Football fans everywhere are very aware that Pat McAfee is fire on the microphone. When he has a platform to speak, buckle up, because it is going to be pure entertainment.

This has always been the case for McAfee, even early in his career. This is shown after Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan got a personal foul for shoving McAfee following a blocked punt in the end zone.

First off, it’s hilarious to see McAfee with the long hair again. Secondly, it’s not at all surprising to see Finnegan try to get into his opponent’s head.

At this point in his career, McAfee was a young punter simply trying to stay in the league. If you have heard him talk about his early NFL years at all, you know McAfee was trying to learn the position at the same time as he was doing it on the biggest stage.

Following the blocked punt, Finnegan saw this as an opportunity to give the young punter some advice. He questioned why he would even punt the ball in that situation, telling him to just throw it and take the incompletion. I’m sure he had no hidden agendas with this advice. He definitely wasn’t trying to get a pick six.

McAfee saw through this as well, letting Finnegan know that he didn’t need his “wisdom.”
