^ he was slow in preseason,teams werent putting a whole lot of emphasis on getting to punts and he had several close calls that he didnt adjust his motion to,He is very focused on his form.he needs to realize that getting the kick off is more important then getting wows.
Not even close.
How many pro bowls has King been too?
As a fan, I say keep Lechler.
If King's as good as yall say he is, we won't have trouble getting something for him.

^^^We're in rebuilding mode. Not spend money on veteran punter mode. Lechler prevents us from getting better. We've identified talent, let expensive, polished players like Lechler go.
My man Ike got a bad rap
He wouldnt have stayed on the roster if we didn't plan on making the change this year. I just hope they teach this punter how to angle them long punts towards the sidelines. Lechler never did and we gave up long returns becasue of that.

RM & DA are looking for football players, kickers need not apply!!!! The days of Al writing the big check are gone!
I was watching this video (played fine for me) and i had read King was a lefty, my bad. still don't think we pay a punter, we can have King & a couple LB's for Lech's pay.
PS, Otto and Guy are my all time favorite Raiders, before all the "kickers aren't players" people chime in.
What is Lechler's contract situation? I remember when Stan Talley replaced Ray Guy, it left a lot to be desired. King is getting a lot of raves for not yet having punted in the NFL regular season.
