SEATTLE -- Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate pivoted, launched and sent Dallas linebacker Sean Lee into the air, then onto his back with a clean, explosive hit. The block sprung quarterback Russell Wilson for a scrambling first down. More important, it encapsulated the Seahawks’ bullying ways Sunday in a 27-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys (1-1) in Seattle’s home opener in CenturyLink Field. Marshawn Lynch finished that same fourth-quarter drive with a three-yard touchdown run to put the Seahawks (1-1) in control, 27-7, with 7:35 remaining. Lynch, known as “Beast Mode” around Seattle, carried 26 times for 122 yards. Wilson’s home debut was crisp. He finished 15 of 20 for 151 yards and a touchdown. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo was pressured, harassed and occasionally drilled by the fervent Seahawks defense and finished 23 of 40 for 251 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Dallas tight end Jason Witten took a big hit in the ribs from Seattle strong safety Kam Chancellor in...

There is no doubt football is a violent game but this hit on Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee by Golden Tate was vicious.
Tate even celebrated after the hit, crawling to the ground and then pointing to his name on the jersey.
Not sure it was right to celebrate a hit where the player didn’t even know it was coming? Then again, Tate is a wide receiver.
Lee would be taken off...
According to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN in Seattle, Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate will start on Sunday in place of Braylon Edwards.

I know many people believe that the Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate should be fined for lighting up Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee during yesterday’s game. But I’ll break down why the hit is clean in my opinion.
Lee was not a defenseless player. Tate hit him straight on and not on the side.
Lee failed to guard himself and keep his head on a swivel.
Tate didn’t lead with...
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate is 5'10", 202 lbs. Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee is 6'2", 245 lbs. Leverage and the element of surprise = Golden Tate de-cleating Sean Lee.

The Seahawks weren’t very pleasant hosts to the Cowboys this weekend. Seattle’s running game had their way with the Cowboys’ defense, rushing for 182 yards on 41 carries on their way to a 27-7 win. Golden Tate knocked the stuffing out of Dallas linebacker Sean Lee. And after the game, drunken Seattle slobs ganged up on some Cowgirls fans.
WARNING: Spicy language.
This is yet another opportunity to call out the replacement refs as they missed a huge illegal block delivered to Sean Lee from Golden Tate, one of Seattle’s many hopeful playmakers.
This week Seattle’s entire team can take on the title ‘Beast Mode’ as they smash a Cowboys team who looked great in their opener against the Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Their success...

The NFL is a funny thing. Some weeks teams click on all cylinders. Everything in the playbook works, the ball bounces the right way, and the team likely enjoys a great deal of success. But then, with no rhyme or reason, there are games like the one we just saw the Dallas Cowboys play this afternoon. Games in which everyone is out of sync, (almost) nothing in the playbook works...
The Seattle Seahawks have not had good luck against the Dallas Cowboys ever since the famed Wild Card game with the fumble heard ’round the world between the two teams. Since that game, Seattle has had to travel to Dallas for each matchup.
This time…Dallas comes back to Seattle where Tony Romo is probably still having nightmares about.
After last week’s loss...
