Let the “Breeeeeeece” chants fill the air in East Rutherford sooner rather than later. The Jets sorely missed their second-round pick, who was the clear Offensive Rookie of the Year favorite prior to an ACL tear in the seventh game of the season. His last significant run? A 62-yard TD tear that had CBS’s Ian Eagle exclaiming, “Breece Lightning!”
“BREECE LIGHTNING!!” ⚡⚡
Ian Eagle's call on Breece Hall's TD was ELITE.

And Lightning is an apt way to describe it. The Jets ignored all the “Running Backs Don’t Matter”™️ analytics gurus and took a difference-maker who could turn a ten-yard run into an explosion. And explode he did.

Hall also made a recent appearance at a Brooklyn Nets game. No. 20 is getting the mojo back.

Jets fans will monitor Hall’s recovery very closely throughout the offseason. Breece the Beast is one of the team’s most important players. Getting him back at full speed would be a huge boon for an offense that desperately needs it.
