Former NFL offensive lineman Joe Thomas is not at all happy with the Colts' hiring of interim head coach Jeff Saturday.

The seven-time All-Pro tackle went on a heated rant during Friday's episode of Good Morning Football on NFL Network.

Thomas called the hire "disrespectful" and said team owner Jim Irsay hired his "drinking buddy" for a job he's not prepared to handle.

"When you hire your drinking buddy to be head coach of an NFL football team, it is one of the most disrespectful things I've ever seen in my entire life," he said.

"... It was the most egregious thing I can ever remember happening in the NFL... and I went 1-31 my last two years in the NFL..."

Saturday has no coaching experience at the college or pro level — leading many to question his qualifications for the job.

 Thomas certainly isn't the only person to call out this hire. Saturday has defended his qualifications against doubters like Thomas.

Saturday will lead the Colts into his first game against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
