Denver Broncos News

Broncos sign kicker Matt Prater to four-year contract | Denver Post
He was a kicker three NFL teams released before he arrived in Denver, so Matt Prater has lived the day-to-day, sometimes hour-to-hour, life that comes with the position in a league with little patience.

Little Known Broncos Facts: Opening Day (2000s & 2010s) | MHR
I have a feeling that most Broncos fans see the 2000s and the 2010s as something of a failed experiment for their beloved team — and may be seeing that decade (plus two seasons) through the filter of that awful 4-12-0 2010 season.

In approximately eleven weeks the 2012 NFL season will be upon us. Considering that it has been 5-1/2 months since the 2011 season came to an end in New England, we are well over the hump and on the very edge of another Bronco season.

    Like I’ve said before, I love this signing, and it needed to happen. Another great “blog” about it comes from D-Mac this morning. You can read it on MHR or 104.3’s website.
    He pointed out that Prater was responsible for 1/2 our wins last year… During the Tebow atarts, he kicked 4 game winning FGs (1 of which was after his 59 yarder against Chicago to push game into OT).
    I mean, the dude has ice in his veins. While I mirror others here when I say that I want him to kick way more PATs than FGs, we all know that an excellent FG kicker is used, cause some days, for some reason, things don’t always click. So when that happens, I’d much rather win a 13-10 game than lose that same game 7-10. That’s the importance of Prater. We only have 16 regular season games. That’s why they all are so important. That 1 game that we could have lost because our kicker wasn’t Prater could keep us from the playoffs. I think the front office knew this, so they were willing to pay him even more than they did, but as is all things business related, you try to save as much as you can so that you can spread it out to other areas.
    Good job boys, and…
