    CINCINNATI - The Jets lost another game and Chad Pennington lost his biggest supporter yesterday, a staggering blow to his reign as the starting quarterback.

    For the first time since his job security became an issue three weeks ago, Pennington didn't receive a public vote of confidence last night from a seething Eric Mangini, who put the entire team on notice after a ghastly 38-31 loss to the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.

    Instead of declaring, "Chad is the starting quarterback," as he has done so many times, Mangini resorted to the time-tested, kiss-of-death: "I'll have to watch the tape."

    Pennington has a weak *** arm and he cant go deep and floats sideline throws. He should get benched since they are 1-6. Too bad the trade deadline passed already.

    When he watches the tape he will bench his defense.

    He'd be good in a west coast offense that doesn't require deep balls

    Bout time they go to Clemens but he better not suck :icon_tease:

    Pennington cant stretch the field at all. He is limited and will most likely be a backup from now on after he is cut from the Jets after this season.

    Volek is a FA after this season so why would they give us anything? The trade deadline was over the day after we got Chambers.

    Pennington will be cut after this season because his contract is big and they have Kellen Clemens waiting to take over. He may get his shot soon this year.
