Hackett’s collaborator on play-calling seems pretty obvious

Zack Rosenblatt announced on Twitter recently: “Nathaniel Hackett will return as the #Jets offensive coordinator in 2024, though Robert Saleh has explored adding to the offensive staff and creating a more collaborative play-calling process that would reduce Hackett’s role, per sources.”

There is no doubt this is going to happen, but it is not necessarily related to other assistant coaches joining Hackett’s play-calling.

It’s related to something entirely different.

Aaron Rodgers is the king of audibles, and few do it better. He’s a master at diagnosing the opposing defense scheme at the line, and often checks to a different play based on what his sophisticated eyes tell him.

“He is a maestro at the line,” former NFL center Shaun O’Hara said on NFL Network before last season.

“There are times you come up to the line and you see things they are in on defense you were not expecting and you’ve got to be able to change gears right way, you’ve got to be able to shift and transition. Aaron has done it a lot in his career.

“Think about how many times you’ve seen him walk up to the line and take a quick snap and boom, throw the ball when it looks like it’s supposed to be a run play. He does this all the time.”

So yes, there will be a more collaborative play-calling effort.

With Rodgers collaborating with the OC, especially when the QB gets to the line of scrimmage.
