Cardinals QB Kurt Warner has dominated the MVP discussion for most of the season, but Sun-Sentinel columnist Ethan J. Skolnick believes that Dolphins QB Chad Pennington deserves some consideration. Pennington has long been the forgotten third domino in the Brett Favre–Aaron Rodgers soap opera during the offseason, but he could lead the Dolphins from a 1-15 record in 2007 to the playoffs this season.
- His name hasn’t surfaced often in that conversation, because he has thrown fewer than one touchdown per contest, led a team that few have taken seriously and gotten lost in the overblown Wildcat hype. But that name should surface now. While Pennington doesn’t have a signature moment, other than perhaps his drive for a field goal to beat Oakland, one lurks on the schedule:
- Dec. 28 in the Meadowlands, against the team that dumped him, against the quarterback who replaced him, possibly for the division.
- A win couldn’t get more signature than that. MORE
