Lol. Is this supposed to be good news or encouraging in any way? This is the most reluctant coaching decision in NFL history. The only reason why Josh McCown is starting for the Jets is that Christian Hackenberg has no idea what ‘football’ is.
This does not in any way affect my prediction that the Jets will be going 0-16 this season. If anything, this reinforces my claim. At least if they started Hackenberg from day one, he could improve by week 16. Throwing him to the wolves midseason is going to be hilarious. Thank you, Todd Bowles.
Also, quick shout out to Bryce Petty for managing to stay on this roster for so long and never once be considered to be the starting QB. How bad must Petty be that Hackenberg is ahead in the depth chart?
The New York Jets 0-16 is on the way. Stay tuned.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think the Jets are going to win zero games this season. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
