    We watched him for years, when he got to Detroit we learned that his mechanics were crap so Martz tore his arm apart and tried to rebuild it. Now we all know that Orlovsky is killing him in the quest for #2.

    I think it's certainly safe to say Pennington is better than that.

    Not to mention Stanton was drafted to be Martz's QB anyhow. He was a QB with an arm that threw more ducks than spirals but made some good decisions when the pocket fell apart, put himself out there physically (a la Elway and Steve Young with his feet ONLY) and had quickness that made his speed seem better than it was.

    Like I said, I prefer Pennington over that. Not sure what happened to Pennington, but he has at least had success in the NFL. Remember 2002? QB rating over 100, 20+ TD, 3,000+ yards, only 5-6 picks, close to 70% completion rate. Yep, I think it's safe to say that even though we haven't seen Stanton in the NFL, he doesn't have that as part of his professional history.
    In fact, in any season where Pennington has played 4 or more games he has completed at least 63% of his passes and thrown more TD's than INT's. But adding him would be horrible.
    We had subs. It was crazy.

    Gotta think that Pennington is too smart (Rhodes Scholar finalist) to come here, especially to back up Kitna.


    He lost out on the award to someone named "Thiberius Q. Bukdow".
    Find a new slant.

    Stanton would definitely improve the Lions' return game though.
    ,, wow !!

    How to sum up the woeful shit sandwich that is being a Lions fan: We actually talk about Pennington backing up Kitna as something positive and with a straight face.

    Pennington had something the Lions don't the year he put up those numbers. A great offensive line and running game. That was with Curtis Martin still running like a potential pro bowler.
