Get Marquette King In here

Recommended Posts

I know it’s two games but he would be 2nd in the NFL In punting averaged based off his first two games in the XFL. I know there was talk last year that the bills were interested in from Adam Shefter but those reports were later denied. I’m sure he’s going to be a hot commodity this fall but he’s a lot better than the two options we have now.

Marquette Kong’s punting abilities in the NFL were never in question or denied. It was his Attitude that was the problem.

You don’t want a Diva Headache for a Punter after all.

Hopefully being out of the league has humbled him. He will be back in the league quickly as long as that happened.

Our guy finished strong.  No thank you.

I'd take a chance on a diva punter over a guy who can't punt over 30 yards anytime. thanks.

Fair enough. When you get your own team that preference should come into play at some point. Including the thought that those would be the only two options.

I can't remember any other punter who fans obsess over quite as much. 

He'd be the next Brian Moorman

Our punter is good for those inside the 20 kicks because he is very consistent at punting 30-35 yards, and nothing more.

 

I would definitely give King a look.

Guys, I was skeptical after that Pats debacle, but he made up for it the rest of the year.  Why so many people state 30 yds avg. is not accurate.


Yr.                   Long.              Avg.                  Inside the 20

2018.              67 yds.           41.9 yds.          34

2019.              60 yds.           45.1 yds.          22

Career.           67 yds.            43.1 yds.          56

 

Those are decent numbers.  Taking on a problem is not worth it.

There are few positions that you bring in a diva player for punter is not it. Bojo was average or better for the second half of the year.

Cory Bojorquez had a decent year, actually. You just remember the couple of boners all punters have.

Corey Bojorquez stinks and at some really bad times too.  Yes he got better but dang he punted enough - he should.  

 

I think over the years - similar to a Sabres goalie discussion I had with a friend - we've had pretty darn good kicking for most of my viewing life (I'm 45).  I know what good kicking looks like and that's not it.

Have you checked the actual stats or making things up?

I believe that the Bills are a title contender this year. They aren’t the favorite but they one of the 10 teams(ish) that can actually win it all if things go right. This is the time that you take some chances. King may be an idiot but he’s elite. You hope that he was humbled being out of the league but you DO NOT pass on superior talent at this point. That’s what you need to get over the top.

No thanks i think he could be voted to the All Jack Ass team along with AB & Leveon ! He is not a player that i see McD even considering after he reads anything about his time on those teams . A punter that gets a 15 yd penalty i never heard of such a thing .

 

Being hyped to do your job is one thing being stupid & causing your team to lose field position because of it is another, besides he has more than likely signed a contract with the XFL & has to honor it to the end of it .

Adding +2 YPP to the Bills isn't worth the risk.

I always wondered why you just don't use a 7th round pick on the best punter in college.  Hes going to be on the field more than the guy you are likely going to send to the practice squad.

What risk? Bojorquez was 33rd (keep in mind 4 of these guys didn’t have a lot of punts) in average yards: https://www.foxsports.com/nfl/stats?season=2019&week=100&category=PUNTING Marquette King’s career average in 46.7 yards. 
 

If the Bills are going to play tight games field position and turnovers are important. King is clearly the best available punter. This is the time to start pushing your chips in. If you are worried about a punter damaging your locker room, your locker room has problems.

He was a disaster in the punting room.  Single-handedly tore that unit apart!

 

Seriously, how much damage can a punter do?  Two 15-yarders back in 2017?  What am I missing?

You don't want a great punter because you don't like his attitude? Seriously? It's not like he's Charles Manson's evil twin or anything. Give him a week or 2 in this environment and he'll be fine.

I was thinking about making this thread. That said, I'm sure the folks at OBD have considered bringing him in. He is simply too talented not to give another chance to. How have his antics in the XFL been?
