Hanging Chad: Jets Aiming to Beat Up Another Dolphins QB
Flickr user: lb_ice_dogs_fans
Are you ready for some football? Well, Chad Pennington isn't. He was supposed to provide the Monday Night Football storyline. He was to avenge his being dumped by the Jets before the 2008 season. Instead, Pennington got injured, so now announcers are going to have to talk about another QB Chad -- Henne, who probably isn't very excited about lining up behind an offensive line that let him get sacked six times last week against Buffalo. (Scary thought: The Jets defensive line is much better.)
That porous blocking and the quarterback shuffle is part of the reason the Fins rank 31st out of 32 teams in passing, with only the Oakland Raiders behind them. So we'll try not get our hopes up, but with all our "rowdy friends" around the screen and with that ESPN theme song kicking in... well... who cares who our QB is. Let's just kick the Jets' teeth in.
