Q)Did Bryce Petty take some positive steps from the New Orleans to the Los Angeles game?
John Morton – Jets offensive coordinator: I think so. I really do. He just missed a couple of throws. You have guys open and you have to hit those guys. You have to do that.
Q)Petty said he didn’t have his feet and eyes in sync at times in the (Los Angeles) game . . .
Morton: Listen, I’m not a quarterback guru, but sometimes you might rush the throw a little bit too much, where you can really take the proper footwork and throw the ball and put it in there. When he does that, he’s pretty good. So, we’ve continued to work on those things.
Q)Have seen Petty pressing at all?
Morton: I don’t see him pressing, I really don’t. Things don’t faze him, he just goes to the next play. That’s what you need to do, you need to be mentally tough, especially at that position.
Q)Have you seen the kind of progress you wanted out of Christian Hackenberg?
Morton: I have in practice, but we don’t know in the game, you know what I mean. But I have, I have seen that.
Q)How important is it to see [Hackenberg] play on Sunday in making a determination on his progress?
Morton: I think it’s a determining factor. That’s up to the head coach if he makes that call. He always gets some reps with the first team and he’s got a couple more this week. So, we’ll see what happens
Q)Does Petty’s inconsistent footwork diminish his accuracy?
Morton: I think that has a little bit to do with it. But you can have the same footwork and then miss the throw too. So, it goes both hand in hand.
