Andrew Luck's Beard

Will We Have Pat McAfee Next Year?

13 posts in this topic

Pat's a fan favorite, or at least he's one of my favorite Colts player, because of just the things he does and how he reacts to them. From the GIANT Trindon Holliday return hit against the Broncos, to the PED test the following day, to the Pat McAfee show, to the drunk swim session that one year, to the car thing to that army guy at Lucas Oil Stadium, and now to the Nude Luck picture, Pat brings life to the Colts organization. He's also one of the best punters in the league, especially at pinning the opponent in their own 20. However, he's fallen off a bit this year. So, my question to you guys is do you think Pat McAfee will return next year?

YEESS!!!!!! Pat McAfee should return. He does bring life to the Colts community. How can you hate a guy like this? He is truly the fan favorite

I am not sure.  I figured he would get tagged last year and he did but I also expected the Colts would work out a long term deal after he was tagged and they didn't.  He is a hold over from the Polian era which is a strike against him because GMs tend to like their own guys.  However, he is very good at what he does that I think that would trump that fact but I am also not Ryan Grigson.  I know the local media says Pat really wants to stay here so I doubt he's going to go on the market looking for the biggest offer he can get and probably look for a deal that will let him stay with the Colts but if they don't give him one then yeah clearly he'll leave.

GM's tend to like players that are good at their jobs.  I think who brought them here first is not very important.

Which is why I said "However, he is very good at what he does that I think would trump that fact..."

I'd like to say, "Yes, he's really good for the team and the locker room, but, well...you know."

 

I hope they can make a deal with him of some sort to keep him.  He's great for team morale and for the city of Indy.  My wife is constantly cracking up at Facebook Fridays.

I don't think GMs, particularly Grigson, have anything against holdovers from previous GMs.  If that was the case Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis would be playing somewhere else.

I sure hope he sticks around.  He is one of my favorites, as well as one of the most entertaining Colts on the field and off.

Clearly people are missing the part where I said the fact he's very good at what he does I think trumps that.  Also yes GMs do tend to dump guys from the previous GMs unless they are stars like Wayne or Mathis why do you think Grigson gutted the roster when he came in?  If there wasn't a problem with talent to start with they wouldn't have been brought in.  GMs like to win or lose with their own, again unless you have star players.  Is McAfee a star player?  I think he is but I also thought the Colts would have worked out a long term deal with him last season to avoid having to dealing with him this off-season too.  The fact that he didn't tells me Grigson is at least open to maybe moving on from McAfee.  Does it mean they will?  I hope they don't but I am not going to be completely blown away by it if it happens.

    • Colts will rely on the draft instead of being big free-agent spenders
      There's a BIG difference between activating someone for practice and that person being ready to play in a game. Because of the way the Bills handled McGahee, we can't know when he would have actually been ready to suit up; they chose to keep him on the roster so that he could continue to rehab, but I would suggest that he wasn't ready to play, probably wasn't close, and wouldn't have been able to play even if they weren't being extra cautious with him. That's complete speculation on my part, but I don't think his 10+ months from injury to activation was the same as Gurley's 10+ months.   I still think even 10 months is ambitious for Smith. It could happen, I just wouldn't count on it. I think 8 months is way ridiculous.
    • Your draft flyer
      Parker Ehinger, OG, Cincinnati. IMO he is a top 100 player that just isn't getting the rave at the moment. I wouldn't doubt it if you hear his name in the upcoming weeks leading into the draft.
    • Team chemistry
      yah this is exactly the reason i was not thrilled about Irsay bringing back Pags and Grigs together because clearly they have had there differences in the past and dont always see eye to eye, and this could be a lingering issue. It does seem like Irsay has implemented some new standards and im sure there are some rules that have been established between the two of them that we didnt hear about. Im hoping with these new contracts is kind of like a clean slate for both parties and they develop some cohesiveness and bring home a couple superbowls because not many teams have the luxury of being set at QB.

      Let's look at Todd Gurley.  He was hurt Nov 15, 2014 and made the field Sept. 27, 2015.  316 days, no reported setbacks.  If Jaylon makes it back about the same recovery time frame from his injury, he will hit the field November 20, 2016.  319 days.  Week 11 in 2016 schedule.  McGahee was activated week 10 in 2003.  They just didn't suit him up and risk bringing him along too quick.  They kept him active in practice, no games.  My point is if one claims someones injury was a lot worse, they need to back it with supporting evidence.  My research tends to refute that claim.   But we don't know if Smith can rehab quicker, slower, or the same as Gurley.  It is unknown.  And Gurley had a clean ACL only injury, which some people would says was less serious than Jaylon Smith's injury.  It's a risk for certain.
