Hackett Makes Sense For Bills

The Bills coaching staff has been all but completed, and many fans weren’t super happy with some of the decisions. Besides defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, a majority of the staff doesn’t have a ton of experience in the NFL. Of the members that do, there doesn’t come an incredible history of success.

One of the members that has minimal professional experience is the new offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, who’s only former NFL experience was as a quality controls coach.

Before you say that this doesn’t make sense because he isn’t a big name remember that Hackett was the one calling plays in Syracuse, not Doug Marrone. So, therefore, if you are in favor of the Marrone offense Hackett is the guy that really makes the most sense.

Marrone may have been the head coach, but it was Hackett’s offense that helped lead the Orange to victory and utilize quarterback Ryan Nassib. He’s build quite the reputation in his time at Syracuse and obviously is already familiar with Marrone’s desired systems.

So if you question some of the other hires, I don’t really blame you. Some are a bit shaky. However, don’t get too down on Hackett until you can see what he can do. Just like with Marrone, you should keep an open mind.
