Anyone else think that the sight of Chad Pennington mentoring football players looks good? I know I do.

Mike Tannenbaum must have agreed, because he invited Chad to come to training camp yesterday. He was there to watch the quarterbacks play, and was seen talking to Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. He then gave the team an inspirational message after practice, telling them not to take any day they work for granted. His message was not to go through the motions.

This move by Tannenbaum wasn’t good, it was excellent. Chad Pennington is perfect for working with the Jets. Whether it’s as a quarterbacks coach, an assistant coach, or whatever, he needs to be on this coaching staff. And Mike needs to do it now.

Now we will talk about why.

ABILITY

Chad’s skill set is exactly what the Jets’ quarterbacks need. What do we get annoyed at Mark Sanchez for? His decision making. I know that my most lingering picture from 2011 of Mark is him throwing INTs to defensive linemen down in Miami.

What about Tim Tebow? He’s a great runner, but his problem is throwing the football. His footwork is terrible, he takes too long to throw the ball, and he isn’t very accurate.

Who holds the record for greatest career completion percentage? Chad Pennington. His career percentage is 66.05%. Whether you liked Chad’s arm strength or not, you cannot argue the fact that Chad would make the right decisions with the football. He can teach these guys how to be better quarterbacks. That alone is a great reason, but there are others.
