Quote:
The NFL has named kicker Matt Prater the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after the sixth-year kicker connected on all three field goal attempts and all four extra point tries in Denver’s 37-6 win vs. Oakland.

In addition, Prater produced touchbacks on all eight kickoffs to represent the second-most in the NFL in a single game since at least 1994, and he is the only player during that span with a perfect touchback percentage on eight kickoffs or more.

We are lucky to have him, nothing like having a clutch kicker who can kick for distance.

We should never do a fake FG at home ever again. I want to see Prater hit a 65+ kick in a game one day.

He is a worthy heir, to Jason Elam. That's the highest compliment I can give him...

He would have EASILY last year vs. Chicago on the game-tieing FG from 59 yards. That would have been good from almost 70! He BLASTED that one.

Not to take anything away from Prater, but what about Colquitt? If he has a game like last Sunday every week we're a real threat to run the table from here on out.

Yup. 27 for 28 in his career in the fourth quarter. If that isn't clutch, nothing is. ONE friggin' miss.

As much as I like Colquitt I would be happy with more games like the Raider game where the only time he is on the field is as a holder for Prater

All his kicks from over 50 look like they could have been good from another 15-20 yards. I want him to set the record for distance but I want it done at sea level. That way no one can gripe about Denver advantage

I don't get the big deal about the fake kick. You have to give future teams something to think about.

it was a horrible call that wound up not mattering. If youre planning on going for it on a 4th and one, use your hall of fame Qb...not a kicker dropping back 10 yards and chucking it deep to a left tackle

That's right as long as he makes his kicks the rest is trivial.
