Thank you Pat McAfee


Recommended Posts

Thanks Pat! You started out a little rough around the edges. You often out kicked your coverage and didn't utilize the boundaries to your advantage but as the years went along you learned your craft and got better....til you reached the pinnacle the last couple years. We are going to miss you. Good luck in all your endevours.

 

Hopefully you grow in your new craft as you did with us. I'd say you got a long way to go in being as successful at comedy as you were at kicking but with the hard work and perserverance you can achieve it too! Good luck!

He will lose 2.8 million and may have to give back 400,000 in his signing bonus, Now three knee surgeries is a lot and knee pain can be havoc but if he retired to be funny  he should wait and get his monies then spend the rest of his young life being funny.

I'm really going to miss the Boomstick also known as Patty Mac. He was one of my favorites on this team.  Loved his sense of humor and comical brand of on the field swag.  In my opinion, he was the best punter in the league.  I wish him the best as he pursues the desires of his heart.

It never ceases to amaze me to see others who think they know what is best for someone else.

thank you pat

 

for retiring.  so we don't have to listen to your garbage anymore

Yes.  Such a garbage guy.  He gave much of his time and money to the community, including our veterans, but I'm so glad that the Colts team is free of a bum like him.  (SARCASM).

You will go down as a Colt, never wearing another teams uniform. A Colt for life.

 

Reading through the retirement articles, we are asked about our favorite Pat McAfee moment.

 

The first thought was the pitching wedge, because almost nothing feels better than dropping a ball a foot from the hole from fifty yards out.

 

The second thought was watching you lay out the Denver return man on the sideline. You decleated him, and stoled his man pride. Although that may have been the first time most NFL fans watched you make a great tackle, it wasn't the first for Colts fans. To us, you had made bloody noses cool long before J.J. Watt did.

 

Thank you for being our punter and changing the way we think about the position. I sure wouldn't want to be the person filling those shoes.

 

It's an awesome thought, knowing you will always be an ambassador for the Colts. I look forward to Pat McAfee chapter II.

 

Your fan,

BlueShoe

As others have pointed out, he's set to earn just as much with batstool, but I'm sure a guy as successful as Pat is appreciative of your financial and career advice!

I's called an "opinion" if you look close enough you will see several of them.

 

Let me help you out, cause it is needed.

 

A much better "opinion" would have been, "man, if that was me, I would wait have played out my contract and then gone to do the funny guy thing since I would still be a young man."

Glad to see your concern for Pat's financial situation extends to others on the forum, myself included...

I'll try to keep those typos to a minimum for you.

Yes, please do that but not for me rather, for you Bucky.

    • At Houston's age there is also a good chance he won't be able to achieve his numbers from last year.  I would rather sign Clowney given the choice.  I think there is a good chance Houston signs elsewhere too.  You notice no players are clamoring for his return like they were for TY and Rhodes.  It might come down to plan C for Ballard. 
    • Wow.....   Kiper just had us picking Cosmi with our pick in round 2.......   Cosmi seems to have dropped a bit at least with the talking heads.......  The "better" talking heads do have contacts with at least some of the pro scouts   I wonder if there is something hidden on the guy......      
    • Welp, at minimum, you'll know their grade. And you can read up on anyone you might target on NFL.com prospect tracker if you feel like researching a bit. They have profiles for pretty much every top 300+ kid.
    • Agree that he would likely have been cut last year - whether he would have wound up on our PS or getting picked up elsewhere, I don't know for sure.     As we saw last year, the D 'Flus is running very rarely is a true 4-3 with 4 DL, 3 LBs, 4 DBs - instead, we're using 4 DL and more often 2 LBs with 5 DBs (or less often 1 LB and 6 DBs).   My guess with Ballard not making much effort going after A-Walker is that we'll typically see Leonard and Okereke in 2 LB situations and that they've got confidence in Speed to use him in 3 LB situations.  If not, Franklin (though he had the most ST snaps on the team) is pretty adequate at LBer if needed as a backup.  Adams and Glasgow were used entirely on STs last year and I get the feeling Glasgow sort of carved out a niche for himself as a STer moving forward (i.e., unless drastic emergency, we won't see him on the field as a LBer but he'll be likely to keep a roster spot).     I won't be shocked to see Ballard pick up a LB in the draft or bring in some UDFAs to battle for roster spots.  Heck, I won't be shocked to see him bring in a vet FA if the price is right.  It appears we should be set at LB, though Leonard has missed a game or more to injury each of his 3 years and Oke didn't seem to show much improvement between year 1 and 2.     As I see it now, without any significant additions, Skai has a legit shot to beat out Adams since he probably fits the mold on what we're trying to do on D a bit more and Adams was used entirely as a ST guy last year (i.e., Moore basically needs to outcompete Adams for ST reps or be near him with a bit more upside as a back-up defender).     I still rank OT, Edge, TE, WR as clear needs over LB.  Not as clear, but I have secondary as a bigger need than LB right now, too -- so I won't be shocked if we address the LB position in the draft, but agree that having Moore back gives us the option to go towards one of those positions instead of LB if the BPA is pretty close between a LBer and an aforementioned position.   One thing that'll be interesting to me is how Ballard and the coaching staff treat the guys who opted out.  Obviously we have no idea how conversations went with those players who opted out, and I don't know all their motivations for doing so (I believe Tell had a sick grandmother or something like that)... but I know Ballard doesn't like guys who he thinks opt not to play for their own benefit over that of the team (e.g., saying Ebron quit on the team with a minor ankle injury that Ebron elected to get season ending surgery on instead of toughing out the last 5-6 games two seasons ago).  If Ballard believes (as you somewhat eluded to) that Moore opted out rather than getting cut, I can see Moore being let go pretty early -- if Moore gave Ballard a legit reason to opt out, I hope Moore has kept himself in shape and is ready to ball out, as he seemed like a very solid playmaker at S. Carolina during his college years.       Ballard and Flus both said last year that Speed is as physically gifted as any LB on our roster.  I think it was known he was a project since being drafted -- coming from a small school with limited LB experience (he was a QB in HS, converted to WR as a freshman at Tarleton State, then from WR to DE and eventually DE to LB).  He made a few big time plays on STs last year and in his limited action at LB, he looked fine to me (hard to judge, as most of his LB action was in garbage time).  My gut tells me the coaching staff has seen enough of him that they're pretty confident in what he can do at LB and I'm excited for it -- TBH, just athletically with him, Leonard and Oke we have to have one of the more purely athletic group of LBs in the league (e.g., what we may lose a pure FB player in AW, we probably make up for with Speed's pure athletic ability).     In terms of Tell, I am excited for him.  He seemed to do well in his chances as a rookie and it's impossible to say, but my guess is with some of Ya-Sin's struggles last year, we may have seen Tell take over the CB2 role across from Rhodes by the mid-point of last season.  That said, I'm not giving up on Ya-Sin - I think he'll improve and will be a solid player, especially if we can generate a bit more pass rush.  I know one thing Ballard liked about Tell from day 1 was his ability to play CB or S if need be giving his size, range and athleticism.  Personally, I like Blackmon more as a SS than FS and don't dislike the idea of Tell lining up at FS, Blackmon as SS and Willis lining up in the box against TEs.
