Nathaniel Hackett is on the hot seat.
The Denver Broncos season is off to a very rough start, and there are already some people who feel their new head coach isn’t doing a very good job. ESPN’s Dan Graziano wrote that there has been talks within NFL circles that Nathaniel Hackett’s job “could be on the line” depending on what happens when the Denver Broncos face the Jacksonville Jaguars in London this coming Sunday. Graziano went on to say that he does not believe Hackett will be fired this early in his tenure, but it is noteworthy that people around the league are already calling for him to get the Axe.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is also talking about the Broncos making a potential change at head coach. He mentioned on “The Rich Eisen Show” this week that the Broncos’ new ownership group was not in place when Hackett was hired.
“What I know is they have a group of owners who did not hire Nathaniel Hackett and the Walmart crowd, they are smart, they are rich and they are ruthless. And I mean that in the most positive way that the word ruthless can be used,” Florio said. “They are not going to make anything other than a calculated, strategic business decision about what to do with Nathaniel Hackett.”

If Nathaniel Hackett were fired after just eight games, that would be something you don’t see everyday. The NFL isn’t known for making changes with coaches this early in the season. We doubt it will happen, but there is no question he’s one or two ugly losses away from losing his job.
The Broncos are 2-5 and are averaging 14.3 points per game, which is dead last in the NFL. The expectation for Hackett was that he would succeed right away after Denver acquired Russell Wilson in a blockbuster trade. Denver’s new ownership group will likely give him more time but Nathaniel Hackett is clearly getting most of the blame for the Broncos early season struggles.
