Rams punter Johnny Hekker roasts Skip Bayless after kicker criticism
Los Angeles Rams punter Johnny Hekker put FS1 personality Skip Bayless in place after the troll criticized kickers on Thursday night.
Bayless tweeted while watching the Bucs-Patriots game that “it is inconceivable” that kickers determine the outcome of NFL games. That’s a sentiment with which I agree, but Bayless took a low blow by calling kickers the “little guys.”
It is inconceivable to me that NFL games are won and often lost by little guys who don't play football: kickers. Insane. Wrong. Sad.

That didn’t sit well with the three-time All-Pro punter, who got personal with Bayless over the TV personality’s athletic history.

The personal attack from Hekker may have come across as strong, but then again when you have a troll attacking your entire profession, it’s hard not to come out swinging. Then again, Bayless should be used to being on the receiving end of this from a punter.
