Damien Woody: Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett 'doesn't know what the hell he's doing out there'

Perhaps no other first-year head coach has been criticized more through the first two weeks of the NFL season than Denver Broncos lead man Nathaniel Hackett.

It started following their season-opening road loss on "Monday Night Football" against the Seattle Seahawks in which Hackett controversially elected to go for a 64-yard, go-ahead field goal attempt instead of letting star quarterback Russell Wilson try to convert on a 4th-and-5. The 42-year-old admitted the following day that "Looking back at it, we definitely should have gone for it."

Despite having homefield advantage against a seemingly inferior opponent in the Houston Texans in Week 2, Hackett's Broncos were only barely able to escape the upset bid with a 16-9 victory to even their record at 1-1.

During Thursday morning's episode of "Get Up" on ESPN, Damien Woody had harsh words for the new man in charge.

Hackett will be under the primetime lights for the second time in three games to start his Denver tenure with Week 3's "Sunday Night Football" contest against the San Francisco 49ers.
