Well, I have stuck with that avatar since I joined this site. Been waiting for Tate to click, I think he's there. Thanks to RW for his stunning performance, that was clutch, dude has "it" and so does Golden. These two are going to be fun to watch for years to come!

Amen. As a long standing and much maligned Tate backer, I am very happy to see this season's performance. Just goes to show that you can't always be knee-jerk when it comes to developing talent. Sometimes patience is rewarded.

The same could be said Okung, IMO. Minus a few hiccups earlier this season, he's been the bright spot of our O-Line. Not long ago, many were ready to call him a bust.

I am very happy to see Tate finally come into that ability the coaches saw and fans hoped he could show. It looks like it's clicking for him now. I think Wilson has had a HUGE motivational influence on Tate. They should be a fun duo to watch for years to come.

It's like the little people's army. The oompaloompa squad. They're short!

I love how bizzaro the Hawks are! A 5'10" quarterback and reciver but 6'4" corners; usually it's the other way around. We have a DT that weighs 270 and a DE that weighs 320. We have aStrong Saftey that's as big as one of our DE's! I think our next place kicker should be a girl, a transgendered person or an amputee. That'd be hella awesome!

Wasn't there already an amputee in the league at some point? A kicker with half a foot or something like that?

Didn't he play for the Saints?

Or did he kick the FG against the Saints? hmmm....

BTW Golden Tate supporter since day 1 here too! Not meaning to brag lol :)

It was hard defending him early on, but he's payed off so that's nice!

in 1978 Efren kicks a 46 yarder to beat the Raiders twice in a single season, back then it was HUGE, raider haders and all..

he got even bigger when he kicked 3 on monday night in 79 to beat the Jets, originally a Cowboy he played with the Seahawks from 78-81 and there was a lot of buzz surrounding this guy back then and he inspired many a freshman to become kickers...


I'll always remember Efren Herrera, like to see some of his kicks again

if anyone ever thought Herrera wasn't the man better have a look, remember Monday night against Atlanta?

BIG PLAY@52 secs

This is so true. You're both right about Tate and Okung.

When this season started, I kept thinking of Jordy Nelson whenever I would think of Golden Tate. Like Golden, Jordy was drafted in the second round with moderately high expectations. Like Golden, his first two seasons were nothing spectacular and Packers fans were wondering if he'd ever fully realize his potential. Then, in his 3rd year, Nelson made moderate progress but so far Tate is further along in development when considering the two at the same point in their careers.

We all know what Nelson did for the Packers last season, his 4th, in which he established all kinds of career highs. Now, he's one of Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets, although he's been banged up this season.

I was hoping that Tate would be able to elevate his game much like Nelson has and it appears that he's a year "ahead of schedule." Dude's making big play after big play and despite the San Francisco game, has had the best hands on the team for the past 2 seasons, no question. I'm thinking big things are on the horizon for the remainder of this season, the playoffs, and next year and beyond.

Good stuff guys.
