Christian Hackenberg is trying to impress in the AAF after flaming out in the NFL, but yesterday wasn’t the day for that to happen. Hackenberg was a painful 10-23 for a scant 87 yards in a 26-0 loss to Birmingham. He was also mic’d up for the live national TV broadcast, and was not a happy man.
Hackenberg was off all day, taking beating and was caught on the live mic letting out a GD and an F bomb. It’s really not his fault if the network wants air an unedited live mic feed on a QB that’s getting steamrolled. You don’t have to be Tony Romo to see this coming.
