Yes, this may actually be a possibility and is not as far fetched as it seems it on the surface. Pennington ranks sixth in passer rating in the NFL, and three of the guys ahead of him (Rivers, Romo, and Brees) are likely leading teams that will miss the playoffs (with the Dolphins right in the thick of it in the AFC). Should the Dolphins get into the playoffs or even win the AFC East, Pennington would have a really compelling case. For all of the talk Matt Ryan has gotten as a potential MVP candidate (by a certain sports network and their concussed former running back), Pennington's cast of characters (Ronnie Brown one year removed from reconstructive knee surgery, Ricky Williams in his tenth re-incarnation, and a receiving core of Ted Ginn and Greg Camarillo) pales in comparison to Ryan's (a top running back in Michael Turner and the NFL's leader in receiving yards in Roddy White). As of now, Pennington probably ranks a distant third on my proverbial ballot behind Kurt Warner and the real Adrian Peterson. However, if the Dolphins make the playoffs and say the Vikings choke again and the Cards limp to the finish, Pennington deserves real consideration for an honor guys that were cut in training camp rarely receive.
