This drama just won’t go away will it? Earlier in the week, Indianapolis Colts head coach Jeff Saturday didn’t hold back in going after NY Giants pass-rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux for his snow angel celebration next to a hurt Nick Foles. Again, though, Thibodeaux had no idea Foles was injured.

Thibodeaux clapped back at Saturday, but now a Hall of Famer is calling out the former No. 5 overall pick for how he handled things in Week 17. That would be Denver Broncos legend Shannon Sharpe. While on Undisputed with his co-host Skip Bayless, Sharpe went all in on torching Thibodeaux.

That was a passionate take delivered there by Sharpe, who clearly took issue with how Thibodeaux handled himself. What has Sharpe so angry with the NY playmaker is that once he got to the sidelines – after he saw that Foles was hurt – Thibodeaux decided to do the Steph Curry celebration. That was a big no-no.

Thibodeaux has said he hopes that Foles is feeling better, but he hasn’t delivered anything close to an apology. Instead, he fired off a bit of a jab at Saturday for the coach’s comments. At the end of the day, Thibodeaux is ready to move on from this incident, but members of the national media aren’t going to let this die down just yet.

With how great Thibodeaux has played during the second half of the season, sometimes we forget that he’s still a first-year player and only 22 years old. This has got to be a learning experience for him and we’re sure both Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen have connected with him about this whole thing.

As for Sharpe, we can understand where he’s coming from, but bringing up Damar Hamlin during his tirade was a bit out of line as well. Thibodeaux is a youngster who made a mistake, and he hopefully won’t do something of this nature again.
