‘I don’t know who he is’: Giants’ Kayvon Thibodeaux gave a BRUTAL response to Colts coach Jeff Sabado who ripped his ‘snow angle’ and ‘put-’em-to-sleep’ celebration on the injured side quarterback Nick Foles
New York Giants rookie defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux responded to Indianapolis Colts interim coach Jeff Sabado’s criticism of his celebration after sacking Nick Foles when Foles was injured in the game.
On Monday, Saturday, Thibodeaux was called ‘garbage’ and ‘tasteless,’ after he made snow angles next to Foles, while Foles rolled over in clear and obvious pain. He imitated Stephen Curry’s ‘put-’em-to-sleep’ celebration while Foles was still bowing.
‘I don’t know who he is,’ Thibodeaux said Wednesday. ‘So I’m not too worried about people commenting on me, and I don’t know.’

Besides being the interim coach of the Colts, Sabado is a six-time pro 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 appear to make it silly or a serious criminal ignorance of his own profession for Thibodeaux or any player currently in the league to say they don’t know who Saturday is.
Although Thibodeaux said he didn’t know Foles was hurt despite the obvious pain by his side, his latest comments on the matter show a similar lack of remorse and lack of accountability for his actions as his comments after the game.

‘People can say anything about anything. So I’m not too worried about what people are saying,’ Thibodeaux said.
‘I play this game to be successful, and the only way I’m going to be successful is if I sack quarterbacks. So that’s what I get paid to do. That’s what I did.’
‘And celebrations are legal in football. I celebrated, and God willing he continues to get better and recover.’
Giants coach Brian Daboll also downplayed the incident earlier in the week and told reporters the team had not addressed the issue with Thibodeaux at the time.
