Christian Hackenberg gets second start for Express

Christian Hackenberg’s AAF debut left a lot to be desired, but Memphis Express coach Mike Singletary isn’t ready to give up on his quarterback just yet.

The former Penn State star and Jets’ 2016 second-round draft bust threw for 87 yards and an interception in a 26-0 loss to the Birmingham Iron in the first weekend of Alliance of American Football play, but he’ll be under center again when the Express host the Arizona Hotshots on Saturday.

“He’s a guy that’s, you forget he’s only 23 years old,” Singletary said. “He’s a young quarterback that really hasn’t had a chance to really get his career started yet. I think it’s going to be a growing opportunity for him, and I’m excited for him. I’m excited to see what he has.”

It’s already pretty clear what Hackenberg has: a resume that includes being waived and cut from three NFL teams over a seven-month span in 2018 with zero game time and a bit of a potty mouth.

Whatever else Singletary thinks he might see in a second start over the weekend is up for debate.

“I think Game 2 will tell us a lot what Game 1 really meant,” Singletary said.

The options behind Hackenberg aren’t all that enticing. Former Titans QB Zach Mettenberger and 2017 Troy graduate Brandon Silvers are awaiting their shots if Hackenberg doesn’t get it together, and soon.

Silvers replaced Hackenberg in the opener, competing 3-of-4 passes for 22 yards and an interception.
