In the impatient world of the NFL, there is rarely time for anything.
As the Denver Broncos look to find their stride and consistently play better, head coach Nathaniel Hackett believes his team is getting better...and will continue to do so.
Hackett spoke with Marty Lenz and Mike Rice on KOA's Colorado's Morning News on Friday, October 14 and said the turnaround from a 2-3 will take trust, hard work and accountability.
And a little patience, too.
"It does take time when you're out there in front of eighty thousand people to execute at the highest level in the world and know exactly where everybody is going to be," Hackett said. "These guys, as they continually trust each other, as they continually work with each other, as the coaches continually work with these guys, because there is so much new, that trust continually goes up. As long as we hold everybody accountable, they hold us accountable, we'll be able to grow and get better. That's our goal."
Coach Hackett also talked about the importance of division games, the balance between play-calling and execution, the possible return of safety Justin Simmons, cornerback Michael Ojemudia and tight end Greg Ducich, the retooling of the offensive line and more.
The Broncos will play at the Chargers on Monday, October 17. Coverage begins at 12 p.m. on KOA 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
