    in a year when Sage Rosenfels is being shopped for a 2nd round draft pick it would be crazy to try to trade Pennington. There are no free agent replacements available. We could draft a QB but we need veteran insurance if Clemens goes down. We wouldn't want to throw a rookie in during an emergency.

    It gets worse too. This class of QBs in the draft is considered weak and from what they're saying on Sirius NFL radio the QB situation in the 09 draft looks horrible as well. Because of this veteran QBs are going to be valuable.

    It may seem like the argument i'm putting up supports the theory that teams should be trying to acquire pennington, but i wouldn't be surprised if the Jets were telling people Pennington isn't available if a team calls.

    That pretty much sums it up right there.

    The Jets only have shopped Vilma and DRob, Pennington isn't being shopped.

    Because Pennyboy is not our starting QB.

    If we were shopping our staring QB, we'd be shopping Clemens.

    Yup. And that's even more depressing than SAR's original post.

    I don't hear teams talking about Peyton Manning. No one wants him?
    It's a little different when common belief is they're available. The Giants are getting calls about Jeremy Shockey despite not being 'On the Block' and with Pennington it's a deafening Silence. The interest just isn't there.

    I don't think any of us can say that definitively.

    Who knows what's going on behind closed doors.

    Personally, I think if we do try to move Chad, I think it will be a draft day trade of some kind.

    It stands to reason that Chad has been shopped too, seeing that he's the same type of three-week-old milk as the other scrubs you mention.

    Chad throws the prettiest balloons in the NFL; surely some traveling halftime circus would want him to compete for the starring role with Sparky The Frisbee® Dog.

    Name a reasonable veteran replacement for Pennington that's available on the free agent market right now. It doesn't make sense to trade Pennington right now in my opinion.

    This is the Million dollar question. Are they ? Im over all the debate. I cant make up my mind regarding this QB situation. Therefore, I hope the big boys in the F.O. make the right decision for us all!

    Sparky The Frisbee® Dog, and we can get him for cheap.

    Yeah. Especially with all the goodness that they have been doing this week, it will be when I lose all confidence in my CS.

    Kelly Holcomb is a free agent and is available.

    He would be a great back-up in my opinion and he wouldn't be whining about how he feels he should be a starter in this league.

    Funny thing is, I think he's a better QB than Chad right now.

    Oh....and i forgot.....
    To each their own, but i've heard a few posters here say that if Pennington gets the nod they'll NOT be a Jets fan this year! This attitude sickens me.
    Pennington OR Clemens, lets support this team and make it an exciting year !

    Never forget....

    This is the front office that tried to cut Chad outright in their first offseason.

    This is the front office that humiliated Chad into taking a paycut.

    This is the front office that refused to name Chad their starter with no capable backup on the roster.

    This is the front office that used a very high second rounder to pick a quarterback to replace Chad.

    This is the front office that never expected a 10-win year out of Chad to ruin their master plan.

    If they want Chad gone, he'll be gone. Anyone calls, it's not "tampering". It's Christmas.

    Ah, no. If Chad starts this season, it's Jim Jones time. We all go out together.

    If Chad was being shopped it would be out. I think they weren't impressed by Clemens and want to make another run with Chad or draft either Ryan or Flacco and let them sit behind Chad next year? If they really believe in Clemens Chad has to be gone by TC.

    Holcomb is so aggressively mediocre...but he won't be making $7 million, and like you said, he won't be demanding to start. He's perfect.

    Now if only we could get someone to take Chad off our hands.
