The Alliance of American Football may have enjoyed a coagulated introduction over the weekend, but it didn’t go so well for Christian Hackenberg. The former Penn State star and second-round pick of the New York Jets, who never played a daily time period down in two-plus NFL time periods, struggled as his Memphis Express was shut out Sunday in its opener.
Hackenberg accomplished just 10 of 23 passes for 87 yards and an interception, plus he was despoiled doubly and flagged for deliberate grounding, in Memphis’s 26-0 loss to the Birmingham Iron. With astir four minutes left, he was upraised from the game in favour of backup quarterback Brandon Silvers, but not earlier Hackenberg left as big an feeling with his potty oral cavity as he did with his patched arm (warning: profanity)
