The day after the Colts fell to 0-9, the players decided that it was time for them to meet in the hopes of turning things around.
What took them so long?
Per the Associated Press, center Jeff Saturday said Friday that a players-only meeting was held after the latest embarrassing loss, this time to the Falcons.
“I felt like it needed to be said and I said it,” Saturday said. “We just need to play better as a team, we need to get wins and ultimately that’s what it was about.”
Saturday declined to offer any details regarding the conversation. Receiver Reggie Wayne was more forthcoming.
“He didn’t have to yell, he didn’t have to scream or sound like a macho man or Randy Savage,” Wayne said. “Play football, nothing else. Love football, nothing else. Be a man, nothing else.”
The Colts have their last, best chance at a win on Sunday, when the 2-6 Jaguars come to town.
Of course, the fans may regard the outcome as a win only if the team loses, moving another step closer to Andrew Luck.
