On Tuesday, Around The NFL colleague Dan Hanzus took to the Matrix in order to explain the Jets' current situation at quarterback. As more comments trickle out, though, we're coming to find that the Matrix may be too simple a descriptor.
And now, here are some quotes from the team's top two wide receivers to bring us up to speed:
Eric Decker (via ESPN.com): "I was a little surprised, to be honest with you (that the Jets drafted quarterback Christian Hackenberg in the second round) but (general manager) Mike (Maccagnan) and his scouts do their research and homework for a reason and they saw something special with him. I guess they wanted him earlier than later."
Honestly, we're just having some fun at the Jets' expense. While it seems like total chaos, the one thing that everyone seems to agree on is that Fitzpatrick is the right fit for the job. Jets coaches have alluded to it, and even though Marshall's comments were made to seem like he could do without Fitzpatrick, he understands the business side of the game.
Like most contract squabbles, this will likely play out before the start of training camp and we'll wonder why we spent so much time panicking. If not, we dive deeper into the Matrix.
