The Indianapolis Colts have made a pair of shocking moves on Monday morning after their brutal 26-3 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 9. Not only did they decide to fire their head coach Frank Reich, they also decided to replace him in the interim with their legendary former offensive lineman Jeff Saturday.
Saturday has been working with ESPN as a broadcaster since 2013, and has been part of the team’s Ring of Honor while also working as a consultant in the past few years for the Colts. Saturday’s decision was quite polarizing, and it didn’t take long for the internet to find a tweet from Saturday in which he rashes on his new Week 10 opponent in the Las Vegas Raiders.
“Raiders look horrible”
Those three words loom quite large now that Saturday has taken over for the Colts and will immediately be taking on the Raiders in Week 10. Saturday isn’t wrong in saying that the Raiders have looked horrible this season, because they have. But now Las Vegas will have an extra piece of bulletin board material that they will be looking to use to their advantage moving forward.
This will certainly add an extra layer of intrigue to the Colts and Raiders upcoming matchup. Saturday has literally never coached in his life, and will try to help the Colts turn things around after a catastrophic start to the season.
On the other hand, the Raiders fell to 2-6 on the season after getting upset against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and will be trying to solve their own struggles in Week 10 against the Colts. Whatever ends up happening, this game looks more interesting than it did earlier on Monday morning.
