Nothing is more embarrassing than blowing a 33-point lead at halftime.
However, it’s something Jeff Saturday and the Indianapolis Colts did last Saturday.
While we are already heading into week 16, fans are still roasting the rookie head coach over his epic loss.
So what are fans saying on Twitter about his historic loss to the Minnesota Vikings?
Fans Aren’t Happy With Saturday As Their Coach
Some people still won’t let go of Saturday’s 33-point loss to the Vikings.
However, with his latest roster move, it’s giving fans more to use against him.

But with everything he does, fans are being critical.
They feel he’s in over his head, especially after his second-half meltdown.
This also shows that Saturday is in way over his head. He's no HC, and he was only brought in because he's a Colts legend. His hiring was a joke, a slap in the face to all the coaches who are more deserving.

While some people might try to defend Saturday, there’s no defense against blowing a 33-point lead.
Lady, Jeff Saturday did something no other NFL head coach has ever done- he lost a 33 point lead. In 5 games he's been outscored by 74 points in the 4th quarter. I'm not Monday morning-ing anything he's done a bad job. Get over it.

After such a loss, it’s become an embarrassment to fans of the Colts.
With that embarrassment, fans are calling for the firing of Saturday.
Fire Jeff Saturday too – it’s embarrassing at this point

When they see a team with a 33-point lead, fans expect a win and not a loss.
I don't care that they the Jeff Saturday Colts, 33-0 halftime lead usually means your team wins

However, one fan feels this epic loss by him now means another person will be the head coach in Indianapolis come 2023.
It looks likely that Jeff Saturday, Irsay's unconventional midseason hire, will not get the job on a full-time basis after the Colts blew a 33-point lead to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15.

While fans can only hope this is true, anything is possible with this franchise now.
It might be hard for Jim Irsay to fire his friend, despite the historic loss he had against the Vikings.
If he puts friendship over business, fans might have more to rant about online.
But instead of roasting their head coach, they will roast the Colts’ owner if he keeps Saturday.
