New York Jets Preseason: 3 Takeaways vs. Lions

Matthew Stafford no decision on mid-season contract talks

Matthew Stafford no decision on mid-season contract talks

The Detroit Lions took advantage of that last one in their preseason game vs. the Jets on Saturday night. McCown is the presumptive starter for NY this season, yet he's not getting reps, despite Todd Bowles telling the media last week McCown needed them. It hasn't been easy as they had some potential quarterbacks worthy of such praise but ultimately didn't work out in the long run.

Hackenberg was blindsided on the third play from scrimmage and fumbled, but the Jets recovered.

"That was one of those looks", Hackenberg said.

The quarterback situation in NY gets a lot of attention.

The offense struggled to do much of anything with him under center.

Did Detroit really watch a lot of film, though?

"I thought it was a good learning experience", Hackenberg said.

Through two games, NY hasn't scored a point with him at quarterback. Prior to the team's loss to the Lions, the Jets edged the Tennessee Titans by the score of 7-3 to open the preseason back on Saturday, Aug. 12.
