The Denver Broncos are 0-1 after a complete botch in a final drive by first-time head coach Nathaniel Hackett this year.

Simply put, Nathaniel Hackett couldn’t hack it when it mattered most to them Denver Broncos on Monday night soccer.

While this is his first time NFL Head coach, he had the better team going into the match. Yes, it was at Seattle Seahawks, a team still led by one of the best head coaches at both levels in Pete Carroll. Though it’s Russell Wilson’s not-so-friendly homecoming to the Pacific Northwest, the Broncos return to Denver with a loss that should have ended in victory.

But Hackett has to learn from this What a terrible last ride head coach for the first time…

Denver Broncos: 3 mistakes by Nathaniel Hackett that cost them last drive

3. Too much short pass underneath, really had to cook Russ instead

While the second half was about points, Hackett got a little too cute on the Broncos’ final drive. Denver was able to reduce the deficit to one point after a 40-yard field goal earned the previous possession from sure-footed Broncos kicker Brandon McManus. After forcing the Seahawks to go three and out in their subsequent possession, it was time to win them…

So Denver got the ball on his own 22-yard line with 4:02 on the clock. Hackett may be a first-time head coach, but Wilson has orchestrated so many winning streaks in his Hall of Fame career. The Broncos only needed a field goal, but had time and, most importantly, momentum on their side. Instead, Denver has been a bit too methodical in trying to matriculate football on the field.

In 3:47, the Broncos went just 32 yards before attempting a 64-yard field goal with 20 seconds left on a fourth and five with two timeouts remaining. We’ll get to the absolute madness of these concepts in a moment, but this was an opportunity for Hackett to let Russ cook. Unfortunately, the Broncos didn’t have a game that went over nine yards over the course of four minutes.

Denver traded Wilson to make a difference in scenarios like this and they screwed up.
