Guy kicked his butt off and kept us in the game.

Beantown Bronco Stamp of Approval.

My adopt a bronco is quietly having an awesome year. There were a lot of haters late last year and all during this offseason. He has quieted them all.

2nd in league in kickoff distance.
3rd in league in touchbacks and touchback percentage.
2nd in league in field goals made.
85% conversion rate, with only 2 guys ahead of him in percentage that have attempted more 50+ yd kicks than him.

I was wrong about him when he missed few field goals initially during 6-0 span.
Prater is awesome. Hopefully, he continues to do well.

I almost created a props thread after his big kick yesterday, but didn't want to jinx anything in case he had to kick again.

Wish we could have given him the chance. He's been fantastic.

yep I will happily eat some crow also with this guy, I was hating on him big and he has been a very big bright spot for us all year

Pleasantly surprised indeed. As Matt Millen says 450 times a game during NFL Net broadcasts, 'well done!"

Prater has really turned into one helluva kicker. Had some rough spots but the guy is nails now

I bet he can punt further than berger to

2nd in league in kickoff distance.
3rd in league in touchbacks and touchback percentage.

The two things that he improved about our special teams.

Funny thing is, there were still people calling for his head at several times this season. Haters LOVE to hate.

Prater is not one of the team's problems.

Too bad the offense can't give him more extra point opportunities.

Prater has developed nicely. He's lost the oh my ****ing Gawd what am I doing out here look he had at times last season.

Now we need a punter.

I posted at some time that I would of rather seen the team start at one level and during the course of the year see improvement as a team. Well that didnt happen, but Prater is one example of a player who got better. It seems he's really driving thru the ball with full leg, whether 45 yarder or 25 yarder. Good on him, now to find a Punter.
