If Kluwe wins because of his holding capabilities alone, I will be mildly upset.

I think King has shown he has the stronger leg and more importantly, he has shown he is also consistent. We have to go with the younger leg here. I like Kluwe, but he has no upside. Find someone else to hold punts if King isn't great at it.

+1

King continues to expand his game. He has gained consistency since last season. He now needs one more season of progression to get command of his directional kicks.

If no one is hurt, I'm going with King. More years ahead of him, cheaper, HUGE leg and will improve enough to make us have 3 HOF punters one day. Very Happy

It sounds like King will reign. Hopefully he can hold for the true King Jano

We should have had Alex Barron hold instead of King. Barron has a ton of experience at holding.
