Default Should we sign Chad Pennington next year?

Rather than resigning Orton to some Cassel-like contract do you think we should go after Pennington instead? Pennington is a free agent after this season and would come much cheaper coming off of shoulder surgery than Orton would. He probably would only sign a contract for a couple years until we find our next QB.

Personally, I would love to have Pennington and think he would fit in perfectly with this offense.

In before arm strength comment!

As to thread itsself. I dunno, seems like it'd just put us back at square 1, with a vet taking a year to learn the system, and he doesn't have much left in the tank.

Chad Pennington's shoulder x-ray looks like shredded chicken.

Actually it wasn't that bad. I know shoulder injuries to QB's are scary, but I bet you the Saints are happy they gambled on Brees.

Sources: Pennington gets good news

Even though Chad Pennington's season is over for the Miami Dolphins, surgery revealed that his shoulder repair Friday was encouraging enough that he could resume his career in 2010 if he has the desire, according to sources.

Pennington's surgery required only an arthroscopic procedure by Dr. James Andrews on Friday, repairing a torn labrum and minimal damage to the joint capsule as the result of a dislocated right shoulder, sources said.

Dr. Andrews did not discover further damage to the rotator cuff which has twice undergone major repair in the past six years. A third repair of the rotator cuff would have jeopardized Pennington's career.

Pennington could resume light throwing within eight to 12 weeks, a source said. If he does decide to resume his career in 2010, his future with the Dolphins is uncertain because his contract expires after this season.

insane

1560, from L. insanus "mad, insane, outrageous, excessive, extravagant," from in- "not" + sanus (see sane). Originally only of persons; of actions, from 1842. Cf. lunatic; and It. pazzo "insane," originally a euphemism, from L. patiens "suffering."

OK, he's not insane. The idea was.

So would you rather stick with Orton for the next 5 years?

Neither.

We HAD 2 picks in next years draft.

Pennington will be a free agent soon.

Buy a clue.

Well we don't have 2 first round picks now and McDaniels doesn't seem like the type who will take a QB that early in the draft.... And last time I checked both Orton and Pennington are going to be free agents next year. Plus Pennington > Orton.

I think it is pretty logical.

I love the Broncos, not any one player...now having said that. If the Broncos make the playoffs this year with Orton, and he has a pretty good season as well why wouldn't he have earned the chance to be our starter next season as well?

Alot of you guys act like Orton has thrown, I dunno, like 17 INT's already and we're sitting at 4-5 struggling to even break even. We're 6-2 and his TD to INT's ratio is 2-1. So far he's earned the chance to return as our starter.

And he will be in the same offensive system again with a stronger grasp of it. Now if the Broncos wanted to pursue Pennington as a back-up/mentor then I have no problem with that. Besides with half of you clowns thinking Orton sucks, what makes you think he'll command Matt Cassell money? BTW...Cassel's QB rating is higher than a franchise QB struggling in Chicago.

I don't see anyway that Orton remains our starter next year even if we make the playoffs. Pennington isn't any better. I think simms or Brandstater have a better chance at starting next year.

You don't see any way Orton remains our starter next season?

At his current pace, he's gonna put up the following numbers -

340 of 538 - 63% - 18 TD's - 8 INT's with a 89.0 QB rating and 12 wins 4 losses.

You're telling us that if he comes pretty damn close to those kind of numbers and we make the playoffs, he has no chance of being our starter next season? Is you crazy?

I think Orton is doing a solid job when he has perfect protection. But if he faces any pressure Orton is a below average QB. Orton doesn't make plays on his own...

If we go FA path rather then the draft then it better to go for Kellen Clemens, at least he still young and has ability to drive the ball down the field. And as Sanchez, O'Connell and Ainge have contract for the next 3 years, he looks to be the odd man out.

Neither is signing Orton to a longterm deal.

"Broncos have the ball, first and goal on the 2. Pennington is in the shotgun. Wiegmann snaps the ball. Pennington pumps, then hands the ball to Larry Johnson on a draw play. Johnson bounces it outside. He is headed for the corner. He gets a key block from Terrell Owens. TOUCHDOWN, BRONCOS. This play really confused the defense lined up for the pass, I dont think they ever saw that coming. With 30 seconds to go, Denver takes a 13 point lead in Super Bowl."
