    Merged: Say NO to Matt Prater!!!!!!!!

    Oh my freaking god... if we sign this guy I will kill someone!! He is a kicker from UCF... and he might be the single worst kicker I have ever seen play. You guys might remember him... he is the guy that missed the EXTRA FREAKIN POINT in double overtime in UCF's bowl game last year. And that isnt even close to the first time he has choked BADLY... or even the first time he has missed a crutial extra point at the end of a game.

    Apparently we recently worked him out. The guy is HORRIBLE!! Trust me... Say NO to Matt Prater!!!!

    Trust me... that is no message. If I was Mare, I would have laughed in Saban's face if he "threatened" me with Matt freakin Prater...

    You are correct Prater has had some big misses...Ohio game comes to mind and Nevada..but he has a very strong leg and is exceptional on kickoffs. His misses come in bunches, he is very streaky. He is worth bringing to camp in 07 to see if he has gained any consistency IMHO.....anyway I doubt he will be on any roster this year and is more of an evaluation that an actual threat to Mare....

    We work out guys all the time regardless of whether or not there's a need at a position.

    Edinger is the guy you keep an eye on, though.

    Or Illinois... where he missed an extra point to tie the game up at the end. Ya, he has a powerful leg for kickoffs, but who cares? So does Mare...

    I am sorry, but I have a VERY strong hatred for this guy... and would cry if he ever made it into a Fins uniform.

    knowing Saban...im sorry, but he'll probably end up choosing Prater over Edinger. Just like he chose Hodge/Newman over Arrington...Allen/Hill over Clements. Culpepper over Brees.

    Saban seems to think he can turn somewhat mediocre players, into pro-bowlers...but he cant. obviously.

    Not taking Brees was all about the $. We just couldnt afford that. Same with Arrington. Plus, the guy has never been able to stay healthy... and now he is on IR again.

    And are you talking about Nate Clements? We would have had to trade for him from a division rival... and he sucks. Even Bills fans hate him... so I'm not sure what you are talking about.

    I would be SO pissed. How many easy and clutch kicks did he miss for UCF. I think there might be a reason that he hasnt started anywhere since college. Dont even waste time evaluating this guy.

    The Giants fans hated Allen....so?
