Not much hope in Jets’ Aaron Rodgers-Nathaniel Hackett pairing: ESPN’s Kevin Clark

The Jets are optimistic about their upcoming season, but not everyone feels the same way.

ESPN’s Kevin Clark joined the network’s flagship football show “NFL Live” on Friday and said he doubts the partnership between Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the team’s offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.

“I was in Green Bay two years ago doing a story on Matt LaFleur,” Clark said, referring to the Packers head coach who was hired in 2019 and coached the past four seasons of Rodgers in the NFC before the QB landed with the Jets last offseason. .

Clark continued: “I felt the best thing about the Rodgers-LaFleur relationship was that LaFleur pushed Rodgers into new concepts, into new schemes, into blind throws that he wasn’t into. comfortable to achieve. And I just feel like that’s not it.

He later added: “I just don’t see a lot of hope here.” »

Hackett was Rodgers’ offensive coordinator with the Packers from 2019 to 2021, when he helped oversee Rodgers’ 2020 and 2021 NFL MVP seasons.

Rodgers, of course, didn’t play with Hackett in his first season as a Jet beyond the first four games of the season after tearing his Achilles tendon on opening night against the Bills.

Without Rodgers, the Jets’ offense struggled, finishing 29th in the NFL in scoring at 15.8 points per game.

Gang Green is hoping for better things this season as they try to end their now 14-year playoff drought.
