Posted 6 Jan 2017Jets source: Hackenberg will 'never make it'
The mystery around quarterback Christian Hackenberg isn't really a mystery at all. There are two factions on One Jets Drive. One believes that it will take a long time for the second-round pick to develop into a possible contributor. The second more damning faction believes that Hackenberg won't ever be the solution, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
One Jets starter simply rolled his eyes and shook his head recently when asked whether Hackenberg was worth a second-round pick. "No," the player said.
"He will never make it," another Jets source said. "Never."
That's a harsh and unfair assessment for a player who’s only been a professional for eight months, but opinions about Hackenberg in the building are strong … and similar. An ESPN report last week cited a team source claiming that the rookie couldn't throw the ball into the ocean.
"I guess it depends which ocean," Woody Johnson cracked on Thursday. "Maybe it was a small ocean. The EPA describes that as an ocean. … Anyway, no, that's not funny."
Did Woody really say that part, "Maybe it was a small ocean. The EPA describes that as an ocean. … Anyway, no, that's not funny"??? SMH, anyway.
Hell, anybody who has watched a PSU game between 2013 to 2015 could tell you Hackenberg was an awful QB. I never saw what the appeal was with Hackenberg from all the "experts" and then of course my favorite team had to draft him (when Connor Cook was still available). Then we were told Chan Gailey would coach him up into a NFL starter. Now Gailey is gone. They better draft a QB in this year's draft.
