Jeff Saturday to retire after Pro Bowl.

37 posts in this topic

Sad that he couldn't end his career in Indy but we will probably sign him to a one day contract.

 

I would even consider retiring his number. He should be a HOF'er and I know he will soon be in the ROH.

Not only the one day contract, I hope Jim Irsay has a front office job for him.  Obviously, he has outstanding leadership and communication skills.

Hopefully we can sign him to a one day contract so he can end it the right way.

Great idea.

Best of luck to Jeff....he provided us leadership for years!!!  I understand he needed to leave for the Packers, but I wish he would have stayed to wear the Colt jersey for the last time....not the discount double-check boy's colors!! (Hey Rodgers... :funny:  discount double-check baby!)

 

Good luck Jeff!!!  I am hoping AQ Shipley is the next Jeff Saturday......going from seemingly forgotten to the Pro Bowl!!  :)

I think Mr. Irsay has hinted as much...

I dont know if Jeff still lives in Indy...but he could be an assistant to Grigson...

.....two old O-linemen trying to find us two (or 3) new O-linemen

I would love to see Jeff come back and retire as a Colt !!  He would also be a great addition to the front office or a coaching position.  I always liked Jeff, he reminded me of a big teddy bear  LOL.  Best of luck Jeff in all you do and Thank You for all you did for the Colts !!!

I think Jeff might have too much to do with the NFLPA for him to take a front office job. I seem him far more likely taking a bigger role in the PA than with the Colts, though I wouldn't be upset one iota if I were wrong.

He and his wife still own their family house in Carmel that they've had for years.

I agree we should sign him to a one day contract, but don't know about retiring his number.  Actually his number has already been given to another player:

 

 

http://www.colts.com/team/roster/Lee-Ziemba/df8a25a0-508f-4bb1-8e41-b8169e00d84e

 

Not that Ziemba's number couldn't be changed, but I would think if they had any intention of retiring his number then they wouldn't have given it out again so quickly.

 

I definitely wish him the best in his future endeavors, whatever he decides to do.  And thanks for the memories Jeff :)

With Will Wolford leaving the broadcast, I wonder if Mr. Sunday would be considered as his replacement? Jeff has said he wants to get into broadcasting and seemed to be pretty comfortable when he did his weekly spot on Bob & Tom.

With only 16 Colts players and a whole new front office and coaching staff left over from last year Jeff would probably feel like a stranger. The old "gang" is gone

He can't be a Oline consultant or something here??? Or maybe we fly him out here for our 1st home game and do the induction to the Ring of Honor

I said this over a year ago. I would not be surprised if Goodell has not sent him a message as well. Can't have too many 'friends" around you.

I'm never the one to throw HoF around when talking about players.

Outside of Peyton, I think Saturday has the best shot.

I'm sure the FO gig that Irsay offered him still stands. He ought to come back when he's ready and coach our O-line!

Had a great career, hopefully he can do some kind of work for the Colts organization. He's a true champ.

Well done, Jeff, on a great career.  Not only that, but you were a strong leader on and off the field and a very classy person.

I certainly hope Mr. Saturday is brought back in some capacity with the team. For some reason i don't recall hearing that Wolford was leaving... if so I actually liked hearing Jim Sogi on the tv side during preseason. Jeff could work well to he always seemed like a smart guy.

Obviously a favorite player of just about everyone, Colts front office or NFLPA would make me happy.

marvin. Near the top in just about every major receiving number their is. Even with log jam at WR it will be hard to keep Marvin out.

Nope. He may not be out entirely but he will have a hard time getting in. The people that Marvin over took to be near the top of those categories? Those are the people still waiting to get in. After nearly 10yrs.

There will need to be OL from this era get in. There are a few greats. Ogden being one, who is probably getting in this year. Then after that its probably Jeff. Rare position, solid résumé, and the fact he was Mannings center. Ontop of the several other feel good factors. UDFA, NFLPA "savior" etc.

Will took the job as a head football coach at a H.S. in Louisville and it sounded on the last radio broadcast like they were wishing him well as if he wouldn't be back.  Maybe I just misinterpreted what they were saying.

 

And I agree that Sorgi was pretty good.

    • If there ever was one! I too suffer from this affliction  from time to time.
    • I dont think he needs those glasses. 
    • If we don't have anymore key injuries over the next few weeks and of course Luck stays healthy I see no reason we cant pull a 2014! As in get to 5-2 after starting 0-2. It is 1 game at a time but looking at our next 4 opponents we should win those games = Jags, Bears in Indy, at Texans, and at Titans. Texans wont have Watt which is a huge blow and I think we are definitely better than the Titans. We have 3 Division games coming up and if we win all of those and get to 5-2 we will be in the driver seat.
    • I won't lie Adonis 1. I did find your post hysterical; but you do realize that the moment you call for a prohibition on all doom & gloom threads that somebody will inevitably start a topic: Why so many fans are in such denial about how dire our team's post season prospects are?    You can't win no matter what you do because you're either at death's door or blissfully ignorant of how far the Colts have to go to reach the pinnacle of success in the NFL.    Some people aren't happy unless they are moaning & groaning about something man. You know the type. They could win the lottery & complain it's not big enough or being awarded in installments over time isn't structured to their personal satisfaction. Sigh...   Look, depending on my mood, I can vent to the level of an art form. But, generally...I'm just grateful we aren't as dreadful as the Bears right now. Sorry Bears fans. Go Cubs? Just trying to make Illinois fans feel better man.

    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
