When the New York Jets added star quarterback Aaron Rodgers this offseason in addition to several other offseason additions, it made it clear to most fans that the team had the potential to be one of the top teams in the NFL this season. But as offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett explains, that potential is meaningless if they don’t put it together.
Hackett made it very clear that despite all the talent, the team is going to need to have “cohesion” for it to thrive this season.
“Potential is one of those fancy words that we haven’t done anything yet,” Hackett said according to Antwan Staley of the New York Daily News. “Right now, we have some very good pieces, some very good people and players on the field. There has to be cohesion, there has to be a mesh. Aaron runs things on the field very uniquely, so there are a lot of things the guys are going to have to learn and get used to. Where that goes, I’m not sure. But I know there’s going to be some growing pains, there’s going to be some bumps. It is just about us getting on the field, everybody getting comfortable with each other and we will see where it goes.”
It will certainly be interesting to see just how much the Jets are able to improve this season.
