  • Tate celebrated his action, im not surprised, most thugs do!
  • I couldnt believe that the "officials" called the push out of bounds, but not the personal foul... WTF... i would have loved see Sean Lee go face to face agains Tate. Not much celebration there... And once again Tate gets another steal vs the packers offensive foul before the ball touch the hands of anyone on the seattle vs packers game...
  • Nice dunnn a nahhh dunn a nahhh great hit no one hurt and nothing illegal its always nice to see a WR get a smack in when he can!
  • Totally an Illegal Hit. Leading with the Crown of the helmat to the helmet of Lee. Should have been a 15 yarder and fined for the hit.
  • Tate has a golden reputation within his communities. Know a person before passing judgement.
