  • Should...

    ...teams wait until their franchise quarterback is retired before they draft a future franchise quarterback? Look at the Packers for example. They drafted Aaron Rodgers and now it appears he'll sit on the bench for 3 years.

    no you should train the next guy so he is ready to step in when the franchise qb retires

      There is no cookie cutter way of doing it. Each situation is unique. You may not think so, but Rodgers has been learning plenty during the last few years. A lot of QB's fail when thrown straight into the fire, while others can handle it. But all of them need a few years to mature and realize their full potential.

        Yep. Brett Favre is definitely the exception to the rule, it's a big step backwards if you have to rely on a rookie QB to start a season.

          I like what the Jets did. Kellen Clemens has been learning the system and learning some things for Pennington. It would have been bad if he started right away. I'd say Kellen will be ready in 2009.

            A QB of the future should always be on the team. A QBOTF isn't always a first round pick, it just needs to be a development guy that can grow into a starting QB.

            That is correct comahan

              How people forget that Chad Pennington didn't start a game until his 3rd season. He was a 1st rounder also.

              Plus Green Bay probably thought Brett Favre would have been retired by now when they selected Rogers.

                And Chad never started a full season until last season. So whats the point. Its not like Chad is Tom Brady or Peyton Manning to prove this guys point wrong.

                  The point is Chad Pennington was in the same situtation as Rogers. Neither started a game in their first two years in the league as 1st round draft picks. Sometimes you have to wait for a 1st round QB to get a chance to play. You don't start all over by drafting someone else and start the process over again. Especially where Green Bay sits and can't get a blue chip rookie QB.

                  And Chad Pennington is a top 10 NFL QB when healthy. He is one of the most accurate passers around. And may I say he had a better year than Eli last year despite no talent RB, two rookie OLman, a twice surgically repaired arm. and on a less talented team than the Giants. The Jets alway do better with Pennington than without him.

                  And Pennington started every game he was 1st string in 2002.

                    The fact that he had a better year than Eli has nothing to do with it. Although that is at least debatable. The bottom line is that Pennington is in the minority in this day of age when it comes to QBs. When you are a first round pick most likely you will be on the field by year 2.

                      I like Pennington and root for him. But only an assclown would say that he had a better year than Eli. Wake up dumbass.

                        I hope the Jets braintrust continues to think along those lines as well. As long Hanging Chad is your man the Patriots will have nothing to worry about when the games turn to "win or go home".

                          There is exceptions to the rule. Rogers got stuck behind Favre. The Jets thought they could win with Vinnie.

                            When Chad Pennington is healthy he's a top 15 guy at best. When he's injured the Jets turn into a crap shoot they have another 4-12 season. They were smart and invested for the future when Pennington does go down they won't be in that situation again.

                              Let's see here. Pennington had a better QB rating, led a less talented team to the playoffs in a better conference.

                              You are a dumbass if you think the Jets even had a chance at the playoffs in the beginning of last season. Or the Jets had a more talented team than the Giants.
