Wayne Hunter: 'The whole NYC knows I was struggling'

It's not easy being Wayne Hunter.

After the right tackle played the two worst quarters of his football life on Saturday against the New York Giants, Hunter's abilities -- or lack thereof -- became the dominant talking point surrounding the New York Jets. That's pretty impressive when you factor in just how many problems Rex Ryan's team has right now.

Rapoport: Can Otah still help Jets?


The New York Jets need a good offensive lineman. Jeff Otah couldn't be that for them in July, but he's working his way back into playing shape. Ian Rapoport gets the scoop. **More ...**

Ryan announced Thursday that Hunter had lost his starting gig at right tackle, giving way to Austin Howard, who told reporters Thursday he will continue to lean on the veteran.

For Hunter, it all seemed inevitable.

"I wasn't surprised," Hunter told reporters Thursday, via the New York Daily News. "Everyone knows. The whole NYC knows I was struggling. I was waiting for it, to be honest."

"They got to make moves now," he said. "The Bills are around the corner."

That's New York for you.
