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.

      How's that? He dominated. He was on 6 Championships teams and won one on a Bucks team where he was the main option way before he teamed up with Magic. He also has won the most League MVP's with 6 and is the all-time leading scorer in NBA history. He even played against 7'0 footers nightly by playing in the 80's unlike Wilt or Russell so he even has that. I would be curious to hear what 5 Centers you have over him? Hakeem wasn't better either, he didn't have near the career Kareem had. Shaq didn't either. I rank Kareem #1 as far as Centers.
    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      It depends on our offense.  If it takes off and starts to give us leads early, I think this defense will play inspired and will be in the top half.

      Hello my Name is Robin. And i'm from Denmark. even though i've been member on this forum for a long time, and the old one as well. I would like to Introduce myself. I became a Colts fan in 2007, when I watched my first NFL game. My brother introduced me to NFL, the superbowl between Colts & Bears, And as we all know the Bears scored first, so I had to rude for the "underdogs".. and from that day on I was hooked. I've watched every game since, even the primetime games, that starts 2:30 in Denmark, it's a long day working with no sleep but damn its worth it. Can't wait for my next big Colts adventure, when I get to see them playing in London

      Fair enough. As to Jabbar I'm not even sure I'd put him as one of my top 5 Centers all time
    • Defensive expectation for Indy in 2016
      If this defense finishes mid-pack. .. like the 13th - 18th range. I think it'll have done pretty well. The lack of depth at pass rusher and CB have me very very worried.

      I have been a fan since 1984 when I became an early teen and really started to understand the game. Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984 and eventhough we stunk for a while, things obviously got better. We traded for Dickerson in 1987 and won the Division, then we had Harbaugh's magical season in 1995, the Peyton ERA where winning 12 games was a piece of cake + winning a SB in 2006, now the Andrew ERA where we have already had 3 11 win seasons and a deep Playoff run.
