No debate.  It's Pennington by a mile. The Penningtolists vs. the ACM (Anti-Chad Militia)?  It was like Israelis vs. Palestinians.  Nobody ever budged.

Mark Sanchez is the second-best quarterback in Jets history, on this we all agree.

I was not on any football message boards during the Pennington era. What was the breakdown of supporters vs dissenters? 

Noodle arm egg versus cerebral all-time completion % leader.

Pennington 

Proud member of the noodle egg hating brigade 

still remember screaming in joy when he threw a pick 6 knowing that it would lead to his benching. What is against the bengals? That part I don’t remember

Not being in any particular forum back then, I assumed Pennington was universally liked. 

Seeing the reactions to him now, I have to think back then must've been brutal.

Pennington.

Just look at the numbers for the rest of the guys, the fact that they sucked was pretty clear cut and dry after a while.

Pennington had the crazy completion numbers, and at times was fantastic. However he was mostly a game manager with a weaker arm who got close to big success multiple times but never really got there. I think of him in a similar vein to Alex Smith.

With him there was an actual debate to be had about sucking or not, and the fanbase raged on and on.

I remember assuming he was popular among our fans when I signed up. I loved the guy.

It was a rude awakening.

@Barton vs @ECURB was serious craic.

The first game to which I took my son was the playoff game when we beat the Colts, with Peyton Manning, 41-0.   Mike Greenberg, whom I really like, was arguing with Golic that Chad was better than Manning.  The next week we played the Raiders.  After that game, I told my son,  “We will never win the Super Bowl with Chad.”   The Raiders played press coverage, and Chad simply did not have the arm strength to complete a pass outside the numbers.  I loved Chad as a person, but...

WHY DO THIS!!!

lol

For jgb's next thread....  How many Super Bowls would the Jets have won if they just stayed put and took Dan Marino who eventually retired so that Tom Brady could take over as Jets QB for him?  (Assume they only played for a combined 30 years)

- 8 Super Bowls

- 12 Super Bowls

- 15 Super Bowls

- 20 or more Super Bowls

Pennington by a mile.

There were people on both sides very firmly entrenched in their belief -- with justification on both sides.

Most Jets fans knew Sanchez sucked, he was just associated with a great era of Jets football so we got a lot of "he's clutch" nonsense.

Darnold was mainly about belief based on hype -- and when he cratered most people left the bandwagon (although I will admit it's pretty surprising how many Jets fans are still attached to the guy.)

And to think we have many more years ahead of dissecting every throw he ever makes in mop up duty on another team.

1. Pennington (by a lot)

2. Sanchez

3. Darnold

4. Fitz

5. Geno

This is the correct answer, in full.  Votes for Darnold are recency bias.

The supposed Sanchez "postseason greatness" fairytale did always have it's own hint of Penningtology to it, but yeah, the order of this list is the only part of any Jets QB talk that really goes beyond debate.

ACM v. Penningtologists. A divisive era. Some Penningtologists were even cheering against Favre and the Jets in ‘08.

They then ignored the Dolphins’ resorting to the Wildcat to cover up for his deteriorating arm strength
