Ryan Clark, Kyle Brandt in heated dispute over Jeff Saturday hire

Ryan Clark is not happy about Kyle Brant questioning ESPN staff over his frustrated reaction to the Colts Jeff Saturday appointed as their interim head coach after Frank Reich fired.

Brandt, from He serves as co-host of Good Morning Football on the NFL Network, He was questioned on the show on Tuesday if Saturday, who was an ESPN analyst, was “embarrassed, or at best uncomfortable taking on the job” because he had never coached in the NFL or at the college level.

“What are you saying here? Because he was a coach in high school and was on ESPN and yelling “Get Up?” It’s very informative too, because this is an ESPN employee and I would be intrigued to hear that anyone at ESPN has something important to say about Jeff Saturday in this The case — or is it, ‘Ah, we’re so happy for Jeff.’

Clark replied to Brandt on Twitter, writing“Say @KyleBrandt stick to talking about the people who cover football in your network. We’re good here. Be good.”

Pro Football Talk رد Reply To Clark’s tweet, saying, “It’s fair game for Kyle to point out that Saturday is unqualified for the job, but it seems pretty empty for the NFL’s direct employees who are pumping relentlessly and gratuitously to question ESPN analysts for not criticizing the rent.”

On the same topic on Twitter, someone tweeted, “But Kyle was right..nothing against Saturday and he should definitely not turn down the offer, but Kyle is right.”

Clarke responded to that tweet, writing, “No problem with his thoughts on Jeff. That’s his job. What we talk about on our network isn’t.”

A number of people on Twitter took to the reply section to share a clip of ESPN NFL analyst Marcus Spears criticizing the coaching movement.

“[I’m] I am so glad Jeff got this opportunity.” Spears said On “wake up” on Tuesday. “You know he’s a soccer player and you know Jeff wants to take this challenge head-on. But Gee, [Mike Greenberg] We have a responsibility. This is not a good look for the NFL, it is not a good look for the Indianapolis Colts…

“It immediately came to my mind, well what about the coaches in that organization already who were left there, based on everyone I kicked out?”

With Saturday’s appointment, the Colts passed two former NFL coaches among their staff, Joss Bradley and John Fox.

Saturday, 47, was the head coach of the football team at Hebron Christian Academy in Dacula, Ga.

in separate tweet On Tuesday, Clarke shared a video of his criticism of Saturday’s hiring, writing, “I believe in the intelligence and character of Jeff on Saturday; not his hiring. There are a lot of layers to this. Is it about privilege, race, nepotism, relationship or respect?”

“In the end, the convenience and knowledge of friendship overwhelmed Irsay…and could overwhelm the locker room.”

in Another TweetClarke spoke about why he responded to Brandt, noting that he “didn’t have enough hops for the highway”.

Ersay defended hiring on Saturday At a press conference on Monday, he said he was “happy” that the former player had no previous NFL coaching experience.

At the same press conference, he said Saturday that hiring had “shocked him”, and that things “escalated quickly” after a conversation with Irsay.

On Saturday he will play his temporary training match against the Raiders on Sunday.

The Colts shot Reich on Monday, the day after an ugly 26-3 loss to the Patriots. The Colts are a disappointing 3-5-1 this season.
