Pat McAfee has lofty goals--to beat Shane Lechler's record:
Guy was punting's gold standard while playing for the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders from 1973-86, but Lechler, also a Raider, is the man today. His 47.5-yard career average is 5 yards better than Guy's. It's the best in league history.
McAfee's 47.4-yard season average is a glimmer of light in a dismal Colts season but well short of Lechler's league-best 51.7. No matter. McAfee is launching more than punts. He has launched a mission: Be the best.

Controlled circumstances would be red-zone situations and the two-minute drill. It's a sign that Manning's neck fusion is coming along, but there's still no reason to be carrying Manning in re-draft leagues...
As the Colts move closer and closer to clinching the Andrew Luck sweepstakes, some have suggested that the Colts could trade Peyton Manning if they know they’ll be getting Luck-y. Not so fast, my friend. (Which is now officially Lee Corso’s second best catch phrase.) Peter King of Sports Illustrated reported during Football Night in…
Peter King of Sports Illustrated reports that the Colts can't trade quarterback Peyton Manning before his huge $28 million option bonus is due. The bonus is payable several days before the start of the 2012 league year, traditionally around March 1. Trades can't be made until the league year begins.
