    If he is around in the 2nd round Houston jumps all over him. The Brian Hoyer experiment is over. it's time for the PSU alum to get back together.

    It all depends on the crop of QBs coming out. If there are some studs coming out, he wouldn't get a mention. As is is, there aren't that many good ones coming out so of course people are talking about him. If O'Brien can't develop him, he'll quickly become a back-up somewhere.

    "Hackenberg to Hopkins" will become a household statement.

    Hackenberg was getting praise since he got out of high school. He has the size and arm strength many teams are looking for, though the problem he had at Penn State was his offensive line. He took more sacks in the past 2 years than anyone in college football I believe.

    The more I see Mahomes from Texas Tech...the more I like him! He can do a lot of the same things Russell Wilson does but he's like 6'2 225! His dad was a pitcher for the Twins so being a professional athlete wouldn't be a shock to his system either. Hackenburg sucks....bust!!

    Prepare yourselves, because this is some Grade A, vintage, won’t-find-this-kind-of-ineptitude-on-just-any-team Jets stuff:

    When Hackenberg misses… he really misses. He threw just two interceptions in team drills, but nearly tossed six others. And I’m not talking about a receiver falling down. I’m saying the defender just dropped the ball.

    Other times, the wideout/running back/tight end was wide open, and Hackenberg sailed it over his head or bounced it to him. That can’t happen. In the three media-open OTAs, Hackenberg hit reporters with passes twice.

    The good news for the Jets is it's a pretty strong '18 QB class.

    Regardless of what head coach Todd Bowles says, the Jets‘ QB battle is not an open competition, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post. Costello writes that Josh McCown has taken about 99% of the first-team reps in training camp, while Christian Hackenberg has worked almost exclusively with the second unit. Unless Hackenberg excels during New York’s first two preseason games, Costello expects McCown to be under center come Week 1, which is what we expected all along.

    I thought he would be a good NFL qb. They are saying he can't throw the ball in the ocean. That's lacking some accuracy! LOL Might be wrong about him. Not the first time.

    The Jets play the Giants in their third preseason game of the summer next Saturday and that will be the final chance for the team’s quarterbacks to make their case for the starting job.

    Coach Todd Bowles said that he will make his decision next Monday about which player will be in the lineup when the Jets travel to Buffalo to kick off the 2017 season.

    Bowles didn’t give any hints about who will get the nod, but the safe bet is that Josh McCown will get the nod. While Christian Hackenberg didn’t get much help from his teammates while making a start against the Lions over the weekend, he also didn’t do much to suggest that he’s ready to step into the starting role at the beginning of his second season. McCown did not play in that game, but led the Jets to a touchdown on his only drive of the preseason opener.

    Given Hackenberg’s status as a second-round pick and the likelihood that the Jets are going to struggle to win games, it’s also a safe bet that he’ll get chances to start at some point over the course of the season even if it is just to confirm that the Jets have to do whatever they can to find a long-term solution at the position come the offseason.
