â†µThe injury came on a Brett Favre passing play. The Gunslinger hung in the pocket, with Umenyiora trying to turn the edge to get to Favre. Favre didn't complete the pass, but the damage was done. Of course, noodly Chad Pennington would have already dumped off the ball to a safety valve, fearing the rush and unable to get the ball 20 yards down the field. (This logic is infallible.)
â†µSpeaking of Pennington: he'd have preferred I not made that joke. Chad P. used to ignore the mocking of his below-average arm strength. Now, he's fighting back. â†µ
â†µâ‡¥"The perception is that way because I never defended myself -- I just let people talk," he said in a private moment last week. "But it's perception -- it's not reality. You get tired of hearing about it." â†µâ†µApologies, Chad. Just know the Giants really wish you were still offering your frozen ropes in New Jersey. They might still have a D-line.â†µ
