Rating the dumbest issues stated 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 undecided precisely what it was, however it was one thing.

When you could have beat writers for the franchise sending tweets like this, you realize it was a doozy.

As a substitute of going by way of your complete introductory convention and railing in opposition to it, I made a decision to rank the dumbest issues stated on the press convention. I’ll clarify why they’re dumb beneath, however you get the gist.

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

The dumbest factor stated right here wasn’t even by Jim Irsay, as a result of this takes the cake. The straightforward fallacy in what Ballard stated is just a few issues. Initially, 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 selection.

Talking of the offensive line, there’s additionally this: in line 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 high quartile of the highest quartile of the highest quartile in successful.

Jim Irsay reduce a Steiner math promo on stay TV, and he was being 100% severe. I simply surprise what number of quartiles does he suppose exist? Does he suppose by way of quartiles, as a result of that explains lots.

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 individuals 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 knowledge primarily based on watching movie and compiling knowledge.

Analytics and movie go hand in hand, which is one thing I believe franchise homeowners (and analytics and movie individuals) 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 way of the flight.

Jeff Saturday has expertise, so cease asking

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

Jim Irsay lashes out on the media in regards to the Rooney Rule

Pondering 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 properly.

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.
