The guys from our Dublin to Denver podcast previewed the Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders game this week and they brought up a good question. Is Nathaniel Hackett’s job on the line?
The obvious answer is yes, but what happens if the woeful Josh McDaniels-led Raiders sweep the Broncos and the offense puts out another stinker of game. I think that that point, general manager George Paton should just fire Hackett and roll with whoever and whatever in the final games of the season.
Getting swept by a Raiders team whose two of their three wins came against Hackett’s Broncos could be the nail in the coffin for his tenure in Denver. I still think you just let it ride until the end of the season and make wholesale change at that time, but boy would it be tough not to support a midseason firing if this team lays a stinker on Sunday and gets swept.
What do you think: is this do or die for Nathaniel Hackett on Sunday?
