Now that the controversial selection of Christian Hackenberg is complete to the New York Jets, we revisit his appearance with Jon Gruden.

For fans of the New York Jets, it’s like Groundhog’s Day all over again.

It started with the selection of Mark Sanchez. Then came Geno Smith in the second round a few years ago, at which point we wondered what Sanchez’s future was.

Then came Bryce Petty a season ago. We then wondered what that meant for Geno’s future.

Now it’s Christian Hackenberg. What does this mean for Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s future with Gang Green?

Let the controversy begin.


The selection of Hackenberg was met with both giddiness and disappointment. In fact, he might be the most hot-and-cold prospect in the entire draft.

Some feel he’s a straight bust; others believe he’s untapped potential.

Take a look for yourself and have your own opinion after watching the Jets newest young QB yak it up with ESPN’s Jon Gruden (video above).
