Default Prater is clutch

I didn't realize he's never missed a kick in the 4th quarter. He's 22-22 in the fourth quarter and overtime in his career.

Looks like Prater's been hanging out with Tebow.

He's good with the ladies, too. Just wait a minute for him in the hotel lobby, and he'll be down to tell you all about it.

I still don't trust him. He's got a great leg but there is always so much movement on his kicks. He makes me nervous. I think his career % is better than Elam's as well, so it doesn't seem logical.

They commented on the last kick that there was no wind worth mentioning that day.

Every kicker misses 40+ yarders. They weren't chip shots or anything.

You mean the fact that you don't trust him? I agree, that doesn't seem logical.

Now are you starting to see why I don't trust him? The guy is looking more and more like a liability. He's been flat out shanking kicks lately. Not good and we could do much better.

Yeah, a gimme. Just like the one in Oakland. He's lucky it didn't come back to bite us in the arse.

He's missed more kicks this year than I'm comfortable with. His confidence seems a little shaken.

He's missed four of his last eight. He needs to figure it out quick.

I like how he is so good everywhere other than 40-49 yard kicks. 50+? No problem!
