ESPN’s Booger McFarland has taken his otherworldly talents to ABC for Saturday afternoon’s epic AFC Wildcard game between the Buffalo Bills and Houston Texans.
Like we’ve seen all season, it has not gone swimmingly for Mr. McFarland. Late in the fourth quarter with Buffalo setting up for a game-tying field goal, the broadcaster indicated the team should run the ball on third down and spike it one play later.
See a problem with this analysis? If Buffalo spiked the ball on fourth down, it would have been a turnover on downs — resulting in a Texans win.
Basic math. It’s something we’d expect from an LSU grad and on-air ESPN personality.
Obviously, the football world blasted Booger for this foolish attempt to analyze a football game.
