So far this NFL season, Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett has faced quite a bit of scrutiny with many suggesting he could be on the hot seat as his team continues to struggle. The criticism started during the first week of the season when Hackett’s terrible clock management might have cost Denver the game, and those questionable decisions continued in the following weeks all while the Broncos’ offense looked stale.
Still, despite all the rumors and speculation that his job could be on the line in the coming weeks, Nathaniel Hackett said that he isn’t feeling any extra pressure to perform than he usually puts on himself.
“I always put pressure on myself from the standpoint of that’s just me personally,” Hackett said, according to Pro Football Talk. “We want to win every game. When you lose games, you’re very upset about it. We are who we are, and we have to dig ourselves out of this. As a team, we have to come together. We always talk about adversity because it’s part of this game. The teams as you move forward — the ones that are tested with adversity — usually have the best chance to move forward.”
The Broncos have now lost four straight games and will have a chance to start to turn things around against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Sunday.
