The former Notre Dame star Golden Tate struggled early in his career but has turned on the Jets recently. Along with the explosion on the scene called Russell Wilson, Tate is making his presence known and making crunch time plays that have the Seahawks at 7-5.
His late game touchdown helped beat the Chicago Bears and sent the Seahawks soaring. In 2012, Tate has 35 catches for 486 yards and 7 touchdowns. Tate spoke to KJR in Seattle with Mitch Levy about his late game touchdown.
“I knew at some point I was going to get the ball and it was up to me what I was going to do with it. Was it going to be a five yard play or was I going to turn it into more? Once I got the ball in my hands I wanted to find a way to get into the end zone.
I didn’t know if I was going to have to run all across the field to get in or what I was going to do but I wanted it, I just, all it was, I wanted it so bad and already had gotten tripped up once on a walk-in touchdown earlier in the game I thought so I didn’t want it to happen again. 100 percent just wanting to do it.”
“It happens so quick that I don’t remember, I can just remember the play. I remember it being a touchdown, I remember at the end just kind of diving. I don’t remember how many tackles I broke or any of that. It all happened so quickly.
I was just trying to get into the end zone. I can’t explain it, it’s a gift I have. I caught the ball, scanned the field quick and just did me. I turned into a running back and just found a way.
Great play call, great block by the offensive line, Russell threw it right on the dot, I caught it, had a chance to scan the field, saw a lot of guys there but I knew they were in a zone so I was just working my way through all of them and found a way to the end zone and it was a touchdown, what we thought was going to be the game winner but turned out not to be the case.
Brandon Marshall made a heck of a play coming back, we go to overtime and then next thing I know we take the ball 80 yards and ran the ball easy. It was great to see that. That was two drives right there back-to-back and it shows a lot of heart from our offense to do that.”

Pete Carroll knows it’s going to be tough going forward in a passing league and losing two cornerbacks for the rest of the regular season. Brandon Browner gave up his futile fight so he could get on with his punishment. Though it’s not official, Richard Sherman should suffer the same fate. Losing half of your secondary is a devastating blow in a playoff run and now the Seahawks...

Christmas came early
No, that wasn’t a typo in the paper, or some sort of glitch on your TV screen Sunday afternoon, the Seattle Seahawks actually won a game on the road against a good Bears team.
It all seemed to fall into place after that non-call when Doug Baldwin pushed off to make the catch to extend the drive in overtime.
Just like the Packers game, I don’t care if...
Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times is reporting that Seahawks defensive back Brandon Browner has dropped his appeal and will server a four-game suspension for violating the league’s PED policy.
“Browner’s apparent decision to drop his appeal reflects the difficulty in fighting a positive test for a banned substance,” writes O’Neil. “A player is considered responsible...
Brandon Browner didn't mind being forced to sit out the final four games of the regular season due to suspension because it was fun watching his Seattle Seahawks continue to roll toward the postseason.
''It was fun because we were kicking everyone's butt. I was missing not playing with the guys but it was awesome to watch from that perspective,'' Browner...

A Developing Rivalry
It’s amazing to me how rivalries come and go in the NFC West. Back in 2004 when the Seattle Seahawks finally rose to the top of the NFC West, there was no team more hated in Seattle than the St. Louis Rams. Today’s Seahawks fans look past a game with the Rams without a second thought.
In 2011 and 2012 most people will tell you that the biggest NFC West rival...
