Can he steal away the starting job from TJax hands ?

Then, do you think that Pennington may become a Fantasy sleeper ?

RB- A Foster, A Morris, McGahee, Jackson, B Wells, P Thomas, J Rodgers
WR- Cobb, R White, Austin, D Baldwin (Sea)
TE- Witten, Bennett
K- Tucker
DEF- SF Ind

Absolutely. we are a run first team, easily. Our backs can catch out of the backfield for Penny. Penny's high percentage passing would be a great fit. Penny doesn't have the arm to let Berrian and Rice stretch the field though, which worries me. With AD, Penny will be passing to recievers in 1 on 1 coverage and should have open guys quite often. That being said, I haven't paid much attention to Penny in the last few years... How much better is he than our guys? Frerotte looked better than TJax yesterday. Heck, I'd like to see Booty get more reps.

Then, we may have a very interesting situation here : who will be the starting QB for the Vikings ?
I think it may become the key to all Super Bowl hopes for that team.
Minnesota : huge running game, great DEF but too many question marks for the starting QB.

Great move by my Jets to get Favre. Instant upgrade from Pennington and Clemens.

Like everyone said Coles and Cotchery value definetly jumps up with his addition. Bubba Franks will be big again down in the red zone. As far as T.Jones goes, defenses will not be up in the box like they were when Pennington was the QB because now there is a legitimate threat to get the ball down the field. T.Jones should be in for a very good season because of that and the major improvements they made to their O-line this off season.

I know people are mentioning that Pennington will land in Minny but I would not be shocvked to see him in KC once he is released. He an Herm Edwards are real close from their days when Herm was the HC in NY.

A concern now will be how soon the new O-line can come together. Having ironman Favre will help, but if they get off to a slow start his Brettness could toss a lot of INTs. On the plus side the Jets have two tough game in wk 2 &3 vs Pats and at the Bolts, but the early sched after than could favor a smooth transition. Look for Cotchery to take a big bump up, I could see him as a Jennings to Coles Driver.

Chilly will not back down from starting TJack. His ball and chain is firmly attached. :-° I'm not in favor of Penny either, let someone else take him as their back up. Ferret will be our Backup, Booty will be the 3rd stringer. Brooks will be cut.

Agreed. They've hitched their wagon to Jackson, for better or worse, and will live and die with him. I don't think Penny is a good fit anyway and would rather roll with the Jackson/Frerotte/Booty.

Truely one of the great mysteries. Why would any coach hitch his wagon up to a sub-par QB? I guess it just shows how much ego can blind a coach.

I believe Cotch is going to take over Drivers role, and Coles will take over Jennings role, but at the same time, I think we should temper expectations...These guys get a boost, but I'm not expecting a huge fantasy increase...I think Favre has the WR's to make some plays happen, so it will be interesting to watch...I picked him up in a few leagues so I'm really hoping it works out and he has a year similiar to last years.
