Prater: keep him on the field (but off the roads).

You put Praterís name up big deal if he can't make the kicks he had make today he doesn't belong in the NFL. Tebow was the story today, after the D had keep them close for him the last the 4 games this time he deserves full credit for making the big plays to make this win happen. Total team win I understand but I love how immediately the doubters and haters out there want to run interference and minimize how well he played today.

Leave it to Popps to put up a Kicker thread after the best game Tebow has played as a Pro and the worst defensive effort by the D in this win streak.

Prater is better than most and thankfully coming through when they seem to need him in the end of games.

I just don't place all that much at the door of Prater, these are kicks that any Kicker with any leg should make. Thankfully he made them, that's about all he deserves.

Prater also made a 46 yarder to tie the game, which is a distance he has struggled with in the past. He deserves credit, as well as many players today.

He's got some guns on him, and he's got money. I'm sure he's doing just fine... I mean ditching a stripper in a hotel lobby is pretty badass.

Prater was great, and special teams did great today aside from the Willis **** up. Cosby had a couple nice returns and almost took one to the house.

He's a good kicker. I think that's the point. He misses some longer ones here and there, but he's pretty much automatic when kicking under 40 yards.

Prater was huge today. Just as critical was the kickoff he made after the game tying FG that didn't give Harvin an opportunity to return. That was huge.

Ignore Mojoke. He thinks all the credit goes to Tebow and we can't talk about anyone else contributing to this win.

Probably because he has made that his schtick since idiots around here keep giving him attention for it and continue this "hate Tebow fans" as the team is winning. Goodness, someone doing that makes people stay up at night worrying someone only wants to give Tebow credit? Who cares? Ignore that crap and be happy the team is winning for a change. I can't believe people get so worked up for stupid crap.

I give cred for the whole team for the win today, but Kickers are suppose to make kicks like these he don't deserve some special attaboy for making kicks any good NFL Kicker can make. The men fighting it out on the field today won the game. He came and for a couple plays and did the job expected of him. End of story.

But please let's make Prater the big story, like it not the big story was Tebow making the critical throws today. Something all the haters said he had yet to do, Willis, Thomas and the OL played great today also. Tebow had 3 rushing attempts and over 200 yards of timely passing yards and the TD passes, so excuse if I don't get all excited about a Kicker.

Prater deserves some props. He should make the 46 yarder but that is no gimmie with the game on the line. Nice kick off to neutralize harvin to. Lots of credit to go around. Lots of guys stepped up and made plays today
