It is just like the Jets to never realize players potential. Watch Hack come back and  be a productive QB with some real coaching...Mac and Bowles had no clue.

The last drafted Jets player to have struggles here and then go on to any noteworthy impact on another team was probably Jonathan Vilma.  The core issues for the Jets over the last decade have been an inability to bring IN NFL-caliber players, not their failure to develop hidden gems. 

This wasn't the coaching staff's failure to develop a QB with known, significant accuracy problems.  Problems at the level Hackenberg had never get fixed at the pro level.  If you can't complete 60 % of your throws against Indiana, you're not gonna do it against even the worst NFL defenses. 

Its easy and fair to be critical of everything the Jets do.  They hire bad GM's and bad HC's.  But in this case, the blame for Christian Hackenberg falls squarely on Mike Maccagnan.

Others with no clue... Chan Gailey, Jeremy Bates, John Morton, Jon Gruden, Bill Lazor, Alex Van Pelt, Doug Pederson, Mike Groh, Greg Olson, etc.

What is this the third or fourth time we've heard Hack's been fixed?  Look it's not Hack's fault he was over drafted and never lived up to expectations that falls on the Jets and he is right he's only 23 so if he can show anything in this new league I wouldn't be surprised to see him get another shot to at least be a backup somewhere in the NFL next year.

I agree with the Bowles part, but Suckenberg really was that bad

Did they also fix his inability to read defenses, avoid the rush, identify an open receiver, and get rid of the ball before being crushed by the rush, while he shuffles his feet and eats the ball?  I doubt it.  You as a Dr. should recognize when the patient is too far gone to be resuscitated, this patient is D.O.A.

I will try to check it out. I was just looking over the rules and saw this:

  • There will be no kickoffs; halves, odd overtime periods and after scores will begin on each team's own 25-yard line, the same as touchbacks in the NFL and NCAA. In lieu of an onside kick, a team can keep possession of the ball by attempting a scrimmage play from their own 28-yard line and gaining at least 12 yards.[22] (The original proposal for this play had teams making a 10-yard play from the 35-yard line.)[21][2]

I don't understand the hatred for this kid. He didn't chose to be drafted where he was drafted or by us. He didn't decide he wanted to be on our team where his best coaches weren't capable of coaching peewee football. The kid never played a snap for us. It's not like he came in and threw a ton of interceptions and cost us games...he tried to make the team and wasn't good so we cut ties why blame him?
