    I mean it's a small sample but he seems really accurate.

    The second-round pick got hot for a stretch with four straight completions on a fourth-quarter touchdown drive but was a non-factor the rest of the night. He threw an ugly interception in his own end zone late in the fourth quarter to set up the Giants' game-winning drive and also took an inexcusable delay of game penalty. It was an uninspiring effort from Hackenberg, who is destined to spend his rookie year glued to the Jets' bench.

    Looking at the box score, he was 6-16 with 1 TD 1 INT. Those highlights are good throws, but that's a poor stat line. The interception was also thrown straight at a lineman that dropped into coverage.

    Love how he moves around in pocket

    Huge difference w/ Brock already looking one way with a pre-determined target VS. Hackenberg scanning the field and making a calculated throw

    Hope Brock has that kind of time to throw.

    4th quarter. 3rd stringers. Very little pressure.

    Tom Savage has done much better so far this preseason.

    I feel as if the last two years have jaded Texans fans so much as to quarterback play that the average Texans fan will never know what a decent quarterback looks like, and will always be clamoring for the guy at the end of the pine.

    What's funny to me is that we actually had good QB play in Schaub before the lisfranc injury (made 2 pro bowls legitimately) but Texans fan just act like he's in the same boat as retreads like Fitz/Hoyer.

    Texans fans for the most part dont know what they're looking at. Go to a game, they're all drunk

    True. Most fans only remember schaub for his pick sixes, for whatever reason.

    You cant be as inaccurate as Hack was in college and succeed in the NFL. Rather, you can, but you'd be one of maybe a few QBs in history.

    Hack is so bad. Really unbelievable how O'Brien made him look like a competent QB.
