    Is this meant to be a douchey smartass comment or. . . ?


    A satirical yet pointed comment on the standard lately by which people lately express views without much in the way of depth or thought.

    Nothing personal.



    But did the response really add or bring anything else to the table expect for a hint of smart assness? How do we expect new posters to feel comfortable starting a thread when thats the kind of response they get? I would hope that this place could be better then that.

    To the OP - I have been having a major man crush on Tate since the begining of the year and the relationship he is developing with Wilson seems like a good one. Hopefully we keep him around and he continues to make plays with or without the ball in his hands.

  • LOL. No big on the comment, I didn't take it personally. This board has just been gushing with positive posts since I joined up and that was the first time I detected smartassery and given that the poster is obviously an active part of the forum I was just curious if they actually read the post or just assumed it was an ILOVEGOLDEN post.

    Side note, I was at one of the games, can't remember which...might have been Patriots..anyways I was down buying something from the team shop, and these girls were behind me and they all had "elite" looking tate jerseys on, and I was like "Dang where'd you get those I haven't seen any tate jerseys yet" and one girl was like "My boyfriend gave them to me" and I said "oh, does he know golden tate?" at this point it sunk in but she said "He is Golden Tate".

    Needless to say she was hideous...

  • Tate has special feet. He is like a ballet dancer. I really hope he is around for a long time.

  • Golden Tate's contributions come primarily through three avenues: epic YAC, great luck with jump balls this year, and Russell Wilson balling out of his mind and giving Tate (and everyone else) all week to get open downfield. Bevell has done a great job of scheming him into the offense, and of course he's won two games for us this year with his red-zone shenanigans. And I love the screen plays, even if we haven't used them since Minnesota. But I don't see a whole lot of "chemistry" with Wilson, exactly, other than the way Wilson can pretty much bust any WR open by making the secondary cover them for 18 seconds while he runs around breaking Ahmad Brooks' ankles.

    I agree. Tate does pretty well on jump balls, and as was said before the season started, Wilson likes to throw receivers open. Meaning, he likes to throw high, low, and/or make receivers really stretch for the ball.

    And Tate's YAC is a thing of beauty.

  • Someone needs to make a highlight reel of him for this season when it's over. He's been really fun to watch this year.

  • I have really been dissapointed with Tate. I was more up on Butler and Baldwin. But this year he's show a different level of, I don't know how to put it, intensity maybe? He seems to finally be "all-in."

  • He is like Branch to Brady. I just hope the team doesnt screw him around like the Pats have been to Branch for the last couple years.

    So, you never get annoyed with having to sift thru a bunch of non related blather after clicking on an interesting subject?
    There are other forums here on .NET that covers stuffing that's unrelated to the Seahawks.

  • Tate had two game-saving plays in the week 17 Rams game. First, recovering BeastMode's fumble; second, a very impressive play, breaking up a sure pick by a Rams DB. Neither really showed on the stat sheet, but that's at least 2 games where Tate's remarkable individual plays made a direct difference in getting a W instead of an L.

  • Man these players gotta start using their celebrity platform to lure in some better looking women... Some of these ladies don't look satisfactory for people not making 500k + playing a game. Should rollin with dimes.

    I like how he had stepped up this year. We've figured out his limitations and his special talents and are using him as close to perfect ad possible. Resign is okay by me but only, obviously, for the right price. To many contracts coming up soon to overspend for any players other then the stars. Sherman, Chancellor etc

    Anyone want to make me a new signature? I've held out hope long enough.
