Collins in the Pro Bowl over Pennington is an absolute joke.
There was no comparison between these 2 in the regular season. Pennington should have been in the top 3...now he is no better than 6th in the AFC?

Another reason to ditch the Pro Bowl.

1. He won the Comeback Player of the Year..what do you want?
his Dolphins played a pathetically weak schedule, allowing Pennington and his team to inflate their numbers....he's a mediocre QB at best...throwing 4 interceptions in the playoffs against the Ravens.

2. There you go again with your dumbass bullshit....
1-15 to 11-5... Now the majority of sports fans, those who know what they are talking about--- would say that was quite an achievement.... but then you have some who know nothing about sports... but pretend they do, and spout shit like you just did.

Why is that? I think it's because they sucked their mommy's titties for the first 10 years of their miserable lives and it's affected their skinny little brains, hence turning them into masters of doofistitry.

5. Miami's weak schedule has been documented on numerous occassions
you never have any response, except to say.."1-15 to 11-5." Try addressing the point, the reason for that so called turnaround....the weak schedule.

As for Pennington, he had the worst game of the season in his only playoff game...what does that say about him as a QB?

8. Tennessee had wins against 4 playoff teams...Miami had 1
the Titans played 5 games against playoff teams...Miami 3.

BTW, I'm not a Titan fan but you brought it up.

9. Titans opponents opponents record 114-125...Dolphins 109-131...both below .500...
keep changing the metric though. Both the Titans and Dolphins had actual strength of schedule in the bottom 7 of the league, .4795 vs .4707. So the SOS argument is debunked. The stats aren't even close, and one of the QB's was runner-up in MVP voting.

4. idiotic. Pennington was runner-up for MVP, had 1000 more yards...
10% better completion percentage, more touchdowns.

7. I'm not sure what is says about a player who has won the Comeback award twice.
Does that mean he was awesome twice, or that he sucked twice? Both? And if the pattern holds does this mean he'll suck again soon? Maybe he can win a third!

10. (Serious answer) In Pennington's case, it means he had shoulder injury issues.
Those issues still cost him a lot in terms of arm strength, which he never had in spades to begin with. He's still the most accurate passer in the history of the NFL, though.
