The past few years for Nathaniel Hackett have been something of a whirlwind.
He was applauded for his work with the Green Bay Packers, helping Aaron Rodgers to two consecutive league MVP awards.
After this success, he was hired to be the Denver Broncos head coach for the 2022 season, which didn’t end up panning out.
Now that Rodgers is on the New York Jets, the team has reunited them, naming Hackett as their new OC.
Hackett recently appeared in a segment on the NFL Network with Peter Schrager, highlighting his favorite throws from Rodgers’ career.
Nathaniel Hackett was Aaron Rodgers’ OC for over 2,000 of his pass attempts in Green Bay.
Here are his two favorites.

As indicated by Schrager, Hackett was with Rodgers for more than 2,000 pass attempts.
He’s seen so many of Rodgers’ throws between training camp, practice, and the regular season.
To nail down favorites must be difficult, given the number of impressive throws that Rodgers has been responsible for.
The first throw that Hackett identified is from a Thursday Night Football game against their rival, the Chicago Bears.
During this particular play, Rodgers was able to draw a penalty out of the defense and threw a touchdown to Jimmy Graham.
This was more than a touchdown pass, as Hackett said, “That was the first time I saw him being able to attack the defense from that standpoint.”
Hackett also referenced what he believes is the craziest throw that he saw Rodgers make.
On this play, Rodgers rolled out to his right and appeared to be throwing the ball out of bounds.
However, he was able to find Jamaal Williams in the end zone, securing a great play against the Kansas City Chiefs.
