GREEN BAY – The Packers’ offensive assistant coaches met with the media on Sunday. Here’s a sampling of their key comments:
Offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett
On Jordan Love’s performance in Buffalo:
Especially coming off of that little bit of an injury, I thought he did a really good job. I think that he had a couple of those errors that you just want to take out of his game, when people were running right at him. That’s the first time you get to see how he’s going to react, and I think that’s good for him to put in his memory bank. So that he can just take care of the football, and then those drives are going to be even better. I thought he strung together a couple really good drives — and versus a really good defense, and at their house.
On the No. 1 offense right now:
You just never know until the real game. I think from a standpoint of how the guys know what we want to accomplish, and what we’re trying to do, I think the guys are at a very, very high level. This is the third year of this system. It’s a lot more fun when you’re not thinking about the plays and now you’re drawing some things up and trying to be even more creative. The guys are into it a little bit more to be a little creative, so I think that just makes it more exciting.
He’s a young player. He’s going to have a lot of growing pains. The good thing about Josh is it’s not too big for him, so I think that he’s going to really embrace the challenge, and he owns it. He’s a passionate guy. Him being comfortable with Aaron is something that I think has gotten better. Aaron gets on him every now and then, like he gets on everyone, and I think that first one’s kind of a shock to the face for anybody, but he’s kind of grown. He takes that information and the things he gains from Aaron and makes him more comfortable and more confident.
