How the Colts' trick play went wrong and why it could have worked
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Sports
Seriously the single most baffling play I have ever seen called in the NFL. What was SUPPOSED to happen...
The wheel whale route?! Seriously, you wouldn't do this in college.
Seriously wtf are these two guys doing?
Pat McAfee isn't decoying hard enough.
To sell this play, punter Pat McAfee has to do a bit of acting. He needs to pantomime some practice punts and talk loudly to the lineman snapping the ball, saying something like "HEY I KNOW THIS DIAGONAL SNAP TO ME IS REALLY HARD BUT I BELIEVE IN YOU AND I PROMISE TO KICK THE BALL SO DANG GOOD." Ideally, when the ball is snapped -- not to him, mind you -- he takes off the shoe on his plant foot and punts that. Make them throw the flag, if that's even a penalty.
