to get the pass out there quickly. The difference in improvement is more than a few yards everytime he throws to the side.

    In other words he is working on his game and improving every week with the rest of the team.

    So true! If arm strength makes a good QB, Ramsey would be starting and Ryan Leaf would still be playing........

    This is a GREAT POST!!!! And IMO the strongest indictment of the HERM era. I make no bones about it I am a Herm apologist, I think that that he was a good HC period, but that Mangini already is an appreciably better HC and not even after one FULL YEAR!!!

    My main points in critiquing Herm has nothing to do with clock management or in game adjustments etc but first and foremost with his unwillingness to free up Chad. Herm can say all he wants that he didn't like how the offense was being run but he never put the game in the hands of the smartest and ablest guy on the field and that man was and is Chad Pennington.

    Yes Chad is getting the job done but the fact that he is getting the opportunity at all is evidence of a superior HC and we have Mangini to thank for that

    The team is doing well right now and Chad is part of that. You got to give him credit for his part on offense. In the beginning of the year you would not have thought he would having taken those hits and have remained healthy and good enough to beat NE in Foxboro. He has not been a Joe Montana this season but been a leader that hangs in there and given us a chance to win.

    He was the man enough to beat the PATS up in New England in a game that you yourself said that Brady looked totally confused by the Jet's defense.

    Don't just look at TD's and INT. Some interceptions are meaningless, such as the 2 against the Packers, and some are not the QB's fault. Also some TD's result from great plays by the receivers. The key statistic to look at is won/loss. That's how you judge.

    What a wonderful and well informed post. But no matter how hard anyone tries, you cant get the message accross to some of the people on this board.

    According to you, wasn't he not even going to make it as the starter this year (i.e. on the PUP list).

    The chad stuff's getting old.

    The biggest reason as to what makes him a good QB? (not great IMO) His ability to get the Jets out of bad plays and into favorable plays at the LOS. He does that at least 3 to 4 times per game and it has helped the team so much.

    However, altogether Chad Pennington just isn't a great QB. He probably never will be. This arm fatigue excuse he was using in the middle of the season is just crap. It's called, "Start lifting more weights if you want to be stronger".

    I believe we could win a SB with him, he's just going to need a LOT of weapons surrounding him. The Jets have never surrounded Chad with the necessary talent to win a championship. That's why they won't win this year. That's why they probably won't ever win the big game with Chad running the offense.........

    I have seen you post this several times. Please give just one source where Chad or anyone in the organization even came close to saying anything about arm fatigue. I bet you can't.

    The arm fatigue excuse is something that was fabricated by the NY media and messageboard posters such as yourself.

    Correct!!

    do people really think that we would put a quarterback on the field who has arm fatigue?
