Lost in all the nuttyness of the BRETT FAVRE IS A JET!!! thing were the thoughts roaming in the back of my head at the time. Mainly, that Chad Pennington was going to somehow end up having a better season than The Ultimate Diva. And boobies. Always boobies on my mind. Big ones, little ones, bouncy ones..... mmmmmm..... boobies.....
Even though I had serious doubts about signing Pennington -- thanks to a scarred psyche brought on by the likes of Jay Fiedler, AJ Feeley, Joey Harrington, Daunte Culpepper, Brian Griese.... you know the list -- I also felt that if he could stay healthy, he would be solid enough and be the guy to lead our team. At least until The Robot was fully charged and ready to take over the job (and then melting us all with his heat ray).
Well, so far, it's official: Chad Pennington has been very good, while Favre has been very mediocre. Pennington has had his flaws but, overall, he's been a spark. Meanwhile, Favre almost lost to the fucking Chiefs and was booed by Jets fans on Sunday.
Our man Salguero weighs in on the matter:
Salguero then asks his readers to choose between Chad and Brett if they had to pick one to start right now for a championship game. He also asks them to be fair and balanced by sighting Fox News.
Pennington's completion percentage (69.3) is higher than Favre's (68.5). Pennington has thrown for more yards (1,710) than Favre (1,611) despite having 33 fewer attempts.
Pennington has more completions of 20-yards or more (20) than Favre (17) and more passes of 40-yards or more (5) than Favre (4).
Favre does have more TD passes (15) than Pennington (7). But he also has thrown more interceptions (11) than Pennington (3). Pennington's rating for the season is 100.5 while Favre's rating is 89.5.
So to recap, Armando Salguero started to write a pretty good blog post about Chad Pennington and then it turned into a midget-sized turd, as usual.
Also, Pennington is better than Favre. So Favre can suck it.
(Don't forget to vote for Chad)
