WATCH: Indianapolis Colts Punter Pat McAfee Kicks Soccer Ball 124 MPH

There is a reason why Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee's leg is nicknamed the Boomstick. It has nothing to do with his ability to lay out kick returners that are actually smaller than him (a few do exist). It's because when he kicks the ball he can really send it flying. His career average is right around 46 yards and his career long is 68 yards.He claims he can hit a field goal...

I like Vick Ballard. He seems like a nice guy, a player who will commit to the franchise, work hard and contribute to the community. Those kind of guys are valuable. But we have to stop talking about him.
