Rating the dumbest issues mentioned on the Colts’ Jeff Saturday press convention

Jeff Saturday was launched because the interim head coach of the Indianapolis Colts in wake of Frank Reich being fired and … hoo boy that press convention was one thing.

I’m unsure precisely what it was, but it surely was one thing.

When you’ve gotten beat writers for the franchise sending tweets like this, you recognize it was a doozy.

As a substitute of going by the whole introductory convention and railing towards it, I made a decision to rank the dumbest issues mentioned on the press convention. I’ll clarify why they’re dumb beneath, however you get the gist.

Chris Ballard saying the media was too vital of him for not drafting receivers and now the OL is unhealthy.

The dumbest factor mentioned right here wasn’t even by Jim Irsay, as a result of this takes the cake. The straightforward fallacy in what Ballard mentioned is a number of issues. To start with, no person was stopping him from drafting offensive linemen and large receivers. There are SEVEN, rely ‘em, seven rounds within the draft and 256 picks within the draft and the Colts had the selection to draft an offensive linemen within the first two days. Nonetheless, earlier than Bernhard Raimann, the final linemen drafted by the Colts within the first two rounds was Quenton Nelson in 2018. They made that alternative.

Talking of the offensive line, there’s additionally this: in accordance with Spotrac, the Colts are first in spending on the offensive line by nearly $4 million. They’ve invested within the offensive line—they’re simply not good at it. That’s on Chris Ballard.

Jim Irsay saying the Colts are within the prime quartile of the highest quartile of the highest quartile in profitable.

Jim Irsay reduce a Steiner math promo on dwell TV, and he was being 100% severe. I simply marvel what number of quartiles does he assume exist? Does he assume by way of quartiles, as a result of that explains rather a lot.

Jim Irsay thinks fashionable coaches are cowards for “relying” on analytics

I’m bored with persevering with to have this dialogue about analytics as a result of folks see it as a zero-sum sport. Utilizing analytics means not trusting your intestine and is anti-football, when in actuality, most of what soccer coaches do is analytics. When coaches put collectively a gameplan, they use information based mostly on watching movie and compiling information.

Analytics and movie go hand in hand, which is one thing I believe franchise house owners (and analytics and movie folks) ought to perceive.

Jim Irsay doesn’t construct rockets to go to Mars

With the best way the Colts have constructed, their rocket has every part however the engine and wings and collapse halfway by the flight.

Jeff Saturday has expertise, so cease asking

Jeff Saturday is 20-16 as a head coach…at Hebron Christian College. To be truthful, it’s the next profitable share than Jeff Fisher, so he may need a shot.

Jim Irsay lashes out on the media concerning the Rooney Rule

Considering that journalists don’t get held accountable is hilarious, contemplating (/gestures at Twitter). Utilizing the “I do know journalism, I used to be a journalism main” as an excuse can be hilarious as effectively.

This press convention went even additional past only a regular intro presser. This was one of the vital unhinged press conferences I’ve ever seen, and hopefully Saturday is able to coa—

Oh that is going to be hilarious.
