Good news for Penny/Moss/J-Mac owners...

Always a good thing:

Standing on the sideline during the Jets' final preseason game, Chad Pennington organized a play date with his closest friends. Actually, it was a practice date. He invited his receivers to come out for an extra throwing-and-catching session two days later on a deserted field at Weeb Ewbank Hall.
Pennington was joined last Sunday by Justin McCareins, Santana Moss, Wayne Chrebet, Jerricho Cotchery and Anthony Becht. For 90 minutes, they ran routes and he threw to them. Injuries to Moss and Chrebet robbed Pennington of valuable preseason time with his receivers, so he's trying to play catch-up.

"He doesn't force us to be there, but it's contagious," McCareins said yesterday of the impromptu sessions. "He plays for the right reasons. That's why he's as good as he is. That's why he's going to be great."

Pennington is preparing for the first opening day start in his five-year career, and he wants everything to be just right. Right now, the passing game is out of sync. Of the top three wideouts, the only one to catch a ball in the preseason was McCareins (three receptions). Pennington claimed he's not worried, although he admitted, "I don't think anybody expects your team to be ready for the playoffs in the first game of the season."

Hampered by a pulled hamstring, Moss was limited to a cameo appearance in the last game. But he will start Sunday against the Bengals. Chrebet (bruised quadriceps) is listed as probable, but the team remains cautious about his status. He hasn't played a game since last November, when he suffered a serious concussion, and coach Herman Edwards could decide to keep him out another week.

Chrebet seemed optimistic about his chances.

"If I am playing, it would be special," he said. "I've had a long, hard road to get back to where I am now, to be able to play. As I've said, it wasn't a definite that I'd be back (from the concussion)."

Chrebet talked glowingly about the offensive potential, saying, "There's really no weakness on the offensive side of the ball."

Said Pennington: "I think we have a lot of potential, too, but the last time I checked, 'potential' is another word for, 'You haven't done anything yet.'"


Feels good to be a Jets fan B-)

Isn't this the second time you have reported teammates getting close together?

Jumpman I think you have a fetish for closely knit teammates. ;-)

Yea I know but...Woah, I almost walked right into that one.

Hey, the closer they are, the better a connection they'll have on the field...very important between a QB and his receivers.

I got Pennington in the 6th round of my 10 team league and am really excited to have him as my starter. I am hoping for big things this year.
