Indianapolis lost its sixth straight game with Jeff Saturday as interim head coach and was beaten outright 38-10 by the New York Giants heading into the playoffs on Sunday. It’s too kind of you to say they are. They tend to forget that he’s 4-11-1 and their recent season was so bad it didn’t have to be.
The Colts started 3-2-1 and were 3-5-1 when former head coach Frank Reich was fired to give the franchise a head start in the next era. Reich’s dismissal may have been reckless, but it wasn’t entirely unjustified. The Colts’ offensive formula was stale, and Indianapolis was struggling with Matt Ryan as the starting quarterback.
Nearly everything that happened after that point is indefensible. Starting Sam Ehrlinger in the middle of a quality season made no sense. Hiring Saturday as interim head coach made no sense, and since his inauguration, he’s been as bad as anyone expected. The Colts allowed him the biggest comeback in NFL history two weeks ago, and Sunday was his third straight week when opponents clinched something against them.
If the Colts are to return to good standing in the years to come, team owner Jim Irsay needs to… relax. take a vacation Let’s start doing something meaningful. Bottoming out would probably be the best move for the Colts in the long run, but based on how this whole season looks like, it’s hard to be confident that this mission will be successfully executed. It was a slow, not painful crawl towards the line. .
Prior to the game, NFL Network reported Saturday was still in dispute over the Colts’ full-time head coaching job.
There is nothing to indicate that he is ready for this position now. He has little coaching experience in high school and has never had NFL experience.
Everyone seems to understand this from the jump, except Arsay, who is the biggest problem for the Colts. But the Colts don’t seem to have a stable foundation to help them succeed. Things need to cool off and become a little more normal for the Colts.Saturday’s experience failed. You don’t have to make things worse by making this worse and more corrupt in 2023. Start using your logic, Jim.
This Colts season ended a long time ago and didn’t need to play out like this. A series of firings and benchings, his one of the wildest head coaching hires in NFL history, showed clear signs of impatience and arrogance along the way. This was a complete implosion that sapped confidence in the future. Any advice for Jim Irsay about his New Year’s resolutions? Take it easy for a few years.
