Robert Saleh delivered a blunt two-word message to Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton after the New York Jets’ big win on Sunday night.
Coming into the outing, the main storyline everyone was talking about was Payton’s preseason comments regarding former Broncos head coach, and current Jets assistant coach, Nathaniel Hackett.
Specifically, Payton accused Hackett of doing a horrible job in Denver one season prior and seemed to blame him for all the team’s woes.
After New York earned a 31-21 win on Sunday, Saleh delivered a blistering two-word message to Payton.

“Stay humble,” it seems like Saleh could be seen saying.
NFL fans have been following the drama between the Jets and Broncos closely all week.
They immediately flocked to social media to react to Saleh’s defense of his assistant.
The worst coaching job I am witnessing in Denver.

Did Sean Payton talk shit about Saleh and the boys on air at any point?

No way he said that to a SB winning coach

After what he said on Hard Knocks…would have been funny if he say “Your guys played hard”

Big picture, in an NFL week that saw a Broncos cheerleader’s wild photos leak out and Trevor Lawrence’s wife’s outfit to his London game set the internet ablaze, it is pretty telling that Saleh and Payton came along and stole the headlines like this.
There is nothing like a good, ol’ fashioned coaching beef.

Will Sunday night mark a turning point in the Jets’ season?
Have Payton and the Broncos finally hit rock bottom with this most recent loss? One way or another, an answer to both of those questions will reveal itself soon enough.
