A Punter Can Make a Difference.
Word came from camp on Thursday that King dropped a 67-yard punt out-of-bounds at the six yard line. Fans at practice have been entertained by new Denver punter Marquette King.
Through the Phog
King spent the previous six seasons with the Oakland Raiders and has a bit of a chip on his shoulder regarding his unceremonious end in the Bay Area. Perhaps the most unique punter the league has known, King’s personality can be as influential as his booming kicks.
The Broncos and their fans have firsthand experience with the ways King can get under your skin. His knack for following big kicks with dances and theatrics is well-known.
What he’s shown so far in camp and what’s intriguing about King is the astronomical statistics he may be looking at with eight games at altitude. Like 65-yard average statistics. King certainly has the leg and the drive. It will be fun to see how King, coupled with the pass-rush and improved offense further the Broncos intimidation factor.
Something none of us are talking too much about, this team is going to be nasty.
