  • Good interview. Hopefully we can find a restructure with rice/miller to keep Tate.

  • I really hope he sticks around. He and Wilson seem to really have good chemistry. Lets hope Rice and Miller are willing to restructure to help keep the band together.

  • What an excellent interview! I love how Golden got overwhelmed a few times when thinking about the possibilities with this squad. He sounds like a diehard. Gotta love that.

    Golden's about to have a HUGE season this year. His career so far has almost mirrored that of Jordy Nelson's his first 3 years in the league. It wasn't until year 4 that he broke out and established himself. I think Tate does the same this season. He sounds ready to lace em up and go right now! The whole team does!

  • I really like Golden Tate. I think he's a dynamic player and I hope there's a way we can keep Harvin, Tate, and Baldwin for several more years. I really like Rice too, but I can't see him being around next year unless his deal get's restructured.

    I think he's very valuable to the team and has a knack for making big plays. I keep thinking of the big catches he made against the Jets (for a TD), the one against Miami along the sideline when he went to the ground and still caught it. The long pass against the Bears in the first half, All of those show his tremendous body control and ability to go get the ball. I love that.

  • Tate is a playmaker. He is a little quirky but he is coming along nicely as a pro. He may not be able to be re-signed after this year but I am hoping they can figure out a way. He may have been in many folks eyes a Harvin-lite, I see nothing wrong with having both of these guys on the field at the same time. This season will prove that out one way or the other.

    Loved his line of thinking in the interview and his honesty in his concerns when Harvin came on-board.

  • The amount of disrespect Golden Tate gets on this board really pisses me off.

    Dude is a baller and totally broke out last year. He had a huge hand in several of our biggest wins last year (Green Bay, Chicago, Minnesota) and was a huge factor in our almost come from behind playoff win at Atlanta. He even threw a fricken TD pass (no bonus points given for style). Guy's a fricken stud, yet people think he still doesn't deserve to be here this season. Pathetic...

    Golden's going to make a lot of people look really stupid after this season.
    So you're admitting I'm a celeb...

    I agree.

    There was a point last year where both Tate and Rice were catching TD's consistenty. They turned into a legitimate threat over these games.
    If we could keep Tate for a reasonable sum, I'd do it. I think he ready to have a great year. It sounds like from the interview he finally get it and
    understands the importance of putting in the time in the classroom.

    I've never been more excited for both an offense and defense and their potential. I can't wait for training camp.

    And what that pass lacked in style it made up for in accuracy. That was not the easiest throw to make and Tate put it right in Rice's hands.

  • Tate has pulled our tails out of the fire in a few games.

    The idea that we are somehow made any better with his loss OR that we somehow will be just as good without him, is folly.

    The guy is not just very very good, but also driven. Once he gets the ball he is a careening and spinning dervish with no other need in the world save to get the first down or get to the end zone.

    Those guys are rare.

    He isn't getting respect on this team because he took a few years to break out, but he is absolutely one of the most dangerous players on our offense. I really hope we don't screw up and not bother to keep him.

  • The more and more I see of Golden, the less and less I see Percy Harvin and instead see Steve Smith (Carolina one). Undersized but with the ability to go up and fight for the ball as if he were much bigger. I think Golden's going to be our Steve Smith/Jordy Nelson type guy who can just make a play on the ball in the air and rack up tough yards after the catch. I'm hoping he stays long-term.

    Plus, he's a good example of a guy who unlike Chancellor, Sherman, Thomas, Wilson, etc. didn't have the immediate success and was kind of on thin-ice at one point, or so it seemed. He responded beautifully and is making Pete and John look pretty smart. I'm thinking they'll reward him much in the way they've rewarded Chancellor, although probably not as expensive.

  • Harvin is all we hoped 'Korn' could be. His elusiveness comes in the form of insane cuts and bursts of speed. Tate is one quick, shifty, slippery, TOUGH SOB. He reminds me of Hines Ward in some ways. Darrell Jackson in others.

    I've supported cutting Tate for the last 2 years but I think he found a nitch as a frantic go to guy for Wilson. His high speed motor seems to fit that roll well. Tate has done some impressive things after the catch but I still can't help holding my breath during his plays.

    Baldwins numbers fell off last year but imo he is more dependable than Tate and I expect adding Harvin will create a more competitve atmosphere.

    As long as he has a good preseason I doubt he will be cut.

    He's not getting cut regardless of how he does this preseason. That would be insane. Badwin/Harvin/Rice/Tate are the sure things on this receiving corps for 2013.

    That sentence was poorly constructed on my part. I know Jordy Nelson's a big dude, was a big fan of his when he was coming out of K State. Meant to say that I think Tate is more like Steve Smith and that I can see him being up there with Smith and Nelson as some of the better jump ball guys in the league. I've been pimping Golden all off-season to follow the Jordy Nelson career path and absolutely go off this season.

    I was very skeptical of Tate early last year but he's grown on me. He was nothing short of amazing in clutch situations. Ability to snatch the ball at the highest point possible as well as RAC skills saved games... literally saved games. Doug had some great "hands" moments though.

  • Tate will definitely not be cut since he's one of the only two WRs on the team that can play effectively on the outside.

    Which is funny because when I first heard about him and saw his kick return stats I immediately thought "must be another Jeremy Bloom." Then, a few weeks later, I actually saw K State play and thought it was kind of funny that he was actually pretty big and pretty damn fast!
