NFL Network personality rips Jeff Saturday, Colts

1. Joe Thomas has to relax.

The NFL Network analyst was filling in on Good Morning Football on Friday morning and went off on Jim Irsay and the Colts for hiring Jeff Saturday as interim coach. However, Thomas’s rant was so over-the-top and bizarre that I would predict most people who watch the clip will end up rooting for Saturday to succeed.

Thomas came out of the gate hot, accusing Irsay of hiring his “drinking buddy.”

We all know that Saturday does not have any coaching experience. That has been made clear all week. But Saturday did play in the NFL for 13 seasons and has covered the league for ESPN for nearly 10 years. So to reduce Saturday to simply being Irsay’s “drinking buddy” like he’s some random guy at a bar is weak.
