That is awesome! The 44 Schianos one is worth some time too.

So this is what Robo-Punter actually looks like. Perhaps the coolest thing that a punter ever did happened at halftime of that game. http://www.indystar.com/article/20131110/SPORTS03/311100062/Colts-notes-...

That was epic. Strangely, McAfee pointed out how unathletic he is (by comparison to his teammates) after his giant tackle. Clearly the man underestimates himself.

I guess there's no way for Madden to work in the drunk 3 a.m. winter canal swimming episode?

I've hardly played any madden that came out after 08 and I'm happy to see they manage to crank out another broken game year after year.

Awesome job with McAfee. That's a whole lot of fun. I like the gifs a lot.

On a related note, I see you made a team out of Johnsons.
I did that too in my franchise, but there weren't enough so I added all the Browns. To the Browns.

I see that this kind of sublime performance by a punter was only a temporary gift from the football gods, as he is absorbed back into the gridiron at the end of the game.
