  • Why was Prater instructed to kick off a short ball?

    Yes, Percy ran for a TD.

    BUT, why was he ever eligible for that kick?

    Da ****?

    Better yet, why didn't the rest of the team out there look like they knew he was doing that. The coverage was not there for that kickoff.

        I'm pretty sure Broncos were trying to do Fox's version of Sean Payton's onside kick to start the 2nd half.

            Because nothing we were going to do today was going to work.

            Not even the coin toss.

                Webster was there to make the play before Harvin started running.

                Not sure what the hell he was doing to not make the tackle.

                  Over ran Harvin...the play was designed for Broncos to recover the ball though.

                  Still doesn't explain the middle of the field wide open.

                    Do you think?

                    I've only seen something like that work when two guys run into each other or a big gust of wind comes up like in the 1998 AFCCG against the Jets.

                      The fact of the matter is that the coverage team gave up returns on practically every non touchback this year. This was the most easily predicted **** up in the game.

                        Because John Fox is a moron. Kick it out of he endzone if you don't want Harvin to touch it.

                          I'm positive, and I'm not sure they'll admit that. Just look at the placement of the kick. If they wanted to kick it away from Harvin, there are a million other safer and higher % ways of doing that.

                          On top of all that, Prater has the leg to kick it out the back anyways...

                              Maybe if his leg was good and loose from XP's and FG's like normal.



                              Yeah, I guess it could've been a long onside kick. Just a little too far.

                              The coverage seemed to stop for a second when Harvin corralled it then all hell broke loose.
