It has indeed been a tumultuous week for “The Pat McAfee Show.” On Tuesday’s episode, New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers hinted at Jimmy Kimmel’s potential involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein case. Then, on Friday, Pat McAfee accused Norby Williamson, ESPN’s head of event and studio production, of trying to undermine his show.
Amidst all the drama, NFL fans have found humor in questioning A.J. Hawk’s role on McAfee’s show. While McAfee and Rodgers express their opinions loudly, Hawk is often seen on camera, enjoying a cigar and laughing at the banter.
Despite contributing his opinions as the co-host of the show, fans have playfully commented on Hawk’s role. One person remarked, “He smokes cigars and talks about Ohio,” while another said, “Everyone dunking on Hawk, but if I were him and Rodgers kept coming on saying dumber and dumber shit? Yeah, I’d hide in the background and keep getting paid too.”
“He’s the most toxic person on the show,” noted a third person. Hawk has yet to respond to these tweets, and there is no obligation for him to do so.
McAfee and Hawk are scheduled to return on air Monday afternoon to recap Week 18 of the NFL season. For those who watch the full show, Hawk’s contributions are evident, providing a unique element to the dynamic.
