The Colts shocked the NFL world after they fired head coach Frank Reich then they shocked the NFL world after they announced that former Colt Jeff Saturday would be the interim coach.
Saturday had no previous NFL coaching experience, so his hiring was met with many people’s criticism. One of the more notable people to criticize the Colts and Saturday was former head coach Bill Cowher who called the hiring a disgrace to the coaching profession.
Now, Saturday and the Colts surprised many people when they beat the Raiders on Sunday, and Saturday had some words to say after the game about Cowher’s comments.
“I respect his opinion, you know? Here’s the thing. God is my defender, man. I don’t have to defend myself. I am absolutely comfortable in who I am. I respect all those guys. Whoever has whatever negative opinion, I can assure you, it’s not gonna change who I am or what I believe I’m called to do. I have no idea, and I still don’t, how successful I’ll be, but we’re gonna work hard at it and I believe I can lead men and lead the staff. I’m excited about the opportunity.”
If he wins, he’ll probably stay on as coach, but then that’ll open the door to more problems, and if he starts to lose, the Colts will probably say no harm, no foul.
Saturday had to transfer ownership of his Fantasy Football team.
Jeff Saturday, the Indianapolis Colts’ interim head coach, was celebrating his first career win with his team on Sunday. It’s a stark difference from the wins he’s been used to this season…in fantasy football.
During the CBS broadcast of the Colts and Las Vegas Raiders, sideline reporter Melanie Collins revealed that Saturday had to give up his fantasy football team when he accepted the job from Colts owner Jim Irsay.
It was a league with former Broncos and Colts, including Peyton Manning, so Eric Decker is now the general manager of Saturday’s bunch.
