Robert Saleh was asked why he’s sticking with Nathaniel Hackett as his offensive play-caller.
“It’s a fair question,” Saleh said. “I guess you guys will have a better idea when you see the all-22 from this one.”
So at first, he said it was a “fair question” but then kind of discounted the question.
Is Hackett a good play-caller? Perhaps, it’s hard to tell with the team’s QB issues following the injury to Aaron Rodgers, and some line issues.
However, Atlanta doesn’t have a QB great situation either, and they are now 6-6, bouncing between an inconsistent youngster (Desmond Ridder) and a journeyman, Taylor Heinicke, who is better served in a backup role. They also lost their right tackle in the second quarter today.
As Bill Parcells liked to say, “There is a way to win every game” and Atlanta head coach/OC Artie Smith is doing a good job manufacturing wins for the Falcons, even with offensive limitations.
So even with the aforementioned challenges the Jets face on offense, you gotta find a way to put more points on the board than they have been doing.
