It has really been a banner week for kickers taking pictures of their quarterback's locker and then posting that picture on Twitter. On Saturday, Colts punter Pat McAfee tweeted out a picture of Andrew Luck's locker. The weird part was that Luck was still at his locker and he wasn't wearing any clothes.
