Will Pennington Give Us An Edge When Playing The Jets?

I was just thinking about it and was wondering what everyone here thought.

Usually, when you aquire and player from a rival, this question comes up but it tends to be a red herring sort of argument.  I mean, you get a LB that comes over and you wonder if he can help us interpret the rival's defensive signals, or the offensive tendency to run certain plays from specific formations.  Or you get a guy that played for a rival team under a different coach.  Or you pick up a player from a team you will play only once that year.  Nothing that is a substantial advantage.

But in this case, we have a QB... the (supposedly) single most knowledgeable guy on the team, who can not only tell you offensive plays, but also will know the defensive formations and tendencies from practicing against them.

And not only a QB, but a guy who has played under the current coach and system, and has been through all of the off season camps THIS YEAR.  And being a couple of weeks into camp, he certainly got a look at this years playbook (which is probably substantially the same as previous years).

So I wonder, do you think the Jets have to make a big effort to change things up when they play the Dolphins this year?  Do you think having Pennington will help us beat the stinkin' Jets?

Man, all I can say is "I Hope So!", because every since we signed him, I have been really conflicted.  I have spent years hating Pennington, and making fun of him, just because he was a Jet and always seemed to find a way to beat the Dolphins.  NOW, I am having to find a way to root for him!  It is going to be painful, but if he can help us beat the stinkin' Jets, he will have my loyal support as a Fin fan!  :)

So what do you think?
