Twitter rips Christian Hackenberg's AAF debut

Orlando Apollos rout Atlanta in AAF debut, 40-6

Twitter was happy to take aim at the former second-round National Football League draft pick as he floundered in the AAF.

Hackenberg showed a lot of the things that made him a failure with the New York Jets, making a lot of bad throws and taking sacks.

Saturday's AAF debut, which featured a pair of games on CBS, registered a 2.1 rating, according to Sports Business Journal. But, he never played a game for NY and bounced around the National Football League before ending up in the AAF.

Now he's in the AAF trying to get a second life.

The Memphis Express will be back in action next Saturday.

Unfortunately for him, they have not, it would seem. This was a sample of Hackenberg's rough afternoon against the Birmingham Iron (NSFW language).

Things didn't start out well for Hackenberg in the second half, either, as Memphis head coach Mike Singletary relied nearly exclusively on the run, to the point that they turned the ball over on downs trying to take the ball out of the quarterback's hands.

Hackenberg finished the game 10 of 23 passing for 87 yards and an interception. If the Penn State alum had been selected with a pick more commensurate with his talent-say, a late third-day pick or undrafted free-agent status-the fact that he never threw a regular-season pass for the Jets wouldn't be such a big deal.
