One of many reasons it’s a bad idea to start Hackenberg Dan Leberfeld

Many people are pushing the Jets to start Christian Hackenberg in Week 17 against Buffalo.

One thing I don’t get.

Hackenberg’s last two years at Penn State he took an awful beating playing behind a bad offensive line. It took its toll on him, mentally and physically. It’s one reason his mechanics got messed up, and the Jets are attempting to fix that.

So why would you want to throw the rookie out there against Buffalo, behind a Jets line with four starters out?

How does that make any sense?

Can somebody please explain this to me?
