The questions have begun to get serious about whether or not Chad Pennington should remain the starter should the Dolphins once again find a way to monumentally collapse against the Chargers this week, and fall into an 0-3 shit hole. Of course the Dolphins front office won't say anything. So we have to rely on blogs and talk radio at this point. BUT it does become a legitimate question. Not to be all defeatist or anything, but the Fins do face off against Antonio Gates this week, and Gibril Wilson is apparently still in the starting lineup, which means Gates will finish the day with 5,376 yards and 122 touchdowns or something close to that.
Of course, this is all conjecture. Pennington remains the starter. And if the Fins manage to pull a win out of their asses in San Diego on Sunday, then all this would be moot. Until we face yet another win-or-fuck-my-life scenario.
One thing we do know, is that Pennington remains the starter and deservedly so. But should the Dolphins make a change, Henne says he's more than ready. In fact, he's antsy. And in this post, Chargers QB Phillip Rivers shares how he knows all to well the pains of waiting to be the man while he sat and learned from Drew Brees for two seasons -- similar to where Henne finds himself now:
"You have the crowd there, the game's on the line, you want to be in those situations, so of course you're antsy," (Henne) said. "I can't say there's a limit, but every quarterback on the sidelines is antsy."
I'd also like to add that none of this would matter if Nick Saban didn't have what they call in the medical field "shit for brains" and signed Brees instead of Daunte Culpepper back in 2006. Or if Dave Wannstedt wasn't what they call in the medical field "a dick eating shithead" and drafted Brees back in 2001.
So what say you, Nation? Should the Dolphins unleash The Robot unto the world if the Fins go down in San Diego this Sunday?
