New York Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg reportedly struck a couple members of the media with errant passes during recent organized team activities.
On Thursday, Connor Hughes of NJ Advance Media relayed details of the QB’s performance during the voluntary workouts, including a note on a few way-off throws: “In the three media-open OTAs, Hackenberg hit reporters with passes twice.”
The saga of Christian Hackenberg being unable to throw a football has been my favorite thing ever. No matter what your opinion of Tim Tebow or Johnny Manziel were, at least you knew they had legs and could scramble out of the pocket. Tim Tebow won a playoff game.
The fact that the Jets continue to enter training camp thinking that Hackenberg is the next big thing, only to immediately realize that he has no idea where the ball is going when it leaves his hand is hilarious.
Ah, to be a fly on the wall to see Hackenberg aim at a wide receiver but end up hitting a photographer in the bleachers. He’s literally Uncle Rico trying to throw a football over them mountains.
I cannot wait until Todd Bowles just says ‘fuck it’ and sends Hackenberg out there to get lit up and stuff the turnover box score. Earlier this week I wrote about the possibility of the Jets going 0-16 this season and after hearing that Hackenberg’s missed passes are hitting innocent bystanders, the Jets may never win another football with this guy in uniform.
Every single practice in New York has become must watch now. I’ve never wanted to be called a journalist. I’ve never wanted a press pass but I want/NEED to see how bad Bryce Petty must be.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Christian Hackenberg is the worst quarterback ever. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
