‘I don’t know who it is’: Giants’ Kayvon Thibodeaux gives BRUTAL response to Colts coach Jeff on Saturday, breaking his ‘snow angle’ and ‘put them to sleep’ celebration alongside injured QB Nick Foles
New York Giants rookie defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux has responded to criticism from Indianapolis Colts interim coach Jeff Saturday about his celebration after firing Nick Foles when Foles was injured on the play.
On Monday, Saturday he called Thibodeaux ‘trash’ and ‘tasteless’, after he made snow angles lying directly next to Foles, as Foles rolled in clear and obvious pain. He then mimicked Stephen Curry’s ‘put them to sleep’ celebration while Foles was still down.
“I don’t know who it is,” Thibodeaux said Wednesday. “So I’m not really worried about people commenting on me, and I don’t know.”

He called the celebration “rubbish” and “tacky” on Saturday while speaking to reporters this week.
In addition to being the interim coach of the Colts, Saturday was a six-time professional bowler, two-time All-Pro, Super Bowl champion, and considered by many to be a future hall of famer.
This long list of accolades would seem to make it either foolish or a seriously criminal lack of knowledge about their own profession for Thibodeaux or any player currently in the league to say they don’t know who Saturday is.
Although Thibodeaux has claimed he was unaware Foles was hurt despite clearly being in pain next to him, his most recent comments on the matter show a similar lack of remorse and lack of responsibility for his actions as his post-game comments. .
Colts quarterback Nick Foles injured his ribs after being hit by Kayvon Thibodeaux.

‘People can say anything about anything. So I’m not really too concerned about what people say,” Thibodeaux said.
“I play this game to be successful, and the only way I’m successful is by taking down quarterbacks.” So that’s what they pay me to do. That is what I did.
And celebrations are legal in football. I celebrated, and God willing, he continues to improve and recover.
Giants coach Brian Daboll also downplayed the incident earlier in the week, telling reporters the team had not addressed the issue with Thibodeaux at the time.
