Colts’ Jeff Saturday Has Already Proved The Doubters Wrong As Colts Win

Colts' Jeff Saturday Has Already Proved The Doubters Wrong As Colts Win

Much of the attention of the NFL world was focused on Indianapolis this week. After firing Frank Reich, the team had to hire an interim coach. There were plenty of options, including former NFL head coach Gus Bradley already on the staff. But, they instead made a controversial choice, and hired former All-Pro center and team legend Jeff Saturday as coach. Saturday had no NFL coaching experience and his only coaching experience was a mediocre stint as a high school head coach in Georgia.

The criticism poured in almost immediately. . Most thought it was insulting to the coaching profession for him to be hired over people who have dedicated their adult life to coaching football at a high level. And, on the CBS pregame show, Hall Of Fame Coach Bill Cowher spoke out about Saturday.


But, the new coach and his Colts had the last laugh.

The Colts won Saturday’s debut over the Raiders 25-20

Behind a sensational performance from Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis got back into the win column, and improved to 4-5-1. Taylor had 22 carries for 147 yards and a touchdown in probably his best outing of the year so far.

It was a statement win for the team and their new head coach after facing questions all week.

It’s even funnier considering this tweet from Saturday earlier in the season.

Here’s Saturday after the game.

The Colts’ season is very much still in play, and they will look to upset the Eagles next week.
