Penn Lands In Elite Company

October 31st, 2013

Joe’s celebration of Donald Penn’s upcoming 100th consecutive start on Sunday continues.

How big of an accomplishment is Penn’s mark? The streak ranks Penn 10th on the list of active players, and nobody else in the NFL can achieve the milestone this season. It’s an impressive group.

So how many Hall of Famers are in that bunch? At least five. Fletcher, Manning, Gonzalez, Witten and Allen are sure to get in the Hall eventually.

Penn is the lone man to not play during his rookie season. So the story goes, Penn was a target of then Bucs pro personnel director Mark Dominik. Penn was signed to the Bucs roster off the Vikings practice squad on Oct. 4, 2006.

    None of the player’s you listed except Gonzalez are sure bets for the hall of fame.

    Love that picture.
    Suck it Jared!

  3. Harry Says:

    Yeah, great pic. Great accomplishment. Very cool. And another Dominik find for all you haters out there…

    Facemask!!!

    Jared lost his helmet…was that a fight?

  5. MadMax Says:

    How well do you guys think Penn would play at RT?

  6. Eric Says:

    Chucky and Bruce get no love for the signing? And inserting him in the lineup? Only the Dom?

    But that’s typical, no love given for the fleecing of Parcels for Joey Galloway either.

    Can you imagine the crowing if the rock had pulled that off?

  7. []_[]Buc Says:

    Yes BB

    That was last years fight between the two.

    Ex -Scout/Pro Scout/OL/OC Bill Muir, gets no Luv for coaching the kid up either. Great accomplishment.

    With that said, his play has digressed to a point-where he is no longer an asset. See yah Later bye!

    IMHO-If we can’t land Teddy Bridgewater-

    (2014) Taylor Lewan should be the pick

    (2015) “Famous Jamies”

  9. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Right after that, crazy how Jared blow up Penn, and sacked Josh

    What kind of person names there son D’Brickashaw.

  11. Richmondtxbucsfan Says:

    @ LUVMYBUCS
    LOL, oh yeah I forgot about that. I’m sure that was freeman’s fault.

  12. []_[]Buc Says:

    Yes but Penn held him in check almost the entire game.
