Sean Payton recently disparaged former Denver Broncos head coach, Nathaniel Hackett, and Aaron Rodgers backed up his new offensive coordinator.
Payton has been under the spotlight for a little while now, after taking over as the Broncos’ new head coach. Then as of a few days ago, the 59-year-old head coach criticized the job by Hackett. In which, the Jets quarterback has some words of his own.
Those comments were very surprising — for a coach to do that to another coach,” Rodgers said, as seen on “Back Together Weekend.” “My love for Hackett goes deep, you know? We had some great years together in Green Bay, kept in touch, love him and his family. He’s an incredible family man, an incredible dad. On the field, he’s arguably my favorite coach I’ve ever had in the NFL. His approach to it, how he makes it fun, how he cares about the guys — just how he goes about his business with respect, with leadership, with honesty, with integrity.
“It made me feel bad that someone who’s accomplished a lot in the league is that insecure that they have to take another man down to set themselves up for some sort of easy fall if it doesn’t go well for that team this year. I thought it was way out of line and inappropriate. I think he needs to keep my coaches’ names out of his mouth.”
Sean Payton had regrets over his comments before Aaron Rodgers had said a word. Both the Jets and Broncos could be a team to watch this season. The Jets are looking for some success at the QB spot, while Payton is looking to lead a Broncos’ team that has struggled since reaching the Super Bowl in 2016. The two teams are set to play each other on Oct. 8 this season in Denver.
