Colts Punter Pat McAfee Trolls Skip Bayless on Twitter
When FOX Sports loudmouth, Skip Bayless took to Twitter Sunday night to bash NFL kickers after missed field goal attempts by both the Cardinals and Seahawks kickers, Colts punter, Pat McAfee couldn’t let it slide. He had to defend his people.
It began with Bayless being Bayless (read: saying something outlandish to get attention).
I despise field-goal kicking. Great athletes fight their guts out for 4 quarters and overtime and 2 nonfootball-player kickers blow it.

If I may play devil’s advocate for a moment, he’s not entirely wrong. Both kickers had opportunities to win the game for their team with what amounted to chip-shot field goal attempts. Both were shorter than the now 33-yard point after attempt, and both were badly missed.
Enter McAfee who took it upon himself to stand up for kickers everywhere by dropping a verbal “boomstick” on Bayless by generalizing television personalities in the same way Bayless generalized all kickers.
But, my brother.. All of us pro ball kickers LOVE old men who get on TV & act like douchebags while wearing makeup.. Let’s hug it out. https://t.co/4pe9AUMs7U
