Colquitt vs. Colquitt Coming In Chiefs, Broncos Game

colquitt

Last year we nearly saw a Colquitt vs. Colquitt matchup in an NFL game. The Kansas City Chiefs were set to play the Denver Broncos in Week 17 last year. The week of the game, Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels signed P Dustin Colquitt's younger brother, Britton, from the practice squad to the active roster. A team doesn't usually carry two punters so I took that as an indication that Colquitt could be playing making it a Colquitt vs. Colquitt affair.

It didn't happen. Britton Colquitt was listed as inactive and did not play in the game. But it looks like this time around it actually will be Colquitt vs. Colquitt. One thing I did not realize (before our connections post) is how far back the Haleys go with the Colquitts.

Here's a snippet from the Chiefs game release:

The elder Colquitt was drafted in the third round of the '78 NFL Draft by Dick Haley, who served as the Director of Player Personnel of the Steelers for 20 seasons ('71-90) and is the father of Chiefs Head Coach Todd Haley. The younger Haley worked in many capacities for the Steelers. His many duties included fielding punts from Craig Colquitt in pregame warm-ups.

The NFL really is a small world.

By the way, Dustin and Britton have the same net average this year. Dustin leads with 14 punts inside the 20 to Britton's 11.
