Phil B on the best parts of 2011

Phillip B. Wilson is writing a two-parter on the good and bad of this season.  You’re lucky that he’s starting with the positives:

* I would enjoy P Pat McAfee even if he didn’t do his job well, which he did. The team funny man was solid when it was time to be serious. He set a franchise record with a 46.6-yard punting average. He had 41 touchbacks on 60 kickoffs (68.3 percent), which is under his camp-stated goal of 80 percent, but still decent. And at least that gives him something to shoot for in 2012. Oh, and Mac had eight special-teams tackles. At least half of those probably saved TDs, maybe more.

There were some other highlights, which Phil nails, but I admit it was fun watching a punter tackle.  Pat did a great job this year.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
