Golden Tate has spent most of this week hearing his name being brought up in debates about whether his block on Dallas' Sean Lee was legal or not.
It apparently was not legal as the Seattle wide receiver was hit with a hefty fine by the NFL. Tate said Thursday that he intends to appeal the fine, but that within the appeal, he wasn't going to receive clarification on what he should do differently in the future.
What the Seahawks hope Tate continues to do is catch passes. After sitting out the season opener against Arizona with a knee injury, Tate had three receptions for 38 yards - all of them for first downs - and the one cracking block on Lee to highlight his 2012 debut.

In my eyes it was a good hit. In Pete Carroll's eyes it was a good hit. (By good we mean legal of course)

The Seattle Seahawks are facing arguably their toughest opponent of the year this weekend. Come Monday night, the Green Bay Packers will be squaring off with Seattle in CenturyLink for some Monday Night Football action.

A number of mixed opinions have surfaced since Greg Schiano ordered the Bucs to play hard until the final whistle against the Giants last Sunday. Tom Coughlin was the most upset about it and Justin Tuck didn’t seem too far behind. Jerry Jones thinks the kneel-down play should be eliminated altogether and we here at LBS don’t see what all the fuss is about. Neither does Pete...

He’s nicknamed “Beast Mode” for a reason. Just ask the New Orleans Saints to flash back to the 2010 playoffs for an answer. Or ask the Dallas Cowboys, who were run over by him last Sunday. Marshawn Lynch will be a unique physical challenge for the Packers on Monday night in Seattle.
