Despite the hype and anticipation surrounding the addition of a quarterback Russell Wilson and offensive coach Nathaniel Hackett, the Denver Broncos currently have a defense that stands out a little more than offense.
On Saturday, journalists asked Hackett who is currently ahead of the attack or defense of the other side of the ball.
“I’d say defense is probably right now,” Hackett said. “From my point of view, I’m pretty tough on offense. Defence, because of the postponement from last year, I think these guys all played together, stayed with each other longer, I think that really helped them. This is a really established team, a veteran team that has played really good football in the past. As for us, we just do our best to play and learn all the time. We throw young guys in there with the ones that are really nice to see. Every day we’re just trying to get better.”
An attack would no doubt be in order given Wilson’s presence.
“It’s very unique in terms of its positivity,” Hackett said. “It’s just fantastic. Besides, if or when he gets angry, I think we’ll find out. But between the two of us, the amount of positivity flowing through the building and onto the pitch is a great environment.”
Hackett has yet to decide if he will start the preseason. He was candid about the temptation to try and win the game against the Cowboys.
“The preseason is always tough for a manager because you win, you feel great, but that doesn’t mean anything,” Hackett said. “You lose one and feel like crap. The way it is”.
Frankly, the only time a head coach should feel like crap after a preseason game is if he loses a starter to a serious injury or if he ate a bad meal. Clam Casino.
