Managing Nathaniel Hackett’s match in Broncos loss stuns Peyton Manning

last seconds of Monday Night Football season opener Between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks it was nerve-racking. And that doesn’t begin to describe how the Hall of Fame quarterback led the Broncos to that Their last Super Bowl win I felt about it.

Peyton Manning’s full reaction was shown live on ESPN’s “Manningcast” with his brother Ellie and special guest Shannon Sharp. They’ve watched reactions ranging from disbelief to silent horror as Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett, in his first game as an NFL coach, Take the ball from Russell Wilson’s hands With the game at stake.

Brewer: Russell Wilson wanted to party. He left Seattle with sarcasm and loss.

Instead of letting Wilson, the former Seahawks quarterback The Broncos replaced them with three players And a big draft set to Seattle in March, to attempt a conversion in fourth and fifth from Seattle 46, Hackett let his playing hour expire, then took one of his three remaining timeouts with 20 seconds of game time and sent it off Brandon McManus to attempt a 64-yard field goal would have won with the match. The ball flew far to the left, sending the Broncos into the net at the wrong end with a score of 17-16.

The whole series was crazy for Peyton Manning. “I think we should subtract the time, like, now,” he said, wriggling in his chair just over 50 seconds before the game.

Sharpe, the former Tight Broncos champ, was the Mannings guest in the latter part of the game and was losing his mind, mostly because Wilson wasn’t aiming for the…tight end. At one point, almost cursing and alarming Eli Manning, he exclaimed, “Shannon makes me nervous.”

It was the first appearance of a baffling coach for Hackett, who chose not to put the ball in the hands of the nine-time Pro Bowl quarterback and one-time Super Bowl winner – the man the team awarded a five-year, $245 million contract extension this month.

What to know from NFL Week 1: The Chiefs are okay. The Patriots certainly aren’t.

Instead of asking Wilson, who threw for 340 yards, to throw (or run) for another five, he went with Rackle whose career best field goal was 61 yards. He. She approx a job.

“He’s got this,” Sharpe said before the kick, noting that McManus’ first attempt at kick before Seattle called timeout was hooked. When he missed it, he added, “I told them to start in the correct vertical position and it would hook right up.”

Eli Manning noted that “Shannon is undefeated in describing what they should have done.”

Sharpe replied, “Eli, you heard me say, ‘Start in the right upright position,’ because he hooked the first, so start right. But he didn’t start it enough.”

Peyton observed Manning silently, letting his lowly body language tell the story with a sad smile and shaking his head. As the brothers signed, he predicted, “Al Broncos will be fine.”

Earlier on the show, he made a little dig at the kickers when he asked Eli Manning when they had their stand meetings. “They don’t,” Peyton cracked. “There are no kickers meeting rooms. They don’t exist.”

During the broadcast of the ESPN game, analyst Troy Aikman predicted that the endgame sequence “won’t do well with Russell Wilson.” And ESPN’s Ryan Clark tweeted“I’m not paying $256 million to let me hit a 64-yard field goal on Days 4 and 5.”

But Wilson, who was booed on his first game at Lumen Field, was diplomatic about the whole thing, praising McManus as “probably the best field goal scorer in the game”.

He will also not throw Hackett, after hiring him Two seasons as Green Bay Offensive Coordinatorunder the bus.

“I believe in Coach Hackett,” he said. “I believe in what we’re doing. I believe in everything. Anytime you can try to find a way to play fourth and fifth, that’s great too. But also, I don’t think it was a wrong decision. I think he can do it. Obviously we didn’t work out. In hindsight. But if we come to this situation again, I will not doubt anything he has decided.”
