Jeff Saturday is looking more like Jeff Sunday.
Okay, maybe that’s an overreaction.
After his first-ever NFL victory against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, Saturday has certainly injected some much-needed life and energy into this Indianapolis Colts team.
The Colts media team released a video from the locker room post their victory.
In this inspiring video, Saturday is seen giving his players a rousing speech.

Any Given Saturday
At the beginning of this clip, Saturday is seen highlighting one of his assistant coaches.
By bringing this coach up in front of all of the team members, Saturday demonstrates humility and the understanding that he truly cannot do any of this alone.
The Colts leadership also showed their faith and trust in Saturday, giving him the ceremonial game ball.
It is clear that they desperately want Saturday to succeed, but certainly, put their reputation on the line.
Saturday hadn’t ever coached a collegiate or NFL game before Sunday’s win against the Raiders.
Because of this, before this game, Saturday and the Colts organization were put through immense scrutiny.
While a close win against a struggling 2-7 Raiders team is certainly nothing to brag about, in the NFL, a win is a win.
As long as Saturday and the Colts can keep winning, it appears that he will have a job moving forward, which will likely silence any doubters and critics that may have existed in the past.
However, if the Colts continue their losing woes that existed pre-Saturday, the doubters and critics will surely come out in droves.
Only time will tell.
