re: Season Long Memphis Express Thread #firemikesingletary
From rotoworld:
quote:

Making his Alliance of American Football debut, Christian Hackenberg completed 10-of-23 passes for 87 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Memphis Express' 26-0, Week 1 loss to the Birmingham Iron.

The former No. 51 overall pick of the Jets just three years ago, Hackenberg spent the 2018 season out of the league before landing in the AAF, where he beat out Zach Mettenberger for the Express starting job. Hackenberg was as bad, if not worse, than what we saw from him in his NFL days. Sheer panic takes over at the mere sight of pressure for Hackenberg, and that was the case on Sunday in a league where defenses are only allowed to send five defenders as pass rushers. Hackenberg tossed up plenty of prayers, all of which went unanswered. "Brandon Silvers" replaced Hackenberg late in the loss. Mettenberger will probably start the next game.

Feb 10 - 9:00 PM



I guess Hackenberg managed to improve his practice habits to have gotten the start (or the league was like "He's young and a "name." Make him the starter so we can see if he will blow up!!!").

I mean, it was just June 17 2017 when this was reported:
quote:

“When Hackenberg misses, he really misses,” Hughes wrote Thursday. “He threw just two interceptions in team drills, but nearly tossed six others. And I’m not talking about a receiver falling down. I’m saying the defender just dropped the ball. Other times, the wideout/running back/tight end was wide open, and Hackenberg sailed it over his head or bounced it to him. That can’t happen. In the three media-open OTAs, Hackenberg hit reporters with passes twice.

Does anyone know what happened to Troy Cook? He's on the official roster online but doesn't appear on the roster on Wikipedia.

Also why should anyone be surprised that a David Lee coordinated offense was unsuccessful? He was horrible in college.

The issue is everything I know about Mike Singletary and Zach Mettenberger tells me Matt is not a Singletary kind of guy. I would bet the kid from Troy gets the nod before Mett. Wish Spurrier had grabbed Mett.

Not sure but even a 75% Mett has to be better than what we rolled out there today.


As a lifelong Express fan I was embarrassed by the showing yesterday.

We need a new offensive coordinator. Also I hear Birmingham pays their players and refs.

I tried to find post game press conference from yesterday. Anyone can hook a brother up?

There's some clips on the Express Twitter account, but not the full thing.

Current Memphis Express starting quarterback Christian Hackenberg had a dismal AAF debut on Sunday, finishing the first half of action with a bleak passer rating of just 1.7 as the team headed to the locker room.

Interesting, found preseason game score against Salt Lake. LINK

Mett went 2-2 for 20 yards and Hackenberg had 1 TD no INTs. Hack scored on the opening drive and hasn't done anything since.

It’s too early in the season for the Express to feel required to sink or swim with Hackenberg. It shouldn’t be a surprise if they give the reps this week to Zach Mettenberger and see what he can do. In fact, it would be a bigger surprise if they don’t go with Mettenberger

I'm convinced Hackenberg has been replaced by a body double who just learned football last week.



People always wonder why I'm so high on Allen Robinson, it's because he singlehandedly got Hackenburg drafted.

re: Season Long Memphis Express Thread #firemikesingletary
The lack of quarterback on this roster infuriates me. You pick fourth in the draft and then apparently cut (I haven’t seen any official news) your first selection? That’s the most Memphis thing ever.
