Jets' Christian Hackenberg not playing because 'This isn't Triple-A'

Todd Bowles has some big decisions to make during his team’s bye week Todd Bowles has some big decisions to make during his team’s bye week

When it comes to the quarterback situation of the New York Jets, Josh McCown has overachieved, to say the least. The Jets could still potentially land a top quarterback in the draft in April, but that would also spell the end of Hackenberg's chances of being the guy to lead the huddle in the future.

McCown has proven to get the job done but can't do much of anything when the Jets offensive line is unable to give him time to pass or even open up rushing lanes to get the ground game going.

General Manager Mike Maccagnan has said that he is not anxious about Hackenberg's slow progression, which sounds more like a general manager who is not ready to admit that he missed on a draft pick. "We're going to play the games, and we're going to try to win each one". But he struggled badly and ended up last on the depth chart behind Petty and McCown. Bates said it has to do with the Jets' West Coast offense. "Learning the system and playing fast, being more accurate".

But after that, there's essentially no reason not to play Hackenberg. "So all those things, he's working on".

"They're not just throwing the ball up there", Bates said. They enter the bye week a team that has competed valiantly most weeks, but its most non-competitive game just happened to be the most recent loss - a complete flat-liner to a sinking Tampa Bay squad in Week 10. If you throw an incompletion, you rotate. Do they take a potential franchise quarterback in the first-round, or do they make the decision to ride with Hackenberg for another year despite the Penn State product never having taken a snap in an National Football League game? Bowles said recently he saw enough of his young quarterbacks in the preseason. We're ready to go, to the next day, to the next day, and then to the game day.

"When you watch Josh practice, he goes out there and he's on it, on the protections, 100 percent on the run game, 100 percent (on everything)", Bates said. So just giving him the opportunity with what he represents and how he plays the game and how his focus is, this is what I expect out of Josh and I think he expects the same thing. Bowles most certainly understands this and has been coaching his team hard all season.

"If their number's called, they're going to go in there and they'll have an opportunity to showcase what they're working on", Bates said.

Jets players were scheduled to be at the practice facility on Tuesday, before dispersing for the bye week.

I'm not coming up with a scenario right now.

"We'll do our own work as coaches".

In the second half of the 2017 campaign, the Jets will face some tough challenges against notable teams like the Patriots, New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, and Kansas City Chiefs. "They'll do their due diligence as players to stay healthy and stay out of trouble", Bowles said.
