Jets' Pennington "camping" in Knoxville

Chad Pennington looks forward to Camp Webb every summer. It's the football camp Chad holds with his father and several former coaches at the Webb school campus.

"The thing I most enjoy about working with camps and high school kids," said Chad, "(the) football's pure. There are no hidden agendas."

Pennington found out about hidden agendas last season, becoming frustrated with the negative comments of the New York media.

"Sometimes as a player," Pennington said, "you just get fed up with (negativity)."

Chad says he doesn't regret his confrontation with some of the media members, because he feels it showed how passionate he is about the team.

Pennington suffered a broken hand in the preseason in August, 2003, and missed most of that year. He tore a rotator cuff in his shoulder last fall and missed some time, so staying on the field is his focus this time around.

"As a player, you can't worry about injuries," said Chad. "I've had two injuries that have been things that just had to take some time to heal before I could come back and play, and play effectively."

"My goal this year is just to stay healthy, injury-free if at all possible so I can help my team win."

The Jets made the playoffs in 2004, defeating San Diego in a wild card game before losing to eventual Super Bowl champion New England.

Chad will have two familiar faces with him in camp this July. Laveranues Coles is back with New York after a season with the Washington Redskins.

And former Tennessee running back Cedric Houston will be in camp after being chosen in the third round by the Jets.

"I've watched Cedric a bunch of different times," Chad said. "I know our coaches are really excited about his potential and what he can do."

"Obviously, Curtis Martin only has a few years left. He's going to play as long as he can, but sooner or later age will get him, and we'll need some young guy to come in."

"It's a perfect situation for guys like Cedric to come in, show what they can do."

I remember that game. We had the ball at the 4 yard line going in, score tied at 54, an amazing day for both QB's, Curtis was averaging over 8 YPC, and Chad Pennington had thrown 5 TD's, two to a receiver I won't name here because he wouldn't tell me whether he wore briefs, boxers or went commando...
