The Denver Broncos have been one of the most disappointing team in the NFL this season, and there are apparently some people who feel they may have already seen enough of their new head coach, Nathaniel Hackett.
ESPN’s Dan Graziano wrote in his column last week that there has been chatter within NFL circles that Nathaniel Hackett’s job “could be on the line” depending on what happens when the Broncos face the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on 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 have mentioned it as a possibility.
