Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph was benched in favor of Devlin Hodges in Week 12 and, oh, boy, did Pat McAfee have some thoughts.
During a segment on ESPN's "Get Up," McAfee expressed that he thought benching Rudolph was the right move, but did so in a way that only McAfee can.
Some of the highlights include, McAfee insinuating Rudolph's play has been so bad that Steelers fans feel he should be suspended as long as Myles Garrett, and McAfee quacking like a duck on a live broadcast.
To McAfee's point, the Steelers' offense did look revitalized once Hodges took over. With Pittsburgh trailing the Cincinnati Bengals, 7-3, into the second half Mike Tomlin benched Rudolph, and Hodges led the team to a touchdown on his first drive. Pittsburgh would go on to win, 16-10, and the Steelers have now improved to 6-5.
Whether or not Rudolph's benching is a permanent move remains to be seen, but McAfee sure made his feelings on the matter abundantly clear.
