The Indianapolis Colts, along with four other NFL teams, are currently in the interviewing process for their next head coach.
Although Jeff Saturday did not exactly instill confidence within the organization that he had the tools to be their leader for 2023 and beyond, he has been asked back for a second interview.
When this news broke, it was met with mostly negative reactions.
Very funny that the Colts have to go through this whole process of asking Jeff Saturday what he would do if he was head coach of the Colts as if Jeff Saturday did not just spend several months as head coach of the Colts failing in every possible way https://t.co/w6Z1QTc8Ci

In the eight games that Saturday was the head coach for the Colts, and the team had a record of just 1-7.
Saturday won his first game, followed by seven consecutive losses.
It appears, at least in the eyes of most Colts fans and NFL analysts, that the best course of action by the organization is to move on from Saturday, moving in a different direction.
For whatever reason, however, the Colts will continue with interviewing Saturday, leaving the door open for him to return in 2023.
The Colts are in a status of rebuilding as a team.
It will likely take an offensive mastermind to help retool the Colts, and, as evidenced by the product that Saturday helped put on the field this season, he is not likely to have the tools to assist their rebuild.
Luckily for the Colts, they have interviewed several other marquee candidates, leaving Colts fans with a shred of hope that they will move on from Saturday.
With the fourth overall pick in the upcoming draft, the Colts will be able to build around a young star, likely a quarterback.
Which head coaching candidate presents the best opportunity to grow the team?
