After watching his team lose 12-9 on Thursday night and have another dismal offense performance, Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett thinks the problem with his offense is that they need to gel.
“I would say for sure we need more time,” Hackett told reporters Friday. “I think we’re in the process of we’re going to evaluate everything. We’re going to sit down as an offensive staff, we’re going to look at all of the things that we thought were good. Things that sometimes they look good, and we might not have capitalized on them, so we don’t want to necessarily throw those things out of there. We just want to find ways to get guy open and give them the opportunity to make plays. That’s what we’re looking for. We’re going to be sure we look at it with a fine tooth comb, all of us, every single one of us, to try to put those guys in the best position possible.”
We can blame Wilson for being cooked but the Nathaniel Hackett coaching experience is going exactly the way anyone that watched Nathaniel Hackett coach offense thought it would go.

A lot of the blame has fallen on the back of new Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, who hasn’t exactly proven his worth to the team yet. But Hackett says they are trying to still figure things out, including what works best for the quarterback.
“Right now, when we built the system, we built the system that was a combination of both our stuff and [Wilson’s] stuff,” Hackett said. “We wanted to be sure that we were doing it. A lot of the stuff carried over. There was a lot of stuff that we had that both he did and that I had done in the past. So we’re trying to mesh those things together.”
