The crew is not less than making an attempt one thing to assist him out with that by hiring Jerry Rosburg as a senior assistant.
His job will likely be to sit down within the press field and be an additional set of eyes and ears for Hackett to assist him with in-game choices.

In Week 1, Hackett and the Broncos have been harshly criticized for permitting the clock to run down late within the fourth quarter and try a 64-yard discipline objective as a substitute of permitting Russell Wilson try and convert a 4th-and-5 scenario. The kick badly missed, and the Broncos misplaced on the street.
In Week 2, the Broncos have been getting humiliated by their very own residence followers once they began counting down the play clock to assist them keep away from delay-of-game penalties.
Rosburg was beforehand an assistant coach (particular groups and related head coach) with the Baltimore Ravens between the 2008 and 2018 seasons.
