Pat McAfee Reacts To ESPN Analyst Saying Kickers Aren't Football PlayersJun 11, 2021
How are you doing, rc bro? I'm doing good man, you know, I have to talk about people who wear
footballuniforms. I don't really play
footballright now this morning, but I yelled at one of my favorite people, who is it. as part of that group, you could actually say uh, he's kind of a brand ambassador, yeah, yeah, oh, you know, um, yeah, I'm just
sayingyeah, and uh, this guy, this guy is athletic, uh, he wore wrist guards, I even think at one point, gloves. glove um thank you yeah, a glove and then you know, he was very similar to his outfit, he was almost a football player, also he, he, he, he, he was very close, uh, if they ever had one, If they ever had one, I would have done it. been the guy, so I had to talk about it this morning, okay, I appreciate the compliment, obviously, and I was a little torn, okay, because you told a half-truth, you know you said incredibly good things about me and, by the way, as soon as it happens that my Twitter account is loaded with that, I mean, that's as soon as it happens every time something is kicked, well, uh, cleared, well, a punter puts in a kicker, it messes up my line of time loads and then when there's slander on
espnit happens right away so I heard that thing literally, although I wasn't looking at the time, I was in my car driving to the office, uh, and when I came to a stoplight at red and they stopped me, I obviously heard it almost as soon as it came out. out of your mouth and I heard it like twice, okay, and then the guys sent it to the group text, obviously it goes through the group text and now there's a lot of reaction, I'm like I don't know what to do here. because okay, I'll have to agree with you in this particular case that the specialists are not football
playersbetween the ears.
Okay, I think our brain and our mentality towards the game cannot be that of football
playersbecause we are not reactionary. It's not something you can achieve, it's more like a golfer, a pitcher, something like that. I would say that the mentality of a kicker cannot be that of a football player, you probably won't be a good kicker and punter for long. Enough because it's a very different mentality, uh, but let me ask you a couple of questions, Ryan Clark, should we hmm, let's do this, Ryan, have you ever tackled someone on a football field? Yeah, okay, that's a part of football.

Okay, there you go, yeah, so no. no no no no no no okay, this goes even though you had your moment in the sun and the world leader you are going to stop all your friends in the background yes sir, okay, next question here, have you run with a ball of soccer? In an NFL game, were you in a hurry, did you, had, had an interception where I ran with the football, are you asking? Was it calculated as a rush in the statistics? Yes, as a rush, no, no, oh, that's weird, have you? you threw a pass in the nfl, i didn't, oh, that's very interesting, this is very, you scored in an nfl game, i didn't actually, oh, well, wow, well, you see there's a lot of things that I think they make up a soccer game.
You know what I mean, like attacking, running, passing, kicking, blocking, I mean, there's a lot of things there, I've done them all, I've done every single one of them, you've done what two of the seven, probably, who is more of a soccer player. Who is more of a soccer player? Ryan Clark, the person who doesn't have to write a list to show people that he's a football player, that's easy, I agree, hey, listen, that was a hard thing to defend, it really is especially going against. I've always said this as if Greeny intervened and I love Greeny.
Everyone knows I love Grandma, but if Greenie had stepped in and said, "Oh yeah, you're right, he's not a footballer." I've been like, "Hey grandma, hey, shut up, okay, but guys who have guys who have played in the NFL, I mean, I think I'm self-aware enough to know that what we do is a lot less stressful and much less physically." Mentally demanding demanding all of that, so every time an NFL player comes out and says, well, he's not a football player, I say, well, yeah, he has every right in the world to say that, but every time a high school hero says that, I say uh, your high school, but I would have played your position any other position, but you know what's crazy, but honestly, you know when you start doing those things, you just get to work, especially what I'm doing, like explaining your tweets well.

Make money now, pat on this, work day, training day, yeah, it's work day, trading day, yeah, and that was the day I clicked and thought, you know these guys aren't like us ? You know what I am
saying? Right now I'm stressed because I have to deal with Adrian Peterson and Troy sitting here talking like, bro, you're going to cut him off or maybe like you know we could put him in brackets every time we get close to him or listen, you come down. I'll come up like we're having this conversation and you're telling me if Pfizer is going to have the right vaccine, you know what I'm saying and, bro, I was a hot dog and because it was that moment, I was like, you know what?
Yeah, these guys, by the way, I can understand that and that's why I said everything I just said about NFL guys, if they said I'm not a football player, I understand it because that happens and if he I said you should buy Fizer. stock, it was a good decision because you probably could have come out pretty low and that thing is only going to go up at this point. I used to have cornhole in the locker room, right, we had cornhole in the locker room and how much movie can you? I literally can't how much movie I can watch.
How many repetitions can I have? So guys, would you have a 10-minute meeting or a 10-minute break from your meeting or whatever and I realized it was a bad meeting that you just walked out of? Like everything went really bad there and I was there, I was like shooting like four in a row and I was like, here we go, here we go and then once I walked in, everyone was like, I hate you and I'm like wait, I just did five in a row. , we have a bit of he won't come back here and they'll yell at him, okay for the next 45 minutes, what are you going to do?
