Nathaniel Hackett has only coached six games with the Denver Broncos, but there have been many people that have called for him to lose his job immediately.
Colin Cowherd is one of them.
The sports personality took to his talk show “The Herd” and stated that the Broncos need to move on from Hackett after just one season.
“Doesn’t matter if it’s fair…Nathaniel Hackett is not the answer. You’ve got to move off him after the year,” Cowherd argued.
“You have to roll the dice. There’s no way out of this,” Cowherd said.
“After the season, you move off Nathaniel Hackett,” Cowherd said. “Doesn’t matter if it’s fair. Go look at Matt Ryan’s numbers from Kyle Shanahan to (Steve Sarkisian). They fell off the table. Coaching matters.”
The Broncos fell to 2-4 with Monday’s loss, their second straight overtime defeat.
The Broncos, who entered the season with hopes of playing deep in the playoffs, rank last in the NFL in scoring at 15.2 points per game. They are also the most penalized team in the league.
Things don’t get any easier on Sunday as they play the surging 4-2 New York Jets.
