Broncos must show improvement with game and clock management

None of the previous points are going to matter if Nathaniel Hackett doesn’t call a much better, much more clean game from the sidelines.

Hackett needs to be much more mindful of getting his play calls to his quarterback in a quicker fashion. This should help with the delay of game and near delay of game penalties the Broncos have piled up so far this season.

This should also help with time outs and keeping them for key situations, rather than burning through them the way he did last week.

The Broncos have been bad so far this season, but Hackett has been atrocious. This is going to be a huge game for him to restore confidence in Broncos Country and perhaps even the front office.

Inexperience is one thing, but Hackett will need to learn from his mistakes quickly because they simply can’t continue. He also needs to lean more on his veteran quarterback and trust him to be a field general and perhaps make some calls on the fly.

In summary, the entire operation just needs to be more clean and more efficient as that has been the biggest hindrance for the team through two games.
