Jets QB Christian Hackenberg Kicked Out of Practice For Not Knowing How To Break A Huddle Correctly
This may be the most embarrassing thing someone has done in a Jets uniform since Mark Sanchez’s infamous butt fumble.
The New York Jets aren’t expected to contend for anything this year, except a top-3 draft pick in next year’s NFL draft, but they need to at least make it seem like they want to be competitive and know what they are doing.
The team currently has one of the sorriest lineups of quarterbacks ever assembled. Christian Hackenberg displayed that on Monday when he got himself kicked out of practice by the coaching staff because he couldn’t figure out how to break a huddle correctly. Seriously.

At this point, no one would blame a single Jets fan if they refused to show up to any games this year. We understand.
OH, and let’s just quickly check in on the twitter trolls…
“That kind of resilience”
Such grit to be able to get emasculated by coach, then go out and do the most basic possible thing correctly.

“On the third try he did it right, and at that moment he became presidenti….a quarterback”

How is it even possible to NOT break a huddle correctly? Especially if people have done it hundreds (or thousands?) of times by that point?

I can think of a free agent quarterback that knows how to break a huddle

To be fair, for it to be truly Jets, this story would’ve had to end with Hackenberg getting picked off.

….they got a guy who doesn’t even know the basics of being a QB?
I’m in awe tbh

ah cutler vs hackenberg. truly a matchup for the ages.

I heard the Jets insurance premiums will rise significantly if they allow Hackenberg to cut his own steak at the training table.

“If he wants to be the Jets’ long-term quarterback answer” Who would want that?

Huddle resilience>Eye discipline>Arm talent

I read that last sentence as “the Jets’ wrong-term quarterback answer.”

“Resilience” = minimal level of competence expected of every QB in the league.

Legit can’t wait to see the Hack take the field. We haven’t seen a QB this potentially bad since Chad Hutchinson.
— Ken Raining (@deliasdad) August 7, 2017
As a Cowboys fan, I look back weirdly on the period of time where we had to decide between Chad Hutchinson and Drew Henson.

If this guy likes resiliency he should watch my team fix the printer.
— Taylor Is Good (@TaylorIsGood87) August 7, 2017
Ahhh yes, the resilience of doing something he should know how to do since childhood and then having the guts to complete a pass
