Chad Pennington clearly has an experience edge over Tyler Thigpen and Pat White. But the coaches, and possibly Pennington's surgically repaired throwing shoulder, won't even let him enter this position battle. According to coach Tony Sparano, this contest is between his two young arms. Thigpen, who started in Kansas City, has an experience edge over White. He also has a tendency to make things happen through improvisation. White, who struggled with his accuracy last season, has shown some improvement during the offseason. But will it carry over into camp and the exhibition season? White's bigger and stronger this season, but still has a ways to go before he proves he's an NFL quarterback.

So we have two quarterbacks on the roster, one gimmick and one noodle arm. One of these things seems like a waste of a roster spot.

Later Pat. They will keep Penny on the roster for the above reason. It will kill him to ride pine, but he'll get to suit up and be the 911 guy.

Penny will be on the PUP list for the first few games, giving Pat White the ability to dress as the defacto Number 2. Should something happen to Chad Henne, Thigpen will be activates as the #3, and the White package will be shelved for the game at hand. Penny will prob be in street clothes until he needs to be activated..... week 6 I believe, and at that point Thigpen will be traded if White can handle the role of backup QB (this is a big IF) or White will change position or be deactivated by being the #4, probably not cut though
