Pennington needs to be benched

Daily News NFL columnist Gary Myers feels Chad Pennington should be benched. On Tuesday, he wrote that angle for the fourth time in two weeks.

"Mangini left Chad hanging yesterday and would not reveal if he's benching Pennington on Sunday against Buffalo," wrote Myers. "But it seems likely, after his top-secret organizational evaluations this week, he will conclude the rest of this lost season must be dedicated to finding out whether Kellen Clemens can play.

"It really is the only way to get the attention of his players, attempt to provide a spark to his struggling team and give anybody in this town a reason to keep watching. The move to Clemens is inevitable. It should also be immediate."
