Pat McAfee was asked about the Butt Punt and he delivered an epic answer.
The Colts punter-turned-media star joined ESPN’s “Manningcast” with Eli and Peyton Manning during the Giants-Cowboys “Monday Night Football” game when he was asked about Dolphins punter Thomas Morstead’s viral punt during the team’s 21-19 win over the Bills on Sunday.
“The thing about it is this was a backed-up punt, so we’re talking a short amount of space for Thomas Morstead to get this punt off,” McAfee said. “All because he backs up, the personal protector, he’s supposed go forward, and instead, cheeks get clapped by a football in the end zone, in Miami, in 155 degree weather.
“But what a nightmare punt situation,” McAfee said. “They somehow still win. What a wild day to be a Dolphin fan for sure.”

When asked if Morstead should be catching some flack for his punt, McAfee took up for him.
“It was [Sherfield’s fault],” McAfee said. “You can’t back up there. You can’t back up in that backed up situation. You’ve got to push forward… He was basically running his ass into that ball at the same time. Obviously, it’s not good, for anybody.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
