MAY 23 2017 FILE

Actually the preseason, but, seeing as the Jets 2017 season will probably be over five weeks into the regular season, why not enjoy the meaningless games while they're meaningless?

The first teamers looked downright good, and quarterback Christian Hackenberg showed definite signs of progress in extensive action in the Jets' preseason opener against the Titans at MetLife Stadium. All in all, considering the lack of talent on the field with Hackenberg, it was an inconclusive game.

But Saturday night, as the preseason got under way, the Jets looked like something else. Instead of breaking down the game, let's focus on the individual players or units that stood out, for better or worse. Hackenberg completed 18 of 25 passes for 127 yards in the 7-3 win over the Tennessee Titans, his only turnover a botched snap. Anderson made a nice 53-yard catch on the opening drive, which ended with McCown's 4-yard TD pass Charone Peake. On Tanney's first play.

Josh Martin also collected a sack and jumped on a fumble in the second half, but seemed to pop up everywhere as long as he was on the field. His 5.01 yards per attempt was positively Gabbert-ian. And it will be the first time the Jets will be playing a true home game in this summer series. He also rushed for six yards. Romar Morris and Jordan Todman were the opposite of inspiring.

Bryce Petty, a fourth-round pick in 2015, finished up and was 2 of 6 for 16 yards. The drive ended with Ryan Succop's 36-yard field goal. He also almost had a pass intercepted in the first half after it was tipped at the line. He finished 2 of 3 for 15 yards.

Hackenberg's production wasn't great - no points in eight possessions - but you have to grade on a curve when it comes to the former second-round pick. It was a lot of short passes for Hack, which are symptomatic of a West Coast offense.
